RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   I stopped talking to you cause you're a douche that says things like 'richieofgoodtimes.' I wish there was a way to ignore your comments like I can ignore you in the forum.

Stop being so bossy.

nationofevilmenSend nationofevilmen a message :   you guys are over analyzing low-brow art. How many posters on this site really act as an icon for the band? There's a saripop poster for an albatross that's a red boot...doesn't really scream an albatross, but it's a fucking amazing poster. Stop bitching because the powers that be didn't pick your poster.   2006-06-22 18:39:35
braksandwichSend braksandwich a message :   for the record, I never said ripoff. Ripoff is a strong word. I also added that I thought it was good. Let's all simmer down a little.   2006-06-20 11:05:06

jason head of stateSend jason head of state a message :   people were calling it a rip off....and a rip off of our work.....and i disagree. however, i don't think it is all that interesting.....visually or conceptually. i have no doubt that the artist had a concept in mind. I just don't think it comes across in a thought provoking/visually stimulating way.   2006-06-20 07:16:35
ZELIGSend ZELIG a message :   A pelican is an old symbol for Christ (it was erroneously believed to feed its young with its own blood pecked from its breast, in the same way that Christ's blood and sacrifice fed his children on earth). With the light behind it this bird has a religious appearance, like the dove that represents the Holy Ghost, or just spirit in general. So I guess they were going with a spiritual connontation which makes sense considering the venue.
I'd go deeper, but it would go unread.

8ballSend 8ball a message :   "there is of course the question of how it ties in conceptually to pelican mono?"
Although the "hands" do not take the shape of a pelican, they do imply a bird shape (pelican=bird)...mix it with the term "mono"...as in singular..fits the band name rather well..

jason head of stateSend jason head of state a message :   should this (or our 2 mentioned posters) actually have been made as a social injustice/anti-war poster, than we'd too be guilty of ripping off Masuteru Aoba (which btw the graphic imperatitive show is up in nyc now. it's great. go see it. a fellow professor here in philly was co-curator). however, being as this is another recycled image in a long line of recycled images, it doesn't bother me one bit. there is of course the question of how it ties in conceptually to pelican mono?   2006-06-19 08:14:27
VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   The previously two mentioned posters resemble this poster somewhat but this one:
http://www.luckypennyproductions.net/birdpic.jpg
...an actually famous poster, is probably the source for "inspiration/ripoff." It was done in 1980 by noted Japanese poster artist/graphic designer/art director Masuteru Aoba. Check it out for yourself at thegraphicimperative.org under the heading "PEACE"

danieldangerSend danieldanger a message :   you cant really call this poster a ripoff, because almost everyone on earth has made a bird with their hands at some point or another. its no different than the 1000's of posters featuring a middle finger.
also, im stoked this got poster of the week.

braksandwichSend braksandwich a message :   I realize it happens. And I actually think this looks nice. When do you know when its a rip and when its a coincidence?   2006-06-12 18:26:49
phoondaddySend phoondaddy a message :   Nice job.
Just because the idea has been done before doesn't mean this is a rip, I think it's well done and nothing like the other 2 stylewise. We need to cut that shit out IMO unless it's a direct lift.
