Hallucination Generation

This is a collage I created in July 2012 using random images from old scanned newspapers (you can find them at news.google.com/newspapers – link opens in a separate tab/window). It’s a poster for a non-existent event, and the background gradient is based on those used for band posters in the ’60s at places like The Fillmore. Click to enlarge (1561×2118 pixels – opens in a separate tab/window). Credits below.
