Mid-November a year ago, came online. This unique poster art collection grows two new posters per month. As of today, there are a total of 45 posters displayed on the site. Contributing artists come from all corners of the world. Please have a look! See what subtletalk has to say. We have been busy making a few changes to the site and of course there are more changes to come. For example, you can now buy a single poster (jpeg image) for all of 88 cents.

The number of unique visitors to the site steadily rises. In 2013, a comprehensive marketing strategy will be implemented; a stable client base is hoped for. One of our goals is to keep subtletalk free of any advertising. By taking out a two-year subscription to subtletalk posters for 12 Canadian dollars, one gains access to all poster files and ultimately helps support the growth and development of this website. And contributing artists benefit whenever an archival fine art giclée print of one of their posters is ordered. The quality of these giclée prints is simply superb.

Please explore all that the site offers. Thank you very much for your interest and support.

Hello Duncan,
This is such an amazing concept that you've developed. It's so creative and very inspiring!
It's a site that you can just keep going back to and seeing new things or new interpretations - always exciting!

We jumped past a few hurdles in these first nine months of subtletalk online. Finding a rhythm. Taking chances. Making changes.

Not long ago, I gave a well-known Vietnamese painter a simple text and carte blanche to paint "A Banjo at the Waterfall". For me it was a title that deserved a painterly story. He took it all the way there! Normally with these posters I present the artist with a text and certain elements that I want present in the finished artwork. This time it was different. I look forward to using the "title" approach again. It can produce another kind of fruit.

We are averaging two new posters per month. I am interested in attracting artists who are sympathetic to what subtletalk is doing. I am especially eager to see some drawers and typographers participate. Please let them know if you happen to know any.

I think I will be adding fluidity to the comments section of this site soon by positioning some poetry there. Under Profile, you will find a link to a book of poems I published in 2006. There is also a review there. Comments are not as frequent as I would like on this site so adding a few poems now and again will make up for it. Poems have dynamic structures; perhaps they can be seen as comments under construction. Of course, I heartily welcome comments from visitors to this site.

Hello Duncan.

You said I would enjoy this new site and find it fascinating - right on both counts.
