hey kids* probably to stop my whining clay has made me 'moderator' ( re: not teacher) of 'the poster class'. i'm happy to be here and hope that we can make 'the class' a beneficial aspect of gigposters.
that being said let me jump into :
THE RULES OF POSTER CLASS
*RULE #1 you do not talk about poster class.......actually complete bullshit, i just like the 'fight club' joke. just the opposite. tell everybody. the more people that participate the greater value it has to our unique community. tell artists, non-artists........your mom. nothing would please me more than having mrs. kozik and mrs. chantry contributing ( altho mrs. stainboy, mrs. ewing, mrs. motorcycle and grandma charlie would be cool too).
RULE #2 anybody can post .......it doesn't matter if you've never done a poster before or if you are the mythical wee-beastie that visited chantry in his dreams and gave him all his cool ideas.....the class promotes contributions from all.
RULE #3 anybody can crit ...from old masters to kindergarten....anybody! just keep in mind that it's supposed to be a crit that would help/benefit 'the poster' with your unique knowledge. you don't have to have a degree in art to have an opinion ( hell, most of us don't) and you don't have to censor your opinion ( once again, most of us don't) just don't be an intentional asshole to get some self-serving attention.
RULE #4 avoid 'pork-speak'......it's been great that gigposters has become a meeting place for a multitude of people around the globe but......i'd like to keep 'the class' a little more focussed than we tend to get. no problems with the occaisional off-subject smart-assed remark but, if things get too far off base, i will use my power to delete all non-class posts.
that being said
POSTER CLASS 11: RE-INVENTION OF IMAGE
from bowie to pat boone. madonna to leia bell......it's all about 're-invententing yourself'. so i give you.....

harp* that is sweet you mother fucker. one BIG problem tho. it's obvious that you let the computer do your posterizations from the funky 'dark olive-green lip' . just my own opinion but......if you used this as a 'blue-print' and hand did the posterization.......amazing!
still. great layout. dig the multiplying of the info.
balance* you fucker. almost everthing is beautifully there but.....the obvious filter just makes this look like beyond crap. quick solution to get it done fast. sorry mate. it really looks like shit ( and it could look amazing).
