    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

  • Rock and Roll Art Question

    I am looking for rock and roll design art. I like that kind of design and I want to practice. Where or how can I get some type of samples?

    Google? It's a pretty vague question...

      I'm looking for poster art, the lines and concept are unique in rock n roll art. I can't be more "unvague" because I don't have infomation about it. Plz be helpful next time

        Hold on, let me get my mind-reading hat.

        google is helpful if you cannot be more specific.
        Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

            The music you speak of has it's genesis in 1951 (when Rocket 88 was issued) so we are talking about 60 years of related art.

            Your question was vague. Own up to it and treat people with respect.

            Plz don't be a jerk.

                For me to be more helpful, you need to be more helpful. As seamas mentions, there's a long history of rock and roll, and lots of art to go along with it that spans as many visual styles as there are styles of rock and roll. From simple 2-color record sleeve art from the '50s, to trippy psychedelic music festival posters from the late '60s to early '70s, to neon modern linear graphics in the '80s, to grungy plaid in the '90s, to the bling bling lens flare and outer glows of today.

                Perhaps you can narrow down the time period or a musician in the very least?

                    Plus, I don't think there are many design ideas that are truly unique to rock and roll posters. Concepts are borrowed from and influenced by various other trends and are available and used throughout other forms of visual communication, from ads for beer to packaging for deodorant.

                      I can't believe I actually just typed "plz"...

                      But, here you go. Here is the answer to all your queries.

                            Well, you know what they say about great minds thinking alike.

                            I guess that holds true for us as well...

                              So you "like that kind of design" but don't know what it is?

                              Interesting... is that like saying you like Key Lime Pie without actually tasting it? I mean even if you've had a key lime before and an apple pie, you can't just imagine what they taste like together can you?
                              Wait... maybe you can... it's like some virtual space that you move into that allows the dimensions to merge and create a space that is Key Lime Pie tastes like space?

                              The only reason I can think of that you'd ask about finding something that you say you like.
