Something that happens to me more than I’d like to admit: I see something BEAUTIFUL, I stop and question how I feel about the principle behind it, and then I swiftly forget about principles altogether because, oh yeah, it’s fucking beautiful.

I could argue this is commodifying the anti-consumerist punk spirit, but like, among punk fans, I probably lead the least “HxC/DIY” lifestyle fan of ‘em all… plus I like these. The color combinations are really what get me. Some favorites:
“Gotta catch ‘em all!” I mean… you can purchase the posters here.
