Peveto, I talked to Snozik last nite and he said youre coming out there like in a week or two?
Flying or driving? If driving, could you play courier for me and bring something back? If flying, could you do the same?
Jermaine you are dead on. Since I manage Moonlight Towers I did this as an experiment in underprinting knowing I didn't have a promoter to please. (However Philip at The Mercury is a huge supporter of art being part of promotion.) This version was for the band members. We did an alternate version to promote the show that, while utlitarian, was not as interesting. It was a very small run too and these bands don't carry an aftermarket value so I wasn't expecting to sell any. I gave away almost the entire run at the show. What did come of this is the other two bands who had not seen our work flipped out and will be coming to us for future jobs.
OK...to me, this is an example of a poster that was created for the after-market FIRST and for a promotional vein SECOND. There would be MANY promoters who would be horrified to recieve this as a poster they paid to have made to PROMOTE a show.
This strikes me as a piece made for collectors, which just happens to be a promo item. And THAT, to me, is the key to freedom...because the average promoter does NOT care what a poster looks like (i.e.) art...as long as it promotes.
The collector, on the other hand, holds you to a much higher standard.
It's looks almost totally black in person. Supposed to look like little floating orbs until you get up close. When the light hits it all the info and the image pops. I had to lightenthe jpeg because you really have to work to see it. We made plain B&W flyers as well. This is two colour yellow under black. They are 20 x 20 on 100lb cover.
