the last one i sold privately for about $600 or so. but i had to split it with a gallery.
i only have a couple left to sell 9after 25 years. i need to save them, really), the price will skyrocket from here. that way i'll still have some for portfolio and museums. silly, but true.
not bad for "hackwork", eh? i must have something right back them.
"so, is it a rip off? in a way, it is. it's taking a strong design solution developed by somebody else and using it as a crutch. it's really no different than that fella who did those great poster using old postage stamp borders (called a 'cartouche') and putting in new images and words. they worked really well, but after awhile his illustration (and his design) sense got better than his gimmick, and he didn't need that border 'crutch' anymore to carry his ideas. in his case the cartouche began to hurt his work. The same is beginning to happen here with this poster."
a few years back someone told me to look up this art chantry guy...that I'd be really into his work... and the first thing I ran across with his name on it was this poster... right away I knew he was brilliant (and had great taste in music). I stole the magazine I first saw this in a few years ago I had to have this one thing so badly.
Wow. "Modern Productions." "The Showbox." That takes me back... The best thing I can say about this poster, is everytime I see it, it looks brand new all over again (and I've seen it a gazillion times). Double wow. Triple wow. 20-odd years of wow.
