holy shit! if frost tour i HAVE to do a poster.
somewghere at my mom's place are pics of me as a 14 year old hesher with feathered black hair, skintight black jeans with zipper at the ankles and a series of celtic frost and iron maiden shirts.
often with a skiddy mulleted boyfriend.
then i got intojoy division and my world changed.
i'm talking more the real classic rock/metal ironic listening - sabbath, ac/dc, thin lizzy, motorhead, led zeppelin, rolling stones, slayer, etc...that music means so much to me that i hate it when people take it ironically...in fact, it blows my mind that anyone would.
i'm less about 80's metal, but there are a ton of bands from that era that deserve more than to have an indie kid wear a shirt of them as a joke. in my opinion. i think chloe is more about the 80's metal than me, so she'll probably let you have it.
Speaking as someone who actually saw the 'metal' scene in Hollywood at it's high (or low, depending who you ask) in Hollywood in the 80s whit my own eyes, I would like to affirm that there is a great deal of irony there.
honestly, "the rocker" is pretty much my favourite song nowadays. phil lynott was incredible. there's definately some thin lizzy albums i stay away from, but the good ones are INCREDIBLY good!!
and yeah, some people do like to get their nuts crushed.
dont just bite em for free chloe.. people pay for that shit nowadays..
my buddy mentioned that some guys are into having their nuts kicked by women too... that is like a double bonus for women out there!
i meen people who think metal and classic rock are ironic need to be bit in the face.
all the time i get these hipster indie rock kids comming up to me all like "ohhh i rteally like your band. you guys are so crazy. what do u listen too?"
and i'm all like " slayer, queen, ccr, beefheart, sabbath, zepplin, dillenger, celtic frost"
and they are all "ha ha that's funny. what do u REALLY listen too?"
hehe...yeah, but she's right. everytime i play an ac/dc song or tell people that they are my favourite band, i get these smirks and laughs...the indie kids just don't respect the rock n' roll like they should.
thanks for all the great comments guys!
death from above are friends of ours and one of the best freakin' bands in canada right now
u can hear an mp3 here : http://www.acherecords.com/ (in the mp3s section)
the bolt was actually added after the whole thing was done, in order to re-direct the viewers eyes abit, create an oppositional diagonal to the black and white form's. It happens sometimes that we think our stuff twice. And it does make sense.
also, it somewhat needed a pun, just to distract from the emo quality of the b&w drawing, wich was turning me off a bit.
Bit too messy and muddy for my taste, but it is unique looking. it kind of reminds me of drawings done by autistic children, as in it looks naive at first glance, but masks a deeper form of substance and order. Hmm, does that even make sense? maybe i'm autistic.
dan- this was mostly done with brushes and speedball pens
we like to slop the ink!
dave- yannick and i both do tasks on each poster we do
for instance on this i did the original illo of the spiral cloud in pen and ink and then yannick added more spirals, thicker lines in and filled alot of the white spaces and added the lightning bolts
pretty much everything we do we pass it back and forth untill we get something that is sufficently nuts.
