Description

YOU is one letterpress poster in a series of four posters: SEE YOU LATER ALLIGATOR. The headline YOU is a hand-carved linocut. The body copy was printed with vintage lead type. The image was drawn and carved by Tacoma artist, Jeremy Gregory,  and was first used in September of 2004.

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.
