kolfacekillaSend kolfacekilla a message :   awesome to see art chantry back on the boards, hopefully it'll continue. by the way, i went to the same college as art, albeit a few decades after. sooo, i like him that much more i guess.
and this poster continues to rock, especially since i've seen the other companion piece.

HankTrotterSend HankTrotter a message :   I used them on the pasteup to help position the overlay. Then, because of the dimensions of my artwork compared to the paper size, they showed up in the margin. I decided I liked how they looked and took the lazy step of not trimming them off.   2002-05-08 08:12:15
rotodesignSend rotodesign a message :   Since this was done on a xerox machine and not screenprinted, did you actually use the registration marks for registration, or are they just there for show?   2002-05-07 16:52:30
moxiegustoSend moxiegusto a message :   I used to be able to do some work on a machine that had the ability to use colors other than black. They only had blue at the time but the effect on astrobright paper was outrageous. I also did some work on a Rico-(sp?) graph once. It could use up to eight colors but the drums were $800 a piece. I'd like to find a refurbished one of those old devils. They were fun to work with and had an effect all their own. Primitive but colorful and still "punk-like".   2002-05-07 09:16:32
HankTrotterSend HankTrotter a message :   It isn't Mansfield. It's a stripper from 50s. The poster was produced on an 17x22 copier Kinko's used to have but which they got rid of because of all the paper jams. It was a great way to do short runs. Each color required changing out the toner dispenser and a separate run through the machine.   2002-05-07 08:43:05
Nolen StralsSend Nolen Strals a message :   besides the great old fonts used on favorite part has to be the positioning of the UP records logo...brilliant. a close second is the inclusion of the registration crosshairs.
yeah and kozik's right....mansfield was a monster...look at that horrid mug.

Steve HSend Steve H a message :   Look out for scrojo's new poster as "poster of next week" ;-)   2002-05-06 17:27:55
scrojoSend scrojo a message :   go kendra!......originally i was going to slam/question this being 'the poster of the week' but the bottom line is that it caught YOUR attention and YOU like it. i may not agree but i respect your choice.   2002-05-06 17:26:01
HankTrotterSend HankTrotter a message :   Look for this poster's companion which I submitted today. It was for a show originally scheduled for the following day at the same venue but which got moved to a few days later at a different venue. It uses a beefcake boy from a 50s "physique" mag. So, I'm an equal opportunity exploiter. It's got even dumber type and the layout's just as simple. These are two of my favorite pieces ever. I am very happy this one was chosen as poster of the week. Thank you, Kendra.   2002-05-06 15:25:40
kozikSend kozik a message :   seems to me Jayne's 'come hither' grimace is monstrous enough on it's own.   2002-05-06 15:16:38

SashSend Sash a message :   Hey, you know, I checked out the bopst poster that Kendra indicated below... pretty cool! And his other ones too. Like persian rugs of cybernetic pop culture mania. Refreshing.   2002-05-06 14:20:50
kevin jonesSend kevin jones a message :   im sorry jeff, but if i were to put this poster next to any of yours, and was asked which was better, it would be an easy pick.
the images, layout, type choices are in no way representative of the bands/music it is trying to promote. the blatent use ot T&A to call attention is better suited to the huge ad agencies who are better and have more experience at it. i have no doubt that Hank is a quality artist, i just feel that this poster was a one-off rush job, and not much thought was put into it.

Jeff KleinsmithSend Jeff Kleinsmith a message :   While this poster may seem rudimentary in it's layout and message, I find it original in it's presentation, and refreshing when compared to many of the other posters on this site. There is a straighforwardness and a playfulness in Hank's work that I wish I found (more often) in my own. I like it.   2002-05-06 13:58:36

kevin jonesSend kevin jones a message :   hours spent not working while browsing the posters on this site: roughly 5 hrs.
my hourly rate tends to hover between $22 and $25 / hr.
minus the "happy to see great art on a decent website" discount of 50%.
equals: roughly $55
i accept all major credit cards, paypal, check and or money order. expect 7-10 business days for personal checks to clear.

KJSend KJ a message :   this was picked by me, Kendra Jones. instead of chosing it as poster of the week, i should have purchased it from Hank and hung it on my wall so I could look at it in the privacy of my own home. maybe it appeals to me for ironic reasons, being a female heterosexual i can't say it was chosen because I want to do the nasty with the model. yes, it is basic, but it complements all the other poster of the week choices well. if anyone is unsatisfied with my choice i will gladly refund your time spent on and next week i will leave the decision making to Clay who will pick the MOTHER OF ALL GIGPOSTERS!!!!! :lol:   2002-05-06 12:51:16
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   I see what you mean,i'm sure hank is a good poster designer but this particular piece (no pun intended ;-) ) is about as basic and un-innovative as posters get.for this to be poster of the week i would say it was picked randomly out of a hat. :lol:   2002-05-06 12:17:00
bopstSend bopst a message :   SSeems a tad bit mundane to hold the coveted poster of the week honor, but I would reserve judgement until I saw this in person. The site holds better testaments to Trotter's design abilities than this poster indicates though it milks the ability of an attractive woman to render the viewer speechless than actual visual innovation. No one ever goes broke pushing the graphic virtues of tits & ass as history has made so well evident, but mining the shallow end of the pool is easy pickings and doesn't bring anything new to the table except for personal preference regarding what the viewer wouldn't mind engaging in the nasty with. A time honored tradition though a hard on inducing poster should be given a little bit of shit just for playing it safe as hard ons are easy to come by.   2002-05-06 10:22:22
kevin jonesSend kevin jones a message :   hmm, this is a poster of the week. i really wish some poster designers would get tired of the big breasted chick thing.
sure, i would rip this off the wall if i saw it, but only because i wouldnt want to look at it.

kolfacekillaSend kolfacekilla a message :   hank trotter is a goddam genius, i can't believe he hasn't posted more stuff on this site. so many amazing artists out of seattle, which has the worst postering laws around. is the velvet elvis open anymore? thought they closed in 99....   2002-04-23 11:36:39
