this poster is very nice...

SashSend Sash a message :   seripop's posters are often considered hard to read, and yet are very artistic. good example of pushing the boundary between "art" and "advertisement"   2005-12-20 18:35:39
victor_howitzerSend victor_howitzer a message :   I agree with Richie.
Great Artwork.

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   If it was my band I'd make damned sure you knew it. When, where and who.
  2005-12-20 17:56:42
seripopSend seripop a message :   mmm maybe but considering most of his posters are for his own band i don't really think it's valid in this case.   2005-12-20 17:55:30
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Sure. Probably does. But I think my point was made.   2005-12-20 17:53:46
seripopSend seripop a message :   i think the fact that this poster is for dan's own band gives him carte blanche to do whatever the hell he wants   2005-12-20 17:29:52
Platinum RichSend Platinum Rich a message :   this poster is for dan's band so i'm torn. richie's comments apply to so much of the work posted here though. i hardly look at the new arrivals anymore.   2005-12-19 21:35:11

JephSend Jeph a message :   If you were driving a spaceship through that sky you would almost definately hit one of those stars. I'm just saying you'd have to be a good spaceship driver is all.   2005-12-19 20:18:57
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Lest we not forget the all important approval of one's peers.   2005-12-19 20:18:30
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   You'll never get it. It's funny. You over intellectualize shit yet you're still a fucking moron.
It's perfectly obvious to me what this is. Its not about advertising. It's all about sales of the posters.
Make it pretty and make it so that it loks nice hanging in someones house. Fuck compromising and being smart enough to do both. Just make sure they sell.

SashSend Sash a message :   what are you talking about? Chris Brokaw rock band at the Helms. I remember the info perfectly.   2005-12-19 20:07:34
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Others will ignore it entirely.
It's a pretty picture. It's unremarkable as an advertisement.
As a piece of graphic design...well it's perfect for you tools to have a circle jerk with.
'Oh it's so smart. It draws you in and you just have to read it. We're so smart cause we took the time to read it and Dan is so smart for making a pretty picture and putting a couple words on there.'
Bullshit. You'll remember the picture. You won't remember the info WHICH IS THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT OF MAKING A POSTER.

SashSend Sash a message :   All "gigposter ideology" aside, I think it depends on the viewer's personality. Some will be drawn in out of curiosity enuff to read the text; others will be turned off.   2005-12-19 19:52:14

danielpwilliamsSend danielpwilliams a message :   Being that it is so minimal, it forces you to read the copy, even considering it's size. A wonderful gigposter.   2005-12-19 19:40:59
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Might as well be an art print. It's useless as a gig poster.   2005-12-19 19:33:56
