Based in Chicago, illustrator Rich Kelly makes limited-edition, screen-printed posters for bands, concerts (the poster pictured here was for a Dr. Dog show at the Vic Theatre on Oct. 21, 2010), and movies. There isn’t much out there about him or his work, though we did find this quote: “Before I started designing and printing posters for bands, my portfolio was specifically geared towards editorial illustration. I was particularly drawn to the narratives and visual metaphors that are prevalent in that kind of work, and try to carry that over to my poster/print work.” To see more of Kelly’s work, visit rfkelly.com.
