London anarchist bookfair poster 2010

May 16th, 2010 · post by Edd · 4 Comments

I got to create the poster (and flier) for the London anarchist bookfair again this year. I decided to do something totally over complicated for the poster. I think there’s 50 different characters in the image. The idea is that the anarchist bookfair is help building up the circle ‘a’, because it’s a vital bit of the anarchist community. Deep! Anyhow, hopefully I’ll be getting it off to print this week – I think the bookfair collective are gonna go for the green, but I’ve included the blue because I think I like it more (but then I do have an obsession with blue). Either way I’ll look forward to seeing the finished result as a full A2 poster – I think it’s gonna look pretty mint. Oh I’ve also included a bit of detail from the poster at the bottom of this post because squashing an A2 poster down to 500px mushes out quite a lot of that! And also the ink sketch that started it all…

In other news some Greeks have borrowed the artwork from the 2009 poster for some protest or other – – apparently they’re from Thessaloniki, apparently the group is called “workers and unemployed for an independent – class labour movement” (which you’ve got to admit is a pretty catchy name!). Anyhow, cool I guess, even if they don’t credit the source of the image!
