Working on a Chip Kidd Coffee Hour poster was a dream come true. He was one of the first graphic designers I discovered when I was younger, and I’ve always thought his book covers were astute and unpredictable. His love of Batman is something fierce, and I paid tribute to his fandom with a simple, hand-illustrated/written poster, which was then hand screen printed.
We only made 50 posters, and he signed them after his talk. I snapped a few portraits before his presentation, and he signed my poster with a little sly camera humor.
