I always dug the layouts in Forties ads, they always seemed to stand out more than other ads in the mag.As a kid I emulated Chris Miller but once Public Domain dropped I instantly set my sights on Ray Barbee. Ray just oozes style and can do no wrong in my book.Also dig the spin on C.H.U.D.(Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller), that movie scared the crap out of me as a kid.
Forties had some great ads. Most of the Deluxe ads are like that. Usually I'll pick one or two things out of a mag to scan and it is really easy to want to use nothing but Anti-Hero or Forties or Real. I try to mix it up with a bunch of different companies, but that doesn't always happen. I've been chilling on Deluxe stuff for the last couple weeks because I felt I put too many of them up a month ago. Then I saw this Ray Barbee joint and couldn't resist. I was trying to figure out what that word was and couldn't. It makes sense now. I'm betting Tommy G. had something to do with that.
great ad. didn't they have a series of ads that were just high resolution pictures of tools? I think I have an old mag with a wrench. And I saw skateboardingis... had one with a gun. I didn't realize what a giant role TG has in the krooked art direction until recently.
