Few people have already told me that my type treatments have been bland. I guess I am afraid of using fonts that are "out there". But i used something al ittle different this time, and took it off the baseline. Any who, this is where ive gotten, now i just have to get some feedback from people and my prof. It still seems to be missing something.

Well, as some of you know, My portfolio class is a little less than... anything really. Its basically do what you want. I came up with this idea to maybe redesign movie posters for some of my favorite movies, and then make a book of my designs. I am not sure if this is a good idea yet, but just so I can say I did something... I tried my hand at redesigning the Desperado poster. I guess its not an amazing poster, but i love it, i love how simple it is and the photo. Not to crazy about the type. Anyway, here is my first try at the redesign.
Well, I am open to all suggestions. I the guitar shapes I drew, along with the 'blood' splatters. The gun is an istock illustration. Now the movie has a very grungy low budget, western feel, and a very bloody feel aswell. I was trying to capture this without using any photos. I like it, but i still dont feel like i have arrived anywhere yet. I will be showing this to my prof tomorrow. I will let you know how it goes... if you care that is. :-)

I am a very bored person today, so ofcourse another stupid long post.
Anyway, I am looking at the upcoming covers for Runaways, and I just wanted to post them, because I think they are great, I can't remember if I have posted them already, and If I have, Ill change it up, with some of my favorite covers.
*Mario 64* Here We GO!
And here are some more of my favorite marvel covers. In No particular order.

Yeah, so, remember those drawings in my sketch book. Well I decided to make a big one. Its pretty obvious that I have been influenced by my roommate who paints similar shapes and is very abstract. Difference being, her stuff usually has a point, and this is basically just Pretty Colors swirling all over with no way to go. Its pretty big, Ill measure it and post another pick when its done. Again its on a stupidly heavy material. Particle board i think its called. Anyway, again its not done, this can be just an underpainting, or I could just let it be. It looks really trippy in person. Please let me know what you be thinking yo.
PS Does anyone know anyone who would buy paintings by the pound. haha.

Well, I don't have any art at the moment to post. But I have a thought that I would like to share. I went for a walk today in the rain, it was lovely. So I passed by NY Central (if you don't know, its an art supply store on 11th ST and 3rd Ave) and I went in and spent some money. :-) it was fun. But what I wanted to share was that, NY Central is the best art store I have been too. They have such a huge selection, especially for being so small. And they have great service, they package everything up for you really nice and all that fun stuff, kind of like they actually care ya know. The Pearl on Canal has a good selection, but it is kind of obnoxious in a way. ANYWAY, that is my random blurb for the day. Maybe I should actually go use those supplies I bought.

Walking around the city I couldn't help and be bombarded with 9/11 reminders. Which always depress me. So I thought I'd post a little something to commerate. This is just something I saw on woostercollective.com . I thought it was nice, so take a look, and go by wooster aswell and read the story they have there, it's a little sad but very inspiring.
