Illustrator Elliott Quince has won the Edinburgh Festival Comedy Poster Awards with a series of 21 designs promoting Michael Stranney and Olaf Falafel’s standup show, Expect the Unexporcupine…
Expect the Unexporcupine runs until August 31 and is described as “an hour of fun filled silly comedy” with a mixture of “off-beat characters, one-liners, outlandish tales and an irrelevant spinning wheel.”
Quince was asked to create posters and flyers to promote the show, and came up with a different design for each day of its run. Posters depict the comics as fictional characters and famous figures from art, history and popular culture. The pair appear as severed heads, Roman busts, hot dogs, Wayne’s World’s Garth and Wayne, Batman and Robin, Vikings and leprechauns, as well as the woman and farmer from Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and Breaking Bad’s Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
