Polaris Music Prize 2015: Drake

October 5, 2015Art Prints, Band Posters, Poster Prints, Posters

Drake‘s been nominated for the Polaris Prize year in and year out (well, aside from his debut record in 2010, Thank Me Later, but I digress). So we here at Kid Icarus have slowly amassed a collection of Drake Polaris posters. It’s become a tradition, almost. Another year, another Drake poster. Here’s Matthew Daley‘s take on the self-proclaimed “6 God’s” 2015 Polaris short listed album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. It’s a real hoot (groan).


 2015 Polaris Prize short list nominee Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, 4 colour screen print on cover white, $40.

Enjoying these 2015 Polaris posters? We know you are. And we know that we enjoyed printing them. Kid Icarus’ own Stephanie Cheng designed this awfully clever poster for modern-day-Randy-Newman Tobias Jesso Jr‘s short listed debut album, Goon.


   2015 Polaris Prize short list nominee Tobias Jesso Jr.’s Goon, 3 colour screen print on cover white, $40.

GOON_2Game, set, match…cry? This neat poster is as heartbreaking as the record itself.
