frank, i'm not talking about this poster, i was talking about another moscosso i love - annabella's butterfly dance. i've studied it for years and never quite figured it out. there's always an angle to it that ruins my guess. i've learned a huge amount from studying moscosso's poster work.
over the years i've sold off most of my old psych poster collection (i must have had them all at one point or another), but i still have this one. it still blows me away. i also am extrmely fond of 'annabella's butterfly dance.' that one still befuddles me. exactly what was the printing order, and how did he pull that off with only a stat camera and a pen?
piemel - don't look at it as a picture or an image or a drawing. look at it as a design. look at it as a printing process with attitude. think of the immediacy of it's statement and impact. think of it's attitude. think of it's clash.
maybe you shouldn't think about it at all - just respond. the fact you don't like it is an enormous clue as to what's going on with this poster. think about it for awhile.
