Art Ensemble of Chicago Gig Posters

(...all images from over here...)

Along the lines of this post by the Nothing is New blog, I am really really inspired by these kind of handmade, vernacular posters announcing concerts by the super Art Ensemble of Chicago. They are so awkward and charming and I especially love the photocopied look on the standard pale pink, yellow and blue office paper. I wish I could design as freely and honestly as this - maybe someday.

There are some more AEC images around here on my tumblr (Thurs, Nov.20th), including this great logo and two youtube videos - (also here and here...)


PS. AEC did the soundtrack to this 1970 movie, Les Stances a Sophie. I hope I can see it at some point (via &)...
