MARCH 2009: FLYER MONTH



Dear Friends:

MARCH. FLYER MONTH.

My plan is to do a flyer/poster for something every night in March of 2009. Every night, all month. 31 flyers in a row.

The project is going to have a very loose narrative that pulls them all together. I'd like that narrative to at least partially be driven by the events. So, I'm not just making drawings that I can throw any old band names on. It'll be one big cohesive thing, with each part standing on it's own.

I'm also interested in doing some for events other than music performance events (ie: rock shows) as part of this. So if anyone knows anyone that might want to have posters made for anything, let me know. In fact, please feel free to forward this info to anybody who might want to be involved.

I'll work out the printing for all the posters and flyers, but I'd like to get paid something for the majority of them. I plan to publish a book of the collection after it's finished.

You can either email me at jgritty@gmail.com ...

Hello, John. This is AK, sometimes bassist for Scarcity of Tanks. I got laid off from my job of 12+ years on Thursday (03/05/09). Maybe you could do a flyer for that, like a dejected-looking wolf carrying a cardboard box with a desklamp and a boombox sticking out of it, in front of a big store...

What I'd really like to do is get real real gone and read "The Forever People" and old issues of "The New Mutants"...
