i did the cover for craphound 5 (the reprint you're referring to.) that was based on several posters i did elsewhere - like my give peace a dance posterf rom 1986 and the poster i did for my own seattle art museum show in 1993.
overlapping is great stuff. always works. i use it when i can't think of anything else better to do. never fails.
for what it's worth, i like this poster. i find it intereting and i'd like to see it in 'real life' rather than postage stamp size on a tv screen projected into my eyeballs. i'll betcha it's totally different.
anyway, i thought i'd piss off the boys and give them some fodder at the same time by pointing out that i actually like this poster a lot.
