No, it would be a one color print.
Couple of photoshop filters. and print it in blue.
Honestly, I have a pretty think skined, but SHIT. WHAT THE HELL. Even if it DIDN't effect me, it is STILL a crap poster.
You run down 37 flights of stairs running for your life. Then you can call me on shit.
I think design can be offensive in a way that if done RIGHT can be ok. Infact the poster you so kindly alerted me to, is actually a case in point. Good execution, shit subject matter but for some asshat playing the Cat Club in california, it works. Doesn't effect them.
I bet you make a poster with their friends and family being swallowed up in an earthqauke . .. THEY WOULD LOVE IT! How about a pile of dead katrina victims and under the picture put "they can't make it to the show BUT YOU CAN!"
Go ahead, make us proud.
"Using this image for shock value is as lazy and as much of a cop-out as a hitler moustache on GW."
you could say the same for the Queen with her eyes blacked out on the Sex Pistols album. Or the bulging cock on the Sticky Fingers cover. Offensive stuff isn't anything new to posters or music imagery, this poster is just more offensive to you than most.
No, it didn't take skill to do the fish drawings or type on this, it's done in the manner of a bathroom scrawl, thass fine with me.
my brother got hit by a flying fish once. he was standing up in his boat realing in a rockfish and this flying fish came out of the water and hit him right in the chest. true story. he fell down but did not catch on fire.
I hate you.
I hate this poster.
I hate hating things, but for you an exception is made.
Can't wait to see you PERAL HARBOR, HOLOCAUST and HIROSHIMA posters asshole.
Maybe next time you could actually take the time to do more than 6 filters and let it fly.
Lame AND Sucks
Duh...ever heard of flying fish??
PosterChild probably made the best point...I wouldn't hesitate to use this image, but it must be considered that it also reflects on the band. The big Xfactor is would (or did) they approve it? If so, then rock on Beavis.
I like the fish attacking the towers. The political correctness thing will weigh on the band if people don't like it. I say everything is fair game. But if a 9/11 widow tries to assasinate the postermaker, that's a risk he runs.
I'm sure it exists, but I haven't seen a poster so offensive I would condemn the postermaker.
People are entitled to their opinions and illustrations no matter how powerfully you disagree with them. If you are truly for freedom of speech, you would allow Klan parades. In the US we don't have real laws on hatespeech, thus Klan marches are permitted under freedom of speech, as long as they're not hurting people or destroying property.
Remember the outrage that middle easterners showed at that cartoon of Muhammed with a bomb in his turban? If that is allowedm this is too.
Everyone knows that fish can't fly and if they did, they aren't 10 stories tall. The weight ratio to the flipper flapping speed would be impossible. They wouldn't explode on impact unless they swam in nitroglycerin right before taking off.
There's no such thing as "tasteless" when it comes to gig posters. If that's true, then all the Jesus, Hitler and porn posters would also be lame for the same reason.
I like the basic concept here- the crude fish drawings crashing into the towers. The overall quality of the execution is pretty shoddy though.
