The Animal Series by Okayboss

It’s a pretty common fact that just about every other band out there is named after an animal. The biggest band the world’s ever seen were named after beetles and the trend hasn’t lost any steam, especially as of the last 15 years. With that in mind Okayboss has created a series of animal band inspired prints that feature his beautiful illustrations. The series so far includes Animal Collective, The Dodos, Grizzly Bear, Wolf Parade, Modest Mouse, Deerhunter, The Mountain Goats and Noah and the Whale.

I’m the first to admit that I’m kind of over prints in general, but hot damn is is his work amazing. It’s all so playful and colorful, like hard drugs for your eyeballs. My absolute favorite are the Animal Collective (top) and Wolf Parade (bottom) posters, there’s just so much life and exuberance to these, I can’t stop smiling over them.

Each poster measures in at 12″ x 16″, come in a limited edition of 50 and are printed on 310gsm Canson Rag Archival Fine Art paper. Each is only $45, which isn’t honestly too bad. And you’re in the mood for something larger there’s always the 18″ x 24″… Click here to visit the Okayboss Shop.
