Robbie FuctSend Robbie Fuct a message :   i usually think your art is pretty good with the few that pass through where you neglect space and the idea itself is bland.
this one i actually had to comment on. the snake was from the last shadows fall show. and the background was from supersuckers.
each should be unique. not recycled.
sorry dan.

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   im really tired of this discussion.
ezra is doing his thing. like he does on all his posters. same as grzeca, ryan, seripop, do there thing on all their posters.
who cares.
i for one actually dug that it was a slightly classier looking cannibal corpse poster - and i am in fact a fan of c.c. (atleast the old shit pre-corpsegrinder on vox).
i see it and i know its a cannibal corpse poster. why? because it says it right up top in the negative space.
end of story as far as i am concerned.
but then again - i am someone who likes to do his "thing" on each of my posters.
the last poster i did with the skull and naked girl morphing/question mark looking thing....was for a pop punk band of all things...and you know what...they loved it and it sold well at the show to fans of the band.
i say leave this guy alone and let him do HIS thing and you do yours.

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I like the stupid metal sterotype images. 15 years later and they never get old. You know? Because they fit and the bands like them and want them. If Death Metal bands keep using the same stereotypical imagery, then there must be a good reason. NO WAY designer with no contact with the band can make that choice for them. And Ezra, i see where you are going with that last comment, and it makes a little more sense. The problem is you use this same style for more than just bands that play "legible non-sense."   2004-11-01 15:54:43

jelle cramaSend jelle crama a message :   i like people experimenting to get rid of the stupid stereotypes (that metal still carries), but ok, this poster DOES look like a 'nice' school assignment. (probably because of the 'street art' look of the fonts, which is a common thing these days in graphic classes) actually its a lame 'experiment' to use such a style for this band, but eitherway i dont agree with 'doing something people expect but new'. thats boring. then you take a start from the bands previous artwork in stead of your own listening experiences.   2004-11-01 15:43:59

After all is said and done, this poster looks like a nice school assignement (please, no personal offense to you the poster maker ). As a band, I am what is being advertised, I what people to know what our show would be all about.
AND Kozik did indeed illustrate what the shows were about that he made posters for (melvins, qoftsa, etc, etc), it was a eclectic type of music that was between acid rock and punk rock, so juxtapozing popular culture images was exactly what these bands were doing with the sounds of their songs, they were mixing the past together to make something like a post-apocalptic popculture future.

And I could argue all day about how this poster is way different than what Kozik did all those years ago.

SashSend Sash a message :   i think this poster works. it may be too subtle for some death metalheads, but i disagree that an artist is simply a technician that is to comply strictly w/ the band's aesthetic. look at kozik. are we to believe that all those bands were about a twisted Hanna-Barbera cartoon look? come on! and yet those posters worked. why? attitude. context. an artist that merely limits to the band's parameters isn't really contributing too much.   2004-10-31 18:22:11
SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   I feel bad that people are most likely making you feel bad about this poster. I don't know how new you are at making posters.
Hmm, as a band, I get disappointed when the person making the poster didn't get behind what the feeling of rock n roll is to promote the show right so that people will want to come out to the see the show. I cringe some times and I get really nervous that the poster will jinx the show. Sometimes the clubs get some friend of theirs to make posters and these get me really worried! The more exciting the poster the more people that come to the show, I have seen this time and again. it makes people want to be there. And club posters often are aweful, and make me feel that they didn't really care about our band.
Since this is a loud, screaming metal band, I think that you could have done a snake eating itself theme in your style and made it exciting for the fans of this band to want to be at the show. Sometimes you have to push yourself to make your customers happy. I think all posters shoudl be awe inspiring in their own way, in the way that is needed for the event.

jkellySend jkelly a message :   Me personally,sorry to jump in here, but I'd say that the font is the problem with this poster. It'd be a whole different animal with a haggard-looking metal font similar to the one Cannibal Corpse uses, even a stylized version. anyway...   2004-10-31 17:13:42

would you say then, that you don't like this poster? "The trick is to do what is expected, and still make it 'new'." ah, the voice of reason... I think this is what we've all been trying to say.

It is really, really easy for anybody to make an appropriate poster for any band. You just have to want to do it.
Adding your own style while keeping the bands athetic in mind is the perfect scenario.

Okay, this makes perfect sense to me . . . Thank you for explaining why you didn't like it, it was educational from a third party perspective.

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Well if Cannibal Corpse themselves have not gotten tired of the disembowled Jesus ( and to my knowledge have never had Jesus in any manner on any of thier art as they are gore based and not satanic death metal which are 2 totaly and completely different things) then why would any artists or designer feel the desire to go ahead and change that for them?
Whos band is it? Whos gig is it? The poster artists? I don't think so.
It's not. It is a Cannibal Corpse gig. Do something true to Cannibal Corpse. You owe it to them to reperesent them in a way that fits them not the designer.
We do these poster (generaly) without the band having any input into the design. So like, we should do our best to do something that will advertise the band playing. Why else do a poster?
If I were in Cannibal Corpse and saw this I would be pissed. It will likely not reach the CC fans in an appropriate manner. So potentialy less people could know about the gig. But like I said, I like this as a design. I just don't like it as a Cannibal Corpse poster. I think it would fit a modern metalcore band better. Like, if this was for Unearth or Darkest Hour it would be perfect.
But I have been over this before a million times here. I sound like a broken record.

i think anything relating to decay and death other than said image. at the same time this poster does relate ENOUGH to the band. there needs to be more. i don't think this style of work shouldn't be used in death metal. why not? it's not typical but the subject should be.

This is not in the bands style. Creative or not. To my knowledge they have no connection at all to a king snake eating a rat in a field of grass with bees flying around. I simply don't see the connection between this poster and the band.
Drawing a connection between the poster, the band and the audience is what would make sense to me.
