of course i got the o.k... i was set up at the merch tables. there was a lot of competition for $ too 'cause godspeed brought the whole frickin' catalogue plus a publisher from mtl. they were really nice people... and black dice and lullabye arkestra rocked!! apparently it was the first time they let someone do a poster, so you might have a better chance now that i've popped their cherry.
thanks for the encouraging comments y'all! The finished poster turned out beatifully (thanks to some AMAZING printers) and I sold out the edition of 150 at the shows.
Great first gigposter experience!
