perkinsSend perkins a message :   Man, ALL of Dan's posters look fantastic in person. This is not an easy style to pull off with screen printing either. Creating the seps for this kind of image requires some care & skill. But it all starts with the great eye for composition in choosing such killer pics to use. I think this is one of the freshest styles out there right now. Congrats on another bad ass poster.   2006-10-09 13:00:36

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Thank you all for your kind words. I am truly honored.
inthefade has a good eye, and is correct; the type's perspective is a bit off on the extremities. I spent a couple hours trying to tweak this; but matching the distortion of the type exactly to that in the image, caused by an earlier lens correction, proved impossible to one of my modest Illustrator skills, and I decided I could live with it. Nevertheless, I learned a lot while trying, and I've got a pretty good idea how I will address this next time.
I'm very happy it was this one that got me a POTW, because I had more than the usual amount of fun working on this poster. As always I look forward to applying the lessons learned, and I welcome your comments and critiques. -Dan

phoondaddySend phoondaddy a message :   inthefade, what do you mean? Crosshair climbs every building and paints the concert info on it and then waits 50 years for it to get weathered and then goes back and photographs it before the show.

inthefadeSend inthefade a message :   I bet this does look great in person. it is really awesome in so many respects. It is too bad that the perspective and curvature of the lettering isn't accurate (the text on the far left and far right should be more squashed outwards (to describe it in very simple terms)). I find that a little distracting. Still one of the most striking posters I've seen.   2006-10-08 07:49:42

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   Thank you friends. These sold like 2 for 1 crack at the show.
I really enjoyed working on this poster; it contains experiments with a number of new (for me) techniques, some with happy unintended consequences.
Thank you R. Goodtimes for valuable 3D modeling guidance.
