art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this is taken from the cover of a children's song book from 1960 called "music for young americans". it's a sort of a twisted classic. using it here is commentary, and editorial remark about the music of denali. it's actually rather witty, ya know?
since the mid-last century, the ideas behind art have not always been quite a primitive as many on gp seem to desire. nothing is ever as it appears any more.

fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   A lot of those Flickr comparisons are bullshit. Like the Cigarette ladies - no one who did those thought they were "getting away" with anything. They needed the cultural connection to the original to make it work! And a lot of them are a serious stretch to consider a "rip".   2008-09-23 16:19:17

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   wow, kinda crazy, this was 6 years ago now.
it appears as though i never said "i made this".
I think we/I've been very open in say that we used to do this kind of thing once in a while. Never tried to hide it, but certainly never hi-jacked on a regular basis. As Zach said, we draw everything now or use from legit sources when needed, especially for our illustration work.
I believe this was from a 1950's childrens book of verse.
That flickr link is funny. That infinite record that those folks did i dont think is a rip off on ours per - say.
Also that hand shake one the hand is from the much used Craphound series.

this is mildly amusing. I reserve my pure rage for things like rush hour driving, having my bike stolen or my computer's harddrive seizing

El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   While it was cool to look at, it made me glad I draw stuff (and that's not a diss to anyone that doesn't).   2008-09-22 20:17:55

victor_howitzerSend victor_howitzer a message :   I wouldn't see this band. It looks like an advertisement to a Piano recital or something. No offense to Dusty. It's just not my thing. Then again I don't know who these bands are and I'm assuming they're not the kind of bands I like anyway. Carry on GP, Carry on....   2008-09-22 19:32:57
Mikey JacketSend Mikey Jacket a message :   oh man, I don't want to be responsible for the 500 comments that will develop on this poster. I just always liked this poster and was surprised to see that something so simple would be lifted from something else.   2008-09-22 19:14:49
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I think there are some mutherfuckers up in here that owe Paul Gardner an apology. Pronto.   2008-09-22 19:14:09
Michael ApparatusSend Michael Apparatus a message :   "I do so much more than I show here it's not even funny." I'm sure you do. (I really do - sans sarcasm).
But, as you know I AM AMERICA.
I'm not sure what the term "boutique guys" means but I'm always flattered when anyone finds me attractive.

Michael ApparatusSend Michael Apparatus a message :   Creator of context? What does that mean? I haven't seen anything from you that would even justify making such a funny, made up term.
You are funny though.

El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   There's a photo set on flickr that has side-by-side comparisons of some gigposters and the original images they are based on. It's quite interesting.   2008-09-22 16:28:20
ImJustRickGSend ImJustRickG a message :   I *love* when I find the original sources! Not to start a whole thing here (as per Paul Gardner) but finding 50-year-old art and giving it a new context is awesome. This poster rules. Knowing that Dusty found some obscure, forgotten piece of art and gave it a new lease on life makes me like it MORE.   2008-09-22 15:06:21
