  i guess after reading this thread of comments, that it's high time to bring up "the green man", and it's importance in earth religions and pagan theosophy. it's an ancient image/icon from teutonic and saxon pre-history and is prevalent in the britisn isles, but is found the world over. it's sort of similar in concept to the corn man or wicker man as a symbol/personification of nature as the provider/devourer. it's the druid symbol of yin/yang. it's good and evil simultaneously. it's an extremely old and powerful image in western culture. seripop is obviously exploiting that idea - and using it very well - whether they realize it or not.

this is a 'green man'. no contest.

it's a good'n.

ok. on your recommendadtion, i will give it another try.

i saw it at it's premiere in north bend, washington (where the twin peaks story was roughly based. the theater was kitty-corner from the cafe). much of the cast was there, too.

however, the crowd was deathly silent when leaving the place. and it wasn't from 'awe', either.

welll, i love lynch's work, but he has two distinct styles. one (which i love) is that scary disturbing dreamstyle, and the other is that semi-comic style he thinks is 'commercial' or something (and sucks.) 'fire walk with me' is in that second category and i don't think i could ever sit through it again.

so, you'd best tell me what the hell yer talkin' bout, willis.

  hmmmm... do you suppose nova mob cancelled?

love it. i've always wanted to do a poster that had somebody super famous (like the rolling stones) headlining, and then hand cross-out each poster like this. i've always though that would be pretty snotty.

yeah, phish's management (the same assholes sueing poster artists) came to me to do some 'cool' posters. when i found out their 'work for hire' terms ($300 for total rights, no samples and no name on the poster), i said no (apparently house did some posters for them and then quit in disgust).

then they decided to hire me to do a tour logo and a logo for the great went. i worked up designs and they loved everything. they wanted it all, but then wouldn't meet my asking price (which if i remember was like around $900 for both). they thought i was too expensive (like they weren't going to make a million of licensing my work to merch people). so, they dumped me.

eventually their stuff hit the streets and their tour logo (in particular. i never saw what that year's great went logo looked like) looked so much like my design, that i assume they took my sketches to somebody else to finish out and then they (whoever they were - again the authorship was 'bought' by phish, so they remain anonymous) simply did their take on my sketch. so, they basically got it for free, anyway.

i hate coprorate music.

  ed's doing just fine. he's become the 'corporate' illustaion style for nordstrom, as well as picking up work all over. his stuff is regularly in the new yorker. however, back when he first started out, he (miraculaously) was picked up as the sales style for nieman marcus. within 2 years of adopting this new career, he was making around 350 G's a year (that's $350,000, folks).

his career was so spectacularly meteoric that i sort of list him among the small handful of geeks that actually got rich out of the 'grunge' scene. he was sort of the 'nirvana' of illustrators.
