Why oh why did we let the Pearl Jam kids turn the SG/PJ as 'the' 1990's rock poster?
This is the absolute BEST rock poster from the 1990's ... hell, the best post-psych rock poster
To this day nothing beats it.
trent reznor couldn't have bought the "tate house". that was torn down over a decade ago. the address of the property was changed, too. the location has been erased, the ground razed and sown with salt.
Exactly the same.
Coulda done this on the computer and been done with it like days earlier...and it wouldve looked the same.
Its like...almost comical to even like...you know...WHO CANT UNDERSTAND 'Progress in tools'?
Always has been my favorite of Frank's pieces...the color choice is here is just so damn perfect. I'd only ever seen it in catalogs etc. so when i got posters american style I was glad to have a large version of it finally, since the real deal probably costs wayyy too much for me. Also, cool to hear it was all done with hand mechanicals!
Funny - I just took a break from design work and wasting time on this site - sat outside on my patio and thumbed through "Posters American Style", a book I got out of the library yesterday...and on page 67 is this poster. I've never seen it before and now it appears twice in one day. Ooo weird. It's like I can't get away from you Frank.
This all done via mechanical paste up. the letters and Sharon where 1
mechanical, the eyes a second. the colors where like done with amberlith seps. Charlie was both a positive and then knocked out negative stat.
Art Chantry would been proud.
Yea i saw that book...Was psyched to see something that was hanging in my house in a fancy art book...I also dig that one of Chantry's with big daddy and Rbt Williams...etc...love the lay out of that chantry poster...
The Smithsonian put it in their
'20th Century American Posters' book and exhibit. I gave them all false
info..like 'Sneakyville Printing ' etc...
pretty cool. That page is like an Ode to The Family.
One of my all time favorite posters ever...Have one hanging in my dining room...I thought that those where windows too...(thought it might be the windows to the folgers/manson house)...This poster is the shit
