NEW YORK NEWBIES
It is great to be in a new city, especially New York City, and opens to doors to meeting new faces, but got some news that could make it all a dream come true. My friends from art school Greg & Jess are planning to come to New York City as well. Greg needs to get out of New Hamphire and Jess put in her two weeks at her gig in Rhode Island, so it’s not all talk. Hellz yeah!
MORE FROM THE ART FRONT
Got two new ideas for art projects that popped into my head. One involves temporary street art. I don’t love don’t street art, as I don’t live for the adventure like others, but this would be friendly street air, and interactive, and other be washed away I’d say a day or two later. The other is an illustration project, or characters as I want to build my illustration...
GOING TO BE A GOOD WEEK
Why? I have no idea, but I have a idea this might be a good week for some reason. Maybe I’m just hopeful of something good happening on the job front, or another front which likes to stress me out. I guess we’ll find out on Friday.
DID YOU SAY CUTE!?
I studied art history throughout college, but still have lots to learn in my young life. Next time I might spend the twenty bucks and the afternoon in the MoMA to learn as many facts as I can fill up with. I have be a little snotty and list my favorite quotes I heard this afternoon while seeing the best display of art in my life. “These (Warhol’s) are cute” “This...
Tomorrow I have another day off as it is slow at the magazine this week, but it finally gives me time to do something New York-ish. My list is long for things I really want to do. I want to see a Broadway play, and finally go to the top of the Empire State building, and the Statue of Liberty. Tomorrow I am going to take advantage of the free four hours on Friday’s at the MoMA, and if it...
NEW ART PROJECTS
Really excited to work on my two new art projects. One involves lots of staples, which I have thought about for some time. I think I finally know how I’ll be doing it. The other I thought about the other day while flipping through a magazine. I don’t do much painting but these will be. They will be a set of three, as I like a series, with lots of bright colors. Of course they...
I NEED A CAMERA!
When I get a job, someday, I keep telling myself, and everyone around me that I need to get myself a great camera. When you do a lot of print deisgn, you want to have great photographs, and something, I mean everything about a hand-held camera doesn’t do what you want, nor seem professional. All the time I come a long a photo (like this one day:...
DEAR CRAIGSLIST DESIGN JOB POSTERS
Rant alert. Job hunting is hard, and it even means using Craigslist to see if they have any good jobs on there. But, fuck the posters who are still looking for people who are ‘fluent’ in Quark need to stop. No one uses that dated program to design. Update yourself, and then go update your software.
METAL IS OK IN MY BOOK
I went to my first metal show last night in Williamsburg. Thank god i remembered to bring my black jacket to blend in. I don’t really know how good of a show it was. I want to say it was a good show, but i don’t know if those Bud Light’s were swaying my decision. The band was flinging their hand around in circles, made-out with the mic, and didn’t sing a note, but I have to...
