Jay Ryan Metropolis, Poster Children and Band of Horses Posters

Jay Ryan dropped three new posters on his site. Above is the very colorful print made recently for his good friends at Metropolis Coffee Company here in Chicago. Jay lost count, but this is something like the eighth print he's made for these Chicago heroes since they opened about a decade ago.

 Poster Children are one of Jay Ryan's favorite bands, and were the biggest band in town while he was in school in Champaign, Illinois, in the early 1990s. Recently they've been touring in support of the re-release of their landmark "Daisychain Reaction" album. Historically, the band members are regarded as computer nerds, blogging while on tour before anyone else was doing it, so Jay made sure to include an Apple IIe, as well as a couple other hidden references.

Band of Horses Jackson Poster. The band has a very identifiable type treatment they always use on albums, so Jay wanted to work with that as a textual starting point.
