Hi. This is Chris from 'The Special Purpose'. First off, Sei Rey thought of this poster after going to one of our shows and enjoying our cover of the theme from Super Mario Brothers. I can guarantee that he never saw whatever magazine is in question till well after this poster was completed. Believe it or not, some artists still rely on good old fashioned inspiration and not design magazines to come up with their ideas, and what the fuck is wrong with paying homage to great pop culture icons/visuals in your posters anyway??? This is a gorgeous, simple, effective, cool little poster that is a bit of an inside joke to those who know the band…haters can suck it.
So wait...using someone's pixel art from a collection of font dingbats from a video game is totally, completely different than lifting art from a video game?
It's a coincidence. Get over yourself.
1) You DONT know me, this is the internet douchetard
2) Those monsters are from a typeface, not the cover of Grafik magazine
3) After collaborating with Seripop, Zeloot and Duval, I couldn't give a shit what you think
Thanks for your interest!
Hypocrates? He was a Greek physician born in 460 BC on the island of Cos, Greece. He became known as the founder of medicine and was regarded as the greatest physician of his time. He rejected the views of his time that considered illness to be caused by superstitions and by possession of evil spirits and disfavor of the gods.
I think what Sariyevo is saying is that he appreciates you ill mokes straightening his shit out.
Fantasy Fudge in a Cloud
1 (8 inch) prepared yellow cake, cut into cubes
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 C. milk
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 ripe bananas
1 1/4 C. chocolate fudge sauce
1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling
In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix and milk; beat until creamy. Add cream cheese and beat until fluffy; fold in 1/2 whipped topping and set aside.
In a large punch bowl, layer 1/3 of cake cubes; spread 1/3 of pudding mixture on top. Continue layering with 1/3 of bananas, 1/3 of pecans and 1/3 cup fudge sauce.
Repeat layering with 1/3 of cake and 1/3 of pudding mixture; add 1/2 of cherries, 1/3 of bananas, 1/3 of pecans and 1/3 cup fudge sauce.
Repeat layers for a final time with remaining cake, pudding mixture, cherries, bananas and fudge sauce, reserving 1/3 of pecans for garnish.
Top with remaining whipped topping, drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup fudge sauce, and garnish with reserved pecans.
Refrigerate 4 hours; serve.
When I saw this, my first thought was the video installation I saw at the Whitney that had a hacked Mario Bros. game that just played the music and showed the clouds moving along, much like this poster.
I don't think it's a direct lift, more like the same cultural zeitgeist.
its obvious this is commentary on the state of modern computer graphic design vs traditional methods. It juxtaposes a slick pixel art graphic design magazine cover with rudimentary printing techniques to make its point, even addresses the eichelburger question, right?
