I was way into John Buscema and Marvel Comics around this time, 1969 or so. I was totally waiting for the opportunity for it to be Clobberin' Time. My little comic fantasy fight turned from Jack Kirby to R. Crumb when the fucking eyeball took off down the sidewalk. That'll freak a 6-year old OUT.
I think I screamed, but I can't remember if any sound came out.
I kind of remember that kid originally got his eye accidentally poked out with a stick (oops!).
He wore like gauze over it when he didn't have his glass eye in. His mom used to come on the schoolbus & put the fucking thing in. All the other kids were trying to get a peek at the socket, which was pretty fucking gnarly.
This is really nice. I think the biggest reason it fits Bjork so well is that it is similar to the stuff m/m does for her with the thin lines creating a web kind of a thing. But, I think Andrio beat them at their own game with the execution on this one.

i just want the lines to go into the foot of the K. it's killing me. if that happened then i would be ok with the entire thing.
I've been seeing bjork wheatpasted posters around, possibly advertising a new album. They are black and grey and kind of spacey-very vaughan Oliver looking. This poster matches the tone, colour and feel of those.
It is a great example of a designer (Andrio) utilising and respecting an artists current look without totally copping it or totally disregarding it. This without a doubt fits what Bjork is currently doing.
John A is funny. That doesn't change the fact that Flipper sucks. And sure... Slayer sucks as well. Blah, Blah!!
All music sucks when you get right down to the root of it. It's all a bunch of bullshit.
I don't think Andrio is doing anything particularly special that others arenot. He's good at what he does no question.
This poster is great though. Because it really does fit Bjork pretty well. Maybe it's a little dark for her if I was being picky, but it's pretty much perfect just as it is.
And I don't like Bjork nor did I like the Sugarcubes.
Do all you people REALLY think this is a great poster or just chime in because other people say it's a great poster.
I like alot of Andrio's work but would have looked right past this one had there not been a 100+ comment string of BS attached to it.
Richie is correct.
I don't think Bjork sucks.
this poster is great!!
it's mostly a typographical solution as opposed to an illustrative one. it cannot be deconstructed into an art print because the concept is centered around the text. that doesn't mean an atmospheric illustration with bjork's name on it wouldn't make a great bjork poster. it may be great for 100 other atmospheric bands as well, but change the text on this poster and you have the same scenario. art can be representative of a band just as well as type. i don't understand the problem.
richie made a relative comment
"This is perfect for Bjork. I can't stand Bjork...but this is what she sounds like. Atmospheric. The poster fits her and only her. Can't be deconstructed into an art print. Good poster. "
i remember when i talked to richie and he said he knows what audience he does shit for... which is totally working for a client. i found that very refreshing. richies face has become one with the melvins... wierd aint it?
Once when I was in the first grade, I got in an argument with this kid and punched his eye out. His fucking EYE popped the fuck out and went rolling down the pavement. After a minute or so of being fucking horrified, I learned that he had a glass eye.
The teacher made us hug it out.
Three times for bands who are actual friends of mine and enjoyed that I did that to the posters.
And people remember those posters and the bands they were for. Even if thet don't want to.
Thats fucking success.
I am amused by yuppies, so there you go Michael Apparatus.
"I hate designer bullshit where the band names for different posters from the same designer are interchangeable with the art."
This coming from a guy who repeatedly puts his own face on posters.
I am amused.
I worked on some stuff and played video games. One thing I worked on was a poster. Another thing was a poster as well, but thats not mine...I'm just doing the seps for a Tara painting. No biggie, huh Zach Hobbs? Were you too busy to do that one or do you not know how? Anywho...
People think I hate designer bullshit. Well thats just not true. I hate designer bullshit where the band names for different posters from the same designer are interchangeable with the art. Get me? Probably not.
Oh, hi ritchie. Nice to know you still hang around here. I've been really busy this year designing posters. what about you? I know you're full of witty comebacks and "jokes" but you know, why do you LURK here without really giving a shit or adding anything worthwhile?
you really know how to be a "giver" ritch.
Does anyone care about Zach Hobbs opinion?
This is perfect for Bjork. I can't stand Bjork...but this is what she sounds like. Atmospheric. The poster fits her and only her. Can't be deconstructed into an art print. Good poster.
Zach Hobbs is a level 23 dork.
