andy (cody) -
i dont know if this is what you are thinking of, but i did a poster that was pretty much all text. (it was not very clever) it wasnt describing a poster or anything.
i think alex's is fucking great. very clever idea.
This would not have been ruined if you did something artistic to it as long as it was still just type.
I'm thinking something like this:
Doing anything remotely 'artistic' with this would have completely ruined the point of it. I spent a long time working out which font to use and whether to justify it all.
I wanted it to be as plain as it could possibly be.
Thanks everyone for the nice words!
again I like this poster but, what if the type was more interesting like in a richard prince or ed ruscha painting? I know you went with the very straight forward plain approach and that's cool, I'm just thinking what could have made it even more interesting.
There have been posters with just text (Mr Flattum did a rather great Folk Implosion one) but I haven't seen one that describes a poster. If there is then I doff my cap to the person who came up with it!
I didn't look at the thumbnail this morning when I checked the site. Now that I did I think it's pretty sweet, it's like the ultimate art fag poster. I've come to the conclusion that most of the posters I like are art fag posters.
