Can there also be a rainbow bustin' outa the triangle with a Miata driving along it? :D

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   I disagree. There should be a giant pink triangle on here.
The people must know they're going to see a gay dude.
  2005-03-01 19:08:57
andydieselSend andydiesel a message :   Why would being gay be considered into the design of a poster? I'm sure Bob has many women friends and doesn't constantly think "does this or that look to heterosexual?"
the image may or may not fit his music, but i really think it shouldn't be about his sexual preferance.

A bald gay penis in the shape of the Foshay Tower with a Jackrabbit running across a road going to the Motel in the sky, there HAS to be a truck, and someone trying to change someone's mind but being unsuccessful. You might want to fit a spoonbridge with cherry on there somewhere.

M.P.H. DesignSend M.P.H. Design a message :   For arguement's sake, a recent Aesthetic Apparatus poster featured a skeleton for the Delgados. Some could make the same arguement a skeleton image says nothing to the delgado's female lead singer and melodic style. Or that an eagle has nothing to do with Low...another recent AA poster.
I think its interesting to talk about relevant imagery since I think most rock posters are self-indulgent, and lack a concept that links the poster to the music/artist. I might be guilty of it here. What would have been more appropriate for bob mould? I'm not saying my poster was the best answer, but it seems weird to limit or pigeon-hole the imagery because the artist is gay.

M.P.H. DesignSend M.P.H. Design a message :   To tell you the truth, I had no idea that bob mould was a homosexual before doing this poster. I just always loved his music, but I never knew much about him as a person. I just thought it was cool image to morph a guitar into a woman, since playing a guitar can be a very sensual, almost sexual act. I wasn't so much trying to create a icon that identified bob mould as a musician or an individual, as much as I was just trying to make an overall statement about the sensual nature of good music. Overall i think women are more readily identified with sensuality, regardless of sexual orientation.   2005-03-01 16:38:59
meliaSend melia a message :   i don't "get" this poster as a bob mould poster. nothing about it says "bob mould" to me except the text...

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Glad that got sorted out. I was getting worried that there was gonna be some poster artist war in the city and I'd have to take sides...
What if it turned into the Highlander? Things could get ugly...There can be only one.
I'd have to kill you all...and all because of two Bob Mould posters made for one show.
  2005-03-01 15:34:53
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   After talking with Michael at length and the noisepop people, it turns out there was a major glitch in communication about who was doing the poster for this show. Michael was asked to do a poster as was I, so both posters are legit and I "officially" take back my previous comment.   2005-03-01 15:31:47

spilled milkSend spilled milk a message :   yeah its great... just came back to this. Something different. Seems to be relaying the femininity of the guitar. All the relevant image comments seem weird since 90% of the posters on this site don't have relevant images.   2005-03-01 14:54:09

I think AlienSkin makes something called FAGGOTRY-F-X for Photoshop.
It includes PhotoFelch and Gaussian Reacharound.
Kinda prohibitively expensive tho.

HYNESSend HYNES a message :   gigs over - not mad. I just believe my commisioning source was officially in charge of posters for this show and all of the noisepop posters. Not discrediting this poster in way - its just always a little annoying to end up with another poster at the show you werent expecting.   2005-02-28 13:12:31
DecabetSend Decabet a message :   DOnt get mad at each other over this guys. Theres lots of posters on here that are unofficial because some desktop publisher twat wanted to stuff his portfolio.
This just seems like it was handled badly at the promoter level. Seems to be gettign more common. Yall still shouldnt be mad at each otehr over it.
  2005-02-28 13:09:35
DecabetSend Decabet a message :   Oddly enough it is. I work with alot of gay musicians, DJs, artists, and "queer artist" tends to be the nomenclature of choice.
Its like a badge of honor thing.
Doesnt necessarily apply to all, but its not an offensive term.
  2005-02-28 13:07:41
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   sorry my post got deleted - I was asked to do this by the person handling and doing all the noisepop posters this year, i also included the sponsoring radio station info which just makes it more official.
I mean i dont know the circumstances surrounding this poster but i do know there shouldnt have been 2 at the show.

DecabetSend Decabet a message :   Regardless of what Pansy Division think BTW, not every poster for a queer artist needs to feature big ol weenises and distended rosebuds.
Having said that, the female image implies a slinky sexuality that Mould does not possess.
Also, is that Winona?
