Tesla Poster - Ogden Theatre, Denver - Mark Rogal

  this is a photo of tesla's giant coil tower that he used to try to charge the atmosphere. his theories said that we could have free electricity from the atmosphere, simple by locking on to it. imagine electrical machinery that works without batteries or even without plugging it in to a circuit. it's actually possible, but the empowered interests don't approve because you can't centrally control the money and distribution (or so the story goes). when tesla died, the contents of his safe vanished mysteriously. his only notes.

when he powered up this item on this poster, it coincided with the tongusta explosion. many teslas-ites think it was the cause.

Strokes Poster - Ryman Auditorium, Nashville - Hatch Show Print
art chantrySend art chantry a message 2008-02-26 11:26:07
  the strokes is a band only of interest to new york. the rest of the country saw versions of the strokes a million times over the last 40 years. garage rock is still considered "new" only in new york city. they never had a garage scene. and the stokes are just so tired sounding out of the gate.

the reason the stokes are selling is because new york city's hype machine is turned on full bore to the local garage band, even thought it's a good 20 years behind the rest of the country.

State Radio Poster - Bottletree, Birmingham - Zach Hobbs

  the grid and the hard black bar (that has the headline in it) save yer ass, though. without that stuff there to create the contrast, you'd only have the paper edge to act as an anchor to the image and the type. it CAN work, but you really will have to use that paper edge as an anchor instead - like those old psych posters. the designs on 60's posters were very very centralized and balanced and played viscously off the edge (unconsciously).

so, observe and learn. if it works, figger out WHY. if it doesn't work - also figger out WHY. it's all tools.

  zach -

the "top" is wonky? ya really think that?

maybe it's because you used a script "drawn" typeface for the headline. it clashes with the "drawn" image. the two drawings sitting side by side cancel each other out - like two piece of camo.

try to use your head to picture a hardass block letter typeface in there instead and you'll realize how important contrasting styles are to creative visibility and impact. it's a sort of secret of graphic design.

Butterflies Poster - Nightlight, Chapel Hill - Joe Norkus

  dan -

huh. i didn't know it was legal, now. maybe it was all along. i dunno. but, it sure isn't a good defense in court. go ask negativeland.

also, if you notice - that is a drawing of uncle mick. not a photo. in fact, it's a rather well done portrait of our favorite peter pan. so, in a rather unimaginative way, the artist HAS "made it his own". he's just not a very IMAGINATIVE artist. we often call unimaginative art, "bad" art.

there is plenty of room here on good ol' gp for BAD artsists, ya know?
