Thanks for all of the positive feedback... and cody all of my posters are available on my website. way more then is on gigposters... it's hard for me to keep up with the internet, since i don't have connection.
I like, just one nitpicky thing: I keep looking for the umbrella handle. That would have completed it for me. I like the rough texture of the owl, the perf edges, the rain, layout, colors, etc. Magnifico.
fergin hot, ryan. another solid addition to the portfolio of the best postermaker of west-central indiana. i especially like the perf-edged text box on the bottom.
as for the recurring images of birds theme discussed below: perhaps this is just a new addition to the list of older poster imagery cliches which WE ARE ALL guilty of: skulls, hot rods, boobies, "appropriated" cartoon characters, ...and birds.
cool poster, but like Enothing said, that owl is annoyingly familiar. I think its similar to a publisher's logo but can't remember. Either way it doesn't really matter as most owls look pretty much the same.
I don't think there's anything strange or deja vu-y about using an umbrella to protect your self from the rain.
Rain comes from clouds.
Clouds are in the sky.
We ALL live under the sky.
What deja vu's me are all the freakin' Human BEINGS!! Enough already!!!
Seen one ya seen them all....
