Flatstock 17 Photos

I was lucky enough to attend the 17th Flatstock poster convention in Chicago this weekend, and it was seriously a great time.  If you haven’t been to one, make it a priority.  The poster scene is a very welcoming, small, tight-knit community, and it’s really cool to be a part of everything for a weekend.  These are just a few pictures, I have a picture of EVERY booth on my Flickr page.

  1. I was there. Good posters, lots of really nice people. Picked up two art prints. Got to meet a lot of people and put a face to some of these sites. Wasn’t interested in any of the bands at all, so that i can’t comment on. They had great food, if you haven’t gone to one, check it out.

  2. Great pics! Thanks! I wish I lived near a Flatstock. I’ve never been. I can’t believe there isn’t one in CA. Crazy.

  3. Good to meet ya, Mitch! Thanks for posting these photos.

  4. I look so lonely in the API booth

  5. Thanks for the photos Mitch. Wish I could have been there

  6. do you remember what the two posters are in that second Jay Ryan booth pic (on the left side of who I believe is Jay’s dad?)

  7. The big one right to his left was Jay’s Flatstock poster. To the left of that is Jay’s from the last Austin Flatstock poster. He also had a poster for The Ice Cream Man.

  8. I wish I didn’t live in Canada……well thats not true I just wish I had money so I could have been there, sounds like it was a good time.

  9. That looks great – also super expensive….. I saw on the walls loads of prints I wanted.
    I attend the RPS in San Francisco and its the same scene – Great to meet the artists, get signatures and have a good print chat.

  13. It was a blast.. glad I went back again this year. No doubt heading back again. It was great to finally meet some folks and artists i didn’t get to meet last year.
