Pin Down Girls Posters
I did a variety of posters, handbills and newspaper ads for this very ambitious benefit for 826 Seattle, an after-school writing and tutoring program. “Pin Down Girls” was a very entertaining night of girls tag team wrestling. A more nostalgic, campier version of what you see today. I wanted to do a “boxing style” poster, similar to the big traveling rock and roll in the 50’s and 60’s.
I added coarse screens to the photos, and the kerning on the text is really random. The large format poster was actually silkscreened which was a first for one of my projects. I’ve always tried to make my files resemble screened posters, it was a great to see the real thing.
