Jimi Hendrix by Kubah Jimi Hendrix by Kubah
A project for my typography class. I had to create a typographical poster by hand that
was specific to a certain decade of my choosing. I decided on the late 60's.
Not sure what kind of paper I used but it was stapled to a Bainbridge board.

The words surrounding him say:

"When I was a little boy, I believed that if you put a tooth under your pillow,
a fairy would come in the night and take away the tooth and leave a dime.
Now, I believed in myself more than anything."

His afro says:
"Jimi Hendrix Experience."

The bubbles say:
"One night only"
"Friday may 10th."

In between the bubbles it says:
"Independence Hall."

What attracted me to this first was the fact that it's Hendrix...and Hendrix is awesome. :D But I really like the piece for its own merits. It feels like what graffiti would have been like in the 60s, and the text certainly helps.
