melblohm* i think what's getting to people is that the poster seems to be based mostly on the pun " special sauce " and not something that is appropriate for the band. nothing wrong with offending people......... just make sure the offense matches the act.
sweet aunt jemima! rulin' mark! great image, reminds me a bit of the old ray-o-vac logo ( but beautifully more demented ). one bitch tho...... whats up with the text at the bottom? why repeat the band name??
perkins is on it ( good man billy ). wether this IS or ISN'T like jay's stuff is kinda a moot point....... there are alot of people who PERCIEVE it to be ryan-esque. so the choice is up to you chris. if you are cool with the comparison then continue on track if not, time to switch gears. either way i hope you keep contributing, great stuff.
as for the critics......... one of the absolute essentials to being a working ( and consistently improving ) artist is to know how to take critisism. it's nice to get a bit of praise but the real meat is in a bad revue. it's either acurate and motivation/lesson to improve or so far off the mark that it's good for a laugh. one of the things i've allways dug about this site is the fact that it is blunt and i've gotten more than a few of those crits here...... usually from people i consider friends.
