Does This Graphic Concept Suck?



It's 1:30 a.m. and I threw this together real quick after pulling a 12-hour shift and I'm feeling like I'm stoned or hallucinating or something because my chronic sinus infection I got going on is kicking my ass.

I swear to all that is good and pure and holy...I feel like my head's gonna explode into a giant ball of foul-smelling pus.

There's a graphic concept for ya.

Anyhoo...what y'all think of my latest cartoonish crap?

As usual, the image is a print screen grab-type-thang I stole from a video 'cuz I thought it was cool and then I made it my own.

Sorta.

It's an idea I'm thinking about running with and maybe using photos I actually take with my own camera and manipulating them and making them more original.

Sound like a plan...or should I fuck off?

    1. Thanks, and...yes.

      I am just like Olaf Yolk except I don't have nubile sultry models or fancy schmancy and costly digital imaging gear or his talent.

      Other than that we are exactly the same and we are blood brothers.

      Maybe.

    1. Maybe if I get some time to manipulate a photo I take to use in this concept. I can't in good conscience make and sell a shirt from the above image 'cuz it is a screen grab I stole from a TV series.

    1. I know...but I think our hero in the picture had already determined what was beyond his target and that he wanted to destroy something...so it's cool. ;)

  7. From a communications perspective:

    What's the 'take-away' you want viewers to get? Comfort, discomfort, assurance, security, insecurity, light (good), dark (bad), ...?

    The image, text, key (low-key, high-key) all need to work together to communicate a unique sustainable differentiable concept if this piece is meant to reinforce your 'brand'.

    Only in the context of understanding the 'take-away' can the piece be viewed as good (unambiguous and consistent take-away across the target demographic) or bad (leaves the viewer confused, or unsure of what you're trying to accomplish).

    Hope this helps!

    1. Ha! My shit is a putrid stream of unconsciousness...kinda like an Allman Brothers free-form jam session...only not as cool.

      What you say makes a lot of sense, and I heard the same thing from my English/literature/journalism teachers.

      I've said it before. My crap is pretty much off-the-cuff and spontaneous, and I kinda want folks to create their own interpretations and meanings from the crumbs I give to them.

      I guess I wanna stir some emotions, buck folks up, motivate them, and keep them angry.

      Or something.

      Maybe.

      But again, thanks for your comments. Much appreciated.

  11. I'm late to the party Zoomie, but it is a great graphic, it would be a great bumper sticker, although a large one, ha.
    If you can put out this quality of work with a headful of snot I can not imagine what you could do when you feel good. ;)
    I kinda like the revolver, and you are the III's top,number 1, morale booster so keep up the good work...no pressure...;)

Feel free to comment away with your bad-ass selves.

Cursing and foul language is fine...even encouraged here. In fact, I think cussing is fucking wonderful.

Just remember...this is MY house, and I will not be insulted or maliciously messed with here.

Good-natured ribbing is cool, but if you and I don't have some kind of previous relationship, you had best mind your fucking manners or I will relegate you to the intardnets dustbin for being a cunt.

To know me is to love me.

Or something.

Maybe.
