coffee + cre8tive {may 4 ’06}

coffee + cre8tive {may 4 '06}
There’s a rock star inside of us all. Admit it. Imagine, a sea of devoted fans screaming your name as you belt out lyrics of love gone very wrong, effortlessly strumming your guitar in $700 designer jeans. We all want a piece of that.

Unfortunately, with most of us barely qualified to belt out, “Lucky Star” during a very late night karaoke session, we may have to put our dreams of touring the world on hold.

I just love these posters from Strawberry Luna, a screen printer and designer born and raised in Philadelphia. She designs the best concert posters ever, along with a whole slew of other cool prints. Visit her online to read her bio and browse her posters and prints.

Go ahead, unleash your inner rock star. Just don’t grab a mic. Throw up a few posters instead.
