Platinum RichSend Platinum Rich a message :   i tried trading with art, all i got in return was dirty socks.
it's odd, on my poster the "E's" were successful at mating causing a litter of lowercase "e's" to slowly devour my poster. art's work really does destroy itself.

It's weird cause unlike a regular dart board you have to aim off center to hit the dot.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   malcolm garrett did the buzzcocks stuff. it's brilliant work. thanks for the mistake!   2002-11-14 05:34:34
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i gotta point out that dana is not in any way affiliated with modern dog - ever. dana is art director of the la weekly and used to live up in oak harbor washington, where he was the drummer in the accused. his band was the reason tom hazelmeyer started amphetamine reptile (amrep) records. he wanted to record the accused, his own band (halo of flies) and the thrown ups (with members of mudhoney and ed fotheringham on vocals).
in seattle, dana used to do work for me at the rocket. we became friends.
he's nuts.

CousinSend Cousin a message :   I'm fine with the dot, but for me the interlocked (breeding) E's make this poster. Kinda reminds me of the double Z's in the Buzzcocks logo. Anybody know if Chantry did that too?   2002-11-13 22:02:11
thinkmuleSend thinkmule a message :   i like the ee's!!!...very smart...and I think the dot makes the poster....It seems to really fit the band..it gives it taste of intensity....it is cool how the simplest thing can make a design kick butt and make it rememberable....like this poster...awesome....

Here's his stuff: http://www.gigposters.com/designers.php?designer=7270 Believe me, Modern Dog has proven on this site to be rather unprofessional. Check the forums. It's kinda sad.   2002-11-13 20:50:04

jason_killingerSend jason_killinger a message :   damn. this is so nice.
dave told me you were doing something for the troc. i can't wait to see one of these in person.
the type is so perfect. i love it.
  2002-08-15 12:49:44
jsheehanSend jsheehan a message :   Tough call on the "to highlight or not highlight" questions. I like the type myself as the eye catcher, but agree with the white in the eye which really grabs you. Its actually irritating, which in the end really draws your eye to it. I wouldn't have done it, which is why less people would've looked at it. It really gets yer attention and has a menacing quality. Which is soooo Chantry.   2002-08-12 19:44:47

FinchSend Finch a message :   Me likey - me wantey.
The image is cool, but the type handling makes it for me - especially the juxtaposition of the two "E"s.

jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   All semantics aside I do like it. I do think that you can have taste in design...I mean that, with what you did - it works too...but the other could just as easily work...I guess what I am saying is I don't think that there is necessarily a correct 'take' on it or that there are even opposing sides...its not about not sticking out for me...its how to stick out without compromising the essence of the design...and to that extent I believe you would have succeded either way; with or without the dot...I always attempt to make the factor27 designs stick out but I definatly do restrain myself...it my nature in design...but I always like pushing on my own practive runs...in the corporate clients world I will give them both direction, safe and aesthitaclly pleasing and daring and not so correct...but both have elements of the other...ok, I have to bathe now and if it makes you feel any better (and I hope it does) This piece is just as easily a 'Killer piece' to me :) keep posting and making work art - I for one love to see it.   2002-08-12 13:27:54
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i guess i'm not very interested i 'nice pieces'. i'm interested in 'killer pieces'.   2002-08-12 12:56:44
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   plastic -
the deal is with my work is that i ALWAYS go for the 'screamer'. i and so used to having to visually compete on a wall of good posters, that i have become locked to the idea of 'jumping off the wall'. i think that is one of the elements of my work that has resulted in my so-called 'success' - my ability to get noticed.
this is advertising, not art. it's design. part of design is getting noticed, not blending in. in decoration, blending in is exztremely important, so as not to clash. in design, clashing is just another communication device. so is bright colors, screaming faces, dead babies, printing on metal, strange shapes, etc. etc. the difference between "good" design and "bad" design is often the effectiveness and ability to 'speak' with tools at hand, and certainly not the 'tastefullness". if good taste were all that design was about, this whole gigposter site would not exist.
so, my reasons for the dot are rooted in my basic ideas about what i do. 'pulling back' is not what works in my experience.
  2002-08-12 12:55:12
jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   I am sure you played with it with both. dot, no dot...and ultimatly its your call and I must respect that and assume that it was not getting it done without the dot...I just try to not put in elements that scream too much and pull the attention away, either way its a nice piece and the colors rult to, copper and silver - who could go wrong?   2002-08-12 12:42:02
Stainboy ReinelSend Stainboy Reinel a message :   I dig the dot. That's what caught my attention first. Keep doing dots. Definitely. Dude.   2002-08-12 12:22:57
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the dot. i put the dot in because it took it over the top into 'alien' creepy territory. the breeders have this 'goddess/fuckup' charisma that's hard to match. so, how do you do it in a picture? my solution was simple and nasty. without it, the poster looked a bit dull. and the type is obscene.
i'm a sucker for a strong gimmick.
  2002-08-12 12:18:13
jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   i really like it, though the dot where the eye is takes away from the rest of the print and seems a bit ' forced'. But other than that opinion of mine i think it ROCK..and it really nice to see another designer pay the proper respects to typography! nice work!   2002-08-12 12:11:30

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   wow! this is the first chance i've had to see this. it turned out rather nice, didn't it?
all hand lettered (cut out of xeroxed pages from type books and pasted in letter by letter. took about an hour).
  2002-08-11 16:14:12
stinkbaitSend stinkbait a message :   Wow new stuff from Art. Very cool type treatment. Notice the equal spacing from "the" and the top E and the "w/ imperial" and the bottom E. Everything ultimately squares up regardless of the type size. Nice detail. All done by hand Art or have you warmed up to the golden hammer? I bet these destroy in person, silver and copper. Damn!   2002-08-11 15:13:48
