Better late than never, right? Last week’s poster pick is for the 2012 Pitchfork Festival by one of Chicago’s finest: illustrator and designer Johnny Sampson. I love these bizarre creature illustrations: part animal, part robot, and 100% freaky monster. Each one made that much more believable by the classic scientific diagram labeling, typeset by Michael Renaud. Another fine poster by Johnny Sampson, riding that line between beautiful, grotesque, and tongue-in-cheek.
