Music lyrics poster style

Rounding out this week’s music-themed posts are these super sweet lyric posters. I’ve talked about my love of lyric posters before. I love this kind of art because it speaks to two parts of the soul – they look pretty of course but they can also be poignant. With lyrics, good lyrics, all they need is a fancy new font coat and a pretty picture in the background and you’re set.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s music posts. Keep an eye out for my first Ford Choose Your Own Adventure Challenge post!

Saatchi Online

I swear I could spend hours browsing through online art galleries like Saatchi. As you all know I’m a big fan of art and I’ve been steadily growing a collection, albeit a small one, for the last few years.

I seem to have a leaning towards moody landscapes and mixed media collage – although I do have a soft spot for intricate illustrations too. What kind of art appeals to your eyes?

Have a browse through Saatchi online but be warned – it won’t be a quick visit!

A new obsession

I have a little bit of a ‘thing’ for gig posters and I’ve decided that 2012 will be the year that I really jump in to some serious gig poster collecting. Here are some beauties that I would LOVE to add to my collection. Do you collect gig posters? I’d love to know!

Fifi du Vie

Nothing is real but dreams and love screenprinted poster – Fifi du Vie.

Everyone knows the adage about keeping things simple, right? A simple message conveyed by a simple design can be really powerful. It’s amazing what a few simple words can do for the soul.

Izabella from Fifi du Vie creates beautiful works of art, based on the simplest of sentences. And she does it so well. Have a look at her lovely creations at her Etsy store.
