This week: Dude, what is up with the Chicago Poster scene?

Well. Mike Benedetto might know…

Turns out Mike dragged Steve Walters (the Chicago Poster Godfather) and Jay Ryan (national poster art phenomenon) into the Bad at Sports world to interrogate the scene they helped build, how they understand their art, and the future of this scene. Duncan’s world was changed forever.

  1. Salvador says:

    Thank you Bad at Sports!

    If anyone is curious, I have the hour long conversation available on one of my blogs:

    We talk more about comparisons to other biennials & other survey shows in Texas, and more details of changes to the ’09 edition.

  2. Balzac says:

    This was a particularly funny show. Less focuses than usual, but funny!

    Mike should do interviews more often.

  3. MJR says:

    Yo Mike, good interview. You’ve got the voice and face for radio.

  4. Mike we lover to hear you so much times. We are hard to hear to that man he hit you. You are not of a bad man but of a good man and that man who is Richard is a bad man and his monkey tail pennis we bet will be curly.

  5. Richard says:

    It is curly, but therefore more fun!

  6. Laurie Rojas says:

    These are the kind of shows that really make me come back! Love it. Funny as hell, yet, you had some pretty serious conversations.

    BTW, I usually hear you guys late at night when I am doing some design work that I don’t get paid for… so this one was more inspiring and motivational than most.

  7. Putananny says:

    What the hell is Xochi Solis, where did it come from, why does anyone let it curate anything and has it ever done anything of worth (not counting of course the finger paint globular looking sandwiches with stupid names)?

  8. I’ll be your loyal reader when you update your new post. I believe your blog will be famous some day. This is because I think you’ll post a good information that suitable for a lot of people
