This Saturday in San Francisco, the Rock Poster Society
and American Poster Institute
are teaming up for Flaststock 25 -- By the Bay, a huge rock poster show in Golden Gate Park's Hall of Flowers. The event is from 10am to 6pm. We suggest making a day of it by bouncing between the Boing Boing Picnic
, 11am-3pm in Doughboy Meadows, and the poster show! Seen here, event posters by David Welker (above left), Carolyn Ferris (above right), and Dave Hunter (below). Ben Marks, of the terrific Collectors Weekly
, wrote up a preview of Flatstock 25 -- By the Bay for KQED:
Among the artists who will be exhibiting in San Francisco are Flatstock co-founders Geoff Peveto and Frank Kozik, who has made a name for himself in recent years designing collectible toys for Kidrobot (his Dunnies are usually the ones wearing a scowl and puffing a cigarette)...
Representing the West Coast and TRPS is Carolyn Ferris, whose loose, psychedelic, red-and-purple mermaids floating amid flowers and leaves could not be more different from Welker's singular illustration. Also on hand will be Mark Spusta, who was selected to create a poster for TRPS in 2008, and Gary Houston of Voodoo Catbox, whose 2009 TRPS poster freely riffed on one of the most famous images in rock, Rick Griffin's flying eyeball, which was inspired by Von Dutch and used by Griffin in 1968 to advertise a Jimi Hendrix concert at the Fillmore and Winterland.
