cool then (not that it's any of my business, really).
i haven't really walked around seattle much in the last year. i was really impressed at the quality of the telephone pole posters that i saw when i was walking around georgetown yesterday. over the last couple of years, there have been one or two guys making really great telephone pole stuff in seattle, but not more than that. right now there's TONS of cool poster artsists all over. an explosion. love it.
carlos, i'll try to look for one of yours to steal. i like them better when they have creosote stains and staple holes and rain wrinkles. it's the only way to know they were authentic posters (aka "danced").
Also now that I have a minute- the stuff I showed ya art was all master copies. I will get a commission from around town, go design it and make a handful of copies and give em to the band. They will make more copies and put them up around town themselves since I've been a little too busy to go out w a staplegun myself these days. I also sometimes have extras that I will drop off at record stores and venues if I happen to be nearby.
i gotta ask you...
do these little scrappy )but beautiful) posters actually get used? i mean, you showed me your amazing sketch book and in it i saw the originals for a few of these things. they are great, really wonderful. but, do they actually get used on telephone poles as advertising or as swag or anything? i guess what i'm asking is - do these beautiful little things only exist in your sketchbook?
