Brendan JordanSend Brendan Jordan a message :   Oh, by the way, I'm clearly not breathing any life in to the NYC poster scene, as I've barely cracked it.
Unfortunately I've been relegated to the suburban desert wasteland that is Long Island - not by any official decree, but by my mere laziness. I suck.

Casey BurnsSend Casey Burns a message :   there's also the fact that this website is a poster archive. this is a poster. anyway, i'm really tired. ahh, the world of posters. have fun with it. get the word out. get people to see those underexposed bands.   2004-07-20 20:09:18
Brendan JordanSend Brendan Jordan a message :   "Hell yeah I ripped it off. Right out of the AIGA book it was published in. Call it weak if you want, but finding the time to design a gig poster from scratch between being a full-time graphic designer and gigging in two bands is tough. "
Then why post it up here? No one's impressed with a rip-off. If one of your jobs is a graphic designer, you should be able to come up with something a little more original.
"I'll agree that the NYC poster scene is weak cause I am the only one bringing life into the poster art of the local rock scene. "
What life? I've seen some other NYers stuff on here that absolutely blows you away, but I've also seen too many people do shitty half-thought through posters done for shows that deserve better.

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I'm just saying that you can't have it both ways. If you borrow expect to get borrowed from. It is all varying degrees of justification. Like, it is a little wrong to steal others designs and illos because you heavily change them and take from obscure sources. It is MORE wrong if you still from your peers and change it very little. At least that is how it seems to shake out.
In my mind a little wrong and lot wrong are both still wrong. You can't have your cake and eat it to.
Now that said. I can live with it if the person stealing/ borrowing doesn't bitch when it happens to them. Thats all. And to clarify, I think it is wrong to take another persons designs and layouts same as i feel it is wrong to take somebodys illos and photos.
Unless you are cool with getting jacked yourself.

kolfacekillaSend kolfacekilla a message :   mike, i hear where you're coming from but i also think (and if i'm wrong lemme know) that you're coming at it from an illustrators point of view. some designers probably feel the same protective ownership way about their designs that an illustrator feels about their work. right or wrong, that's how i think they see it. so when someone lifts heavily from their design and just drops it on something else, regardless of the imagery it uses, they consider it theft of design, idea theft. such as this poster. changing names, thats it. looks identical to the original poster.
that's where i think they're coming from, i know you think its a grey area, and it may be, but stealing design is akin to stealing illustrations in certain circles. secret circles. freemasons even.
just my thoughts. i also think its funny when someone thinks the more comments on a poster the better it is. they don't realize these are just another offshoot of the forums.
right on, you know i love ya, off to the airport to pick up my wife and baby girl :D -tyler

Smoove BSend Smoove B a message :   I can respect that.
And I'm speaking as a non-poster artist. If I saw this somewhere in NYC, I'd think yeah, thats a pretty fresh take over all the shitty B&W handbiils all over cause I wouldn't know where parts of it came from. But on the artists behalf, I think they know better and take it deeper, thats what all the hubbub is about.

sbellinaSend sbellina a message :   where does it say I am 'the only one posting handbills'? I am talking about the artwork on those handbills, genious. i don't think ripping artwork is breathing life in to a scene. design-period is breathing life into the scene. Don't you get it????
Flyers, with some color... nice typography.. kick-ass imagery whether it's stolen or not. I gotta disagree with your comment, Smoove B.

Smoove BSend Smoove B a message :   This may be redundant but even if you were the only one posting handbills on telephone poles in NYC (I've lived there and I'll bet a lot that you're not the only one) how exactly do you figure ripping off artwork is breathing life into any local scene. Do it for fun, promote your band, but don't flaunt it around as your own with that who cares attitude.   2004-07-20 17:43:53

sbellinaSend sbellina a message :   I was never my intention to claim this poster as my own. I slapped it together 1 week before the show and it was only used as a handbill, to be passed around to punk kids hangin' out on the streets of New York's Lower East Side.
During the day, I work at a branding firm developing corporate identities, advertising, and marketing design for professional sports teams... doing posters is a side gig that I only do to promote bands that I am involved with. It's something I do for fun.
Napalm Stars was a glam-punk band that played sexy rock n roll in the tradition of the New York Dolls, The Stooges, The Clash, and the Sex Pistols. We had a show last year at Pianos and I remebered seeing the 'stripper clip art' on a Modern Dog poster for the Flaming Lips. I thought it would be hilarious to incorporate into something for Napalm Stars because she has stars used as 'pasties'.
Is my solution original? No. And I don't really care about that aspect of it. The solution is, however, appropriate and the image has more relavence to band like Napalm Stars than it does for Flaming Lips at Moe's Cafe, but that's just an opinion.
I get imagery for my posters from all sorts of resources... old porn mags, photos I collect, images of the web, and in this case.. right off another band poster. If I would have known this image would have gotten back to the people that created it, I would have been more careful in publishing it to a site like this... then again, I wouldn't have gotten an email from one of my 'design idols', whether embarrassing or not... it made my day.
I didn't realize how 'involved' this web site was. Somebody showed it to me last week and I just posted all my shit up at once. Never occurred to me that people would find this handbill I ripped off so offensive that they would find reason to resort to righteous hypo-criticism.
I never made a comment of 'breathing life into the art community of New York'. Have any of you seen the design work promoting of the local New York bands? I'm not talking about that hipster main street stuff either like the strokes and the yeah yeah yeahs... I'm talking about the beating the pavement with a stack of handbills posting shit up at 3am type of bands. Bands none of you have ever heard of, and will probably never hear of. It sucks. These posters revive life into that scene. The only other artist I am aware of taking part in that scene is Joe Simko.
So sorry to have offended you, but shit-storms are most fun when you create them yourself.

Have you people ever seen the cover of"London Calling" by the Clash? That album and it's cover is considered one of the greatest in rock, yet it remains a total rip-off of an Elvis Presley record.
I'll agree with the plagiarism comment. I see the difference between retro-fitting a nifty pin-up stripper into an original design and then someone else taking that same image from the original design and utilizing it in the same fashion. It's happened to me as well, so question my talent and integrity all you want. It was just one shitty little flyer for a show nobody went to at midnight on a Monday night. Sorry not stopping to consider the ethical rationale for my actions. -s

I have THREE full time jobs and I still come up with stuff without having to resort to ripping off other poster artists.

I never realized "inspiration" was the same thing as "photocopy fodder."

sbellinaSend sbellina a message :   Hell yeah I ripped it off. Right out of the AIGA book it was published in. Call it weak if you want, but finding the time to design a gig poster from scratch between being a full-time graphic designer and gigging in two bands is tough.
I'll agree that the NYC poster scene is weak cause I am the only one bringing life into the poster art of the local rock scene.
This poster was done 1 week prior to the show. About 10 punk kids attended the show... it was a free show. Bitch all you want, but imitation is the best form of flattery. Modern Dog was a big influence on my design education. Kudos to Vito for creating such a kick-ass poster. Thanks for the inspiration.
Now go find something better to do with your time, like going to the actual gigs.

Coby SchultzSend Coby Schultz a message :   Very weak. One of my best friends designed this poster, the talented Mr. Vito Costarella, and he'd be none too happy to see this lame rip off. Goose egg for originality.   2004-07-13 16:05:13

stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   This is weak. I have this exact same image on a Flaming Lips/Archers Of Loaf show that was at Moe in Seattle. BLT printed it. All those circles behind her used to say Moe. I'll post it so you can see. all that is changed is the colour and type.
Lame ass...
