Post’s throwups are super fun to look at. This little dude is taking a stealth photo of a spot most likely.

Maurice Sendak, who has given joy to the ages with his wonderful Wild Things books, also created posters for plays, book fairs, art events and Broadway shows, many of them including his brilliant Wild Things. We were verklempt when we learned about his little-known posters!

Simple and to the point. Poster with a horned “E” and good colors.

We love the way Parisian artist, OX, takes into account the surrounding environment when creating work on billboards. Here the artist creates a piece that plays with the viewers visual perception by just using simple colors and lines.

The National Poster Retrospecticus is a collection of hand printed event posters from artists, designers, and events around the country. This year, the tour is coming back--and bigger than ever, featuring over 300 posters from more than 75 artists travelling to seven cities across the US. We posted a scedule and some of last year's posters to whet your palette, so be sure to check 'em out (and maybe consider donating).

The Chaos Crew tattoo studio is well known in Munich and far beyond its city limits. They developed a poster that impressively shows the bavarian tattoo artists’ skills: just as tattoo motives tell countless stories, they interwove the most important events of 2011 into one huge tattoo. History was tattooed onto calfskin to promote the art of tattooing in its most authentic form – on real skin.

As evidence by Nintendo and Super Mario Bros, any bit of information can be processed through 8-bit graphics and be highly legible. It worked for Zelda, Mike Tyson, and Bases Loaded, and now it works for Hollywood, thanks to this 8-bit movie poster project by Eric Palmer. Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Kill Bill, all here. And you can order a print for yourself on Palmer's Behance profile.

Five years ago, I got myself in a bet to reach Mike Tyson (through 12 fighters) in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out without being hit by a challenger (sans Game Genie). That means no Glass Joe, King Hippo, Bald Bull, etc, could hit me. I succeeded, and promptly lost to Tyson in about 30 seconds. Now, there is a poster to show my achievements.
