    The power in your shop goes out. You waste 10 feet of vinyl because you plotter shuts down halfway through a job. You look outside your shop's window. The sky turns to black. Flashes of blinding white light illuminate the sky as thunderous booms shake the ground beneath your feet.

    The door is blown open by a powerful gust of wind as a cold shiver shoots down your spine. In walks five mysterious shadowy figures. The lights come back on and you are startled to see who stands before you. It's the world famous death metal band: "Glass Half DEADLY!!!":rock-n-roll:

    You recognize the lead singer instantly, as he approaches the counter. Strands of pitch black, long, wet hair hangs in front of his face.

    The rules:
    Design the most brutal poster ever for the death metal band "Glass Half Deadly"

    Poster must include:
    A new logo/lettering style for the band "Glass Half Deadly"
    The name of their new album "Demon of the Clokks"
    It must also say:
    "Album Release Party
    at This is Sparta
    11:00pm - ?
    April 6th"


    Poster must be submitted at 500px X 700px RGB .jpg
    I will pm contestants with my e-mail address. You have until April 5th to submit your design. I will post the designs for voters on the 6th.

    I would encourage using dark imagery like demons, skulls, etc...

    Contestants are:

    Edit to add. Oh, if you want to have fun with this one, you can come up with your own opening band, name it what ever you want, and throw it in there. But remember, they will never be as brutal as GLASS HALF DEADLY!!!

    Design to fit 500 x 700, standard poster size, or "shut up just do something"?

    I was thinking 500 wide by 700 tall so that I can post them here. That is kind of poster shaped. You could design something standard poster size and then scale it down so that I can post it here if you would like.:thumb:

    One more thing. I just added this to the rules. It's not a requirement, but could be fun:
