thanks for the wax info. i thought it was an adhesive thing, but then people get so sentimantal about them, i thought maybe they did tricks, too. rotator, if you're serious, you're welcome to do a nein poster. no open shows coming up for a while, though. (i'm doing one for our show with pipe, and our upcoming shows with the wrens might be taken care of by the wrens or their management). thanks for offering!
Casey - I used to use a wax machine for pasteup at the Daily Aztec (SDSU Student run newspaper...it looked like a paper shredder, and distributed wax evenly on bottom of copy or illo's. that's about all it did. I suppose you could use the wax to smear a Xerox® though...OK, so nowwww can I do a Nein poster?
It's the constant arguing and bitching around here that gets me down sometimes. I'm no stranger to internet beef, and there are times I welcome it, because it's so got-damn silly. There are just times when I've had my fill, even when I'm not involved.
hey art, if you're still there, could you explain the waxing machine to me? is it just a paste-up thingy, or could you use it to manipulate design elements? was the type just smeared around on the xerox, or did the was play a role in this distortion? i'm in the dark on the wax.
I'll be honest, I like the poster, and I gor Perkins joke. I didn't get why Art was getting upset about and thought he was joking too. What the hell happened? Seems like he was too touchy about whatever happened.
It was metaphorical, dork. Like "The Godfather of Poster Art", only more like the "Deadbeat Dad". Helps to bring it into this world, but doesn't do much to nurture it along, & only shows up to criticize its upbringing.
Makes sense to me.
In your own words: "Get it?" Learn to take a joke.
one thing i'd like to point out are the cutlines between the letters. they showed up on my photocopy and i left them in to see what would happen. they look like some 'design element' of the typeface design. pretty funny.
frank, i'd never consider you stupid and simple. i just got back from chicago (where i met some snotty little gigposter geeks i had to beat to within and inch of their lives. sorry, jay. you know you made me do it.)
the type was all done in about 15 minutes with a dover book, a scissors, some wax and a copier. you'd expect more from me?
the whole point of these old moe posters from this period of time (1994) was keeping them fresh looking by doing them as fast as possible. i'd knock out maybe three or four designs in an afternoon. it's really fun to force yourself to work like that once in a while.
it's not rhondo or bono (why do these guys always have names like that?) it's some fifties pro wrassler whose name i've forgotten at this point.
It's OK. Art just called me. He did rent ENIAC in the 50's to do this type treatment. 67321 individual punch cards he did by hand and then fed into the computer.
See! He still did it the hard way so it's OK!
