And Murph, you're gonna rock the karaoke!!!
Even if was drunk,someone slipped 3 hits of xtacy in my drink and held a gun to my head, I'd still NOT karaoke......ever....
P.s. Blame evrything on me, EMEK is too valuable to be thrown in the 'slammer'!!!
"Yes, officer, it was me..."
I'm gonna attack Brian on Saturday.
Sum 41...hmmm...maybe you shoulda done something with a big math equation and some geometry problems, see, cause sum and 41 are both things that have to do with math. Pythagorean Theory and shot. You could have made the poster in an isosceles triangle shape. That would have been rad!
I don't think anyone was attacking Brian, Dave. I think some people just didn't like/get the poster. That's what this sites' about. don't put your stuff up if you're expecting everyone to love it. Shit I've had my stuff on here called "CUTE"...talk about insulting.

Yep, it is a PARODY!!! People selectively frown upon or applaud posters with cultural icons on this site ....every chance they can get. It's retarded. Would it have been better with characters from Sesame Street or a filtered photo of Marilyn Monroe? Maybe I should have reworked some corporate logo or used of photo of GW Bush.
I approached the poster as a "job." Listened to the band's lyrics and discussed it with the club. If I'm going to sell out from time to time, I should at least make an effort.
The band dug it and I had fun doing it.
Next time I'll just draw a skull.
i disagree-i think it IS a parody. everytime you've ssen eddie, he's doing something 'cool'. storming the battlefield, holding a bloddy axe, being a mummy...
PUKING is not seen the same way. like, bruce dickinson would not think this portrayed eddie in a good light. sum 41 are snotty little guys, this is a snotty little poster. i tried to make sense with this post, but doubt i did.
There are 2 things I don't really like about this poster:
1. I think it's conceptually poor. It's conveying the idea of "metal" by using a character from a metal band. It's not a parody, it's not put into any new or interesting context, it's just Eddie on another band's poster.
2. I realize that Eddie is a bit of a cultural landmark in his own way, but it seems odd to use the creation of another rock/poster artist who is still producing work and trying to make a living. I would've figured someone here would frown upon this and I'm surprised it ended up being me.
It's well-done and drawing Eddie is fun, but I still don't get it.
i saw an episode of MTV Cribs w/ Sum41's bassist - he still lives with his parents (he's like 18 and canadian). anyway, at one point in the episode, he showed the camera his 'most prized possession', which was indeed the Eddie's Head box set.
you nailed it, cap'n. =D
"You bastard. I was going to inform you that you werre giving me a ride Murph."
If anything changes Richie, we are there. But right now we have three(count em' THREE) cars that aint' in driving shape. We are lucky they make it a mile to the store. But we'll see...
I was trying to talk Richie into picking up Murphy and coming down for your party on saturday. One can hope.
Regarding the poster,
Sum41 are total metalheads. Brian was trying to figure out what to do so I mentioned he might do something really metal looking. I think he nailed it.
Oh yeah, the reason I know ANYTHING about Sum41 is that I have 11 and 13 year old boys..who know everything about all these bands.
I didn't know what to do for a band I had no interest in...like the Dashboard poster. The idea came from a conversation with Fisher, to do something 'metal'. The club asked me to do this one and I obliged cuz they' treat me well. Plus, I fulfilled a childhood dream of drawing Eddie.
After meeting the band... I have respect for them. They were very courteous and down to earth. Unlike some bands that watched too much behind the music. Muthafuckin' job done muthafuckah.
Ya know he does look like he's eating a shrub. Gotta work on drawing vomit. Damn you Goad.
