Thanks. I don't know Kley but I'll look it up. The thig about a lot of these is all the fine print that you can't see. Around the outside of this one it tells the story of my personal history with Sparklehorse and varnaline, the bands on the bill. The drawing and the text come from a blending of the tastes and methods that I like about the bands, and particularly the songwriters Mark Linkous and Anders Parker. I have no idea why I had those two bottom text blocks touching eachother but I have hated that part ever since. It's a cool poster in person. He's been stabbed in the back with a sparrow wrapped in twine.
What's funny about this one is that i recently found out that Stephen used to live across the street from Tom Laughlin and would wear that famous hat around his backyard pretending to fight for the right's of the indians and Mr. Laughlin would chase him around acting like a crazy indian. Weird and ironic. huh?
you know. i have no space for screening. I am kind of interested but my posters are usually done for poles and windows, and the show runs about a hundred that go up then disappear forever. actual prints number probably less than ten in existence for any one design. I'd like to do solor some time but i don't really want to screen them myself right now. perhaps when i have some time and space?
thanks everyone. Gerald is the man. the lonliest heartbreaker around. this was for a small gig and needed a stark intimacy. It's how he makes me feel when he croons the broken heart tunes. buy his records, please.
