I'm digging it. Wonder if there will be any other colors besides yellow?

If I have said it once I have said it a million times, someone should really do a poster with Timbaland, Billy Joe, Kurt Cobain, & Gene Simmons. My 4 favorite humans alive...er...nevermind.

I'm guessing Black Francis (Frank Black) as it sort of resembles him and he has a pixies logo coming out of his head.

According to Slater over on GP, you are correct sir! I really like this poster - it's another one from Slater that I would have a hard time determining that he was the artist from first glance - and I like that in my favorite artists! I'm betting that this will look great in person.

Interesting. I wish I liked their newer stuff better ... but the idea of putting a bunch of your influences on a poster instead of something directly related to the band itself is still kind of cool. Kind of a coded symbolism. Cool concept.

Agreed on the Broomfield bit.....you've got all these great venues and music fans in Denver/Boulder and you have to play to the suburbanites? Sad. Or your tour manager has never been to Colorado. Oasis/Ryan Adams are playing there as well, not worth the drive even though I never miss Ryan Adams....

The print was inspired by notebook scribbles but it's not meant to look like an actual notebook. The faces in the print all relate to Weezer in different ways and they are from top to bottom: Cobain, Frank Black, Timbaland, Billie Joe, Gene Simmons, Mary Tyler Moore, James Dean and Buddy Holly. There's alot of hidden illustrations in this print and I think you all will like it.
art is the only justification for pain :)
