Top 15 of 2014!

A New Year is upon us, and with that comes the First Annual I Got Birds Top 15 Posters of 2014! We thought about making a Top 10 but then said “Screw it, we’re going bigger“! So, without further ado, here are our…

Top 15 of 2014!

For those who think that the Ken Taylor or Jock “Halloween” posters are the ONLY ones to own, think again! Matt Tobin crushes it with his take on the “Halloween” mythos. Michael Myers is well-represented in his poster!

A Conversation with Chris Garofalo.


Recently, I Got Birds conducted their very first webcast with Chris Garofalo, aka Quiltface Studios. Being that this was our first time conducting a livestreaming Webcast, things did not go quite according to plan. Amazingly, I seemed to be the only participant buffering all over the place…stuttering and having video quality go wonky…Needless to say we hope future webcast quality will be improved and we’re working toward that goal.

On the plus side, and a HUGE plus it is, we got the opportunity to FINALLY speak with one of our favorite Illustrators, Chris Garofalo. Chris has been a big supporter of I Got Birds from the start, and we were thrilled that he took time away from his schedule to speak with us. We also had a co-host in the form of Tim McKenna from local design firm Azrael Group to help us out with questions, and the GOOD thing is that Tim didn’t seem to have any issues with buffering so his questions are smooth as silk. Yeah, that’s right, I said silk.

Anywho, we hope you guys get a chance to check out the webcast, and we’re hoping to do a lot more of these in the near future. Let us know in the comments section if you would like to see more, and in your spare moments, please check out our conversation with one of the nicest guys in the scene, Chris Garofalo.

Spotlight on Quiltface Studios!

Godzilla by Quiltface Studios

Godzilla by Quiltface Studios

Quiltface Studios. The brainchild of Artist, Illustrator, and Graphic Designer Chris Garofalo.

Quiltface’s Tumblr “About Me” section pretty much sums it up: “Highly Elusive, Dangerously Creative. Diabolical Graphic Designer of Horror/Pop Culture posters. Ink on Paper. Disgusting, Revolting, but Genuinely Arousing.

We’re huge fans of Quiltface and the work produced by Chris, and we also love how energetic and genuinely excited he is to promote not only his own work but the work of the scene in general. Whether it be a release from Poster Posse or an up-and-coming illustrator showing their first piece on Twitter, Chris is always one of the first to say “Great job!“.

The prints produced by Quiltface are rough, jagged, seemingly greasy. There’s something dirty about the prints…almost as if the ink is still wet and viscous, wanting to stain your white t-shirt that you just purchased at J. Crew. The Pop-Culture icons on display reflect that air of pollution…serial killers, slashers, werewolves. Icons of horror pulled off with such genius by Quiltface. The Godzilla piece alone should make Quiltface a household name.

We’re very excited to spotlight some work from Quiltface Studios, and we’re gearing up to have a webcast/podcast with Chris and a special co-host in the coming weeks. For now, feast your eyes upon the amazing work that is Chris Garofalo and Quiltface Studios!
