See there Chew...you really don't know me. Me and Jermaine are friends. I totally respect what he's attempting here even though I don't think he's started off too strong. This one is the stronger of the 2 new painting posters. I'm not jealous of his sucess in any way. He's only gonna get better when he really strts to take control of this new thing of his. At the moment he's riding a wild horse. He'll tame it.
It's not about the art first.
There's a very important thing in designing anything called the gestalt principle. The sum of the parts is greater than the sum of the whole. If you remove a part the compostion becomes weaker. This poster lacks cohesion. It's plug and play. Insert band name here. Place image.
As far as what's a gigposter supposed to look like, ask Jermaine. His words not mine.
