Inspiration when in need

I've been trying to keep this in my head to reference when I might need it. And you know how trying to remember a list goes... it's stressful. So here it goes:
— Lyrics from a song (more importantly a Beatles song) 
— Think/talk bubble poster
— Elephant poster
— 2 color Japanese print
— Textures make image
— Es or other letters
— Old Movie (Hitchcock)
— Typographic
— Update British Keep Calm poster
— Crazy Type Monster Poster
— Bearded Lady
— Clip Art mirror images
— A Day on Earth
— Green
— Moulin Rouge
— Peace
— Political Statement
— For Bodegas Terras Gauda (winery)
— Centered Image with type below
— Street Sign (funny foreign)
— Layer Transparent colors
— There's always band posters

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!

March Poster 4

Created March 26th. When I started this poster I was thinking about the background patterns of the beautiful paintings in "Garden and Cosmos: The Royal Painting of Jodhpur" a show I recently saw at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. I started off working on the pattern but things kind of went awry when my thoughts turned to rummage sales.

Poster Shows!!!

Attended a panel discussion of some of Seattle's top poster artists at EMP (wednesday) and The Stranger's Poster of the Week opening (last night) at Vermillion.

Designers that spoke at EMP were:
Barry Ament, Coby Schultz
Ames Bros.

Don Clark, Ryan Clark

Art Chantry
Art Chantry Design Co.

Jeff Kleinsmith
Patent Pending Industries, Sub Pop

Also got to see some of: American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print.

Have a couple of pictures to upload and add. I took a lot of notes and sketched, because that is what you do when you get a chance to list to such people talk about work, feeling inspired, motivated, and creative. I need attend more such lecture type events because it reminds me of being in school and that feeling like I can go out and do anything.

March Poster 2

Created the second week of March. Inspired by the retro 1971 posters by Scott Hansen. This last year was very difficult for me therefore, 2009 is something that I am very optimistic about I decided to celebrating with a poster.
