Meet Odes Roberts and you’ll laugh at something he says. He’s just one of those people.
The second annual edition of the Savage Life series, a compilation of posters by Roberts, is showing this weekend at Milk Bar boutique. It’s a faceful of eye-catching design smothered in that Odes Roberts humor (consider the exhibit’s full title — “Savage Life 2: Bitch I’m From the Future”).
“Last year the ‘Savage Life’ series was more or less about hedonism and being a responsible adult while still clinging on to youthfulness,” Roberts said.
In one poster, the Grim Reaper rides a tricycle.
“This year’s poster series is about making a future for yourself and living out your dreams,” he said. “Since most of my dreams are all in a sci-fi theme, I decided to make nine posters loosely based in science fiction lore or nerd culture.”
