With our Figment Concert Poster Contest in full swing I thought I’d clean out the ole bookmark list and give you some relevant links to check out.  So here it goes –

1.  Having trouble figuring out how to create an authentic rock poster?  Here’s a tutorial.

2.  Minneapolis truly is a rock poster design mecca with Lonny Unitus, Aesthetic Apparatus, FLORAFAUNA and Chuck Ungemach among others calling it home.

3.  It’s also great to read about a band like Os Tornados, a six-piece 50’s & 60’s inspired rock band out of Porto, Portugal, whose keyboardist prefers to draw or paint the band’s posters as a way of translating the band’s analog esthetic. While you’re at it check out their music, it’s great.

4.  And speaking of other great rock poster design mecca’s Portland, OR is no slouch either!

Well that’s it for now.  We have some great interviews coming up, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, if you have an article, site or other piece of interweb flotsam jetsam that you’d like to share let us know about it by posting it as a comment.  Until next time!

    These links look awesome! I can’t wait to investigate when I have time this evening, at home!

    The sample picture is awesome, too! Inspires me to dig out the paints! (NO promises!)

    Thanks again for kicking the dust offa this old fart – I can’t begin to tell you how helpful this site is and how appreciated it is to add in other related links, articles, etc.

    Hello there… “OS TORNADOS” are a rock n’ roll band from Porto, that’s correct, but not from Spain… Porto is in Portugal. Os Tornados are a portuguese band, not Spanish.
    Best for all of you.

    Manel – my apologies. Thanks for correcting that glaring error! I’ll make the change on our end, so as not to confuse people. Love your music and the wonderful posters!
