Sled Island Posters

One of the highlights of Calgary summers in recent years has been the fantastic Sled Island festival. This year's favorite include hometown girl Feist, The Hold Steady, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Andrew WK, and dozens of others. It's not a typical music festival that takes place in a single park or venue, but rather spreads out over dozens of venues throughout the city, and is not only a music festival, but involves a film and visual arts component as well.

Part of that visual component is a poster show, where talented local artists design gig posters for some of the headline acts, which are then silk-screened by local printers. One of those printers is friend of UPPERCASE Alden Alfon

Here's Alden printing the Andrew WK poster at Burnt Toast Studio, by illustrator Abby Fong.
