ofcourse jermie gets it...
he should make a poster in the style of elvis - 50,000,0000 million fans cant be wrong.... a black jermaine in an elvis jumpsuit surrounded by hundreds of little rabbits or deros..... that would make me giggle in a good way
the band liking the poster is indeed the overriding 'proof' that a poster is a 'success' for the most part
of this particular jermaine 'style' I think the 2003 NY is the best example ... this audioslave does not surpass that high benchmark... in my opinion.
i do think its cool that jermaine has a different style in his arsenal rather then pumping out only dero posters. however I do hope he does not switch completely to this style because I like it when artists mix it up from time to time
i wonder if I'll get more death threats from jermaine fans... they scare me
I guess I'm in this for all the wrong reasons. I have some posters that have sold out as well, but I don't recall feeling the urge to make more posters that look like those so that they would sell out as well.
jermaine is great at making images that sell. h
sell=appeal to the fans.
being a ramones fan, i dont think joey would wanna be on an audioslave poster.
but i bet cornell and the boys are huge fans, so they must have appreciated the image.
posters are for patrons of the gigs. appeal to them. this isnt for ramones fans, its for audioslave fans in nyc. joey is NYC punk.
jermaine does get it. i hate to admit it. but he totally does.
but, yao ming stinks.
gabba gabba so-so
nothing beats that 2003 neil young poster
and that is the problem I guess because anytime you release something in a similar style one expects the very same standard/quality as the one you use for benchmarking (in this case the NY)
not hating, just saying
I'm just a persnickety Ramones fan. I have a feeling that if the Youngbloods poster from '67 had been produced only a short time after Lennon's death, a Lennon fan somewhere would not have considered that his favorite poster.
Well I like this illo a lot, and I like Joey Ramone a lot as a cultural icon, but having him in this image doesn't particularly add or subtract from how much I dig the poster.
were you inspired to use him by the Ramones documentary PBS has been airing recently?
Cant say its my first time using images of musicians in other bands posters.
Lotta folks luv it...a few of em dont.
Im gonna cut off these fingers of mine and stash em in random bowls of chili...
Oh. I see what you mean.
Yea...I guess it was easy. No deep meanings or nuthin. AND people dug it...the 'suits' and 'the fans'...which kinda makes it more rad.
'Good' or 'genius'? Naw. I aint either.
Im doing whatever I feel like doing. Man comes up to me and says, 'Ill pay you to do a poster for us...and you can do whatever you want...', then Ill do what I feel like.
Who said it was Ramone?
Cause I got 5 more minutes, Ill play:
-The band loved them. Especially that 'Soundgargen guy'.
-The merch manager contacted EMEK the day after the show andlet him know to let me know this one sold out at the show.
-Interscope, the management company, and the merch company were all pleased.
-Oh yea...they paid me.
So whatd I do 'wrong'?
Other than the fact that this show is in NYC...what the fuck does Joey Ramone have to do with this band?
What's the connection? I don't get it.
You should have done Howard Stern. That would have at least been funny.
I don't see the connection between Joey Ramone...and dudes from what...Soundgarden?
Please explain...and not the it must be good cause the people on BRY will buy it explanation.
