For a CLUB SHOW this gig was stupid expensive. $40 cover, $40 Tee-shirts. Hell even this poster was $75. Not saying it's not worth it, it's a wonderful peice but God Damn did these guys bleed there fans dry. Now I remember why I don't go see to many commercial rock bands anymore. You got to be a rich man!
yeah i print my own. but i am a learner. i am trying to do something different. like any crafter type person. i'd like to get a little mat daly and mmm in there and some old tyme stuff but i never have time to explore. soon though. i am pretty darn stale these days. big changes coming soon though.
"rad!" "great work" "awesome" etc
Guy you are shooting for the stars with what you are doing with minimal colors. i can't believe this is one of your first transparent experiments - I look forward to seeing more.love the palette.
Do you print your own, or do you just send this off with specs. and the result is a surprise?
yeah dude really, you let gigposters effect your social life?
You take this shit too seriously bogus, I mean I guess richie hates me from the shit he's said to and or about me on here on this site but I wouldn't avoid him if i saw him somewhere I'd probably go out of my way to say hi.
Oh jon smith.
I hung out wiht your iceage cobra buddies a few weeks back, they invited me over to the house for some beers but I had to refuse on the grounds that you would probably scold me on the ethics of gigposter forum use all night, and how much fun would that be?
I want a big ass Jesus playing the cross art print. A screen print. Like 18 x 24 or bigger. Burwell hasn't ever done anything better than that.
Make it happen, Guy. That'd be like the first print I'd ever actually pay for.
My appologies, I was unaware that guy burwell had reached an unacheived level of godly awesomeness and no longer needs to ever here a single whisper of constructive criticism again.
Although i should have known that uttering anything other than "rad!" "great work" "awesome" etc on gigposters would result in an immediate lashing.
Oh, and I am no longer a student, i gots me one of them fancy bachelors degrees now, so slow your roll podolske.
Fantastic illustration guy, your definetly one of my favorites in the biz. Crit: I dont really care for the type, it feels "slapped on", like you did this wonderful illustration and then realized you still have to put some info on it, so you slapped some stuff on in photoshop. Its kind of got that beveled and embossed / too many strokes feel. but like I said, the illustration makes up for it many times over. As soon as I get out of this student debt bullshit I'll defiently be swinging by the store of burwell. Cheers!
Well i have always been a mostly spot color monkey so i wanted to try some stuff and so i did and you got to live with what you try, as Cheech and Chong have often said. Speedball is a funky transparent monkey, as Belushi wrote, and i know there are better inks for this but i gots to use what i gots to use, as Burroughs probably thought. So my experiments continue, as Cary Grant once displayed. Thanks for the support, as Jacques Strappe said to the underthing which now bears his spirit in spirit.
Guy knows of what I speak, the orbs have good definition, the figures get a little buried, but I know its a matter of taste, many of your great figures are semi-buried..but its the below the waist areas that needed more defining maybe?
just giving some contructive criticsim to generate some intellegent discussion..
its still very good young man, always exciting work coming from you.
Mr. Burwell's work is top notch and some of the best around, and I am sure this looks awesome in black and white. But sadly the colors here do not really help to define whats going on, it just looks like a big blob and seems to fight against all the great detail in the piece.. I know its within keeping of Guy's pallette aesthetic, But all that swampy poopy brown do not really do the excellent work justice, imho. its so close.. one more color to define some shading perhaps? but its still great...
