oh im sure... peveto should have stayed in line.. man sometimes he is so stupid.. but yeah. if this chick from nj contacts me ill totally bring it up.. she contacts me like one time a year to see if i have anything new willie.
Geoff tried to get it signed by Wille but in Austin he is the next thing to god (Willie - not peveto ;) and there was a line that went on for ever...Geoff was disappointed. I bet if he got in contact with someone who could hook up with him or his managemnet outside of a Texas show you could get his John Hancock...hook Peveto up Dave - he deserves it for all the effort he piled into this beauty.
in my ltd 2nd hand news,willie loves posters... he loves to meet fans... he will sign anything and is a very nice dude. i sent alot of willies to a person who was going to the show, he signed 20 of them and was very nice.
bless that red head.
This one should be hanging in the Smithsonian! What a perfect concept. We have a bunch of road signs in our studio and we really wanted this but Scrojo tied my shoe laces together on the way over to their table and I ended up knocking over the entire Factor27 table and even a portion of uncle Charlies. We settled out of court. If it wasn't for Charlies fat fucking ass cusioning the blow I would've surely busted my nose again! Like I said to Charlie super late in the evening Saturday night "Thank God for your magical buns Charlie".
This just goes to show you what happens when someone actually takes the time to execute the idea. It is everything with this poster. Otherwise it would only be half done. Way to NOT be lazy! Great job.
Dang. Thanks alot Fylar. Pretty proud of this one. Each one is different too since they were aged one at a time. Everybody should check out these two links. One is Art's Teengenerate and the other is Jeff's Nine Inch Nails. The reasons I did this poster.
I've been training a small family, or "pride", of slugs for 4 months now. The youngest are able to follow detailed lettering which I smeer onto the screen using rotting eggplant juice. The larger patriarchs fill in the big headlines and band names. It's a slow process... it goes at a snails pace.
Yes AA Art did a really great Teengenrate/Mono Men poster printed on metal like a Japanese Zero with bullet holes and all. It is that very poster that sent me off to design this. I admire great majority of Art's catalogue (I bought his book ;-) ) and I met him a few weeks back and actually showed him this. I explained he was the inspiration and he was EXTREMELY gracious and complimentary. Jeff Kleinsmith also printed a nice Nine Inch Nails poster on metal, welded a nail to it. Two of my favorite designers. I wanted to do something that could possibly be held in those ranks. I've been sitting on this idea for two years waiting on the appropriate performer that fit this old no trespassing style.
This ties into the conversation about the Volante print. As a designer I think you have to consider the aesthetic of the band and their music or any event for that matter. If you do a totally irrelevant design what's the point? I'm guilty of missing from time to time but I really try to fit the piece to the "client." And people, bands, fans, etc. DO notice when you make the effort. A good design should work on lots of levels. I have people point out stuff that sometimes I didn't even consciously add as relevant element. Point is they do look for that.
Anyway don't know if I succeeded on this one but it's a big ass piece of metal and it looks like it's been on a fence for a long time when it was only printed less than a month ago on brand new, shiny aluminum. All the "rust" is paint.
