Original Post: First and foremost, thanks again for all the buzz! This project was so much fun; I had no idea it would get such a response.
My original intention was to print a very limited run of each poster. However, due to the overwhelming (and amazing) response I have gotten, I have been advised to refrain from putting them up for sale. I’m sorry to disappoint. The last thing I want is to run into any legality issues with Disney.

Sept. 2011 Original Post: I love the Muppets. And with the movie coming out in the next couple of months, there is no better time for a fun little side project involving the best band ever conceived: Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.
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.
Please note, my designs are not licensed by Disney. It is merely a fan creation as a homage for my love of the Muppets.
A huge thank you for all the emails, comments and tweets I’ve been getting in response to my designs; including one from actual Dr. Teeth Muppet performer, Bill Baretta and the gang from Sesame Street!
