No Words Posters

New book by Armando Milani,
No Words Posters  published by Rochester Institute of Technology Press, is a collection
of nearly 200 posters by over 100 designers from around the world.
Milani has selectively gathered a visual repertoire of images that transcend the
written word to deliver a unique perspective
on social issues.

I am very pleased that several of my posters were featured in the book.

The Lion, poster

I just finished a poster illustration for The Lion, A Personal Musical Journey 
written and performed by Benjamin Scheuer at Arena Stage theater in Washington DC. 
The poster is art directed by Nicky Lindeman. 

"It only takes 70 minutes for singer/songwriter Benjamin Scheuer to win your heart and then 
break it in the acclaimed new one-man-musical The LionThrough song, Scheuer tells the story 
of his complicated relationship with his late father and his own battle with cancer at age 29. 
Yes, it’s heavy but it’s just fantastic."  —BroadwayBox.com

Graphic Style Lab

In his new book Graphic Style Lab, Develop Your Own Style With 50 Hands-On Experiences, Steve Heller is posing questions "Should I have a personal style?", "What is style?" and "Is it right to borrow styles?"

I don't know exactly which one of these questions is answered by entry no. 50, my poster "Design, Money and..." designed for a lecture at AIGA Dallas/Fort Worth in 2010, but here it is.
