Michael De Pippo’s Vintage Muppets Posters

Dr Teeth

It’s no secret that we here at TC are quite fond of our fuzzy friends, The Muppets. For those not in the know, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are a Muppet rock band. Yes… A muppet rock band. And what self-respecting band would tour without some epic posters to back them up? In steps Michael De Pippo, a Toronto-based graphic designer who set himself a challenge…

“My idea was simple; create a vintage concert poster for each band member (Dr. Teeth, Janice, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Zoot and Animal). Using clean, crisp vectors, negative space and few colours, I wanted to keep them as simple and stylized as possible; reminiscent of retro posters from back in the day.”

The only disappointing thing is that they’re purely a fun side project, and will never be available as actual prints… unless someone high and mighty from the Jim Henson Company is reading. And if you are… get it sorted! In the meantime make sure to explore the rest of Michael’s work over on his site, and follow him over on Twitter.
