Description

This was one letterpress poster in a series of four posters: SEE YOU LATER ALLIGATOR. The eye image is a vintage plate and the text was printed with vintage wood type. The SEE image was carved from wood with a mid-20th century Dremel-like tool.

Here’s how this series came about:

Lance said, “I want to make a series of posters based on a four-word phrase.” Lance was thinking the phrase would be about truth, beauty, or world peace.

Tom said, “OK, here’s the phrase: SEE YOU LATER ALLIGATOR.”

Lance sighed, then went to work.

The words on all four posters read this way:

See the lion,/see the lamb,/adjacent on/the diagram./You can sleep/beside a leopard/when a lion/is your shepherd./Sometimes lions/make you wait,/because a king/is never late./Lambs and lions/will sleep together,/but not tonight./Not ’til later./For now us lambs/just lie awake/and dream of wolves/and alligators.
