  for christ's sake, jason -

that's not what i said, you idiot.

some poop was whining about being picked on and even said something about taking the poster DOWN. that's why i said that.

and it was all the "gotcha" dudes that were calling out 'plagarism' remarks, so i shut them up.

i never directed one single remark toward you.

except the above "idiot". that just plain felt good. sorry.

  i didn't and still don't think it looks 'fake chantry', either. but FRANK thought it did. that was his INTENTION. he even says so earlier in the thread on this poster. lame.

that just goes to show you how far off the mark he was.

he shouldn't bother with such crap.

  don't post your stuff if you can't take remoarks on it.

as for type on shovel handles - go back and look at design books and type books and advertising books and etc. and etc. it pops up every so often throughout the decades.

you didn't invent it, honest. it's an old old idea.

hell, go to a hardware store and LOOK AT A SHOVEL HANDLE. you might notice that many of them HAVE TYPE ON THEM!

and don't try and say you've never seen a shovel.

  cody -

really? i PREFER his cartoon character work. it seems so much more like "frank kozik".

this other work done in randomly selected styles look like he's trying to fake something he can't do. it's always looked like that to me and he should quit trying to be everything all at once. he's much batter at his 'classic style', and that's what's given him so much acclaim. it's brilliant and perect for his personality.

this other stuff just looks insecure, like's he's afraid nobody will take seriously unless he shows he can do it all or some such nonsense.

go get a copy of 'swag' and look at what he submitted. no bad work, but not great work, either.

all the folks i know who have seen the book are greatly disappointed in his section. it looks like he sent stuff that he thought looked like important design work and not the work that made him famous. a terrible selection of frank's work for an 'intro/overview' sort of book.

man, if it ain't broke, don't go fucking trying to FIX it!

  i'll let you in on a little secret...

once i was working with pete on a logo project, and i need to create the word "records" because he didn't supply it. so, i had to sit down and figure out how to fake his lettering style well enough for it to pass in LOGOTYPE!

guess what? it was easy. he does it all with a pen, a straight-edge and an oval template. you can re-create it exactly! it's a snap.

there, that's a LOT off my chest...

  oh, come on. there's nothing at all sacrosanct or even original about putting type in a shovel handle. that idea has been around for hundreds of years.

get off your "gotcha!" bandwagon.

however, the heads of state design is much better. and it's all based on TYPOGRAPHY (hah!), where as the levitsky one is bad typography and a bad design. otherwise it's the same thing - and old idea.

and just because an idea is old means it has to be bad.

  frank -

i remember when you did this thing for dave. i remember you said you were "doing fake chantry" because it was so easy. you were actually hoping i'd get pissed at you for conquering my world and taking the piss out of me. exposing me, essentially. at least that was what i was told by folks that you were doing. you've always seemd to resent my work.

eveybody i know thought you sucked at "fake chantry".

you should stick to what you do best and concentrate on that. you'd produce a LOT LESS DRECK.
