Ah I doubt KK really knows Nolen. He has this rep here in Charm City as a totally badass. Got all these crazy kung fu moves, carries a razor in his shoe...oh yeah, you cross Nolen, you pay with your life. You can see it all played out on HBO's "The Wire" --it's basically Nolen's hood on TV.
Um, I'm just goofing. Please don't challenge Nolen to a fight for godsakes.
i think chloe's assessment of the konger might be right, the last girl I dated said every female I seemed to talk about or know or introduced to her was a past girlfriend/fling...and some of em are still bitter...
though I got some PMs from kk saying that it (dont' know if it's he or she) was a very accomplshed pro designer blah blah blah... and just talking trash on me
I know I shouldnt' reply to some anon. BS, and this will probably be the last time I do... it just makes me :lol: :lol: :lol: everytime I see it's little :-x :-x :-x 's on screen
i'll keep an eye out for the comic your assistant on this drawing worked on...always interested to see what poster-related folks do outside of this stuff
that's pretty cool; i get called wolverine a lot by my friends' kids, mostly on account of the sideys & the movie...
this reminds me of mervyn peake again for some reason, just that creeping element to it i guess...verr nice...
ewing: having a friend like george pratt is great. not only is he fun to hang with, he is constantly pushing my drawing skills! it's like getting the art school education i never had (i went the way of journalism and graphic design at UNC chapel hill). if you dig george's stuff, he's got a new wolverine series out in the fall (wolverine in feudal japan!). on a goofy side note, i was his model for wolverine! i have to admit, he had to exaggerate the physique a bit ...
i'm glad you like the poster! email me if you want to get ahold of one of 'em.
This is so rad!!!!!
You know he's like saying "I'm gonna go git me sum a dat coconut cweam pie!"
Casey these are great. How awesom is it to have George Pratt to give you hand. It reminds me of the Paul Pope' Hugo Pratt style.
The lettering fits...the image is so vague...the mood is up to the viewer.
where can I get one?
i have to say, i'm not too terribly proud of this poster. i was happy with the way the drawing turned out, but something about the whole thing never felt too right to me. but i only had one day to draw, design and print it, and for the most part, feedback has been positive ...
i'm glad some of you folks are into it!
I like the letters at the top, but not for this necessarily. They dont' quite work with the line quality and feel of the drawing of the guy...which isn't always a bad thing, but they seem to be evoking diff. moods here. Still, it's an good poster, nice colors and layout... fast becoming one of my fav. illustrators on this site.
I checked this one out when it popped up in new arrivals - Sort of gave me a Wyeth / "Christina's World" vibe. I like the poster & like the band... But I think I see a pattern emerging - Last week was a poster for a club in Dayton by an artist originally from Dayton, and the band is from Dayton this week...
casey...the posters you have recently submitted are some great stuff...the figure of the running man is awesome...i like the squiggles by the feet...and the whole thing feels so desolate...as an enthusiast i dig 'em
