ShadSend Shad a message :   I love the poster but agree with: " I'm dissapointed that there isn't more of a recogniseable Dave presence. "
It's almost like seripop covered and hid dwitt to give their own style prominance..not a very successful collaboration in my opinion. But Dave likes who the fuck cares what I think.

lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   I actually thought about the legibility issue some more and I think I'm starting to agree with Chloe. It's made for a select group of people. I'm part of that group and it really doesn't do anything for me but I realized last night that I'm guilty of the same thing.
About 8 years ago I did a tour poster for Storm&Stress that was simply varnish on white paper. Touch&Go hated it, record stores hated it - everyone but the band and the fans hated it. They loved it. We made tshirts that were white ink on white shirts. The kids loved them.
I think that same thing kinda applies to Seripop stuff. You either get it, which means you think it's genius, or you don't, which means their smug, exclusionary and/or elitist.
Regardless, I don't think anyone will lose any sleep over it.

Dusty!Send Dusty! a message :   ok then.
a- i like the poster b- ide rather sit here and try and read this one that be easily be able to read alot of the stuff on here c- being that its for Give Up The Ghost, I dont think it fits the band, but if they arent the headliners than i think its cool. Or if give up the ghost sounds nothing like American Nightmare, im wrong.
also, out of all your shit, i think this is one of the most easily readable, and you know i can never read this shit!

seripopSend seripop a message :   i have no probs with crits at all. if you see this poster on the street and it doesn't draw you into reading it then it's probably not made for your eyes. however, comments on how i probably don't do any of the design work or how we think we are so much cooler than everyboy or that we are "poseurs" (who the hell says that after high schol is what i wanna know?) is not only not a crit having anything to do with the poster but it's compleatly absurd. yes, we (often) design posters for a certain music scene (noise/art rock). i dont see how reflecting the aestectic of the music could be "fake" or "contrived" in the slightest. the point of a good poster is to convey the vibe of the event to it's intended demographic. we know our demographic very well because we are a part of it- we do stuff for bands we are fans of, the bands our band plays shows with. alot of the posters we make we are playing the show, setting it up or djing it. we are pretty involved in the noise scene in canada and beyound and our intents to make grapchics for the bands we enjoy are sincere. granted the demographic we work in is often pretty small but that is our personal choice and for the record we are doing just FINE (financially and otherwise) so thanks for the concern.
comments from people like "tornado" or "smackattackyo" or "peeskill avenger" mean nothing. they are simply alises certain people use to talk shit without soiling thier hands. the main thing i learned in art school was this: consider the source (of crits). ANYONE and EVERYONE can have an opinion , it only means something if you respect them either for thier work or for their knowlege/taste in arts. SO if the artists and people on this site i RESPECT like chantry , meeloo, largemamal , jet-ski ect thik it's good it means alot more than random anonymous shit sligers saying it's bad. thank you all and GOOD day.

TenebriniSend Tenebrini a message :   I too wonder about the anonymous. If you belive in what you say, have the balls to stand by it otherwise it loses a good deal of impact.
I originally was going to avoid commenting on this poster becasue I had a hunch somehting like this thread was going to happen and I know that Cloe thinks I'm a hack and doesn't care about my opinion anyway. But because I know and work with Dave and had heard about the piece, I was anxious to see it. I'm dissapointed that there isn't more of a recogniseable Dave presence. As far as Seripop's work I like about 10% of it. This doesn't fall into that percentage. The legibility doesn't really bother me in that that is what I would expect from Seripop. The colors hurt my eyes.
I know you all care so much.

you have no clue what you're posting, but then again, i have no clue who the fuck you are.
on another note, you need to look up the definition of "slander".
i don't know what you have anything to do with the ridiculous "livejournal" fiasco, which did more to make other people look like total assholes than their intended target.
as far as that stuff goes, you're not exactly "calling me out" on that garbage because i could give a fuck about a juvenile atempt to start some high-school bullshit, by some idiot with too much time on their hands.
when are these anonymous people going to grow some balls?
people on here know who i like and respect and who i don't. when someone like you comes on here and tries to put me in my place, you're not getting very far, trust me.

Why does it have to be that everyone is against them just because this poster isnt good? You alls clique is very two faced. You crit everything else and cant take it yourselves without making it some personal martyr situation. If I recall from reading here you were one of the handful of people along with Chloe who were doing that slandering of other artists over on that online journal a while back. Weve seen how you guys clique works dont try to convince us that you are saints are something. The poster doesnt work on several levels. Take the crit and move on for godsakes! :roll:   2003-11-11 11:12:22

gun shoSend gun sho a message :   between the left-handed compliments and standard attack-rhetoric, nothing makes sense. bottom line, half the people on here simply do not like seripop's stuff AND chloe and yannick could give a fuck whether their work is adored by that fraction of people.
if chloe wasn't a chick, i doubt that most of this shit would come down on her the way it does. case in point, "tornado" who hides behind an internet alias to launch his or her attacks and assumes that chloe is a talentless bimbo who does nothing but hang out on gigposters. too much projecting going on.
what's strange to me is that these people can't even come to a consensus agreement on their insults.
i've seen this poster in person. i don't think it's chloe's and yannick's best work, but each poster doesn't need to show the peak of their talent.
this poster, and the comments on it, really reflect how poor the internet can be in communicating things.
first off, this thing looks a million times better in person. the jpg is not a good reflection of that. second, for those who can't read it or don't like it, get over it, who cares? i can read it. when chloe and yannick first showed it to me, i stood there for a minute or so trying to decipher it. THAT doesn't bother me, it's a matter of taste.
there are thousands of posters on this site that appeal to some people and disgust others. who cares? why are seripop's worth more to you to destroy than all the countless others on here?
second. just as this poster is misinterpreted, so are chloe and yannick.
i know chloe and yannick, i just spent close to a week with them in Canada. I spent a while with them over the Summer as well.
i've been told of their "snobbery", lack of talent, etc, and in my subjective opinion, those observations are wrong.
seripop's tagline should be; "seripop probably works harder than you".
they tour with their art. they spend forever on designs. they work fucked-up hours. they print their own shit in a cramped studio. they WORK HARD.
when people come on here, somehow insulted by chloe, because she's insulted by them, what the fuck do they expect?
so far, there have been so many atempts to put chloe in her place, and she's come out of it every time. give up. honestly, the only thing that i can say about chloe that's remotely negative is that she's wasting her time even fighting over this stuff.

since Oct. 2002 I've done about 100 posters on my own, a bunch more with Squad19. 2 album covers. a couple T-shirt designs. some ads. some collaborations. A comic book. (for Amish Armada)
I barely pay my bills. I got about three gallery shows coming up. One opens this weekend, a fourth I just took down.
Everyone thinks I should paint full time.
I'm gonna find another Triple Rock show for us to collab on again real soon. Or perhaps something for either of our bands.

since 2002... how many posters have you two done?
how many record covers?
how many shows and where?
how many posters are sold out?
are you guys able to keep afloat financially with your current work?
I would guess that 99% of the bands that seripop does posters for is crap for my personal taste... but damn those posters are sweet... not only that, these 2 uncombed and unwashed punks travel all over the damn place... and yes some of the shows might be in a backyard somewhere but heh, it works for them and thats all I care about... plus they just got back from NYC where they were kind enuff to hand out gigposters stickers that anydiesel mailed to them. The only problem I have with them is with the fact that they dont eat beef stew... but I am working on that
keep doing whatever you guys do there in Canada...

I assume if you were a member of this scene that Seripop caters to you would also find this poster, possibly illegible, maybe hurtful on the eyes, but rewarding in all of its faults and a pleasure to own.

It really doesn't matter what we on this site think about this, I'm sure this poster did its job. Seripop has a distinctive style, and they wouldn't be so successful if their posters weren't effective.
For the record, I like it 'cause it looks cool . . . But I honestly can't read past the first line.

DWITTSend DWITT a message :   Before the show, when Give Up The Ghost was getting some awesome Triple Rock food, I gave them a bunch of these, and one of the guys joked, "Why don't you just keep it and use it for some other show?" It was funny.
Daughters was like, " Hey look Seripop!!"
There was a girl waiting to get in the show, and she was staring at the last copy hanging on the wall, she suddenly shouted, "I can read it!!! YES!!" and ripped it down to take home. It was awesome.
It's tough to read, sure, not illegible. A good fit for the show.
I unfortunately missed the Give Up The Ghost set cause I was talking to Jeremy Wabiszcswwesdwzcz, and checking out his animated movie.

GrzecaSend Grzeca a message :   I like the discussions on what makes a poster appropriate for the type of music it promotes- I think whats cool about this give and take is that these posters are being continually made and put up and boom-onto the next one. The medium lends itself to experimentation if the artist wants to do that. Some artists treat each poster like it has to be an impeccable piece of art or design- maybe that's appropriate if the music calls for it... Im my case when Im doing work for free jazz / imrovisational music Im playing around with work in my sketchbooks that seems appropriate for some reason. Its fun to see the instant results of putting it out there with an event. Some work better than others. I think Chloe and Yannick have open minds and keep trying different things. Cool by me.   2003-11-10 13:25:38

seripopSend seripop a message :   well rene a big percentage of stuff we do is for noise rock or avant garde bands (ie bands many people find abraissive, unlistenable, "just noise") that is our prefered music to listen too so those are the jobs we seek out. now we try to reflect the music in our posters (and the way we treat text will change depending on the type of music the poster is for and what audeience we are reaching to) i'm not sure there is a prevailing visual aestectic that goes with noise/noise rock/art rock but i will say most of my prefered current posters artiss work in those music genres and many of my favorite posters made by those people are WAY harder to read than anything yannick and i hae ever made since we are in canada and the scene here is often several yars behind we feel that most of our stuff is and has to be pretty conservative compared to many of our peers who are making art for the same bands.   2003-11-10 13:18:11

piemelSend piemel a message :   seripop just mentioned something that has been on my mind for a while...
lets say you like a certain type of band... say 'daughters'.. does tha mean you then automatically or in most cases like a certain art style/form... and vice versa? in other words... if you dont like this poster you most likely wouldnt like the band nad if you hate the daughters and similar bands you wont like these style of posters?
in my opinion that's bogus... i do recognize though that metal heads like the skull crap stuff and faggy emo kids like faggy wings and birds... but personally I have tons of really cool posters for bands that i hate...
i guess to reflect a band you use certain images.. say skulls for hardrock music... and to a degree the style/design part can also be matched to a certain music type... but image/style are not that closely related to the music that they have become mutually exclusive right? (at least i hope not)
anyways i am blabbing
