MeelooSend Meeloo a message :   i agree with you !... the only point is that i don't like the illustration either.... to demonstrativ   2003-08-20 05:21:57
Phil-PadweSend Phil-Padwe a message :   The illustrations are good, but come on... this guy gets so much credit and I can't figure out why.
His style is totally a cross between Bill Plympton and Ralph Steadman... not bad, but I don't find it as stellar as everyone seems to think.
But what REALLY kills me is his terrible type... his ignorant, sloppy, hack-job, horrible, lame use of typography borders on criminal. How do you make as many posters as he has and never "get the hang" of using type as a design element?
If he spent one afternoon with a typography 101 book... or on a web site even... his work would improve immeasurably. Strikes me as lazy and ignorant... which seriously detract from the sketches. I know it sounds harsh, but honestly... I've been scratching my head on this for about a year now wondering what the fuck is up with the terror that is Hess' type...
