I still thin this poster is very jermaine. Although the backgound and lettering is not his norm, it still looks like his stuff.
uses very similar colours.
Man I hope my comments sells another poster.!!!
The only thing I see close to Leia is the subject matter. Leia has more saturated colours and more detail in here sketches.
I just did a Sigur Ros poster. you guys will hate it. It's so stark you can barely see the design. Artsy fartsy...
I'm too punk to sell my posters.
I didn't realize we were supposed to turn AJ off from screen printing. Shit we had a ton of screens to be reclained. He could have gotten some real fun work experience!
lol, poor guy.
He thinks he wants to be a printer/designer.... I thought sending him to Babylon and after working here that he might see that we're all just a bunch of geeks.... but I think he is ever more entralled by it after being tortured by you and yer crew!
I'm apparently the guy who first brought up the Bell influence. I'll still think so.
Jermaine was saying to me her work is so GREAT becuase they all have the slice of life, snapshot feel to them. Impressonist. I think that's what he was shooting for, and he nailed it.
That's all. Not really layout or text or even drawing style. it was the feeling behind the image that made me think of Leia's work.
I love this one!!
so now anytime any of us draw children or day-to-day occurences we will be imitating Leia? don't get me wrong, the girl's stuff is amazing and there are certainly worse influences to have but these sorts of images have been done by many people and many more (though not by me, i do sexist half-naked girls sexclusivley :wink:)
after you get over the shock of the colors this thing is all Jermaine.
Nothing in this reminds me of Leia's work.
Anyone familiar with Jermaine's body of work would probably agree. I see similarities to posters he has done in the past, maybe with a slightly more conservative pallette this time.
mike - oh no, dont get me wrong. i know that's just the way it is, and im not fighting it. everyone has an opinion, some people arent going to like mine. im fine with that. whatevz.
ya know, you asked me for a favor, and i was kind enough to accomidate you. what you find so insult-worthy of a guy from the midwest having hand lotion in his backpack baffles me. i hope you are not a dick to everyone that helps you out.
"the sigur ros lettering on this reminds me of the lettering from "friends." ....
yes. true. This poster is therefore obviously influenced by the NBC hit "Friends". This Leia Bell thing is totally misguided. Who's Jermaine? And why does that "philaarts" guy keep posting such inflammatory statements?
Jeeezus. Take it easy everyone.
It IS totally obvious that there are similarities to Leia's work in this. And there's nothing wrong with that. Whether it was intentional or not, well, who knows? And it really doesn't matter.
Kevin is a good guy. Give em' a break. I don't think he's trying to hurt anyone. He sure does know what buttons to push to set people off doesn't he? Sorta fun...
People don't really appreciate your help unless they've asked for it. So leave it to the people being discussed to talk about it... or not.
All you're doing right now is helping sell this poster.
If that's your plan, then do the same for me. I'll give you 20% of the sale.
i beg to differ. color choices, content, lettering, layout. all pretty similar if you ask me. i wasnt the only one that noticed. obviously jemaine's technique in regards to how he draws is different, but to say that there is no apparently link here ... well, thats just ignorant.
the target joke, i was expecting you to hold onto that for later. youre slipping goodtimes...
This drawing is SO Jermaine. Look at the line work and line shading. Clearly Jermaine. This is exactly what I was spouting out about when I was not to hot on the painting posters. He's taking what was awesome about his old work and incorporating it into a new style. It's good shit.
You didn't leave a tip Kevin. Next time they'll spitt in your food.
I dont think so 'kevin jones'. Just read on his website that part 4 of the teddy bear stoy is coming next month! :)
I agree with 'Frumpy'. The layout here reminds me of Leia Bell but overall this piece is so Jermaine. Its great how he retains a style even though its so different. Great work!
This is nice, but wheres the 72 ?
If you changed the background,it would be very obvious its a jermaine poster. Look at the way hes drawn the kids, Its his style through n through. Its the choice of colours and layout style that makes it so different to his other usual stuff. This is great man.
Knowing this is Jermaine though Shawny, it puts this in a whole different category. Hes already known for a style for years, but his versatility as of late is just staggering. To me its just a whole seperate level of artist going on here.
the sigur ros lettering on this reminds me of the lettering from "friends."
as far as i'm concerned, more people should be influenced by leia! i don't know if anyone will be able to match her, but hey, it'll probably bring out some pretty cool posters.
I actually thought this was one of Leia's from the thumbnail...I've been fooled! :D
Definitely appropriate for Sigur Ros' vibe. Have any of y'all seen the vid that Floria Sigisimondi(JSBX, Bowie, M. Manson)did for them? Chilling.
