A few days ago I mentioned that I was unable to get much writing done on account of a photoshop project that my brother asked me to do for him.
The project in question was a poster/flyer for a comedy roast he was going to be doing of a coworker of his.
It took me about 2 days of hard work, but I think I managed to do my brother proud.
At the outset of things, I asked my brother to lay out any particulars or essential elements he had in mind for the poster, to which he responded by telling me to just go nuts and do whatever I felt worked best.
*Sigh* I hate it when people tell me that, ’cause then it leaves me with no one to blame my fuck ups on but myself.
Oh well, I suppose it’s better than someone slinging a laundry list of bullshit demands at you form the outset.
In any case, as you’ll no doubt see above, I did in fact go nuts with this one; hopefully for the better.
Oh yeah, if you’re wondering why the fuck Nicolas Cage is on there, here’s a rundown of my thought process:
I wanted to throw something silly and over the top on the poster, y’know; for effect.
I tapped my temple for a minute or 2, scanning the innumerable pop culture references housed in my skull for something epicly EPIC in terms of over the top-ness.
And wouldn’t you know it, The Wicker Man was the first (and funniest) thing to pop into my head.
That’s why Nic Cage is on the poster.
Another thing mentioning about the poster, is that the badger wearing the samurai helmet is likely going to be the banner/mascot for this blog whenever I decide to start, y’know; paying for it.
My brother suggested that I take the time to make a personal stamp or mark for myself for promotional purposes, with his initial suggestion being something along the lines of a badger face on the M. Bison hat in place of the skull emblem.
While I was totally on board for the Bison Badger emblem idea, (after all, we are brothers) I ended up doing the samurai helmet thing instead ’cause I felt the “Azn” part of the blog title should be represented as much as the “badger” part.
Thanks for the suggestion bro’, got thinkin’ all big n’shit now.
Anyway, in case you are truly fuckin’ dense or something, the names and faces on the poster have been changed in the interest of preserving the subject’s privacy/modesty.
Hope everyone likes the poster as much as I do!
