Trying to appeal to both nerds and normal people can be tough, like when that Nobel-winning physicist tried to cross into mainstream pop with Rawking With Hawking, and failed to score even one hit singularity. Doing it via posters: Aesthetic Apparatus
From a pair of self-professed "socially awkward music and design nerds" who smartly uprooted from Madtown to the Minneapple, this geeky-but-not-too-geeky design studio cut its teeth creating concert ads, but has since ventured into crafting less topical screen-printed poster art the guys claim "will break your heart and drink your blood"...so yeah, their self-assessment checks out. Highlights from their epic collection include
Mr. Spoon N. Cherry
One of AA's four new MN-nice-themed prints, the Walker's iconic Cherry and Spoon have gone all Night At the Museum and come alive above a tiny, smiley-faced state outline in this vintage-looking number printed on "mushroom stock", which like all shares, are bought under the presumption that they'll get high
Vade Retro Satana
Rocking shiny metallic gold and silver on archival black paper, this number is intended as a talisman to keep your home free of evil, and translates to "Step Back Satan", also what Boston bouncers used to say to an inebriated Miroslav after Bruins losses
Should something more one-off be your bag, AA also sells signed and numbered one-of-a-kind test prints, which're the products of dialing in the screen-printing process for each poster, and show marks, scars, and other evidence of their "previous life", which Hawking would point out there's reason to believe in...on a track backed by Lil Jon and Chris Breezy.
