July 15th found me once again in The Post Family’s Family Room for another show opening. This time, the show was Cantankerous Hellfighter, a collaboration between gig poster giants Delicious Design League and Aesthetic Apparatus. As you probably already know, I’m a huge DDL fan. Jason and Billy are really great people in addition to great designers, and it was nice to meet the faces behind Aesthetic Apparatus too.
As for the work itself, it was hard to see where one studio left off and the other picked up. Jason mentioned that each poster was passed back and forth with the printing split between the two studios. The result? A wonderful blend of both studios and some really awesome work.
The paper toys were fun, but I would have hated to cut up the posters myself…guess that’s when you buy two?
Those gold posters on the back wall were my personal favorites: the photo doesn’t really do the metallic ink justice.
All in all, it was a great night.
