Check out what I found on my semi retired dope tray. Sorry it's a dirty scan. Got some "stuff" on it but it's been there laminated and scraping for a few years. This was my first attempt at promoting a rock show back in 89 or 90. An old buddy of mine did this with me. What a rip off we were:
Yep '99. Can you beleive it? You asked me if I knew any clubs needing work and I didn't have a clue. I had no idea this would get here. I was happy with the first nice comment from Nolen and woulda stayed that way if that's all I ever saw for any of it. Seriously nice to see our stuff is liked. We really try.
I think my work has gotten better as a direct result of being on Gigposters. Prior to this I had a handful of people seeing my/our stuff and only had Jeff K and Art to compare my personal style to. Figuring I'll never catch those guys I kinda just did what I could bang out the quickest and still not suck too bad. Now after seeing Methane, AA, Lure, Thomas Scott....the list goes on, I am driven to keep getting better. My own partners kick my ass all the time so I got it coming both directions. It's a GOOD pressure though. Makes me think like I never have, makes me look harder for the original concept.
Stuff I heard Art lecture on about creating out of multiple sources to have your own was really eye opening. I don't have patience to do a sweet vine poster like Kozik or Illo like Jermaine. I'll always have the highest respect for that skill and focus. Just not my current style. Maybe someday, I gots plenty in my bean. It's too easy to swipe a pic , obscure or not, and make it new. This site and this level of exposure to crit is simply driving me to try harder. We'll see. Like I said before I feel I have a long ways to go and all the kind words are really inspiring. Even if it's lousy old Frank... :-p
Yep. I'm the top dude their now. Gimmie a call and I'll see what all we can palaver about. Jason is a WHIZ on Apple's AND PCs too. You'd do good to get him over for some hook ups. When he's back I'll see if me, Clay and Paul and the little missues can make a weekend down sometime and catch up/introduce the rest of the gang to ya.
