corretcion - it was not a film poster. it was an admat i clipped when i was 12 years old. i sent it to something weird and they published it in their catalog. sinister cinema published it, too. it came out of the tacoma news tribune in the mid sixties and i've always loved it. it was 2" x 3". when i say i re-drew it, i'm not kidding around. my drawing happens to look just like that ad! amazing, huh? instead of drawing a kitty cat i drew an old monster movie ad. go figger.
you do not nderstand what i'm talking about, do you?
now, please explain what this poster has to do with the garbo image, the findlay image, the arbus image, the tery jones image, or the robert johnson poster? is mine the same as theirs? if so, how? do you see anything not similar? or do you only see a picture?
it's been redrawn somewhat - about 30% maybe. it's been blown out on xerox and relettered to look the part. i chose it because it was halloween with dead moon and they ARE the living intense dead. and i've always loved this image - which i believe was by ron cobb (if jermaine had ever bothered to read any of my posts on this poster). furthermore, i see this poster as a failure, because the image is so directly taken - it wasn't altered enough to fit my criteria. so, i have rejected this poster as little more than an exercise, not my 'real' work.
now, exactly how does this poster relate to that greta garbo image, that virgil findlay image. that diane arbus image or even that robert johnson poster?
jermaine - after reading your last post, i guess you just want to 'win the fight' and not discuss anything. you think that pointing out a percieved (alas, misunderstood) hypocrisy on my part makes you the moral superior righteous dude you always strive to be. well, forget it. the point here is to talk openy about the crap on this site, not me. but if you want i can easily turn the discussion into an attack on you if you want. it's easy. is that what you want. martyrdom?
what i'm doing with these comments on various posters (and on my own thanks to your little attck) is simply to kick start a discussion. there is a lot of copyright violation, a lot of theft, a lot of fraud, a lot of plagarism, a lot of styleistic copycatting, a lot of prifiteering, a lot of truly bad stuff on this site masquerading as "art" by "artists". i think it's time we all discuss this. like i said, i ofetn look at this site and start laughing at the ludicrousness of it. and many of you have told me the same thing. many of you have privately told me that they think there's a lot of ripping going on here on many many levels. and i mean a LOT of you have privately told me these same things, but don't have the guts to say it on site.
so, i guess i get to be the asshole again and force a talk? or can you folks start to be honest here?
