I got a ton of great feedback on my post yesterday about a poster project I’m working on for a class.Thanks to all of you, I’ve come up with the best solution for this poster. I’ll share the new version when I’ve got it designed. I only have one shot at it, so I can’t re-do it once it’s done. You’ll see what I mean when I post it (though, I’m going to have to make you click through to get the image because it’s going to be NSFW). You told me that you saw a brain (it’s a butt. and there’s even an asterisk in a strategically planned location). And I still think that the poster in this form is too cutesy. It needs to be kinda gross.
However, I think I’m going to print #15 and turn it in anyway (along with my new solution) because I really like the lettering that I did (and spent way too long on it!), and I think it’s a cool-looking poster. Although, I’m a huge fan of both of these versions (printing the top version on a skin-textured paper):
But, all is not lost! I’ve discovered that I can do some pretty sweet psychedelic lettering, and I’ve been tapped to do another poster for the Roosevelt Summer Sundays concert series this year. I think psychedelic rock poster typography will fit perfectly.
To add even more excitement to my marvelous Monday, I won a giveaway. I never win giveaways! Even though I host a bunch of them. I think I’ve only won a few.

Beautiful! I’m already inspired.
