Lately I have been on an exploitation film kick. Maybe it’s the over-the-top shamelessness, or most likely I am just a sucker for gorgeous women and retro type. Here are a few posters that I’ve found which are especially appetizing.

Up top is Mel Dogg chillin’ Sunday style. On second thought… this photo is pretty representative of most of her days. Lucky dog.

If you’re hip to the poster scene, I am sure you have heard of Jason Munn and The Small Stakes. As an aspiring print maker, it’s both inspiring and somewhat discouraging to see someone pump out such great work so consistently. Perfect example of how far simplicity can take a design.

Speaking of talent… illustrator Sarah A. King has some great work. Love the way she incorporates typography, very Sagmeisteresque. Especially like the bicycle.

Pulitzer-Prize winning comic artist, Art Spiegelman’s private sketchbook is being featured in an anthology titled Be A Nose!. This animated clip shows some of Spiegelman’s animation, paired up with Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney’s instrumentals. Definitely worth checking out via Pitchfork.
