    That's exactly the kind of artist he is - riding high on a soap box of delusion. This is the same person that once told me he doesn't believe in teaching people how to screen print (specifically because I teach people how to screen print all the time) - that everyone should have to learn on their own the way he had to. I have an incredible amount of respect for anyone who's taught themselves how to do anything... but having a fucked up sense of entitlement to work in a totally unethical way because of that undermines any hard work he went through to learn how to print in the first place.

    That being said... can we all take a moment to appreciate THE official poster set for the Melvins/Mudhoney show? Way to go Bobby.

    This thread was a pretty interesting read. If this guy has been doing posters a long time, I see his point in being pissy about local artists not getting a good, big, poster gig. The poster game used to be based around local poster makers, it is not that way anymore when it comes to big shows. Things change, and you have to move on. This guy would not be out on the street selling them if no one is buying them, it is tough to try to pay rent if making posters is your main gig. Here in LA, promoters don't pay anything for artists to produce posters, at the most, they might pay for paper, and demand a chunk of the run, that they never use to promote. The promoters hardly ever put you in touch with the bands. Out here you do see designers and screen printers going the bootleg route, because you can make more money than getting the commission. The best way is always to contact the bands, they and their management often consider promoter commissioned posters as "Bootlegs" merchandise companies and some record labels see it the same way. I have even done a few posters through the bands the we did sell on the street to offset the percentage a big LA venue was demanding off the merchandise sales. Out here, the promoters do nothing to stop any street bootleggers and the cops could care less. If you want to do bootleg posters and sell them out at shows, come to LA, our weather is great for it and we don't have much of a local poster scene to anger. You will hurt your rep a bit, and some roadies might kick your butt! My advice to anyone about bootlegging is that you might make a quick buck, but if you are doing something shady, you are opening the door to other shady things. If you do not blow up big as a poster artist, don't expect to make a living for 15 years doing gig posters. You might turn into a bitter bootlegger.
