Best Poster Designer - 2011
Sleepy Kitty Arts
If Paige Brubeck and Evan Sult had never picked up their instruments and began making noise-collage rock & roll, which they do in Sleepy Kitty, their contributions to the St. Louis music scene would still be hard to miss. Under the aegis of Sleepy Kitty Arts, Brubeck and Sult create vibrant, brightly colored posters that make the average rock show seem like a trip to the carnival. Bright reds, glowing greens and cerulean blues make up most of Sleepy Kitty's palette, alongside stock images of everything from '60s hairdos to anthropomorphic animals. With equal parts art-school whimsy and Crayola playfulness, Sleepy Kitty helps turn mere rock shows into full-on events.
