Historically Hardcore by Jenny Burrows and Matt Kappler

Wow. I am amazed by the amount of attention these posters have been getting lately! I just want to say first, Thank You for blogging, tweeting, loving these. Also, I have to give mad credit to the copywriter on this project, Matt Kappler. They wouldn’t be half as badass without his words. Lastly, these were NOT done by a famous museum in Washington, DC. They were an ad project that Matt and I did during school for our portfolios. But obviously we’re thrilled that they are good enough that people think they’re real! So thanks again! Update: So, in the time since these were first blogged by someone last week, I have been told by the museum they were intended for that I would have to remove the originals with that museum’s logo. Sadly, I think this makes these posters a bit less bad-ass, but what else can I do? I don’t want to delete them from my book entirely because they are a great campaign.  You can learn more about what happened hereI wanna say thanks to everyone for the support, comments, compliments, and feedback. It’s been a crazy adventure and I hope people still enjoy these as a campaign for a generic museum for now. Unless there are any awesome museums who are interested in using these as a real campaign! Contact me! For those of you asking about getting prints of the posters made: I decided it would probably be too risky to sell them considering all of the images used are probably copyrighted. I know I never took any photos of 50 Cent. So feel free to download the high-res pdfs from here and print them out as big as you want! And send me pictures! If they’re in a classroom, a dorm room, or even a random wall on the side of a building, I want to see them!
