jkellySend jkelly a message :   Dude, I'm really sorry. I just cannot read this. I look at the little box where it says what bands are playing and they back at the poster and then... I don't know. Is it spelled like it would be on a license plate? Aha! Ok. There, just had that revealation. No way would I have known that without the bands being listed next to it and trying to figure it out that way. Looks cool, otherwise.
As far as Seripop, weren't they just ripping off Fort Thunder? I kid, of course... however that "get in the van" seripop poster has a strangely Matt Brinkman-esque little man on it. I think there's a deeper conspiracy here than any of us realize.

gun shoSend gun sho a message :   i generally work in the same vain as chloe and yannick, most of my posters are for the same genre of music and the stuff i do looks like teenage mutant nija turtles on acid. our stuff is completely different. admitedly, i draw inspiration from thier work.
the genre of music you're working in shouldn't necessarily define the aesthetic of the design. especially when i comes to avante-garde and noise stuff. in the case of that genre, there's so much room for experimentation in that scene and that very fact is why chloe and yannick have evolved their own style.
there are a large variety of poster artists who are working in that particular genre who have vast and varied differences from one-another's styles.
you can do the same thing. there's plenty of room.
like i said, i don't want to discourage you. i'm trying to encourage you to push yourself past imitation. you've got something going on in your work that i think reflects a talent, but you're not going to really hit the mark as long as you are imitating.
you'll never make a seripop-looking poster as well as seripop does. just as no one will be able to make a devon poster as well as you do. that's the point that you have to aspire to.

Dance PartySend Dance Party a message :   yea its sometimes difficult because a lot of my crap that i sketch kinda come out very similar to theirs...kinda in the vain of noise and avant garde music oriented art. also, im in love with saul steinberg... but its still possible to have individuality within those realms, so its probably not a good excuse. my first couple posters are nothing like what im doing now...the thing with those is that the place i was doing posters wanted me to email the designs to them....i had no scanner, so i was forced to use photoshop...which im truely terrible with. the text on the other hand...i just realized is a total john olson rip-off. fuck. oh well. thanks anyways.   2004-11-24 14:30:19
gun shoSend gun sho a message :   i don't want my comment to be taken as an atempt to discourage you from making posters.
my hang-up is that this stuff simply looks so much like chloe and y's stuff but because it isn't, it comes off as a knockoff.
your style has changed so dramatically towards seripop's, that's is obvious that you are drawing a huge influence from their work.
that's completely cool, but you've got to make it your own. chloe and y are really good at being seripop, devon should be really good at being devon.
the only reason why i'm calling you out on this is because it's obvious that you are working hard and you are into what you're doing.
it's totally natural when you're first starting out to imitate other's work, but you've got to experiment more. you're painting yourself into a corner if you spend too much time trying to perfect a style that isn't "you".
i think it's important that you really try to find an orginal voice in your work.
i hope you don't feel that i'm picking on you, i just want to be honest in my opinion.

Dance PartySend Dance Party a message :   hmmmm sorry if this looks like chloes cat...i honestly had no idea when i drew this. i just took a picture of my cat, and drew that ....and the head looked retarded, so i cut it off. i try to be as original as possible, but sometimes it doesnt always come across that way.
ps-tetsinoru says hi, and we had a great time.

scott campbellSend scott campbell a message :   i mean, if everyone's going to jump on a poster that looks like shepard fairy's (who's style is taken from propaganda posters), then this poster that looks just like a seripop (very original style) should be torn apart by the gp masses. my opinion.   2004-11-24 12:57:16
seripopSend seripop a message :   hmm yannick was jjust pointing this out to me it sure does look like my cat :(   2004-11-24 12:51:10
hit and runSend hit and run a message :   I agree. Everyone uses another design to get ideas from, but that is a bit excessive.   2004-11-24 12:49:27
gun shoSend gun sho a message :   i've bit my tongue as far as commenting on these posters but i think that the seripop influence borders on the realm of unoriginal rip off. case in point
http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=26756
this cat is the same.
everyone's got to start somewhere and it's natural to be inspired by someone's work, but i think that this is a little bit of overkill here.

gneuralSend gneural a message :   I concur. Reminiscent of Seripop, but I like it nonetheless, especially the lettering coming out of the cat's arse.   2004-11-23 13:10:04
sungoSend sungo a message :   I don't know shit about shit, but when I first got here, about a year ago, there was no one doing anything like Seripop. Now it seems like every update contains two pieces HEAVILY influenced by Seripop.
A compliment, I guess.
