Poster Boy Bob Masse

Looking for the perfect poster of your favorite band? You won't find any *NSYNC or Britney posters by Bob Masse but you'll still love his work. His psychedelic posters include musicians such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2 and Fiona Apple.

Bob always liked to draw. He was born in Burnaby, Canada and used to have serious competitions with his cousin to see who could draw the most Bugs Bunnies. After graduating, Bob went to art school. He starting hanging out at the local coffee shops which gave him the opportunity to do concert posters for the musicians that came through town. One of his earlier posters was done for a young, new hot shot from New York - Bob Dylan. He wasn't a big name back then and Bob accidentally spelt his last name Dylon.

After a trip to San Francisco during the mid 1960s, Bob's style changed a lot. He got more psychedelic. He took a trip to Los Angeles to do the Collectors' album cover and ended up living there for a few years. During that time, Bob produced posters and album covers.

He returned to Canada and did some commercial artwork. Right now he only does posters which take about three weeks to a month to complete. Why does he only do musicians? "Because what I really like to do is the artwork," he explains. "Basically, I've gotten into this field and I have a marketplace. I'm an artist. I want to do a certain type of art." The one band Bob would love to do his 'certain type of art' for - The Rolling Stones.

Bob's posters are usually around $25 but if you want an autographed one, the price goes up. You'll even find some collectable posters by him. His posters can be found all over the states and in Vancouver, Canada so keep your eyes open for his unique work.

    the man-made construct of "time" is a measure of several factors done for societal organization. make no mistake, though. a man-made measure is not insignificant, for "time" is passing. causes and effects. histories. we are constantly moving, and can never go back.  the earth's rotation today is not the same as the one tomorrow. our bodies are growing. our bodies are decaying. things are moving, things are changing, evolving, happening. time, the concept of it, is not an illusion. we will never stop progressing. time is progression.

    i have had several friends who have cut themselves. i have almost done it, but more out of curiosity towards how it might feel- for empathic or sympathetic reasons. in a deluded way, i think that it is. a cry for attention. but i don't think that is a bad thing. human beings depend on social interaction. we are social creatures. by cutting, putting a physical show of emotional hurt, it's somewhat of a call for help. it's like crying through blood, something far more serious, much like the pain that leads someone there. cutting itself is very dangerous and terrifying for the people that love the cutter. and this is another reason i think cutting is a cry for help- cutters know that. they know the attention that they'll get, the backlash, the possible hate or obsession others will get over them if their cuts are seen.  but they do it anyway. i think if someone were truly hurting and didn't want anybody to know, they'd just suffer in silence, welling within themselves until they go insane. or show their pain through subtle actions.  y'know. the whole "the saddest people are the happiest" thing.
