UnitusSend Unitus a message :   i guarantee they don't care. they didn't put more than 1 minute of thought into it. it's just a) grab cool jpg from internet, b) add concert info, c) post on myspace and gigposters.
"art", "composition", "theft", "appropriation" never entered the picture. and that's fine with me.

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   That's my POINT Maybe that's their train of thought - we can promote our shitty band by getting some controversy over a blatant rip! Or maybe they didn't think at all and just thought no one would notice/care.   2008-07-29 10:33:00
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   BS. This is a "nothing" flyer, for a "nobody" band. Nobody cares...until you post it on the internet.   2008-07-29 10:31:13
Iron Canvas StudiosSend Iron Canvas Studios a message :   or if you 'advance' the design... just kidding, let's not start that whole thing again.   2008-07-29 09:34:30
StevowaffleSend Stevowaffle a message :   Ethics of a designer? This is general ethics... design or not. You don't steal someone else's work and use it for anything other than its original purpose. Unless you have consent...   2008-07-29 09:31:17
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Well, I was jabbing him some with all the "tards" stuff.   2008-07-29 08:28:17
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I wasn't making fun of him, really. I am actually curious as to why people would post these.
Maybe there is no intellectual drive behind it. Maybe they just want to post that their band played such and such show - then end. I don't know if I agree with lonny, necessarily - I do see his points, though.

standardSend standard a message :   making fun of someone for being a bad designer when they are not a designer is almost as stupid as holding someone to the ethics of a designer when they are not a designer.   2008-07-29 08:25:16
StevowaffleSend Stevowaffle a message :   SICK TYPE BRO! This is what happens when you buy those damn "free range" eggs. Seriously though, you've been caught red handed and deserve a gig poster spanking.   2008-07-29 07:54:16
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   but, at the same time...what would pass for a dumb flyer 10-20 years ago, now...posted for the world (and in this case, Image comics) to see could be a whole different thing, depending on how far-reaching certain rights-holders are willing to go to protect their properties.
ie: what was once below the radar in say...1990, would still be today, if it wasn't uploaded to the internet, etc...

UnitusSend Unitus a message :   why not? it's cool that GP has become sort of the ultimate online source-book for rock and roll related art...but at the same time, has shitty flyers too. i'd always side on the inclusive side of things, and not make clay or anyone else have to censor content just because it was unimaginative or lazy. that seems silly.   2008-07-27 21:51:01
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   You're right - it's probably not just for the "pros," but I don't think you have to be a "pro" to know that slapping text onto a comic cover (or whatever this was) isn't really a good thing to submit to this site. I see a lot of flyers doing this, yeah, but I'd question the judgment of any of the originators to put that stuff up on GP. if those flyers like this - that use imagery ripped from someone else and don't have any original artistic merit - are only used to promote shows, then why keep them for posterity's sake on this site? Curious here. Don't have a definite stance, per se.   2008-07-27 21:35:14
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   i don't think this site was ever inteded to be an archive for just "professionally designed and screenprinted" posters. in fact, the majority of posters/flyers you'll see on the streets and in record stores have a lot more in common with this poster than the last Emek, or whoever.   2008-07-27 21:20:19
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Although I guess asking a retard why he does retarded shit isn't going to be that fruitful.   2008-07-27 21:18:01
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   My question as to why they would upload this to a site where it could easily be attacked - even if it's not attacking a fellow artist for "ripping off another" but for blatantly infringing copyright - still stands.   2008-07-27 21:16:48
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   well, i spot a huge difference. whoever "designed" this poster probably doesn't consider themselves an artist, much less a designer.
making a flyer for a show is often just taking some weird image and adding show info, without any thought put into design, context, type, or aftermarket sales.

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I still don't understand why these R-Tards upload the posters to the site after ripping off others so blatantly.   2008-07-27 20:46:46
