For explanation, Mario's posters moved from the „Dirty Dozen“ gigposters.com designer page to its own, because Lars (the owner of Douze and member of the Dirty Dozen) didn't like and didn't respect this poster (remove from the douze online-store).
Lars. What's up? I'm a little confused about your writing. The name of the account was „Dirty Dozen“ and Mario was one of the „Dirty Dozen“, so like you. So it is a real Dirty Dozen design in my opinion. What's about the other „Dirty Dozen“-posters and designers on the page, what's about Michael, what's about Björn, what's about Theresa, and what's about me. We are all just friends and make our own individual art. We are the Dirty Dozen, I thought. I can't remember we had designed just for your own personal taste. And this poster has not more and not less influences of us than other Dirty Dozen posters. I really liked the idea behind Dirty Dozen Gigposters as an art collective built up on so much respect to each individual artist, helping on the screenprint jobs, making art alone or as collaborations and having fun together.That's the point I thought DDGP was a real good idea. But your decision for just this one poster confused me a little bit and leaves me a bad feeling.It takes out the freedom and fun of our art-projects. Maybe I was wrong of thinking what DDGP is and means for us.
Sorry Lars, that I had posted my opinion in English here on Gigposters.com about that. But I think the people out there should know the reasons why Mario's posters has removed from the Dirty Dozen page. I ever made some differences between Douze and Dirty Dozen Gigposters, and the people should know that. Douze (= Lars) is a design company, I think now. And Dirty Dozen Gigposters is an art collective of friends. So, Lars, you are right with „this poster is'nt a real douze design“. But this poster was submitted under „Dirty Dozen“. I don't believe you love all the other DDGP posters. There are some out of your taste, I think. No one require that. But some respect would be nice.
BTW, I think that poster is an nice print. I know the artist and I know he love that band and that is what he imagine by hearing and feeling Sophia's music. The most rock poster designer do the same – listen to the music, feel, thinking and making a poster in their own way. Someone like it, someone not. But respect should be there.
@gregory: this poster is'nt a real douze design, it was designd by a friend and it was made with our equipment, but not under our influence. dirty dozen - we are in a way open print-shop where friends come to help, or try to discover there own possibilities...
