tacosaurus

America[n] or not? I am the Tacosaurus. The Tacosaurus Wrex. I am soon to declare war on America! From this point on, I demand that all tacos of America and her foreign counterparts, are now the sole property of the Tacosaurus. If such decree is not observed by the imbicils, I the Tacosaurus, will make sure each and every American and American sympathist shall meet thy doom in the perils of my dungeonous belly-full-o-tacos.

Your Beloved Despot, Tacosaurus. Muahahahaha.

LOL, I think you may be the weirdest designologuer yet! Your work is so refreshing. Nice to see something without brushes.

is this 3d or did you swipe it from somewhere?

Corvus

Kinda cool 3D background, but the Tacosaurus has too much light, don’t you think?

tacosaurus

Fashionvictim, Swiped that Background from some architect’s site I think, I don’t remember.

“A good artist borrows, a great artist steals.” -forgot who. Corvus, The dino light was darker on my workspace, when I saved for web, he got a lil lighter, didn’t even notice. Thanks for pointing that out.

Enjoy my wrath.

Aarseth

Does the Tacosaurus have udders?

Sorry. This Designologue is strange, but I think you are making a valid point. Is surrealism a smart way to deliver a social commentary? Obviously it’s not the most straightforward way, but that just makes it all the more interesting. I will be watching this one carefully.

tacosaurus

she spins around. she’s sexy like a reptile.

tacosaurus

To tell you the truth….

most of you were not ready for this image. this shit is not on your welcomage addendum. you have no clue what is actually going on between the title and the image. the surrealist quality was non existant. A mere afterthought on an intangible aftermarket. I am the Tacosaurus. I am unmarketable. As Funk.

The Tacosaurus lashes out in rage with a sign he holds so nobley,“stay strong america!”

Settle down tacogeek.

We’re all just as interested in you as you are… please give us more. I for one can’t wait for more insight.

Ok, I have been earnestly gazing at this for a while….hmmmmm. Still thinking taco….

A Tacogeek? Call me what you will. But to you Ingrates, I will from this point on and forever be known ONLY as Del Tacosaurus Wrex, or Tacosaurus for short. If I am referred to as Taco, I will ask you to please make it plural. Because yes I like tacos, and no I am not single.

Tacosaurus. fereverfervent.

tacosaurus

This was a quick one.

I had the ferocious Fire Sauce™ from Taco Bell™. It is known to be quite a noxious gaseous agent, as well as an adequite missile guidence interupter powered by processors from the Sega™ Master System™, which have been implanted in my gastro-intestinal system as a sort of personal defense attempt.

All bases covered…report. Cleanup on isle ten. Some one stepped on a tube of KY™. Get a mop on that on the double…Is KY™ water soluble…Better not get the mop…CLOSE DOWN ISLE TEN…QUARANTEEN ISLE TEN…TERRORIST SLIP FALL ATTEMPT…I REPEAT…TERRORIST SLIP FALL ATTEMPT.

p.s.

surry bout’the dog.

inman

This is so reFresh Prince of Bel Airing.

The design is subpar in my opinion but it is almost irrelevant and completely secondary to the engaging conversation.

tacosaurus

beyond subpar.

this shit is straight up whack. with an H. Fun is the game..

despot: look it up

i’d be careful glorymachine… DESPOT is one of his “pen-names” persay.

he’s going to have some fun with that. nice image, for some reason, i guess in response to tacos last image, i’m wanting to see a fart cloud “tooting” out of this dino too. ahh well, whatever works.

glorymachine

Yeah, thought I would take this in a new direction. I felt like it was getting too, “my dad can beat up your dad”. So I did like this anti-tacosaurus propoganda poster thing with a communist feeling.

inman

I just visited Zombo.com with the sound up for the first time. My little brother, who was also viewing Zombo.com and felt quite welcome there, had what seemed to me a foolish question, “What is this?” he asked.

Obviously, “this” was Zombo.com.

I think this may be a call to redouble your branding efforts.

tacosaurus

Anything can happen at Zombo.com. The unattainable is unknown.

tacosaurus

My own poster! My Font too! Considering that I am a dinosaur. GWB is the motherfunkin’ MAN. Last time I checked, he would be the DESPOT. I tried to pass gas to eliminate him. But if POSTER WARS is what you want.

“He suffers from delusions that he is the democratically elected President of the USA. Do not approach him, he is nuclear armad and dangerous. Act responsibly and contact the nearest police station.” -the otherposter.

tacosaurus

The Tacosaurus has the greatest artists on his side. His propaganda department makes yours look like shit.

bearskinrug

That’s a nice font, tacosaurus…

RevDrLuv

I would like to have seen you apply this poster to the side of a building or one of those wooden construction wall thingys that always says “post-no-bills” but nobody listens. You know, so it looks like someone just glued a ton of em up there and covered up all the other posters/flyers.

Nice font though and I especially like that illustration of Dubbya on the upper right.

tacosaurus

I don’t believe that posters should be put up in photoshop. They should be put up on the streets. Not on the internet in a fake picture.

RevDrLuv

Then maybe you should have printed em out and done some vandalism. And then take a picture of it so we could all see. And then provide a link where we can download, print and distribute in our own cities. This dsnlg could have been a whole movement.

tacosaurus

You know, that is a good Idea. Gimme’ the money to do it. Any idea how much that would end up costing me, and if I got caught, there would be court fines and … you know what? Ain’t worth it. Just a dsnlg that could have been twice as good.

fashionvictim

man tacosaurus, i am disappointed. thought you were more of a rebel than to be afraid of a little guerilla flyering. ;D

side note: critique: i really like the poster you designed. i don’t think the other stuff on the sides is necessary. might have been interesting to see the entire frame, the poster, maybe horizontal format to fill the space. sometimes it’s a little difficult to design a poster in a horizonatal format, but I think this could have worked. really nice type, you should give it to me, or consider selling it. money can be great.

tacosaurus

To tell you the truth… this site itself is like “flyering”

You wonder why it is so effective?

No matter what, it works! Good Advertising works just as well as Bad Adveritising. When it all comes down to it, you remember both.

Yeah the repeats on the side, you could go without. I was drunk, I didn’t care what was on the side. I felt awkwerd posting a poster alone, so I added some other posters to compare it to. I hoped maybe you could read it, but as I said, I was drunk. Drunk is fun. Be more drunk. If I could wish something for you all, it would be that you were drunk. Drunkeness brings me joy.

See you at the bottom of the bottle. Tacosaurus.

tacosaurus

Tacosaurus, why do you talk so much?

Because I have great clerical skills. GIVE ME A FUCHING JOB> I do stained glass for a livin’ gimme’ a break. Hooterin.n.a.hollerin.com

glorymachine

Still thinking……..

glorymachine

I got lazy on this one. Still trying to find out how the images went from a T-Rex and Taco Bell to President Bush on a poster? Hmmm, I just took it to the next level.

Notice: Check out the tacosaurus phone number written on the wall. LOL, that was fun.

Put in the Del Taco since Tacosaurus keeps calling himself Del Tacosaurus or something like that. Put my name over the wash your hands sign becuase I am guilty of not doing that with this DSLNG. Had to put the poster on the wall just for Dr.Rev.Luv. That one is for you pal. Plus, the poster only seemed appropriate for a trashy place like a dirty fast food restaurant restroom. I think I would rather eat with dirty hands…

i like this one glory… at first glance, it looks like the dell taco sign is on an open and swinging door… i love the grit and grime of the bathroom… and seeing Bush’s stupid face right above a urinal really turns me on… it almost implies, that if you were out of toilette paper while in this dungeon of a shit whole bathroom, you could rip the poster off the wall and whipe your ass…

tacosaurus

You wanna get into America[n] or not? Graffiti is a major topic. America is good for only two things. Both of them are original art forms. Modern Graffiti and Jazz. Most would argue Graffiti’s relevance, but as a product of its culture, I know the truth. This is a piece I did inspired by GWB. Oaftar is my name and kicking camel ass is may game. I am a playful republican though, don’t get me wrong. Props to Circus.cbs the original Gangstah Fo Gawd. Backyard love, I’m out. St.pats.tacosaurus.wrex.

-> zero photoshop.

bearskinrug

That’s pretty f-in cool, taco!

mrshape

good grief. i am getting blown away by the DSNLG’s posted today…nice stuff tacorama.

tacosaurus

Funny what happens when a designer starts doing design because of spray paint. All the fumes to the head have certainly had their affect on my design, in good and bad ways. At least I know I can take whatever is done on a computer to at least 10-15 other mediums. Or just rock them alone. It is nice knowing that you will never have enough money to do all the things you are capable of. It is satisfaction, but process tends to prevail. Concepts linger, days get shorter, your mind tends to wander. Wondering why? Constantly plagued by meloncholic madness. To be a rennaissance man in these days is to comit suicide through art. Cut throat handshakes and dirty dealings in over abundance. Drives me to strive to starve, there is no romance left in wealth. That is why I hope I get rich quick and fall into line with the rest of America.

tacosaurus

Ohh yeah…i forgot… this was all done at night. Twist in the plot. Glory->slap your fake photoshop tag on the camel and lets call it quits. Your turn to start one up.

tacosaurus

Funny story goes along with this.

As I was painting the Elephant Bat script, I was standing on a cinder block. If you look closely between the bottoms of the F and T in Oaftar, there is water pipe coming up out of the ground where a hose was attached. As I was starting to step down from the cinder block, I started to fall. I stepped right on to the pipe, breaking it, causing a 15’ geyser. I shit you not. FIFTEEN FEET. I had to scramble to find a stick to plug the pipe, soaking wet. Kind of embarassing, but funny as hell after the fact. If you look even closer you can see the stick jammed in the pipe.

glorymachine

hmmm……

What do you say to a verbose dino? I am speechless.

cowpiesurprise

Nice finish from both of you. Very striking imagery. I’m especially fond of the pyramid eye doubling as the elephant’s eye in Image 7. The added dollar sign ($) seems unnecessary, but its presence is innocuous enough. Well done!

glorymachine

Thanks…

bearskinrug

Glorymachine, That’s fantastic! Is that an actual origami piece? Great job!

tacosaurus

You just got put on some secret service hitlist with that one Glory. Nice knowing you.

Aarseth

glorymachine that is effing AWESOME. This is going in my favorites.

glorymachine

Well, thank you very much bearskinrug and Aarseth. I thought the image went well with the previous image and also the comments that the dino made.

tacosaurus

I am interested, alongside Bearskinrug, as to the origin of this origami. Did you do it? Or did you find a picture of it? That is a tight lil’ elephant.

Sinplexc

Great conclusion!
