Poster of the Week: Strange Boys, The Coathangers and Bad Sports At The Lounge On Elm Street Friday
Right away, it struck me as a fantastic example of Heimer's distinctive surrealistic, nightmarish style. The similarities between humans and apes and monkeys can make our simian cousins appear cute or uncanny; here, the mob of spectators to this execution falls squarely in the latter category.
The version above is taken from Heimer's blog (where you can see an even higher-resolution version), and looks a bit different from another version floating around on the Web, as it has a creme-colored background rather than white.
And, by the way, if you're interested in the show, DC9 just might be able to get you in for free--which will save you a few bucks you could put toward a print of the poster. Check back with us in the morning...
