scheduling and such

Hi. I'm still alive and kicking. Trying to get a bunch of projects wrapped up before they're all due in a week and a half. My biggest time drain at the moment is my portfolio site, though... making thumbnails and clipping masks is beyond annoying. I should have that stuff up soon, and I'll go all link-tastic for my re-design of wikipedia, too.

Oh, and we picked classes:

Digital Video
Writing the Graphic Narrative
Graphic Design Three (with Edwin at 330)
Proposed Independent Study with Don Brandes

Mr. Brandes decided to take me on since the registrar is being a butt about letting me into Illustration Media. Too many freshmens, apparently. Blah. But it'll be cool. He was all "I'll teach you how to draw, it'll be fun!" I think he is as excited as I am.

So, thats it. Do I have any classes with you?

artist cards

A little less than half of my current project for artist books. I'm making artist trading cards, in a series of olde tyme movie stars. Olde Tyme Shoppe. It should be pretty wicked cool when I'm done.
Oh, and a portfolio site is coming soon, too. Hooray!

picnic par-tays

So, I got the Design Center for next year, which is sweet. But on top of that, David & Goliath contacted me yesterday about my portfolio (sent it to them Saturday, got word on Monday, thats amazing!) so picture me freaking out. Just that they are even vaguely interested in my work makes me giddy! I am one lucky duck.

I think it balances my current plague-like state quite well, don't you?

Anyway, the pictures is from my moleskine, I just colored it in photoshop. Huzzah!

magazine spreads

These are some magazine spreads we did recently in Graphic Design. I'm really happy with how they turned out, even though a bit of the top and bottom got cut off in Photoshop for some reason. Oh well.

I'll be posting some pictures from my new book (the clamshell) called "Me, Ben, and our 10 friends." I'm sewing finger puppets and we're photographing them in different places. It will eventually be an accordian fold book, set into a clamshell bookcasing with the collection of 10 finger puppets.
