mr frumpy* i'm actually a fan of eva's work but that work became suspect when she said "yeah it was taken from an old porno mag ive got here at home, just traced it then re worked it to the cartoony style. ". i know it's a lengthy debate on what is 'theft' but just be honest on what the soarce is.
devilpig* yea, bizarre how two artists can see the same image in an obscure 60's porno mag and come up w/ the same design. only one problem........ it wasn't from a mag! shane took the photo himself of a friend.
thanks guys*... my wife asks that you quit feeding my ego tho. she's getting a little sick of me running around the apartment in my under-oos screaming 'i am invinceable'.
ok, in all seriousness, thank you all. it really means alot to get these kinds of compliments from people i deeply admire.
*the scrojo-coop thing*
i kno that there are definetely mixed feelings about coop here but, for the record, i am a huge fan and admirer of his. i have no idea what the man is like personally but his art has had a huge influence on me. his understanding of anatomy and weight distribution ( no pun) are things i still aspire to. i also admire the fact that he went forward and did the 'biggie' girls that he wanted when there had to be commercial pressure to keep pumping out the 'ideal devil-girls'. not exactly my taste but i know he's made el negro fantastico very happy.
*the book of scrojo*
damn.....obviously i'd be beyond stoked to have a book. i do have '85' pieces but i think i'd want to wait a few months and try and knock out some really top-notch posters. even tho i've been doing flyers since '86 i think it's only been since january that i hit my stride. plus i'd like to try and get some cd covers under my belt as well. *frank* if you have any connection i'd be really greatful ( not suck hairy-butt greatful but pretty damn close) if you could pass on my email and a good word.
thanks hampton* the dan clowes influence isn't too obvious.... is it? this is one of the 'old' belly up posters i picked up this week for 'the art of the b.u.t' exibit. some really scarey stuff. i'll try and post more of my 'dirty little secrets' later this week.
