I knew as soon as I saw this week's featured poster for tomorrow's Jonathan Tyler and Northern Lights show on the We Are Villains MySpace page that it would be the winner. I'm a sucker for circus-themed art to begin with, and this flyer is especially well done. The simulated torn top edge, complete with remnants of older pasted-over handbills, is a nice touch. Still waiting to hear back about who the artist is, but I'll update this post as soon as I do.

And in a somewhat related note, I'll never look at elephants the same way after the chapter in Michael Chabon's great new book, Gentlemen of the Road, wherein a war-trained pachyderm brutally kills a man. The rampaging beast in this poster isn't helping. Jenny, far as I'm concerned, you're on your own.--Jesse Hughey

Update: The artist is Ty Clark, who manages We Are Villains in addition to being a fashion designer and founder of Veritas .

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
