allenboeSend allenboe a message :   This poster should have a woman being raped by a goat(and the goat needs to be hung like no other) at the bottom with a dark flaming angel(who is ejaculating) sitting on a church stepel arms outstretched with crows perched(digging their tallons into the angels flesh) on the angels arms, you know whathing the the woman being raped and dying. Then I think we could have it all covered. So that when people go to the show they can have a better idea of what to expect that some guy in a speedo doing a stupid high dive act.   2006-04-08 13:37:03

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   1890s to 1920s, concert posters, doesn't mean it was Rock music, but they were concert/live shows.
By Cheret, Latrec, Mucha, and many others.
The 1960s poster artists copped off them completely.

perkinsSend perkins a message :   Take it all in stride man. As blunt as critism can be around here, it's really constructive in its own unique way. It certainly ain't sugarcoated, but as an artist that's not what you want anyway.   2006-04-07 16:59:50

OK OK, skulls flames snakes and naked women for now on.
And I'm still looking for 1890's concert posters.....even the Library of Congress doesn't seem to have any from that period.

HUNTSend HUNT a message :   Yep, I did the other one with the burning bomober. I posted it in the "High on fire poster series" thread a few days back.
I gave it to the band and hung out for awhile, they liked it. Said they liked we tried something different. They seemed stoked about the letterpressed work coming out.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   The job someone is hired to do when making a poster is to get people to do what the sponsor of the poster wants them to (sell a product or sell show tickets).
HOF, Goatwhore, Watch Them Die, what fertile ground for amazing imagery is there.
Is it in the artist's place to decide that what represent's an artist best? I seriously doubt it. If someone gave me a wallpager designer type poster for EF, I would never use it (I should rip it up) cause it showed no respect for a) the band b) the fans c) the job requirements.
This is a well designed poster, clever, clean, clear, but so what, I really don't feel very compelled by it.
No one needs to be a copycat and repeat the same ground, but at least think of the job requirements and put yourself in the audiences place a bit.
Like I said before many times, look to the first concert posters from the 1890s, they always fit the job requirements in the most compelling beautiful way cause they had to compete for wall space and for people to come to the show.

asthmaSend asthma a message :   not sure if they were buying... i was watching the band and not the merch booth... but i honestly didnt see anyone leave w. them.. maybe they took the 5 posted on the windows and saved themselves some dough.   2006-04-07 13:41:51
lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   were people buying them? that would seem a rather good indicator of appropriateness and/or appeal to fan base.
I've had similar criticisms here only to have the run of posters sell out. And I've done stuff that supposedly 'nailed' it that I still ahve piles and piles of.
No accounting for taste.

asthmaSend asthma a message :   i went to this show last nite. they had 2 posters for sale, both by the same company. this one wasnt signed or #ed, yet the other one was. i will post the other next week if it hasnt been submitted by then. the other one didnt 'fit' either. oh well.. opinions shall be unleashed when that variant is submitted...   2006-04-07 12:47:37
cmcgarrSend cmcgarr a message :   yea, I'm a dude.
I had seen enough skulls and devils and snakes and skulls on fire and stuff and wanted to take a stab at the name of the band in images rather the words in the songs. design is great and subjective, we all got opinions. hand carving linoleum and using metal and wood type brother man.

El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   I was waiting to see what folks would say about this. I haven't listened to enough HOF to come off as an authority, but judging from previous posters, it seems to deviate from the "feel". Jeff, Casey's a dude.   2006-04-07 08:23:24

however, I don't think HOF is one of those bands...

JephSend Jeph a message :   It's like doing an Iron Maiden poster and putting flowers on it.
That would be WRONG!!!!!
Like..I've never done a poster for Maroon 5..but if I did, I wouldn't put a zombie crying maggots...because I KNOW that's not thier vibe.
  2006-04-07 02:01:25
JephSend Jeph a message :   I liked Slater's HOF poster, for me it was a different take on the band, without deviating too much from their vibe. When I look at Slater's poster, I can still envision HOF, this one and a few others miss the mark completely for me. It's not a "bad" design, it's just a "bad" design for HOF.   2006-04-07 01:58:28
VegetableLasagnaSend VegetableLasagna a message :   Yeah, fitting the band is always the hardest part. Doing it in an original way is the toughest, i think Slaters HOF is different than a lot of HOF designs but I think it fits pretty well. Some of the tie-ins to evil and such are subtle on that one.
There was something I was going to say about this particular pritn but I can't remember . . . I agree with Jeff, but at the same time don't be affraid to let your freak flag fly as it were. Take chances, I just don't think this one was very inspired.

JephSend Jeph a message :   OK, I'm gonna spout off here, but I want Casey McGarr to know that it isn't his /her poster that set me off, but more some things that I hold true...
If you've EVER heard High On Fire, you'd know this poster has NOTHING to do with the's merely an artists play on words. And although mine and many of the High On Fire posters may not be the most "original" ideas in the history of poster making, they ABSOLUTELY fit the band and thier "vibe". Which leads me to Maxflo's and Stainboys' credos, which have been duely noted on this site. Make the poster / posterart CONNECT with the band. Y'know may be a "Played out" idea or image, but who fuckin' cares...if it REPRESENTS the band then who are YOU (the artist) to try and re-interpet the bands image or vibe...they worked FOREVER on that vibe before you ever cam ealong and did a one off poster for them without ever listening to thier music.
Sorry, I'm rambling...but I'm sure somewhere there is sense...I think. ..try and find it.
