Hmmm... I just finished my blue cheer poster. THey seemed pretty good when I saw them in Chicago. When Dickie played the parkside two years ago it was basically just a lot of blues stuff, not really my thing.
I understand what it is supposed to look like but I think it fails -- I'll assume that the illustration is found and maybe that's why the text is thrown into a big box at the top -- but it just doesn't fit that well together. The illustration has great balance and compostion and is rendered very well and then the text is just thrown on ad an afterthought. It's not very dynamic.
If you look at vinatge comic books that this is trying to look like, the text is more integrated into the design, not just boxed and stacked.
