Matt Marello - Philly Posters

Matt Marello Ripley Poster 1
Matt Marello may not know this, but he was an icon to me during my time in at the Philadelphia College of Art (1981-1984). His hand-bill posters were everywhere. He drew imagery that seemed miles away from the bands they were supposed to be advertising. I found these three beauties in my file, and thought I would share them.

Matt has a blog where you can see a ton of his work... Including the "Pleasure and the Beast" poster shown here.

Matt... The piece that hooked me on your work was "Beth's Tongue Is 6 Inches Long"... which I don't own.

Great stuff from the early 80s.
