Distgustingly rich with awesomeness.
A Melvins poster that might actually be hung on a wall... drymount the band if they say anything negative about it too.

Funny, overall the poster reeks of Burwell, but the clown's face, looks like Kinsey's handywork.

This could be a good piece to frame out the band name, looks like the dimensions will allow...

This would be a good poster to like.......get. And frame........forever.

Because I like music more than art. And I like the Melvins. And I like metal.

And I would probably NOT take a knife to it and cut out the band name.

:o :shock:

Well the use of color (not being local color of course) is quite similar actually (good guess!). The use of hard expressive lines varying in thickness (almost cartoonish) are quite similar... The only element in the composition that gives the image a sense of depth is the varying thickness of those lines. Although, just because you do not see what I see (which is where some artist take inspiration from or 'bites') does not mean it is not there.

The poster is creepy looking. I like it. :twisted:

When I first saw it I thought of John Wayne Gacy as a clown. :o
