cool then (not that it's any of my business, really).
i haven't really walked around seattle much in the last year. i was really impressed at the quality of the telephone pole posters that i saw when i was walking around georgetown yesterday. over the last couple of years, there have been one or two guys making really great telephone pole stuff in seattle, but not more than that. right now there's TONS of cool poster artsists all over. an explosion. love it.
carlos, i'll try to look for one of yours to steal. i like them better when they have creosote stains and staple holes and rain wrinkles. it's the only way to know they were authentic posters (aka "danced").
seripop in the good ol' days. back when they were still trying to teach themselves how to do this stuff. remember when they didn't have a clue how to do a poster? look at them now! they're design superstars. they owe it all to gigposters.
i think of them as our talented little children.
"oh, honey! look at them now! they can ride the bicycle without the training wheels"
do these little scrappy )but beautiful) posters actually get used? i mean, you showed me your amazing sketch book and in it i saw the originals for a few of these things. they are great, really wonderful. but, do they actually get used on telephone poles as advertising or as swag or anything? i guess what i'm asking is - do these beautiful little things only exist in your sketchbook?
this is actually a small little 4x5 flyer/handbill. st. louis (where this is from) never really developed much of a punk scene. they're still trying to figure it out. this is from a couple of years ago. i thought it was a sweet and weird thing to see on a telephone pole in 2004.
