raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   i think it works just fine. it looks great and it's different than your usual poster.
dig the fingerprints all over the sheet metal too.
have you seen any of these lately?
- did they all rust where you touched them?

ferrettegirlSend ferrettegirl a message :   It think it's good. I think it says all it needs too; just with the LOOK of it. In that way, it's working.   2003-12-03 23:13:04

Jeff KleinsmithSend Jeff Kleinsmith a message :   As years pass, I hate this poster more and more. It was Grant's idea to print a Nine Inch Nails poster on metal and asked me to come up with a design. He secured the gig and bought the metal sheets. I struggled to come up with something cool, floundered, and ended up with this. A welder woman I had done a poster for owed me a favor so I asked her to weld the "nail" to it. This is from 1993, so I can chalk it up to inexperience. Ha. I hate these kinds of visual puns also.   2002-11-20 10:06:48
Bradley W. ZimmermanSend Bradley W. Zimmerman a message :   no offense to them, but what was the hard part abut making these? i can spot-tig a nail and grind the edges down in 5min max with set-up. was the issue not messing up the print? was there a method to the dremel scratch pattern?
i'm not trying to be a dick, i'm just curious as to the process...

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   these were never hung, they were sold at the show. and a bunch of them never had nails welded to them either (to save grief).
my bullethole posters were hung with 16-penny nails - pounded right through the metal. after the first rainstorm they got so beautifully rusty you wouldn't believe it. i wish i took photos of it.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this poster (made by jeff and a guy name of grant alden, who is now art director/editor of NO DEPRESSION magazine, now. the poster was his idea) was such a pain in the ass to make that they cut short the run and didn't use half of the metal sheets - to save grief. the leftovers sat around in my studio for ages. i finally used the them to make my 'teengenerate bullet-hole' poster.
nothing exists in a vacuum.

standardSend standard a message :   To me, the word "pun" connotates "cleverness".
This is just like, a big nail.
Looks neat, though.

GIGARTSend GIGART a message :   wow...I never saw this one...very cool...every day I get to see amazing posters that I didn't even know existed like this...great job.   2002-11-19 23:04:56
lureSend lure a message :   this is awesome. kleinsmith is a master. when i first saw this i thought it was a scanned image, cool enough, but actually printing on metal and welding a nail to it, awesome.   2002-02-19 04:51:04
HamptonSend Hampton a message :   This is a brilliant "concept" peice. If your feeling artsy and it's just gotta to be done, follow Jeff's lead and give it some substance. Silkscreened sheet metal with a 9 inch nail welded to it definitely makes these bad boys qualify as rock posters for sure. I guarantee that more than 15 minutes were put into making these babies. Jeff, you truly rock!   2002-02-18 23:37:40
