thanks guys* this is a bit of a cop-out tho. i only had a half-hour to put this together so i grabbed an old design about corperate monopolies ( than spent about two hours trying to justify the image......"alvin has walked the tightrope of mainstream/corperate without contridicting his strong roots...blah blah blah"). oh well. monkey nuts. it works as a strong image that leads the focus to the artist's name.
thanks guys* i'm glad you like. i'm definetley happy with the way this turned out ( minimalist copy is fun!). the show sold out before the poster hit the streets but.....they are still going up ( " hey kids! look what you missed. ).
UPDATE* ...i just read in the local weekly that 'common' ( the rap-star) is refering to himself as 'common sense' on national tv ( the dave chappel show ) even tho he agreed not to in an out-of-court settlement with the band.
...not sure what's gonna happen on a legal front ( and, outside morbid/sadistic curiosity, don't care ) but........
it actually seems like 'the band' is getting sckrewed over in this one. jmho.
fuck you, you beautiful bastard! i've been working on this same concept for months but haven't been able to pull it off. colors, layout...fuck, everything is beautiful. i quit. the only thing that i was tinking different tho was to have the headliner in the mirror ( reversed ) in blood or lipstick ( your pick ).
