"The thing that a lot of you designery types will never understand is that the guy who made this poster (again from soup to nuts) is the most authentic, DIY, genuine cool motherfuckers to ever walk the earth. "
Noones disputing that.
But that has nothing to do with that being a text treatment that brings down the whole piece.
You can have you little played out Designer vs Illustrator bullshit argument all day long and pump up your feelings of self-satisfaction. Dont give a shit.
That text treatment sucks and it has a detrimental effect on the piece.
The irony of your ridiculous argument is that YOU think I should take into consideration what a great guy this artist is supposed to be when jusdging this piece WHILE AT THE SAME TIME imagining some stereotype of who IM supposed to be and responding to that.
