I'm not sure but i think it says Richie loves sausage. But it mentions nothing of the pork variety. I see hints of Castro as the dragonfly wings resemble a double dick duster ala David Hodo 1978. here's your reference:
Perkins nailed it. None of the bands are metal. They are all friends of mine and it was a big joke all around. When I took the picture I took it just to make a poster like this for fun. The nose print said "devil head" to me right away.
I grew up listening to nothing but metal so I know it plenty good but it's not my design style at all. Art is right though you can't fake things very well at all if you don't really know the culture. Even then it ain't always easy to pull it off right. This one was just for fun. The fake metal comment was specifically for my good friends over at Wrecking Crew. Two of them know metal the other is a phoney. :P
this is my fake metal poster. that little devil dude is actually a photo. Jeff Kliensmith's dog, Lucy, came hauling ass into our room when we were in Seattle and did a faceplant right on the bed spread. That is the wet mark it left. Un altered except for the heavy black distress line running through it. That's a photo of the paneling in my shop. The nostrils/eyes, creepy mouth/teeth thing and little horns are straight off the photo.
Thanks ev erybody. this is kind of a crappy pic. it's brighter in person. the whites are actually white. It's about 19 x 25 or so. The type is much easier to see in person. I was stoked to do a Cheap Trick poster but it turned out to be one of the worst shows ever. Too much new stuff that just doesn't have what songs like "Southern Girls" or "He's a Whore" have going for them. The show the year before was awesome but this was lame...
Richie you would have still liked it. They played "The Flame"
