OK, so I sent this out to my mailing list people days ago. It seems tho that word has gotten around to some folks who aren't on my mailing list, and Ive been getting several emails about it. A couple of fellow artists suggested that I post this up on gigposters.com to give anyone who isnt on my mailing list and may not know about this a shot at it. Since the mailing list folks have had a head-start on this, a chunk of these things have sold...so, not to sound all 'SUNDAY!SUNDAY!SUNDAY!', but like...if you want to get in on this...move fast.
Here's the relevant portion of the email that was sent out:
"Now, here's an interesting one. This is the poster I created a while back
for an amazing show by Dillinger Escape Plan and The Locust. At the show,
fans of these bands went nuts over this poster. Yes, there IS a meaning to
these images on this poster. Investigate the bands, and you'll find out.
HERE'S THE FUN PART: you'll notice a blank blue area in the top-left portion
of this poster. I designed the poster like this, not only because of the
unorthodox look of it, but also because I want YOU ALL to 'express
yourselves'. When you purchase this poster, you'll recieve the signed and
numbered copy of this print ALONG WITH AN EXTRA COPY of the poster. This
extra copy will have slight color variations to distinguish it from the
signed and numbered version. This extra copy is for you to DRAW ON. Thats
right. How would YOU have filled in this empty box if you were the 'artist'.
I want to know. Use any media you'd like: pen, pencils, markers,
crayons...heck, create your own inks from fruits and berries. I dont care.
Do your masterpiece, and mail it back to us at:
Jermaine Rogers Poster Collab
Houston, TX 77019
I will choose the best 3 submissions and award them the following:
2nd and 3rd place winners will recieve a 60.00 spending spree at
1st place winner will be awarded the oppurtunity to collaborate with me on a
bona-fide, genuine concert poster which will be released to the public.
Thats right. If you're submission strikes me above all others, you'll work
closely with me to design a screenprinted poster for an upcoming show, using
new artwork to be designed by both of us. You'll recieve printed credit on
the poster, as well as 25 copies of the print to do with whatever you
please. Of course, I'll foot the bill on all of the expenses: all you'll
supply is your lovely artwork.
So, you always wanted to be a poster artist? Here's your shot, pal.
But, you've got to order the poster, first...if you're into it. Whether you
participate in the contest or not, every order will recieve the 2 posters:
one to 'collect' and one to draw on.*
