If you’re looking for an inspiration today, look no further than Jacob Barnett.
I like his mom’s concept of “muchness”: Surrond children with what they love, be it art, science, sports or whatever, and they will develop more fully than molding them to a design would ever allow.

I mention gig posters a lot, here are some of the ones I have (the two Hey Rosetta! ones at the bottom will be arriving soon)
All but two of posters in my collection are screen prints, the exceptions being Ben Howard & Penfold, which are high quality Giclée prints. The biggest ones I have are the Ben Howard and Touche Amore ones which are both 36x24 (3 feet by 2 feet), The Ben Howard poster was formally used in the London Underground to promote his debut album. Every year the Polaris Prize (the Canadian Version of the Mercury Music Prize) shortlists 10 albums for the award, and these 10 albums have posters created. Polaris Prize Posters in my collection include Arcade Fire, Hey Rosetta! and Shad.
Ironically, some of my favorite bands aren’t represented in my collection - The Avett Brothers, Brand New & La Dispute for example - the first two have so many different poster designs it’s hard to pick a favourite and i’ve yet to find a design I like for La Dispute.
