lettawrenSend lettawren a message :   i should probably clarify that i brought up seripop only to say that they're really intensely good at a style, and yet there are also people out there doing similar work that isn't a direct rip off... that there's room for work done in the same vein that doesn't feel like a blatant style lift.
this, however, feels like it's really a bite on jay's style, which is odd since the other posters from the same designer, as others mentioned, have a great deal of talent, a little touch of this style along with a lot of others, and so something this seemingly imitated didn't really need to be done. that makes it feel almost lazy in the end... no need to branch, i can just try to follow this style that another person has down to a tee and surely it'll work! problem is, the comparison is way too easily spotted and it isn't a flattering one.
okay, now i sound jerky... none of this should be taken to discourage this postermaker, just to encourage them to continue exploring some of the other stuff they've done, since it looks pretty rad and pretty unique. yes, it's all been done before, but that shouldn't keep people from trying to change it up.

Iron Canvas StudiosSend Iron Canvas Studios a message :   Here's something that I've been told pretty much by every professor I ever had and collegue in this sort of field. Everything has been done before, you just might happen to never, ever see it. Yeah, it's probably going to happen where someone comes along and has a style similar to someone elses, that happens. Just thought I'd through that out there.   2006-11-03 18:57:32

GregorySend Gregory a message :   everytime someone pays homage to anyone, someone mentions how seripop is getting ripped off all the time. are they? maybe in some cases but I think other people are getting ripped off how everyone imitates everyone with overlaid halftones and little text shields...I dont know, why do colorful or "naive" style illos/designs get slammed for being seripop rips? Is that the only point of reference for work like that?
something i've noticed

guyburSend guybur a message :   i was hoping that everyone would just ignore this poster and kill the obvious by ignoring it. i also don't get the point of this rip considering that the Drive By Truckers poster on the page is swell (should we wonder whose style that was?) yeah so skip on past the thievery and there is the seed of something growing here. unlesss there is a Jay joke/homage he is making that we are missing.   2006-11-02 13:13:27

crosshairSend crosshair a message :   I'll say this: The designer has done quite a lot of posters, showing an exploration of many styles. Some make very clear reference to other artist's aesthetics. And that is just fine, as experimentation and as a means to developing one's own style. But others really do showcase a growing individual style and are exciting on their own merits. (i.e., the Firey Furnaces poster from this week's batch)
My point is, you don't need to do this anymore. Nix the Ryan text on all future posters. It is time to move on from that. You've got plenty of your own cool stuff going on, and you're better off allocating your energy to exploring that, than doing studies of other artists. You don't need a crutch, you're quite capable of making art that stands on its own.

PlaidmanSend Plaidman a message :   Yeah, I think you can be inspired by someones style without crossing the line. I think this one steps over that line a bit...too similar me says.   2006-11-02 11:50:21

printmafia-connieSend printmafia-connie a message :   Guilty of doing a drive-by on this because I thought it WAS a Jay.
Jay and Seripop's styles are too incredibly unique to even be attempted.

lettawrenSend lettawren a message :   i guess to his credit a lot of his other stuff has elements of this, ti's just a little too jay ryan to not be noticed. that said, the seripop style is super crazy awesome and that's been imitated and never duplicated by other artists for a while now to great effect (even if i'm partial to the originals cuz their stuff's nuts!). maybe he'll find new ways to apply this and step away from such overt comparisons? i still think the scene's cool on its own - who doesn't love a pirate patch wearin' kitty?   2006-11-02 08:43:55
