It's like, every few weeks or months someone does a lame poster and then gets sand in his vagina about it when they get a crit. This is getting played out.
Matt: Keep feeling like everyone is out to get you, and eventually they will be. Just ask Paul.
The image is powerful. I enjoy it. Good job for...finding it.
Like Tuffmasterflex said, that CMYK bidness is difficult to look at.
At first I enjoyed the text for the band name and the venue into, or the top half of the text portion, but that bottom half clutter just doesn't work for me.
I think a "harder" edge on the type might have been a better fit with the image. The soft sides of this type feel weak.
Oh, and you need to grow a second skin, fewl. A thin candy shell won't do when waiting for crit.
haha! it's not whining or being thin skinned. it's having the balls to call out douchebags who leave the same regurgitated comments all over this site. get some new material at least. all you haters should be happy i gave you some excitement for the week. it's obviously what you live for.
lil_tuffy - thank you for some solid advice.
El Negro Magnifico! - agreed.
MaximumFluoride - true.
GIGART - I'm pretty sure that's were the band got their name from.
ImJustRickG - I grabbed the deer image off some photo blog over a year ago. i'd post the link if i still had it.
everyone else - doesn't really matter since i'm not part of your club.
I'm not interested in having another meaningless internet fight with someone hiding behind a keyboard. Sometimes I trick myself into thinking it's fun, but today (and lately) it's just not.
All subject to change of course. :-)
Keep talking though, this is your poster. People all over the world can log on & look at it, all the while reading what a sensitive jackass the artist is.
i'm with gigart. the Mighty 690 was the top 40station for all of so-cal and northern baja in the late 70s-early80s. at any given time they would only have about 24soungs on perminent rotation. pure torture.
i'll just laugh at the other topic on this thread.
Also, is this just a direct lift from one of those Pepin Press books? I mean, obviously I don't care if you steal... I do it all the time. But don't get DEFENSIVE about it. Especially if the type is the main part of what you did on this poster.
"If it wasn't sucky" hahahahahahaha
And get used to it... last week I was at a show and a guy came to the merch table and I asked if he wanted to buy a poster and he said "I would if it wasn't sucky." Did I throw a fit or whine? No. I drank my beer, made fun of his beard and then counted my money at the end of the night.
I'm down for some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, but "boring" and "I'd cut if off" doesn't really help me. I'm just over the pointless comments people leave. It's like you're thinking aloud and just being an ass.
Damn pussy artists that can't take even a little bit of crit. Jeez man, you have a great image here. I make one comment saying you could have done a little better with the text, and you have to go and piss me off.
