The Great and Powerful Poster by purpletinker The Great and Powerful Poster by purpletinker
After being stalled for months, I have finally created this snazzy new poster of the one and only The Great & Powerful Trixie! A preview of this poster can be seen at purpletinker.com/trixieposter-… and is, of course, FAR lower resolution than the actual print-ready version.

It is essentially a parody or pastiche of an old Hoofdini poster, as seen at 1.bp.blogspot.com/_o_5Z3Zpfj0M…

Trixie, of course, takes her inspiration from only the greatest and most powerful magicians!

Everything else: me

I will ultimately be releasing an entire font based off of the work I did on this poster. I had to recreate hoofwritten lettering from the late 1800s essentially from scratch. It was fun, though!

Poster prints are available! If you are interested in one, send me a Note.

I bought this from you at 2 Seasons 2 Days in Nashua NH, and it is now proudly displayed on my wall. Thank you very much for creating this delightful poster. It is quite possibly my least-regretted purchases, ever. I don't have a lot to be proud of, but I'm proud of having this.

Sorry to hear about your troubles, though. I guess whenever there is a community of people, there will always be drama.

Love, Tolerance, Brohoofs

Just got mine today and it looks great. Had to trim off the excess white at the top and bottom to make it fit in the frame. Can't wait to hang it up when I get home from work. :D

Just log into Paypal and click 'Send Money', then tell it to send to prpltnkr (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and send $10 + shipping.
