While music can be a city’s soundtrack, the posters and ephemera that emerge from a scene give it the texture. For Pueblo’s Lastleaf Custom Print & Design, started by Mathias “Mo” Valdez, that texture might be best described as Soviet-Southwest, or Agit-Folk. Not all-that-surprisingly, half of LastLeaf’s crack design team includes The Haunted Windchimes’ Inaiah Lujan who narrated this slide show of some of their amazing poster work when we followed them around last summer in Pueblo.

    I am glad you posted this – keep showing the real talent in southern Colorado- this is some amazing stuff. I had never seen this work. Too bad they didnt design the logo for Colorado Springs. The city would not have had to flush 100K down the toilet for that #*+& Clip Art disaster they threw away!
