This is great! Thanks for introducing it to me, jose.
Why do all the hot chicks I want to marry either:
A. Dance on stage and want money to spend time with me.
B. Are already married.
C. Exist only on paper.
D. Don't like me.
Life sucks but this poster doesn't! Thanks for the thrills, Hampton!
This poster is wondeful! The colors are strong and the illustration as always with Hamptons work is incredible. I don't even like this band and I want one of these posters. Great job Justin! I like the way you use posters as an illustration first and the info is a secondary design elements.
Hey Justin, this is GREAT. I think your STROKES poster is clearly among the best. You mentioned that you thought lots of kick ass stuff had been done for the Strokes. Which ones do you think are the best?
Thanks alot, I really felt like I was pushing myself on this one to do something different. It's really easy to get caught in the trap of doing things that are almost formula for yourself, where it's almost exactly what people would expect every time. Hopefully I'll be able to keep searching for new ways to improve my work and not get stagnent.
And yes Jermaine, Kasia did pose for this, she's posed for all of my female figures since we first met in 99'. I've taken some liberty on the exagerations, but alot of people have reconized this one in particular as being her. I am most definitely a lucky man, she is my muse.
I think this is a good example of a poster that both the designer and illustrations factions could agree on. The illustration kicks ass and the layout is great as well. Good job.
I love your lineweight on this especially that curve on the left from the bottom of her shirt down to the top of her pants. I'm truly inspired....
Awesome poster!! Don't much care for the bands style of music, but this poster would entice me to go see the show strictly in the hopes of seeing this chic there....
It's just so damn cool....perfect colors and layout complimenting Justin's great linework.
Blows that two color quickie poster we did away!!!
Thanks, I love that suff. The Batman ones are killer. I've actually done an animated cartoon recently. It was done in Flash and is on my website under the "cartoon" link. It takes a high speed connection or alot of patience to pull it though, as it's 5 megs. It looks just like my posters come to life.
Wow, thanks for all the kind comments. There have been many kick ass posters done for The Strokes, they've all inspired me to try and do something fun and cool to add to the catalog here on GP. Go to the Strokes page here on GP, it's cool to them side by side. http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?band=4237
I'm going to have this available tonight on my website for purchase via paypal. I'm already getting flooded with orders before it's even set up! Way cool. Go to http://www.justinhampton.com and look under the 2002 posters page. See you in the funny papers.
Yea, Spacelady, I shouldve just put that one link. Wouldve saved me some time:)
Hmmm...Im trying to pick out my favorite Strokes poster. Its kind of tuff. I think Ill have to narrow it down to a 'top 3'.
some of them are very cool. some are very hacky. this one i think is the best. thanks for the links. but you can also simply do this link in a search for strokes.
yeah, that was not one of my kinder moments here at gp. i called speed on it when he announced he was gonna post the best strokes poster ever.
i liked speed's poster just fine and it sounds like they printed nicely, too.
and i must say this is a nice illustration, hampton.
Well Spacelady, with every new Strokes poster, if you say 'this is the best one ever!' you should know that you have to run that through me and Lure's 'Strokes Poster Test'! :)
To be the best Strokes poster EVER, it has to contend with these:
The Fillmore one-
and another one by JermaineRogers-
Now, are you prepared to say its still the best, after seeing all of these ones?
(kidding, really:) Someone else came here and said something about the best Strokes poster..I forget who. So Im ribbing you like we ribbed him)
There ARE a buncha good ones, tho.
This is great Justin,the band is going to love it.After reseaching a design I did for a poster for them, they are totally into the NY girl kind of feel.They said I nailed it and I damn well know you did.Sweet!!
incredible! the background fade of color. the mixing of info around the poster. the fact that she can be anyone in your mind as her face is positioned beautifully. great illustration. this is the best strokes poster.
Breast strokes..Love the way everything is integrated together here..bands on the body..promoter on the magazine..yeah, logo on the sweat band..and neat effect with the white text and border..and the top/bottom cut-off..hard to find anything I donít appreciate about this..Excellent work in my eyes..wonít be able to resist this..to go along side my other Hampton faves..
