That true IF you only refer to the stereotype. You can fit a band AND push their imagery forward.

There seems to be this idea perpetuated by experimentalism that anything goes.
Give me EXPLORATORY art any day of the week. Guys like Brian Wilson and The Beatles are exploratory. They can find ways to advance a medium USING the medium.
Anyone can decide to go completely off script and make completely obtuse work and say "well its all subjective" if met with disapproval.

I think thats what youre seeing around here lately with the "doodle" style. You are either just fatigued from seeing artwork all the time and find the primitivism refreshing, or youre so worried about the subjective nature of art that you dont want to be behind the curve at all.

Agian, Im an SP fan, but I find this particular piece self indulgent. Again, if Im wrong, tell me WHY Im wrong.

  Sorry. This doesnt fit at all.

The rationale in the past has been that SP's look was representative of "Noise Rock", which I think is something of a lazy catch-all term anyway.
QOTSA are not noise rock in the slightest, yet the imagery remains the same.

I like that SP's trying to move the art of poster desing forward, and some of their stuff I find incredibly compelling, but (and this is just one man's opinion here - I have to be completely honest) a piece like this makes me question if the bands themselves are an afterthought to their artistic agenda.

Now this is an honest viewpoint. Im not trying to start shit. If Im wrong then show me Im wrong. DOnt just start throwing shit telling me my work sucks or is "boring" or whatever, because I dont consider myself to be a great artist to begin with and that stuff gets us nowhere besides.

But I see work on here all the time that hasnt anything at all to do with the acts they are supposed to represent. And often everyone gets so wrapped up in "brushstrokes" and technique that these issues never REALLY get addressed. And theres definitely a certain cadre of "name" designers that get away with it far more often.

Just because something is different and has never been done before doenst necessarliy make it a good thing.

Again, if Im wrong, then lets discuss that. A flamewar gets us nowhere and if my views are off-base, Id like to know how.

  Actually, Ive been a hardcore VICE fan for years and I think this fits perfectly.

Altho, if you ever do another one for them, consider using some DOs & DONTs. That would be righteous.

Great posta.

  This went over really well this weekend.
I guess they sold out before alot of peeps could get em and Ive been getting emails all week from places as far away as Brazil wanting copies.

Ya know, Ive only been a poster designer for like 5 months now, but this is alot of fun.

  I love this look.
Extra points for using ACTUAL Helvetica.

The next poseurmotherfucker I see using Arial cause they dont see the difference is gonna get cockpunched till blood comes out o' da ears.
