WWF Legends – The Minimalist Posters.

I’m a huge sucker for all kinds of minimalist pop culture themed posters. There’s something uniquely clinical and succinct about them, which is why I nearly had an aneurysm when I discovered these.

They’re created by BAMItsBernie who has his very own Etsy shop, where you can purchase these prints of  the World Wrestling Federation legends which not only pay tribute to some of the most famous characters in sports entertainment from back in the day, but also reference each wrestler’s signature move. Bernie states:

Most avid fans of 80′s and 90′s wrestling would attribute its success not only to the wrestlers’ ability to entertain the crowd, but the spirit of the unique, well-branded characters compared to culture’s current indistinguishable counterparts. The WWF Legends Minimalist Poster Series became a challenge to tap into this theory to its rawest form and create designs that evoke the trademark personalities of the golden era of wrestling entertainment.
Each poster features the simplest of visual elements that are iconic to the respective wrestler, as well as their signature finishing move. Aged element for vintage/retro feel to fit with the appropriate time reference, and finished off with my BAM moniker insignia.

RIP Randy Savage.

Ex-pro wrestler Randy Savage aka Macho Man has died following a car crash yesterday in Florida.

The 58 year-old who was travelling in his Wrangler Jeep with his wife Barbara apparently lost control of his vehicle, crossed a motorway reservation into oncoming traffic before crashing into a tree. It’s thought Savage may have suffered a heart-attack while at the wheel, his wife survived the crash with minor injuries.

So there you go, the passing, for us at least, of a legend. We can recall watching this mad man in action, (with the likes of Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ric Flair and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts), bringing us entertainment every weekend and introducing the world to the underrated stylings of the hat/beard/sunglasses combo.

Rest in peace you gruff maniac.
