art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i love these incredibly technical analysis of my posters. it's so stupid and soooo cute!
this is a not-very -clever cop of an old sleaze-movie ad for a film called 'she done him wrong'. i tore it apart and redesigned it with my own hand-lettering and some hand-drawn type. it's all xeroxed and collaged and touched up with felt pens. the color is just an amberlithe overlay (with a color split indicated and where the break should be). i did the whole thing (film included) on my xerox machine in a few hours.
because it's too direct a cop,i don't connsider this a very good poster (of me) and seldom show it to anybody. when i did this in the mid-nineties, i never thought anybody would ever see it beyond a few windows and poles in las vegas. the idea that a crummy poster like this would survive it's usage was actually not a consideration when it was made. i thought it would get immediately forgotten. it kinda shows an interesting aspect of posters - the fact that they survive initial advertising function and go on to exist as a cultural articfact.

kozikSend kozik a message :   if you somehow do it in illustaretor ake sure to select 'overprint fill and stroke' to get the true weird effect.   2002-11-02 11:52:28
scrojoSend scrojo a message :   cool, thanks frank* i may even have a modified way to do it for illustrator. not sure. will see.   2002-11-02 11:48:58
kozikSend kozik a message :   Ok....
1. do your black line work and your text in illustrator.
save it as an eps at 100% size
open it in photoshop drop it in convert it to cmyk.
color it not use any black in the colors.
go to the black channel and remove all the black
you'll just have the colors...then selact the whole thing(you might have to do it in pieces) and
use the color halftone filter(it's under 'pixellate' for the whole thing. I would set it somewhere between 4 and 6 pixels on it's setting. will look like hell on the monitor but real cool in real life
once the filter is done, open a new layer and re-place the black linework and then flatten the whole thing.
it'll look like real crappy printing.
you can even go into the individual channels and like slightly nudge them to make it even sloppier looking.

scrojoSend scrojo a message :   frank* if you get a chance i'd dig to kno your 'color halftone' process. i got a los lobos poster coming up that it would be perfect for.   2002-11-02 11:26:28
kozikSend kozik a message :   I got pretty good at using the color halftone filters to make cmyk silkscreens that looked very 'Mexican Cheapo printing'.....slightly of register and shit.   2002-11-02 11:16:05
scrojoSend scrojo a message :   ...thinking about it, i need to get back to doing some 'xerox-monstrocities'. i used to kno every copier in town and the different effects you could pull off (.....damn computers).   2002-11-02 11:11:59
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   You can get results similar to a letterpress with...photoshop! Bwahahahaha   2002-11-02 11:11:50
kozikSend kozik a message :   I have a shitload of Art's posters and the deal is that they are all offsett pretty much. So..they do not look that 'degraded' in real life, rather slick looking actually.
Too bad he didnt own a letterpress cause then all his effort would have made more sense.

scrojoSend scrojo a message :   godisold* from what little i kno of chantry i'd guess this was done on a copier and not in photoshop. i always feel that the 'copy filter' gives things too much a uniformed look and you miss out on some great 'devine-accidents'. either way, great poster.   2002-11-02 11:05:30
