I don't think my reaction was based on emotion. And usually I can handle bad design...but the stupidity of the piece is what motivated my response. But I hear what you are saying. SO much good work and well done work doesn't get much attention and this "work" like this does....
Rock on rockers.
Well now, there's nothing wrong with the idea of local bands in general. I don't know what these guys sound like, by their posters, I don't think I'd like them, but almost every band started as a local band.
Yes, but the last time a reacted emotionally to a 9-11 themed piece, everyone tlked shit to or about me for hundreds of comments afterward.
All I'm saying on this peice is that perhaps we shouldn't take it seriously enough to let it evoke emotion. Look at the other posters by Mr. Nolan, they're low-brow comedy, and a sad stab at that.
If you want to rage against this poster I 100% back-up your right to do so, I just don't think it's worth your energy.
I completly but respectfully disagree Brendan, if you don't want your work judged, don't post it here. People have a right to give there two cents for or against a design. I usually don't say anything negetive about anyones work. However, I don't see the creativity in this piece. I don't think it is funny. It appears to be a cheap ploy by someone without any common sense.
I don't like the poster, there's something about it that just doesn't seem right - My geographical location is probably not completely separate from thist feeling. I'm not usually a fan of TBM posters, but I'm not the kind of person they're trying to attract to their shows, so that's fine too.
This TBM poster shows me that they tried to do something to help out back in 2001. It doesn't give them a right to use this imagery in a joking manner, but it is a little bit of a saving grace.
Todd Nolan is just a completely different kind of person than I am, and I don't think that that's reason enough to get pissed off. This is just a silly poster advertising a show.
Let it be.
TBM i would like to correct you on a few of your points. first is that you claim seripop's work isn't 'blowin anyone's minds."
well PRINT magazine just did a feature on them, sooooo i mean... you know
and on the "not being able to handle" trapped by mormons, i'm going to venture that daughters is a weee bit tuffer than that, but you know i'm sure you could link me to a purevolume site or something.
and it's "jay jay the jet plane" not "jay jay the airplane" see there's literary devices at work.
with that being said, i think your poster is hilarious.
I thought it was pretty simple...but, here it goes...its a take off on that Jay-Jay the Airplane religious god-fearin' cartoon for kids coupled up with a good guys VS bad guys 9-11 reversal of misfortune thingy-ma-bopper going on...kinda like playing king of the mountain for keeps.
can you like, uh..explain this poster?
seriously...it makes no sense to me whatsoever.
oh and you should try turning up the waver on your fire filter and using it only on dark/black backgrounds...
there. honest constructive criticism.
Thanks Phila...I appreciate one positive response from the peanut gallery of pompous art-school fags.
Seri...last I checked your pissing Michelin men and intestinal unicorns weren't quite blowing anyone's mind and 20 bucks says our music would probably be too much for your Napoleon Dynamite Liger brain to handle....word.
Kurt-yup, thats our Lord above givin' the thumbs up to this holiest of wars.
Paper&Asthma....its my band and I'll do what I want to....now, go back to your spooning session.
