Haven't read all the comments, I'm sure someone already said this. Probably Sir Richard of Goodtimes.....

Wow...Any poster that gets this much response is a good poster.
Dear Ryan Slit,
I am very pleased to find out that the 8 dudes who went to your show in lovely York, PA liked this poster.
While, yes, there is a vagina on the poster, there really isn't anything exceptional about it. What I'd like to say to Denny, is, if you want to be all filthy and 'out there' and 'push the boundaries' and 'break down the walls and fuck up my reality' then really go all out.
This is too easy.
Wow...Any poster that gets this much response is a good poster. I loved it, I took a copy from the show. And any one who made a comment about the band I can be positive you have no idea what the band is, please if you are going to make an insulting comment about a musical act please educate yourself first.
I posted about this on the Poster message board of this site. Please read it to hear my opinion of this poster as the owner of KAM. And Denny, thanks again for everything. See you at the show you fucking genius.
Well i skate for Kam and i have to say wow! Denny you sure do know how to get someones attention. LoL i can see all the parents of the young skaters faces now when they see this. They are going to kill krisy and the rest of us who are older lol
Well I think its kinda amusing how the pink backs up to the words Wet, and render.... with the pink square at the bottom. Of course maybe coincidence, still, It does remind me of the 70's penthouse pics where the girls were all nasty and spread, not like the good girls in playboy. :o
I know its not a poster Id be hanging up or even worse, hahahahaaaaa, that in itself would be worth paying $16.00 to watch , even if it was in bars and tatoo parlours etc...
Man...you guys are killing me.
Yes, this poster is up. Two posters were made for this show. One for people who can handle the site of a naked women and the other for people who can't. This poster is hanging up at bar. This is a dirty rock and roll bar. No worries there. The other places I put this up at are places like the area tattoo shops and such. I'm not stupid, I'm not going to hang this at the grocery store.
Do I think this is trashy and vulgar? Yes, but look at the band name. They want a vulgar name, I'm gonna give them a vulgar poster. Yes I could have used a picture of the Colorado river. But if I did I bet it would't have got as many comments as it did. It probably wouldn't have even been looked at. I didn't think I was being innovative and making a crazy shock the public poster. I was just going with the band name and giving them a good old fashioned puss puss.
As far as the type goes i agree. The type could use some work. I never claimed to be a master of design. Every artist starts out as a bad artist. Even you. Remember that. I try different ideas and styles. Some works, some doesn't. How the hell else are you supposed to learn.
My color choice. I like it. I never had a problem with the 80's.
I'm sure if I was like some of you and spent 20 hours a day on gig posters looking at every single poster and leaving silly comments like neato or a smiley faces saying wow. I too would be sick of trashy naked lady posters. But unfortunately I'm not on here every minute of the day and neither are the people going to these shows. In my small town these simple posters work. They grab the most attention on the bars walls and next to the other flyers at the local shops. I'm sure if I was in New York things would be different, but I'm not.
Nice use of metaphor... or maybe not
How about a birds eye view of the Colorado river curving it's way through the Grand Canyon been better? That's what I get for thinking.
I have no affiliation with anyone on this list.
"I'm with stupid."
I think it's dirt cheap to use such a cliched "shock the public" porn image... but I dunno... I think the design is sorta' cool. Or at least, thought out a bit. I've seen way, way, way, way worse typography on this site...
upon closer inspection. she is nicely groomed.
good wax job. great nails.
her chest is quite sexy too and her nipples are very nice..
and this is a side project for cky.. and actually im sure that dude would love this poster... anyone familiar with cky would know what i mean.
i dont agree with philaarts.com
completely pointless and self indulgent
easy image, poor type, dumb color choice
probably 2 copies were printed, one is on the designers wall, the other one is on the wall of the practice space of the einsteins who thought wet slit was a cool name for a band
every artist should just stop and look at this. then they will realize that all the stuff they ever made was crap, and go work at burger king, because this guy is the master. didn't da vinci's teacher go work at burger king?
anyways... GREATEST POSTER OF ALL TIME
:bang: :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:
It reminds me of when I was a kid . . . I found a centerfold that had been ripped from a fairly raunchy magazine in some woods near my school. The rain had faded it a bit, and as a result it sort of looked like this but without the text treatment.
