i'm not defending anyone, and shouldn't be getting involved, but i don't really consider gene's post "don't ask don't tell" joke homophobic. calling someone gay - when did that become homophobic? especially when we all know it was a joke, even if you don't think its funny. if someone says "you're gay, i hate you because of it." that's homophobic. i could have missed earlier conversations, but i just thought i'd point this out. but i do think geneswig is an asshole, albeit a likeable one. so that's just, like, my opinion, and i'll add one of these to show how harmless i am: :-D
is this Shepard Fairey influenced, or just fairey rip off? i do like the poster, but there are a few things that are pretty much trademark Obey Giant stuff (stars on foreheads, dark red on lighter red image in background, pretty much everything on this piece) - it just doesn't ad up. maybe its an homage? i find it hard to spot those suckers amidst the slew of ripoff imitations of what's cool at the moment. but i'll give the artist the benefit, its probably an homage. has to be. i'm rambling, just woke up, sorry.
i'm curious of the artists motives, or what her thoughts are on this. was it done seriously, or with humorous intentions? i see quite a bit of hand drawn sketches in magazines today, kinda the "drawing on peachies during class" stuff. but i dont know if this is part of that movement or just an honest poster, which i respect. am i making any sense?
nolen >about the logo, i designed gracelands logo, but its just ITC Machine run through the copier a couple times to give it that young punk street appeal. and they like all their posters to have the same logo and border, which actually seems to be a good idea, though a little constricting.
the image is just a sketchbook image, not that amazing thumbnail size, but blow it up to 11x17 and wow. still not that amazing. but i definitely hear grrrrrr. although the bulge in the underpants repels me.
yep, the font is blinkers, though i couldn't remember what it was called at first. a cool font that i've used once, i don't think i've used it since. apparently if it doesn't scream in huge bold letters, the venues don't like it. or at least mine don't. but i've got my health, so i won't complain..
