Ok I wasn't going to post this but i'm kind of interested in how people feel about this. Ok so I created this poster
Not that bad i think. Well venue put it up for about 24 hours and then ripped them down. Said a group that had been in the venue was super offended. Now they want to have a conversation about whats appropriate. fuck that. Oh i should mention its an all ages venue and I do LOTS of posters for them. I feel i should also mention i get paid nothing for these posters unless i sell my copies. They have never asked for art approval. Also the current gallery exhibit in the venue is paintings of naked women and assholes. I have also been showing the illustration around the venue, Facebook, instagram, and NO ONE from the venue said shit and I'm friends with quite a few of the staff. The marketing/booking person (i don't know what she actually does) liked it on instagram WITH THE VENUES INSTAGRAM account (as did one of their board members). Still no one said anything.
I'm of the "go fuck yourself" opinion but was curious if anyone had any feedback, advice, opinions or similar stories.
