Remember the good old days when it was not considered corporal punishment to have a student write out “I will not be late to class” five hundred times? Although it may look like this is what’s going on in these hand-written posters by Mike Matola, I assure you it’s voluntary. To create images of musical and movie icons, Matola writes out lyrics and film scripts leaving blank spaces to reveal the musicians or actors. For the posters of Paul, John, Ringo, & George, Matola wrote the complete lyrics of seven Beatles’ albums across the four portraits. For his poster of Jack Nichlolson in The Shining, he appropriately repeated the famous line, “All Work And No Play Makes Jack A Dull Boy.” While it may seem like tedious work, the LineByLine posters look awesome and are available for purchase on Etsy. See Matola’s latest poster in the making: Pulp Fiction after the jump!
