ialieneyeSend ialieneye a message :   And I'm back. I'm just wondering what would have been the right amount of posters to have printed? 250 sold on tour and Totimoshi has sold a bunch more of the other 100 they kept(I didn't really need 250 of these myself) but obviously 500 was to many. Whats average? And it's not wall paper in the background it's a fractaling pattern Metatrons cube [url}http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metatron[url] which does make sense if you know anything about Rasputin. And just so you all know I really agree with you that this does not "fit" Mastodons music. I tried to have it be dark but my first thought upon completion was also this is way too bright but I was under the gun. Lastly serious question: if you are hired by the opening band but told to put both bands on the poster as the tour poster for the tour, shouldn't the headliner be the bigger name?   2010-07-25 17:55:18
ialieneyeSend ialieneye a message :   I actually was hired by Totimoshi to do this. It was an extreme rush job and not my favorite piece I've ever done but I personally don't think it's hideous. This is h0w i work and the color fields I work in. A lot of my work is printed digitally and I had to find a printer in Italy to be able to get them to the band in time. I'm new to all this but supposedly both names were supposed to be on it as Mastodon was allowing Totimoshi to sell a posters for the tour to help with costs and they (M) hadn't made one. This is what I was told. period. As for how many were printed what the fuck do I know? the band cleared that and it's the first thing I've ever done for a major tour. BTW I love Mastodon their music is amazing but so is the thought process behind their lyrics and I was trying to give that credit.   2010-07-25 16:15:44

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Communication across all parties is not so great, in the whole music industry. It's full of little feifdoms, nobody knows what anyone else is doing.
I like working with labels because they seem the most able to go over everyone else's heads.

pobiakSend pobiak a message :   I did a poster for Mastodon on this tour, and i did see this. Totimoshi was selling it at their merch table, the Mastodon merch manager mentioned it to me as was upset as they weren't supposed to have had the poster. It looked to be (poorly) inkjet printed and maybe glued to foamboard. Having said that, the Mastodon merch manager was slightly upset with me as well as i arranged the Mastodon poster with the band+Tour manager directly and none of the above bothered to tell the merch manager. Seems like communication across all parties was not so great on this tour!   2010-04-26 05:53:55

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   When I did my Totimoshi tour poster for their tour with Helmet I made a Totimoshi poster not a Helmet poster. I added "on tour with Helmet" on it. I suppose you can do it this way if you want.. just seems like a round about way to make a mastodon poster. Especially if you base it on Mastodon lyrics. I would guess that Totimoshi approved it though so that makes my comments irrelevant in the end.   2010-04-24 16:56:03
mikeageSend mikeage a message :   How is this printed? edition of 500, crapload of colors, front and back. F---
and how do you hang something that is printed on both sides? Cut a hole in the wall so you can see it from the other room. Maybe right above the two sided fireplace?

slaterSend slater a message :   That's basically what I was trying to give the designer credit for... the effort like Dan said.
Where else are you going to see a the story of a "quadriplegic boy who during an astral projection gets pulled through a worm hole into Tsarist Russia by the followers of Rasputin" ?
Seeing images like this is one of the *many* things that make GP great for me.

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   OTOH nobody can accuse this poster of being half-assed. The designer obviously put real thought and effort into it. So, I respect it more than 90,000 bird silhouette posters.   2010-04-24 12:50:17

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Even if Mastodon and Totimoshi had a collaborative concept album about a kid in a wheelchair on a pink brain in front of electric blue wallpaper leaving his body, this poster would still be ugly beyond all hideosity.   2010-04-24 12:35:27
MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   Like, the feel. Not the lyrics or whatever.
Just my pinion.

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I'm not feeling Mastodon by the look of this poster.   2010-04-24 03:01:22
perkinsSend perkins a message :   Well...having a good concept that is easily explained doesn't make necessarily make it well-executed. It's mainly the color choices that I disagree with, seems a little fruity for these guys. When I hear Mastodon, I don't get images of pink & turquoise. I don't know a thing about Totimoshi, so maybe it does fit. They were evidently happy with it.
Then again, that's just my opinion, WTF do I know. Not trying to bust anyone's balls, it's a nice design. I guess the argument could be made over any poster on the site as to whether or not it fits the band and how well. Every image is an individual's personal interpretation of the music, which I guess is part of what makes checking out everyone's work so fascinating. Gotta give credit to the artist for at least knowing the music. Aahh fuck it. I'll shut up now & just say nice work.

slaterSend slater a message :   Good read posted by Gregg there... I like the *image* even more now with the story.
But yeah, it doesn't have the traditional Mastodon vibe at all.

ZOMICSend ZOMIC a message :   I rem Totimoshi putting up a thread about a tour poster...think I saw where ialieneye got it......but yea the imagery heavily leans toward Mastdon's lyrics.....free pass indeed....ching chang!   2010-04-23 06:23:34
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I'd guess this was actually sanctioned though Totimoshi. Which would make it kind of dodgy (to me) to use a mastodon heavy theme. Like, it's a free ride on mastodon's name. Of course I am speculating as it may in fact have been for Mastodon.And 500 is a fucking massive addition for a tour poster run of prints for sale.   2010-04-23 02:43:01
