Electric Frankenstein Poster - Noiseville - Jim Gibson

  oh, it's just that clay wouldn't let jamie post the backside of that one hempfest poster becuase he said it wasn't a gigposter. them's the rules. so, now, whenever i see a non-gigposter posted it 'irks' me a tad. no big deal. most of the time i just ignore them, but sometimes i point it out.

harmless joshing. sorta like pounding baby chicks with hammers, ya know? jes' fun.

  not that o know of. besides, clay, this site is peppered with non-gigposters that slip through. i've found ads, magazine covers, backstage passes and even theater posters. no big deal.

Ze Whiz Kidz Poster - Exotic Paradise Room, Seattle - Gorilla Rose

  this is a great example of what i was talking about. in seattle in the very early seventies (72? 73?) there were these classic diy cut and paste punk posters popping up all over advertising ze whiz kidz, which was a gay/straight/performance/rock/theater/glam/drag/music/video/madness thing that was spiritually headed up by tomata du plenty and gorilla rose. many many later reknowned folks were involved in this weird scene. and, these were the first true classic 'punk' posters i've ever encountered (that weren't just 'date/time/place with photo' stuff). gorilla and tomata went to ny in tabout 73 and worked with the harlettes and stiletto and the dolls and a bunch of others. they were involved with cbgb's at the very beginning. they formed a band and moved back to seattle (called the tupperwares) and began seattle's first true punk rock shows (about 75?) with posters and everything. they all brian jones haircuts, leather motorcycle jackets and sang iggy songs. then they gave up on seattle and moved to la and became the screamers.

early nw punk rock history. tomata, in particular, was an extremely important dude.

C Average Poster - Olympia World News, Olympia

  this cartoon character you see on a lot of olympia's postering comes from a huge general discount store called 'yardbird's'. they had this guy pictured all over the entire southern half of washington state. when i was a little kid they had these 'yarbird' figures made out of stovepipe and rebar carrying signs (yardbirds is 'x' miles thataway) peppered all over the northwest. they went out of business about 5 years ago.

Sappy Bell Poster - The HiFi Club - Jeff Gaither

  nothing wrong with using type (not 'fonts'). the trick is to use the PERSONALITY of the typeface to re-inforce what you are saying. that's why there are so many different designs, they all have function (to some extent. a lot being designed today are just decorative). all these things were made to be used and solve distinct problems. fo rinstance 'century schoolbook' was designed to be used in schoolbook readers so kids can easily read and recognize the letterforms. it can be easily read at regular weight set very simply in large blocks of text. not an accident, not decoration. function. that's why they called it 'century schoolbook" (the 'century' part was kind of a clever comment on when it was designed - around 1900).

hand lettering carries the personality of the ilustrator (in these cases) and therfore enforces the image stylistically. so, your hand drawn lettering looks great with yer images. the type you use does not compliment or reinforce. it tends to clash.

end of lesson.
