Hey, try GIMP - it's pretty much like Photoshop and free. It's been around forever and is pretty stable. Not quite as slick but certainly a usable program.

Here's a freeware vector graphics program, much like Illustrator: http://www.inkscape.org

I've found that good poster art is about good layout. I'd find something you like and open up the file in photoshop or other program and use it as a template for your own artwork etc. then remove the layer with the original poster ... if that makes sense.
