The Triumphant Return of Ben Marks

By Lisa

April 1st, 2011

Last month, our Senior Editor Ben Marks took a brief leave of absence to get some tinkering on his spine. He returned triumphant, and better than ever—and with a badass new scar. Since Ben is an avid collector of rock posters (read his “Confessions of a Failed Poster Flipper,” as well as his interviews with Marq Spusta and Gary Houston), we commissioned the brilliant Casey Castille to create a psychedelic poster in his honor.

Casey is a graphic designer and poster artist who finds inspiration in the works of N.C. Wyeth, Alphonse Mucha, Ed Ruscha, Anton Corbijn, Norman Rockwell, and Hokusai. Based in Oakland, CA, she’s also a musician, burlesque performer, photographer, and painter. Check out her work!

Ben, we’re so glad to have you back in action!

Many people think North America was a wilderness when Columbus arrived, but it wasn’t—it was a vast garden being maintained by Native Americans.
