...that's when I learned it was Todd Slater

While meandering through this endless labyrinth we know as the internet I happened upon a great artist and designer whose work inspired me very much. His name is Todd Slater and his gallery of show posters references some of my absolute favorites in art, music, and film. Slater not only captures the spirit of these cult favorites with his psychedelic, pop art style, but he adds an unforgettable visual element to each event. He has designed posters for Radiohead and Lady Gaga, as well as my personal favorites, Ween and Umphrey's Mcgee. His works pay tribute to cult classics like Evil Dead, Star Wars and Alice in Wonderland. One of his poster designs was even inspired by the French Post-Impressionist, Toulouse Lautrec, paying homage to one of the greatest printmakers of the 19th century. I must say that I like where this artist's head is at. His gallery has become a beautiful fusion of everything great in pop and underground culture.
