i had opportunity to have several of the artists sign a copy of that poster - roth, williams, etc. - but didn't. i've never been one to gather autographs. but still, i love the idea that roth signed it. he and i worked on a couple of projects that resulted in his "rediscovery" in the early 80's. a long story, but a story i'm very proud to have been a part of.
another bad repro. the grey area is silver metallic ink and the orange area is dayglo. this is one of my obscene posters. it's always been one of my most popular posters among hipsters, but when i put one on ebay recently it sold poorly. i guess you just have to see it in real life.
i'll put one up on ebay in awhile. if you want my posters, that's the only way to get them. that is unless you have other connections. i sure don't.
this is a bad reproduction. the 'black area' actually has a dark blue xerox texture in it, so it looks like shadow. not shadows of anything in particular, just the color of a shadow (which is blue/black, not black.)
whenever i was asked to do a fastbacks poster, i always put them into a cartoon scenario, because they've sorta become cartoons. most of the old seattle bands have become cartoons. sort of a flat brightly colored parody of themselves. not subtle.
the fastbacks didn't like them and i never did any more.
jacob moved to portland and went domestic. but lately he's been back at the old evil emp working on a "history of nw rock posters since '75" show. i'm helping him some, so's mike king and buncha others. seems i'm the only one old enough anymore to know who did what poster. sad.
certainly nobody outside of jacob knows what's in that collection anymore. sad, and stupid.
