I had totally forgotten about the Fry Guys and the Captain Hook dude. I think in overall context of the Melvins and rock posters this uses the formula that Kozik put in place really well. It's like the perfect "1996" rock poster. And I like that very, very much. Again in context to the band.
i disagree with the 'not original' comments. while the interpretation is not totally original, the poster is original in spite of it.
it has to be evaluated on different levels, not the least of which is that it is a concert advertisement. it's perfect for what it is. this is conceptually one of the strongest pieces i have ever seen. this is for a show right in the center of the bible belt alongside one of the longest interstate highways in the country. it attacks two very american things, fast food and the religious right, and does so deep in the heart of both. it fits the bands PERFECTLY.
we see a lot of posters doing what we do. for me at least, not many stand out like this one.
i apologize if i just stated the obvious while wasted again. i do that once in awhile. i like this poster.
this appeals to me because a: it reminds me of my childhood, b: lee took the time to add totally obscure mcdonaldland characters--kudos for that, c: it's extremely well executed, d: it looks like it's printed perfectly and e: it's for one of my all-time favorite bands.
The Last Supper has been reinterpreted countless times by countless artists. One of my favorite artists, Ron English, has painted it a few different ways himself including using Ronald as Christ. For me, this set up never gets. As has been stated here repeatedly, it's a good drawing and an excellent print. I only hope I can find the cash before it sells out.
I wondered about that, too. I got a cease and desist once from Target for an illustration of businessmen with bull's eyes on their backs that I'd hired an illustrator to do for the business mag I design.
i think it's this guy "Captain Crook was a pirate and is similar in appearance to the famed Captain Hook from Peter Pan. Unlike the Hamburglar, this villain spent his time trying to steal Filet-O-Fish sandwiches from citizens of McDonaldland while avoiding being caught by Big Mac, the Chief of police of McDonaldland. As part of the nautical theme of the character, Captain Crook used ships and waterways as means to escape being captured. In his final appearances, he was renamed simply "The Captain" and his character design made less sinister. The character was dropped during the streamlining of the characters in the '80s."
Well All I have to say is that this poster is incredible...But...why does it matter if someone gives a negative comment? I wish this site had more of that, people giving crit. Its called a comments section, not praise. If a poster is good it should get good comments, and not everyone likes everything, but everyone should be able to speak their opinion. Calling people out for saying something thats not a hail of praise isn't right, we should encourage each other to be more honest and tell eachother what we really think, ya know? I am really sour that i had to miss this hometown show, and especially now that I have seen that this was the poster? DAmN!
I like the little rats under the table
never thought of myself as "not too bright" or a "hater"
all this praise, geez, I figured one
comment that wasn't favorable should be alright
seems like I have seen this imagery done so many times before
I have even liked this kind imagery
I am in on the joke
Dead Kennedys artwork in the 1980s,
Juxtapoz and Adbusters in the 1990s
I doubt my comments will matter to the creator
hell I wasn't hatin, it does look nice, knowing it was perfect CMYK printing is very impressive
not sure how people making a fuss over my own work matters
I've had plenty of negative comments, I can take it, give me some if you want
maybe I will learn something and/or
laugh it off
take it easy man, I like you
Word. I hear ya. Just thought it was funny.. and not so much with what you posted as you actually gave some reason to your side of it.
I probably shouldn't have said anything.. oh well, I'm gonna go play some floor hockey now.
it's totaly cool not to like something. I guess posting how i don't dig a poster isn;t something i would do.
Maybe i should. But then after enough posts of me saying how i don;t like posters i'm SURE i would be labeled an asshole or a hater.
In light of the recent "comments" on Paul's Blonde Redhead poster - thats funny Von Dada...
Good to know that you're either dumb or just a pain in the ass if you don't conform. :)
I agree with you though, this poster is perfect, just funny that people can't not agree with the majority.
Keith- you are either trying to be a pain in the ass or you are not very bright. It's pretty easy to see why people like this poster so much.
1. The image is well drawn.
2. The imagery is funny and a lot of people like imagery like this. Pop culture icons, drugs, and bible references = funny to a lot of people.
3. The pic posted is a pic of the actual poster, the printing is dead on perfect CMYK printing.
You get a lot of people making a huge fuss over your posters, personally they are not my thing, i don't go posting on your comments how i don't see what the fuss is all about. But what i do know is that art that appeals to some and may not to others.
Not to split McHairs, but wasn't it Uncle O'GrimaSEEN...?
(as in, "Shamrock Shakes
are a beautiful green --
the most beautiful green
that we've ever seen --
...Oh, Uncle O'Grimaceen..."
[evidently I'm the toolbag that questions the obscure pop culture
references -- I'm THAT guy...])
Great poster, BTW.
