"Perhaps next time I'm bent double over my girlfriend and about to commence in the act of the creation of the 'beast with 2 backs' I could give you a call and you could tell me how I should best approach that too?"
"Defending conceptual thought with regard to a poster for a band is about the most egotistical, big headed thing I can imagine. "
Well, if you can pull off what a band conveys well visually ,then you're a good designer. Thats what Graphic design is, VISUAL communtication.
