Captain America Retro Poster by AiDub Captain America Retro Poster by AiDub
In honor of the movie coming out next month, and inspired by jpbbantique's retro Captain America poster, I decided to do something myself. Again, I love the retro and vintage style and definitely wanted to do something along those lines with this one. I think it's cool to take the modern take on superheros today and take them back in time, design wise, to see how they would look with alittle wear and tear.

I loved how this piece turned and hope everyone else does too.

Done in Illustrator CS4 and just a little Photoshop CS4 for the texture overlay.

Comments appreciated! :D

Thanks! I wanted to do nothing but halftones for this one and I just loved the look I was getting out of them, especially in the background elements!

Thanks! Yup! You nailed it. Love that font as well. It's liked controlled chaos. Just looks good on vintage and retro posters.

Yeah you gotta love the old hand-stamped goodness of it while it still keeps an almost clean and orderly look. :)
