grealish* thanks for tripping down 'memory lane'......
after your nightmare i looked into things and it got a bit crazy. everyone who 'knew' about this poster loved it ( altho i will admit now that the fonts suck ). venue, agencey and band were beyond stoked on this poster...and had no problems w/ 'after-sales'. have yet to hear from management but, because of your nightmare, i've made it clear to agents that i will drop a poster out of my catalog if someone complains but...i can no longer do any posters for any act from the same agencey unless i have complete written permission 3weeks before the show.
...our art is a 'dream-come-true' for 90% of bands,venues,promoters,agencies and (yes) managers. but having 10% of anything shoved up your ass never feels comfortable.
Scroj, you rock. This one is kickin! I just hope you don't get the Wrath of the Roots manager like I did. He does not understand poster art and the whole idea of it. As far as he's concerned you are bootlegging because he was never a part of the concept. The guy gets irate.
for those who had nice things to say: thank you.
for those who slammed me: thank you.
i have no idea who 'michiko' is but then again i was attempting a psuedo-'boondocks' look but i think i failed misserably. i've never been happy with this poster but the club,band and general public LOVED it ( and aren't those the people a poster is suppossed to please!?!). don't kno. thanks for the crits. -scrojo
just cuz it doesn't use 40 photoshop filters and they don't have swastikas on there heads and needles hanging out of there arms doesn't make it bad...i dunno..i REALLY like it ('cept the text - no offense). BUT, I love 'white space' (no pun intended)
It's not about "how long" it took to create a poster is it? I think this poster is solid. The design is good and it fits the band really well.
I think Michiko is a little over rated . There is nothing wrong with her stuff but I don't think it's "all that"
I think it looks cool...
...besides the artist you are referring to Speed, is Michiko Stehrenberger, and I aint seen NUTHIN' on this site that even CLOSELY resembles her stuff....
quit chuggin that cough syrup brutha!!!
wow, this must've taken upwards of 30 minutes to make! Sorry this looked is just so played that it is boring. What 9 year old can't draw this Mishiko stuff by now (she's the artist this guy and about a billion others on this site rip off). Plus, the Roots suck. Black Eyed Peas own them, LA, downtown, that's where it's at, jack.
