Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   Rich I complelely understand where you are coming from. Well not the South Africa part but I do live in Jersey which can't be that different, and I relate completely with "the process of stumbling towards an aesthetic." but I think maybe if you don't worry as much about the asthetic and focus more on the messege of the poster your own style will come through... bla bla bla keep it up   2006-11-22 09:21:23
mark@methanestudiosSend mark@methanestudios a message :   Rich, Sure, believe me I can understand. I went through a similiar dilema when I first started out.   2006-11-21 07:37:49
richSend rich a message :   appreciated, mark - it is a process though, and this is only about the 3rd poster i've put on this site.   2006-11-21 07:22:12
mark@methanestudiosSend mark@methanestudios a message :   Rich, You are in a unique situation as the only printer right now in S. Africe and I can see why you are influenced by Jay & Dan but you need to establish your own look instaed of being kown as a second rate Jay Ryan. I'm not trying to slam you but try using these artists as a base for a style and develope into something of your own.   2006-11-21 06:58:16
hmmm_i_am_spySend hmmm_i_am_spy a message :   so....has anyone even considered the fact that it might be true that the poster is reminiscent of ryan's work, but that it might just be the point? isn't it true that in any form of visual art artists borrow from each other- both in the visual elements of the work as well as style, concept, COLOUR??? for god's sake....this poster incorporates many elements from different influences- as the artist admits himself. i like it, rich :)   2006-11-21 03:12:24
richSend rich a message :   this is indeed, not unconsciously, a Jay Ryan ripoff. The intention is not one of 'hurting Jay'- but rather one of paying tribute. Note where this poster is from - South Africa - i am the only person in that whole country doing screenprinted gig posters - and in terms of trying to establish some sort of design identity i don't think it unreasonable to use elements that i have recognized as being particularly innovative, in the process of stumbling towards an aesthetic. Re: "dirty" style - Both of my favourite poster designers, Jay Ryan and Dan Grzeca, could be said to be characterised by the fact that they turn screenprinting (traditionally a very graphic, flat colour medium) into sometihng that is actually quite tactile - this single element is something i try and aspire to myself. I am surpised by the debate (or derision) that this has elicited.   2006-11-21 02:30:12

Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   thats just great and all but this still looks like a rip, and naduval is right intentional or not does it really matter?   2006-11-20 13:48:32
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Who gives a fuck? Jay still does whatever it is he does better. This isn't hurting Jay. It really doesn't matter.
Jay created his own visual language. It was inevitable that it would be co opted by others. That's how this shit works.
There are 50 'designers' out there who's work is interchangeable. That's OK, but this isn't?

Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   true the more I look at it the more intentional it seems, like the white figure on a darker paper   2006-11-20 13:32:55
fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   It's the combination of multiple style points that makes it stand out as a rip.   2006-11-20 13:24:47
Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   yeah but thats like saying no one can use a split fountain in those reds because he used them   2006-11-20 13:20:35
fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   I totally think it was intentional, the similarities are too great - like you said, the sunburst lines are Jay-like as well.   2006-11-20 13:19:13
Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   that said I don't think it was intentional   2006-11-20 13:15:42
Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   its the reds too not just the type I think the two of those together make it more "jayish"   2006-11-20 13:11:49
fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   ENM, I don't think anyone has accused you of ripping off Jay yet so I think you're safe.
This poster, it looks like an afterthought to "cool it up".

The lettering though? Come on...

Mike GilbertSend Mike Gilbert a message :   agreed not erasing guide lines is now exclusive property of jay ryan   2006-11-20 12:51:15
fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   This raises an important question - can only Jay do "dirty" style from this point forward? Does he own exclusive rights to not erasing guidelines?
My initial answer would be "yes".
