one of my favorite things about the old playboy ads are all the paragraphs and paragraphs of copy. i love the tone of it all, like "hey friend, here's a secret I'm going to let you in on.." so much lifestyle. i always want to smoke and drink and buy a motorcycle and like.... a tweed jacket after i read them.
aka 'the cat's cradle'.
i can understand why chantry would never own up to it,maybe out of concern for it's usage, but wouldn't it just be easier to feign ignorance on it's origin rather than concoct a story about it being a dude? unless, he totally RESHOT the photo, perfectly, with a dude.. i'm sure creating the myth is more fun, and i can understand that i guess.
still. it has always amused me.
Peveto, if you come home one day to find your house broken into, and the only thing missing is your framed copy of this...it wasn't me.
This has be one of the most classic rock poster images ever, and maybe my favorite Chantry.
The Flaming is "curly" :-p
I know what you mean about slaving over type. We all do. I have a Rev. Horton Heat poster here under Studio 709 that we spent two hours dicking with the numbers for the date alone. Jason spent an eternity witht the type on the Stereolab and most people might not even notice but that guy has an eagle eye for detail. He'll kill you if typography is wonky. It's a good thing.
Clients are a pain in the ass. So far as Factor27 we've had one poster rejected and in retrospect it made us try so much harder that the second one kicked the shit outta the first. And I liked the first ALOT. Jason and Clay worked on an idea that was very similar to the feel of this. A middrift and a plaid skirt but if you look at the Plaid poster that ended up getting the green light it came out awesome.
And I take back the "only one rejected" comment I just had one rejected by THE BAND I MANAGE!! ungrateful jerks. It also eneded up OK because I'm gonna use it for The Doves show for Philaarts. It's more fitting for The Doves anyway. Funny thing is I told the singer who rejected it I didn't have time to make another so he went to OFFICE MAX and used their old school typewriter and xeroxed a poster that I think rules. Maybe I'll post it up with our crap if the other guys don't care.
I'm sure we will have plenty of rejects coming our way if we stick it out.
clients can be so stupid. i wonder whatever happened to that nit? for one summer that promoter was 'mr. hipster' in seattle and he started acting like his personal taste represented what was going to be cool in seattle. he's gone now. completely. good rid.
There it is. This is Hot Hot pink in person. I can't believe this was banned. Even funnier that it's a drag queen. This is one of my favorite posters that I have and just plain in general. Thanks Jaime! Oh and Art too. :-p
