Hey, this is Mike Reust, (Mad Rooster) thanks to all the ppl who were being cool and helpful when I was on here about a year ago. I moved to Austin about the time I dropped out here, and have been struggling to make it since then. I realized that part of my problem is that I had been ignoring the business end of things, and communities like this one. I'm going to try and be more involved here, and would welcome comments/shouts from others, especially Austinites.
One of my flyers has just been selected as "poster of the week" by 'nites, an Austin music blog. The link is here: 'NITES, a music blog for Austinites: Poster of the Week: Scorpio Rising @ Club 1808
I've also got an online portfolio, available upon request, and welcome inquiries from up-and-comers or established bands worldwide, who need artwork. I've figured out a system to help out starving bands with cheap flyers, while still making a profit, but also love to do high-end, fully illustrated work. I'm also interested in collaborations or symbiotic relationships.
