Over on DC9, Pete's featuring four of Erykah Badu's tour posters, created by EMEK, which are making the rounds courtesy Soulbounce. This one's a personal favorite -- suitable for framing, even at this size. But I'd still like one in extra-effin'-huge. For more of EMEK's work -- and he is "The Thinking Man's Poster Artist" -- check out his astounding site, where posters are indeed for sale; his work for Erykah has its own special place as well. Warning: You'll need about 30 minutes, at least, so schedule accordingly. --Robert Wilonsky
