hmmm- thanks again art.
i knew i wasnt inventing anything new here. who ever really thinks they are? i hadnt seen the other posters or the warhol piece until now.
i quite like all the others ive been shown that have this idea on them - most are better in my opinion. the factor 27 poster is particularly fucking cool since the venue is called STUBB'S. good stuff.
thanks for the comments. this has been posted since march and never had a comment - i always figured it was TOO obvious of an idea.
this was based on a TOM WAITS ticket from 77.
It's funny. When I was looking for source material for the poster that I submitted last night, I came across an old pin-up series where the model used a large ticket to hide her unmentionables... very similar to what I actually ended up going with but I decided against the ticket idea because this had just gone up.
warhol did a poster back in about 65 or 66 that was a ticket stub concept. but, the idea was around in design and art direction circles for generations before that. so, you actually didn't invent anything here.
but warhol's poster was really "warhol'd up" and looked more like an 'andy' than a ticket stub. so, i don't think of what you did as any sort of rip of anything. hell, i even did a ticket poster or two in my time. it's sort of like doing a playing card idea - everybody does one sooner or later. but it's HOW you do it that makes the difference, and you've done a really excellent take on the old idea. so, you've got nothing to backtrack on at all.
never said it was original. just said it was well done.
a good twisted comment.
if you showed up at trhe door with this poster under your arm, did they let you in?
did they tear the poster in half and give you the stub?
did you fold it up before you put it in your pocket?
