i just tripped across some old "CARtoons" mags from the late 80's that were peppered with shawn kerri's work. one of the issues even has a removable full color poster insert that she drew! nolan strals earlier in this thread mentioned her work for CARtoons.
way cool stuff stuff. she really was exceptional all around. a master.
i think that's a GREAT idea! new rule: before you guys take on a project, you have to ask me if i want to do it first (since i'm so much more 'experienced".) good idea, electr.!
actually, i've always found that the bigger the gig, the more likely it is that some unknown artist with blind hustle will get the poster job. over my "career" (chuckle) i've very (extremely) rarely (actually, never) been approached with an opportunity to do a major concert or band. it just doesn't work that way. you have to go out and grab the sucker before somebody else does. that's how it works, that's how it's done. i've never done that. don't have it in me any more.
that image of lee harvey oswald/skull-n-crossbones was lifted from an old playboy mag. good luck with that. playboy goes way hard when it comes to protecting their copyright on their back issues. rule number 31(b) of appropriation is: "never ever steal from playboy".
