Sold Out: Amazing True Grit Poster by Aaron Horkey / Burlesque

Fresh off the presses. Ben LaFond at Burlesque just posted this pic as he finished the run of True Grit posters by Aaron Horkey. Too bad the poster’s already sold out.

I’ve seen Aaron‘s amazing typography showcased in Hi-Fructose and am always enthralled. But at 15″x 39″ this print is a particularly impressive beast. Especially when you know the following fact:

Aaron does not use a computer.

Here’s an early “rough” sketch to prove it.
