I sent my WAE poster I made a week or so ago to my friend Bret in Chicago who is a super creative graphics monster. I wanted him to turn that poster into a flyer for a show WAE is playing in August. All I said was that I wanted the poster to look vintage. He then proceeded to pump out 4 of the coolest flyers my little eyes have seen. My artwork almost degrades the flyers. "Man, look at that flyer! Except, can we get that shitty drawing out of there? It's distracting me." I know that's what you're thinking!
I was supposed to pick one flyer, but I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked better...so I picked two.

This is a poster I did for a band I'm currently in. They like camels and asses. I see no issue here. Well, maybe the camel part. I could do without those. They are nasty animals. I suppose you need camel imagery when your songs are about Egypt, and the desert, and karate, and tube socks. Basically, this band makes no sense at all. Maybe that's why it's so damn fun!
To the poster.
I wanted it to look like a vintage style pin-up. I, however, suck eggs when it comes to all things graphic design. When it comes to putting text on a sheet, I'm as useless as my wife. Ha! I can only say that because I know she won't read this. I'm kidding. She's not THAT useless. Anyway, I enlisted the help of a friend of mine who is an expert in graphic design. He is turning this into a retro band poster for a show WAE has in August. I will post his design when he gets it back to me.
