I'm a local artist(poster artiest that is), also in a band and he has bootlegged my band and shows I have permission to do posters at locally. I call poo poo.
You are the artiest, though.
He's in Milwaukee. A far cry from LA. He's got plenty of ways to go about it right but instead makes a conscious decision not to. I get it, it's hard to get work if you're not big time, especially in bigger cities with tougher promoters/venues to work through. But that's exactly what makes bootlegging so infuriating. You're perpetuating the idea that poster art, especially by the little, local, no-name guy isn't worth much.
I thought this thread was going to be about mondo, and making posters for movies that came out years ago.
It's nice they started making posters to actually promote some new movies instead of this officially licensed commemorative crap they have been putting out.
Could I license an old concert and make new concert posters and not raise eyebrows? Hell no. I don't like the double standards. Why is it ok for movie posters? Licensed or not.
The rolling road show kicked ass. Not a fan since then. Good for rob though. Fill those pockets. Always glad to see artists making money.
