Catherine Opie, known for her tough portraits that often celebrate queer culture, has designed the posters for the fifth season of the IFC television series Portlandia. They feature the show’s stars, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, at right, as depicted by Opie.

This isn’t the first time a popular artist has been tapped to sell Portlandia to the viewing public. Last year, the show used Alex Prager for its promotional campaign.

The fifth season premieres January 8, 2015.
