DecabetSend Decabet a message :   That would have been way cooler.
Like those two buildings in the back, they could have had big signs on them that were the logos.
Just seems inappropraite putting them in the bat signal like anyone BUT the peeps that own those companies gives a shit about their participation.
Not ripping on the artist. Gotta do what you gotta. Im ripping on heavy handed, art-wrecking, corporate douchebags.

GIGARTSend GIGART a message :   If Samsung or Cingular would like to pay me to do a poster for them and put their logo big in the center...please call me. I can do that for you. Or any other huge company that would like to pay me to make a poster with their logos big in the center, please contact me. I can do that...   2005-06-15 17:33:29
boadiceaSend boadicea a message :   the Sponsors could have put their names at the top of the 2 buildings.. that would have looked cool and appropriate. instead of in the center of the poster to highlight their cocksuckedness...   2005-06-15 17:29:00

DecabetSend Decabet a message :   I think this is a great piece.
I understand that sponsors tend to be complete tools that want their logos big at any cost, but cant they see that it just makes them look stupid to get this kind of prominent placement?
I cant imagine it helps Cingular at all. Even a 13 year old would see this and think it was corporate cloying.
Still, a very good poster. Especially under the circumstance of having to run a short story's worth of names on the damn thing.

EwingSend Ewing a message :   Again...concert posters are all about advertising. You guys are attacking Bawidamann based on his style and not on what he posted.   2005-06-15 13:45:26
boadiceaSend boadicea a message :   Corporate sponsorship is a fact of life. One could look through Mr. Ewing's portfolio and realize he is a great and talented artist. But the fact that branding jackasses are no longer satisfied to ruin a poster by putting their logos at the bottom, that the poster has now become NASCARized to pont where the logos are the main central focus of the corporate bitchslap to art, whats next? Nice poster though. I am just glad its not another bawidly drawn 5th generation pinup girl.   2005-06-15 09:29:24

Cody PomeroySend Cody Pomeroy a message :   wow, so that's where that all began...what a retarded argument. And besides, everybody knows the Vans Warped Tour is simply a huge commercial geared at the biggest consumer group in the US.
fuck that shit, not worth it.

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I have never understood the hype over bawidamann's stuff. It's cool and all just not my thing. It's funny how people blow smoke up his ass even though he is jumping to conclusions about peoples intent on posts. If Chantry had posted that everyone would devour him alive. I also miss driving Ewing all over Hollywood. Those were some fun times. I also miss the free lunchs as payback for being a taxi.
The day Ewing gets a liscence I will eat my shoes.
I will also eat my shoes the day a poster artist proves they made enough cash from gigposter art to buy a 5 series BMW. That shit just isn't in the realm of reality. In fact it's laughable.

andydieselSend andydiesel a message :   holy crap, great way to use a million bands on a poster. at a glance they looked like bricks to me.   2005-06-14 23:55:13
EwingSend Ewing a message :   Jeph, I'll be at the MA show. Let me know if you'll be going to that show. I'll be at the NY show as well. I had so much fun last year I hafta go again. Foxboro had one place to check email...the library. They almost wouldn't let me use their computer either because I looked questionable...then a bunch of swamp-assed guys from some of the bands walked in to check email as well. In comparison I looked normal and was 'allowed' to use their computer. Sometimes I forget I live in LA and assume everyone looks as retarded in other cities.   2005-06-14 23:25:20
ShadSend Shad a message :   All those logos and that text are nuts. Great job. I love those clouds.
Singular Wireless Man could have looked way corny, this looks REALLY GOOD!
  2005-06-14 23:24:14
RhysSend Rhys a message :   Mate I know exactly how you feel. A job I just finished really suffered due to "the committee". The client wanted one thing, the band wanted their say a few others who weren't even really involved somehow got their say and it quickly went downhill from there. Two good (one great) ideas were presented but the band (by the way the poster wasn't for the band it was for the night they were playing at) would not budge.
In the end I just had to draw the band. Its sad when nice art or design suffers like that. I'll have to show you the stuff. If you have the original concept for this one (personally I think this poster is pretty tops) email me, I would love to check it out.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.

EwingSend Ewing a message :   I just cut and paste from the website. If I misspelled anything I'll just pass the blame on the guy who put together the warped tour website.
This poster ended up being a design by committee. There was a lot of back and forth. I did the artwork and initial design but when you do work for pay you hafta choose your battles.
Bawidamann summed it up best and honestly. People are always trying to put their hands on a project. Even the bands.
The rest of the series turned out pretty cool. I'm happy with them at least and so is the client and the bands. I think they look better than what I did last year. That was my main goal. If the poster community likes them...cool, that's an added bonus but not my major concern.
I'll post my tour schedule when I figure it out. If any of you folks are gonna be in the same city or on the tour...drop by, say "hi" and have a beer with me.

bawidamannSend bawidamann a message :   All right. I don’t join in on these things too often….too busy making art I guess. But I have really fuckin had it here. I am tired of people dishing out shit when others seem to be having some sort of commercial success. If you are ever priviledged enough to actually work with for someone who has REAL money that means that sometimes you have to include someone’s bullshit logo on your art. Also when you work for a large entity you have to deal with burned out has been or ever was art directors who feel the need to two put in their shitty 2 cents so they can feel like they are still relavant. And you have to turn it around on a dime. It usually is not ones strongest work by far but the plus side is that you make enough dough to buy a 2005 BMW535i with CASH in 6 weeks. But I guess anyone that wants to talk shit really would never know anything about that end of the biz.   2005-06-14 16:22:12
EwingSend Ewing a message :   1 of 6 posters.
I'll be going on tour again for this.
If you wondered why I haven't called, emailed or wrote you back it's because of this. The project is winding down. I'm going to get some sleep finally. Two months of work for the project. I'm a zombie now.
