The Dashboard View - Michael Laurence, 1998

Artist: Michael Laurence
Type: Tour Poster
Print: Lithograph
Size: 11 x 17
Event Date:
Venue: Multiple
Unsigned, unnumbered

This looks like a student photography project. It’s not ugly, but it is kind of dark and doesn’t make a lot of sense as a Radiohead poster.

But it says “Radiohead” on it, doesn’t it? Yep, so here it is.

The Engine – Unknown Artist, Hollywood, 2001

Artist: Unknown
Type: Gig Poster
Print: Lithograph
Size: 11 x 17
Event Date: 8.20.2001
Venue: The Hollywood Bowl – Hollywood, CA
Unsigned, unnumbered

Sadly little information is available for this poster which certainly had an artist of some kind design it. It doesn’t appear to be a promoter poster as those usually involve album artwork.

What I do know is that there are at least two versions: the true 11 x 17 version is on thin matte paper and the slightly larger version (closer to 12 x 18) is on thin glossy paper. The size difference between them is only a centimeter or two. These pop up on eBay now and again and rarely for very much. Have at it.
