Nice thread! This could actually go on for a long time!

How about these two? Victor Moscoso from the '60's and a recent Emek ...

Everyone's favorite fun game is no longer TAKE A STEP BACK, it's FIND THE INSPIRADO!

I guess that is more of a sticker than a poster, but there's posters of both too.

.... to his credit, he did! I look at this more as homage than anything else.

Maxfield Parrish inspirado for the butterfly babe?

And is that first ad by Emek older than the The Mars Volta poster? I wonder how the The Mars Volta fans would feel about their poster being a reused advertisement? Or was the The Mars Volta poster first? If so, I wonder how the The Mars Volta fans would feel about their band's poster being used as an advertisement?
:roll:

(duh, this IS eb, where the links actually have info behind them!! The The Mars Volta is from 05, the Warped one is '06. I bet lots of Ralston Purina employees will like the Warped one. Blech- corporate logos suck as bad as corporate-named venues! :x )

Ok, I get it, both have a figure in a crescent moon with a ukelele. . . I don't see much resemblence besides that.

It's a piece of clip art from a Dover book, I believe. If you look around, and know the clip art books fairly well, you can see where a lot of poster imagry comes from.
