Another death that makes me feel really old — Wes Wilson, the guy who did so many of the iconic Fillmore Auditorium posters in San Francisco during the late '60s hippie era. :frowning:

An original and iconic style, deserves to be up there with Alphonse Mucha, Jules Chéret etc. as a poster design pioneer.

3rd one down is on the cusp of reality.

Yes, I’ve heard of the black-masked, violent gangs of stormtrooper hoodlums right here in Boston throwing caustic concrete “milkshakes” at people.
Oh, wait…
