Remember all the way back in 2009 when the Omega Code poster craze swept the net and everyone jumped on board to create their own (including myself)? Well a few of those posters are now actually available for purchase at Society 6. I have to admit that I my personal favorite (out of the grouping for sale) belongs to Tom Muller.
I think I may have posted this before but was sent an email reminder this morning, so oh well, there is updates in the portfolio of Kult House. I am digging the Omega Code poster.
I finished my Omega Code poster today and sent it off to their open call for submissions. I was super impressed with what people were creating and really wanted to be a part of it. I designed the poster to specs, sized at B1 (close to 24 x 36 inches) at 300 dpi. There were close to 80 layers in and it weighed in at almost 7 gigs. Photoshop wouldn’t even allow me to save it at one point so I had to go back through and crunch everything just to be able to save it.
I actually really like their music and wanted to create something a little darker that suggested mysticism. I felt like something like that was really appropriate for their sound. A lot of my work used to slant to the darkside, and I have lightened up a lot in the last few years. Mellowing with age I guess but I still remember my rock days of lore. So when called upon I can bring the heavy metal thunder.
Just saw this at Reform Revolution and I was pretty excited because I wanted to get in on this and now you can too:

Anyone remember that kick ass Tool album that also had a name you didn’t really know what to make of.
23 artists were invited to illustrate the artwork for the project. Artists and designers like Joshua Davis, Si Scott, Mike Cina, Michael Paul Young, Mate Steinforth, Matthew Curry, Nelson Balaban, Tom Muller, Motomichi Nakamura, Danny Franzreb, Robert Lindström, Andreas Pihlström, Chris Hewitt, Hello Hikimori, Sebastian Onufszak, Animatório, Colletivo, Nacionale, Unstru, Tomás Peña, João Oliveira, Peter Jaworowski, Umeric and Doomedo.
You can learn more about the release via Omega Code’s Facebook, MySpace, Orkut and Twitter.
Lets just get out with it already and call 2009 the year of the triangle.
