20th Anniversary Poster from Hugh D’Andrade

July 16th, 2012 by hughillustration

Now, in addition to Mona Caron’s brilliant poster, we have two more posters by local artists celebrating the 20th anniversary of Critical Mass, coming up this September.

This poster is by yours truly, Hugh D’Andrade. I tried to create a poster that would communicate some of the energy, excitement, complexity and diversity of Critical Mass. At first I struggled between which of these two color schemes worked best:

Then I tried a multi-color approach, and since that got the best response from friends, I used that for the poster (12″x24″) and the other two color schemes for handbills (5″ x 11.5″).

Jim Swanson has also created a poster!

Buy one! You can get copies of each of these posters as well as the new book about Critical Mass, “Shift Happens,” on this page. All sales benefit the artists and 20th anniversary plans.

    I wonder if one of the single colored posters would shrink down very well for a spoke card?!?! What do you think if they were halfed again to 2.5″ x 5.75″?

  2. Oh yeah — do it! Also, there will be small (about that size) sticker versions being handed out at the next ride!

    So, is there a way to download a high enough quality one to print out and make my own spoke cards? Or can I buy a digital copy of the two top ones (one for each side of the card)? FYI, I love bike party and I love the unique and often clever spoke cards people come up with for each ride. So having a 20 anniversary spoke card would be cool!
