art chantrySend art chantry a message :   diesel -
exactly. thank you.
besides, if you can imagine it without the type in the white space, it'd be a striking and effective poster/flier/whatever. frank miller certainly didn't do that part.

andydieselSend andydiesel a message :   it's a flyer, probably stapled up to telephone poles to advertise a show. Who cares where the art came from, it's not like this guy is showing it at an art show.
people have been lifting images for flyers for years.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   uhm, no. you have to prove that to me. all i have is your say so. that's not very much.
however, if it's a direct lift, then it's still a nifty design, however poorly exectued with that type in the white space. remember it was a little cartoon image in a comic book (assuming it's a lift) and not a poster/advertisement. different function and thinking involved here.
but even with that said, if it is a direct lift, it's probably just lazy and more than a little stupid. he should have just drawn his own version and nobody would ever have known to cry bullshit. you don't have to be a rocket scientist to draw an image like that.

JohnnyThiefSend JohnnyThief a message :   Uhm, no. I'm saying this is lifted directly from the book, not the style,... its stolen, colon,..   2005-10-15 06:14:42
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   all that said, i think this is a pretty cool, very effective little piece. my only crit would be that i think the type stuck in the upper right white space should have been tucked below and the space left open. when people lay things out, they tend to want to "fill holes" (usually with type) in the design. it's a natural tendency. but sometimes, the empty space in the layout may be the most important thing in the tension created by the design.   2005-10-14 07:50:30
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   plantweed -
yeah, i just get so tired of reading comments about "ripoff" when virtually everything on this site is a ripoff. it's all like the pot calling the kettle black, over and over. it just makes everybody look ignorant and amateurish.

PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   Yeah, I think this whole "style" basically comes from woodcutting techniques, and I'd say its use in '30s political posters are more in the graphic group-mind than Frank Miller.   2005-10-14 07:33:37
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i used to do illustration like that back in the 1970's. i stole the style from some guys working in the 1930's, who were stealing it from some guy's from the 1900's who were ripping off some guys from the 1870's and so on and so on. nothing original about this stuff, especially frank miller. he's just managed to exploit it better than most. that's all. there's nothing all that unique here, or in frank miller.   2005-10-14 07:22:28
