The character breaking out of the "O" and the phrase "For the Gusto are from a movie called CB4, which stars Chris Rock. The character can't make it as a rapper and end up getting tangled in gangster rap trying to make money.
A friend of mine who organized the event came up with the idea, which i liked. Somehow his idea and mine crashed into this...
It doesnt make a whole lot of sense, and maybe someone spraypainting while doing the moonwalk would have been a better idea. I think people would have associated it more with this type of event. I guess this works, too.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find my camera for the show, (the photo here was e-mailed to me) so i don't have anything from the other artists at the show. A photographer from the City Weekly was there so we may see something pop up in one of the coming editions. I did overhear that this may turn into a monthly thing...

Everyone's favorite music journal, Waxpoetics is putting out their jazz issue this month and how better to partner up and celebrate the two? After speaking with some of the nice guys running the magazine, they've allowed us to promote their product and make it one big party! It's not an official Waxpoetics event, but is surely condoned and approved.
About the Design:
When starting to put this together, there was no finished product in mind, but more of a general feel of how I would like it to turn out in the end. After looking around at some old jazz and psych covers/posters I started putting things together. The elements were drawn in illustrator and then imported to Photoshop for some easy transparency. At that point, things started to fit together and make some sort of cohesive idea. Being a music fan myself made this poster really fun to work on, and came a little more naturally than other things I've worked on.

Any avid record digger, collector, or DJ will testify to the ubsurd amount of Herb Alpert records you come accross when you're digging for vinyl. It becomes more and more frustrating when you go to you're favorite thrift store looking for that Velvet Underground with the orginal bannana sticker and get slammed with 50 copies of the Tijuana Brass instead!
