im going to add that octopus, a few birds, an owl, a dead tree, and some telephone wires to it before it goes to the printers. it'll be the shit.
then just think if we had those TAGS. i'd be gettin' mad hits yo.
I don't think it really matters. Just because we think skulls/flames/birds/octopussies etc are overused doesn't mean t he general public does. We're exposed to 90% of the opsters being made whereas your local concert goer maybe sees 1% or less of posters being made. They don't know if something is overused or not so if it's approriate - go for it.
I think this looks just swell. I've just been seeing him on the randomizer a lot lately,
