Stay Tuned

Over the next few weeks I'll be reviving this blog. Once it's off the slab, it will be filled with inspirations, aspirations, recent projects, cool links, free events, visual references, tutorials, and rants. Pretty much, anything that catches my fancy.

17 again

How do you learn? I'm really curious. I personally love to jump into something without reservation and then after experimentation, learn the rules or basics. I'm literally 17 again. Everything is new and exciting!

It's over!

The decade that exulted mediocrity is finally over! It's a new year and I'm filled with hope. I have some secret resolutions that I'll soon surprise you with.

Updates Cupcakes

Things have been really busy lately. Along with getting a volunteer curator position at one of the coolest places on Earth (the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art,) I have two other internships with magazines. Since these don't pay, I have to get another job as well. What else? I've gone to events at the Art Directors Club and the AIGA, so have plenty to share on new artists I've discovered and interesting lectures I've sat through. Also, a few projects/sketches to share, cool links I've found, and blah blah blah... oh and pictures too! That's it for now.

Cracks me up every time

My friend Luisa posted this recently. Would you believe (working retail) that I have had to work with customers like this?

Last month I went to see Greg Brunkalla speak at the Apple store in Soho (NYC.) He talked about the (above) project which involved a hand made/painted zoetrope. He said that the trend for fashion companies is to step away from doing runways and move toward more distinctive/engaging ways of showcasing their new lines. Temperley's spring line happened to be circus themed, so the concept was to have models performing circus acts in the season's clothes played on a zoetrope in public. The individual stills (from the sequences) were used in Temperley's advertising. Apparently, motion graphics have gotten so fine in quality that hi res stills can be used at large sizes as would a normal photo. He also mentioned that most of today's "live action" music videos are done for free.

I hate infomercials but

I love those funny dramatizations where the people can't get the simplest tasks right. Someone out there is mind-linked with me and has made this funny montage of incompetence. Enjoy!

Long time no type

I've been trying this start-five-posts-at-the-same-time-thing that hasn't been working out so well. I start 'em, but I'm not ending them. By this weekend I hope to have some cool stuff up. They'll possibly include events attended, lessons learned, and fun projects. In the mean time, I just became aware that Jessica Hische (of Daily Drop Cap, award show, and top design magazines fame) will be speaking at my college tomorrow. I'll be sure to share any details. Below are some links to her stuff.
