this is nice. but the RHH is a better piece, for my tastes. just a better design. but, i bet this type WAS done by hand. wierd how similar, though, huh? not that i'm suggesting either ripped off the other.
yeah - i guess i kinda blew my cover there - but i always create everything with a zerox, fax, sandpaper, xacto, etc and use the mac for composing mainly. it's much easier...and more flexable. when AI alowed you to color placed bitmaps, i was off and running....hi-rez-bitmaps is where it's at...
I can dig that. I'm just getting started in design, and I'm stuck between embracing the new methods while maintaining an interest in the old. I finally got my copy of that Blue Note album cover art book, and I'm just stunned by the results of what your bare hands and some "archaic" machinery can do. The RHH poster was dope, vibranium. If ya hadn't mentioned that, I would have sworn you had used "traditional" methods.
I prefer the Horton Heat one for this reason: the type looks more hand done, and htat's just a personal preference, and the type here is a House Ind. font just manipulated to fit the space. Granted, it's done well, but I just prefer hand done type.
I do agree though that this is a better usage of the devil girl imagery than most though.
