Dan, Dan, the poster man . . .
No one really calls him that, (I think?) I just made it up now, needed a clever intro, yeah, I know, i’m reaching. Anyway, one of my favorite poster artists, Dan Stiles, just made some of his recent work available online at www.danstiles.com
I’ve been a fan for years, and as i’m writing this, i’m looking at some of his works of art hanging on my wall. His art is in high demand, and he’s created custom, limited edition posters and other clever merch and collectibles for just about every band/musician you can imagine, for well over a decade.
And once it’s gone, that’s all folks! Resellers have been know to snatch up his poster art in bulk, sit on the goods, and once they sell out on Stiles’ official site, release them, and resell his work for up to $500.00 a poster. (Maybe more, but that’s what i’ve come across in my latest searches.)
So, i’ve wised up, I go straight to the source as soon as Stiles’ puts new work on his site, I pick a few favorites, and get them while they last at an amazingly great price. (Practically a steal in my opinion!) Cause like I said, once they’re gone, the probability that i’ll have to break my piggy bank to get my hands on one is high, I could very easily go broke fast. However, the flipside is that all good art appreciates in value, such is the case with Stiles’ work, so my little addiction is actually an awesome investment!
Alas, here are the latest, there are plenty more waiting for you on his official site, where you’ll have the opportunity to have a really hard time making a decision on which posters you want to nab.
You can also peep one of his Sigur Ros posters that accompanies the great “Mish Mix” – 100 Favorite Tracks of 2008, Selected by Top Music Industry Tastemakers. (And unfortunately, this poster sold out a while ago.)
