Sylvias Ghost Show Posters: 1994-1998

Here’s an incomplete collection of posters for my old band Sylvias Ghost. As you may know, these posters are plastered all over utility poles, boards, record stores, and the clubs where the bands are playing. I can’t remember how many we made over the years. I always saw the need for name recognition over whether people even came to the show, hence the name on the posters is always large enough to read from a car passing by at 35 MPH. Keep in mind that Photoshop was in its infancy in these days, so all these posters were done at Kinkos in Word, printed, photocopy zoom-to-fit, and cut-and-paste.

This one was a collaboration with Laura. She did the artwork and I did the layout and text. A 2-color silkscreen version of this was also produced.

This is one of my favorites. I love the campy b-horror movie feel of it.

We always joked about "Memento Mori" really meaning "Remember Mori". Remember Mori? Yeah, he was a good guy. Too bad about what happened to Mori . . .
