The Giant Businessman - Speed, Hollywood, 2001

Artist: Speed (Scott Hall)
Type: Gig Poster
Print: Lithograph
Size: 11 x 17
Event Date: 8.20.2001
Venue: The Hollywood Bowl – Hollywood, CA
Signed, numbered in an edition of 300

This poster would have been right at home in an episode of Mad Men with the 50’s-style businessman frolicking through the cityscape. Sadly the artist, Scott Hall, aka Speed, passed away in his sleep in 2004 at 34 years old. Here is an article (Don’t read the comments. Just don’t.).

There are actually three editions of this poster available. I have the first and second, both signed by Speed. You can see that the second edition is slightly bigger than the first, closer to 12" x 18". I’m not sure when the third came out or if it is signed. But I do love that instead of signing “Speed,” Scott signed, “Speed!”
