so, in closing (for me), i think this is a great poster. i'll be watching to see what comes along next for you. i'm sure i'll get a kick out of hit. and if you hang out here, enjoy the battles, cuz you won't avoid them. but, it's still worth the effort. this is a great sioght. world class. important, even.
now, that phillarts fella - HE'S a dick. i pale in comparison to him. the worst part is that he actually thinks he's witty. hard to believe, but it's true.
like, for instance, he thinks it's funny to be my "friend" on the telephone and is really sweet and nice and then he gets on gp and constantly lunges at me with a pitchfork. i think he thinks that sort of thing is 'witty' or 'clever'. i guess. i'm personally really really sick of that crap. i wish he'd just go away and shut the fuck up.
in a weird way, you are, sorta. a lot of people seem to think that doing gigposters makes them punk rock stars. it's silly, but they really think that. hell, i even thought that for a while. really stupid.
i think this is a really cool, great poster. the image is really interesting and explosive and powerful. the typographic treatment is nasty in that it does exactly the opposite of what 99% of gp'ers would do. it's almost anti-type. and look at that big black space in the upper left. who the fuck needs color? that's beautiful.
there are some real dicks hanging around on gp. they tend to think that calling you a moron or calling your poster a failure is an actual crit. you have to develop a thicker skin. if you don't learn to deal with it, move on. if they get too nasty, step out of the room for a while. it'll cool down again. it really will.
of course, they'll still be waiting for you to make a mistake....
i give up, kids. i can't even talk on a thread without this stuff happening all over and over and over. i wish you kids had lives that didn't involve hating me. too bad. i could be a good friend to you.
phil, blackball, frank, it's all yours. have at it.
