piemelSend piemel a message :   shit, how cool would it be to do a similar project again but a nation wide series... say one mag each for Seattle, Austin, SF, etc. Done of cheap newsprint and in an edition of say 1000 each. Put them around coffee shops and see what happens.
How much would it cost to run such an edition of cheap B&W newsprint these days? Any ballpark numbers?

i started the thing as a sort of protest against the new poster ban in seattle (back in 94). the challenge was for people to hang pages from the zine on telephone poles, because they weren't POSTER, they were MAGAZINE PAGES (not that the law would understand, but it was a loophole). the way it turned out was that collectors snapped them up and nobody ever saw them much. after about five issues , the club decided that spending the $200 a month on the printing costs (1000 copies copies $200 was too much?) they dumped the idea. too bad, i had jacob lawrence lined up to do one for the next month.
money changes everything.

stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   thanks for the info Art. It's a pretty great series. We should talk a club down here into fronting something like that. We have plenty of poster makers...   2004-01-10 11:09:14
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   geoff -
you have the very first one, which is also the rarest. the initial run was 1/2 the size of the next issue and then it was increased again after that. there were five issues of that poster 'zine thing. also, subsequent issues had more posters in them than the first one, ususally a whole signature more. one of them had twice as many as the first one. so, you got a good'n. i have only two copies of that one (because moe only gave me five). i guess jeffy has a big stack of them somewhere, though.

stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   Hey Art, How many MOE papers were made? I have the one with the Built To Spill Manson poster, Killdozer etc. and all the ones that were in it. This one wasn't part of that edition..   2004-01-10 10:31:45
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   there was a VERY small run made for posting, but i never got any of them. if you want to find a copy of the "non-newsprint' poater, i wish you luck. lord knows i have never gotten my hands on any. moe was real bad about that stuff. i was often lucky to get a single copy of one of my posters for them. moe taught me to get my samples at the prnter and not from the client.   2004-01-10 09:41:32
EdGossageSend EdGossage a message :   art were these turned into posters at all or just in the newspaper? I absolutely love this, and would really like to hang it on my wall if you have a copy you were willing to sell, or could direct me to a place where i could find a copy.   2004-01-10 09:13:30

piemelSend piemel a message :   8ball... before you try to slam somebody and methodically bash each and every poster maybe you should spend a few minutes to read the comments in this thread... the band and venue info is all on this poster (in the speedlines)...
you made the same mistake with the 'ed drawing' poster....
it doesnt look good (your relentless bashing that is, the poster is great)
i better stop before I get accused of being a PR man again :)

8ballSend 8ball a message :   Not a "gig" poster. The bands? The date? The venue?
Also, this is a blantant rip-off! Doesn't everyone know the TRUE art comes from the soul? The pretentiousness of this artist knows no bounds!

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the reason i took this image was i that hand coming out of his ass. it reminded me of 'alien'.
perhaps "alien 6: the world series."

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   ok, here's the ugly truth.
at the time i was cranking out about 3 posters a day. this was a poster i got stuck doing (i didn't really care about these bands at all) so, i slammed it out in about 5 minutes. remember, at the time these were being printed in "an underground poster newspaper" and not being street posted (much) since street posting had just been illegalized. and, because these were always being looked at up close in the viewers hands, and not from a distance like normal poster, jeff and i were having fun trying to make tiny type.
so, i grabbed this image from an old newspaper and typed out the type on an old underwood typewriter i had sitting around and pasted the copy into a blownup xerox (as 'speed' lines).
that's it. it's a readymde.
total bullshit for the people.
  2003-04-17 08:42:10
goad74Send goad74 a message :   So Art, can you break this one down for me? What part of it is you and what part of it is the unknown artist? I'm curious.   2003-04-17 08:36:36
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   my stuff is so hard to find because they were all actually POSTED on the street as POSTERS and not sold as collectible art prints. the only people who have copies either yanked them off walls, or have stashes like me for some reason (for instance, brian had a stash of my work, but it all got ruined in a flood).
so, i look at tis stuff as my retirement fund. if the demand is high enough, there is only one place they can buy it - me. and, i NEED a retirement fund.

i'm quite fair about that shit.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   seripop -
i just found out from clay that he didn't post that melvins poster by jeff because he didn't think it was a gigposter! ssweet!
i emailed him back and tried to guide him to the info text (i should send him a magnifying glass). maybe he'll post it now. dunno, really. finding the text is a major challenge...
  2003-04-06 10:46:59
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   seripop - that ain't nuttin'! what'll you see jeff's melvins poster. i just re-posted it (for some reason it didn't make it through). when it comes up i'll point it out. that one guy who took legibility to task will have a heart attack when he sees it!   2003-04-05 14:03:52
seripopSend seripop a message :   man what's wrong with you/ don't u know that for a poster to be egffective it must be readable from at least 100 feet away? :wink:   2003-04-05 13:50:51
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i une-upped jeff on the tweeny tiny type joke with this one (the bands are written in as the 'speed' marks on the baseball). but he later won the battle.   2003-04-05 13:46:22
