Seems all the new stuff have stories behind them. This is a photo of our hedgehog, Wingnut, we used to have. If you've ever had a hedgehog you know you can't really pick them up. They hiss and jump around flaring their needles. So we had these leather gloves around so we could get him out and play with him. That's the photo up top. Yes it's retarded...
This final isn't the way I originally had it in my bean and I didn't get it to come out exactly like I had wanted. That is true so in that sense it's not my best stuff. I think my idea of contrasting the two is pretty strong but I'm also not completely happy with the execution. with this damn Flatstock thing coming up and all the other work I had to get to a stopping point on this to get it to press and this is the point. I hope to make the print a little more compelling through some fancy overlays and transparencies. Jpegs rarely look as good as a print. So Art makes some good points that at the same time don't have to be construed as "this poster sucks." It could use a little more time on it, just don't have the time is all.
thanks Charlie. The Carousel Lounge is a tiny hole in the wall place right by my house. They started having bands there recently and it gets packed. It's bring your own bottle and they sell set ups. Right next to a liqour store. Been there for years and has this circus theme with a carousel behind the bar. This image was composited off photos I took of these old condom machines in their bathroom. Talk about being a creep with a camera in the men's room.
There ya go goodtimes I opened that door wide for ya. Have fun with it..
Dang! thanks Mike. I'm not crazy about the font but I wanted to contrast burlesque and stag films (old porn) with computer downloads and creepy personal ads (new porn) The screen seemed the best place for the show info and that font made the best sense.
