Re: Killer Road Trip


Based on "vinyl killer van" record players. They're toy vans that have a record needle and a speaker built in and they drive right around the record. In this design the road is the record.

Oh Jeez man, those things were horrible. GMV for dredging up old memories that must be dashed with tequila.

Haha. We weren't allowed to touch the LPs due to the eldests smashing habit (so he was 6 so what, memories die hard), yet we owned a device that encouraged the desire. D'oh

It couldn't have been worse than those flimsy records that they'd pack in magazines. I'm not sure I was ever able to successfully play those things.

Thanks. Yes, it is a photoshop file. My working file has an ungodly number of layers.

Thanks My goal with both of my designs this week was to make bold color choices. I'm really happy with how this one came out.

Haha, the square ones with perforated edges? Man, when I was a kid, I thought that was the height of technology--they put a RECORD IN THE PAPER!!!!

Really nice work on this

Wow! You are a fountain of talent. The colors and halftoning are amazing, but I also love the atmosphere of a road trip you've created here. You seriously need to print here soon.

Thanks for posing the vid!

I was watching the documentary "Scratch" the other day and it gave me the idea for this design. Here is a video from of Yoga Frog, from the movie, showing his VK Van. I totally forgot about those things, but thought it would make a cool design.

This strikes an effective balance between your tighter designs and the sketchy style you have recently introduced. Good to see you are finding an audience for these designs odysseyroc.

It's great that this is jammin' up the charts (and funny that I initially mistook the mountainside on the left for an abstract human figure leaping joyfully in the air, arm outstretched - which is at least a happy mistake to make), but c'mon, all y'all that voted for this need to give some love to the baby b-boy too...

This is pretty much fantastic. I'm not in love with the way you did the hills/mountains on the horizon, but everything else is wonderful! +1
