Polaris posters!

Canada just got a little prettier. The annual Polaris Music Prize (which I've mentioned a few times) just released the short list posters. Not only does this super-cool organization celebrate independent Canadian music it also brings a lot of attention to the visual artists who work with these musicians. Instead of awarding the short list nominees with an award or trophy, the Polaris Prize finds an artist in the band's hometown and commissions the design of a limited-edition poster. The poster must include the name of the band or artist, the year, and the words Polaris Music Prize. After that, the design of the poster is up to the individual artist.

Patrick Watson's poster. (You can see the rest of them on the Polaris Music Prize site)
