The Compromise

So the paper I was using for the first posters was great, with a toothy, recycled-ish, absorbent surface. But I didn't buy it the first time, Nicole had run to the store and gotten it while I wrestled with screens and inks.

Last week, I went back to the store with samples and discovered that it was posterboard. Posterboard. Currently, the various colors of posterboard come in that excellent paper while white remains that cheap, slick, junky crap that anyone can find at CVS. Tick-tock. I decided to print the new poster in a similar palette to the HHH3 poster. Unfortunately the red was designed to be yellow-green, so the small text is a bit harder to read than I would have liked. As a bit of a happy accident, many of the lights in the Lucky Dog are red. This really raises the contrast between the blue and the other colors.



I'll be selling these posters (18x24"), not sure when or how or for how much, probably $10-15 apiece. And I'm going to attempt to print these in the intended colors as well. Cheers,
