Not sorry for the two weeks, but sorry this isn't exactly baseball card related... I'll tie it in the best I can:
I have always been a big fan of old propaganda posters. When I was in Rhode Island for the holidays last year, I came really close to buying the cool Red Sox posters they had at Dunkin Donuts. (mmmmm... Dunkin Donuts. Just can't get 'em here in San Diego.) I figured they would get trashed in my luggage, so I opted not to get them.
I figured I would steal (errr... borrow) the idea for some Padres posters or custom cards. The idea came and went. The new baseball season started, and I was no longer in the mood to make Padres posters. (Hey, at least we finished strong.) In the last week or so I started seeing the cool, new Topps propaganda-style cards. Man, I missed the boat on that one...
Or did I???
The idea is old hat to you baseball card folks, but to my music friends it was "a great idea". Well, shucks. I guess I am just cutting edge like that. I have been pretty busy churning out propaganda-style music posters. They aren't as cool as limited edition screened prints, but for MS Paint they are pretty good.
No. Rob Deez is not a communist (Actually, I am not aware of his political leanings). The "hammer and sickle" is actually a logo I designed. I call it the "hammered and cycle." It would make more sense if you listen to "the Bicycle Song." It is on his My Space... Jussayin.
