nocturn - check yer attitude at the door. yer poster stinks, whether you approve of max's work of not. this poster is dreadful 'designerly' crap. trust me, i know what i'm talking about. so, before you start getting all uppity about the sheer brilliance of your work, i just want you to know that most some of us have no respect for it at all, ok?
vague threats? huh? am i threatening anybody? whatyoosay?
look, the 'skull' was a product of the world news' art department - an illustration. there have been long thread debates about the merits of taking somebody else's illustrations without permission before and most of you find it a bad thing. combine that with the idea that this illustration was developed and produced by a very large corporation with a staff of lawyers well versed in litigation (the world news fr'chissake. they know about lawsuits) and you have a recipe for disaster. that's all i'm saying. if you want to be rebelious and flip off an outfit like that, more power to ya. but you also have to be adult enough to take the punishment if yer caught. do the crime, pay the time, ya know? this stuff doesn't exist in a total vacuum.
chuckles - go research dan o'neill. he's about as good an example as i can think of. i know smaller/seattle cases, too.
