When I used to think of a poster, I would instantly imagine a teenager’s room, walls plastered with images of boy bands or the hot actor/actress.

It’s not the most flattering association, and as an adult, I see posters don’t have to mean something cheap, temporary and disposable (like the Leonardo Dicaprio poster of my youth).

Instead, artists and illustrators craft beautiful works that happen to be in poster form.

As you can see, posters don’t just have to be limited to heartthrobs. Illustrations make posters unique and perfect for framing and displaying for years to come.
