Hehe, or I'll make one for the two of you

Whyyy, we don't want to steal your soul with all the fotogiraffos
Yes, Travis Smith makes the best covers. I'm a fan of his work.
travis smith is a load of balls
we hear you bambi, we hear you
vaughan oliver was the man, peter saville another, and todays dirk rudolph, pisses all over the mckeans and shallow photoshop smiths
My favourite is Edward Gorey.
A Future Unremembered Poet
of the Seventeenth Century
accepts a Christmas Cookie
from the Great Veiled Bear
thats illustration ya stupid woman, rip off of Beardsley too
woeful typography, like something from a 1920's back street
everyday we celebrate the pleasure to learn some more about ikeaboy! :Spin: :Spin: :Spin:
i looked at some of saville's work. very nice things there, some of them at least.
but you can't compare it to travis smith, it's a totally different style
And who gives a fuck, I'm talking 'bout motherfuckin' Falco and shit!
CD cover, illustration, I'm talking about style I like, if it's a rip off, who cares? I like it. I like it cause it's a rip off and twenties woeful typography, yes.
the problem with smith is that he is repetetive
you're right, maqus, there's no accounting for tastes.
who's gonna tell you you're wrong and he/she is right when it comes to liking something
more artists tend to be repetitive
ah ffs, lets get one thing cleared here, peter saville is a designer, smith is an illustrator, its not just covers peter savilles work ends with, pfff
look at vaughan oliver, early 80's , no floppshop, just pure self intuition and emotional response to sound, i fucking know right!
besides, smith is just another one of many bastardised dave mckeans, if you want to see whats 'now' in this area, Dirk Rudloph would be a start
well depends what you call 'artists' . painters? illustrators? well most have a similar visual vocabulary in their work, on the other hand, thing is these days, someone picks up a pirate copy of floppyshop, calls themselves a designer, in the wrong hands with no foundation, chaos, ah it looks good this will do, slap a bit of 'default' typeset on it and it will be grand
education and awareness, common sense really
