Wow! It’s been a while…

Anyway, ‘just found out from a friend that I won 2nd place in the ACP’s 2010 Design of the Year – Illustration category for my illustration in SCAN Magazine, the quarterly magazine put together by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus. Had no idea this was even entered. ‘Nice surprise on a Sunday afternoon.

Previously, I mentioned that I had completed another illustration for SCAN, the magazine published by students at SCAD-Atlanta. Here is that illustration. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out. I’m also glad that it was attached to an article by my friend Gray Chapman, who is an excellent writer with articles published in Paste Magazine, the Atlantan, and other fine publications. I’d say we make a pretty kick ass team.

Speaking of which, Gray and I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with our BFAs this weekend! ‘feels good to have accomplished that. Now to keep learning and creating. Tomorrow, I start working as a freelance designer for Matchstic. They are a fine group of people and have produced some incredible work. I am excited to learn from them and be an asset to their already strong team.

I’m working on another illustration for SCAN, the quarterly magazine that the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus puts out. This one was a fun challenge and I think it turned out pretty cool. I’ll post the full version here when the publication is released. I like doing these illustrations and hopefully I’ll be able to do more in the future. Truth be told, I’d really like to sharpen my “illustration” skills. I’m sometimes tempted to start calling myself an illustrator as well as a designer, but then I look at the work of much more talented friends (*coughdylanmoorecough*) and I’m not so sure what I do can be considered illustration.

Dear friends, enemies, colleagues, strangers, etc…

I am alive. Summer quarter has ended and I escaped relatively unscathed. I start Fall quarter in two weeks. Also, I’m excited/honored to announce that I’ve been offered an internship at Adult Swim. Hi-jinks will ensue.

Don’t be a stranger (I promise to do the same…,) let’s stay in touch.



Recent Work: SCAN Magazine

Hello, Hello… ‘finally getting acclimated to life back in the USofA and becoming a productive human bean. ‘just in time, too… Summer Quarter starts this coming Monday. I decided to take classes this Summer in order to be able to graduate in the Spring of 2010.

Anyway… just wanted to let all (six) of you know I was still alive. Here’s an illustration I completed while I was in France for the debut issue of our campus’s new quarterly magazine. The illustration is for an article about the different philosophies of Oscar Widle and Diogenes. I used printing ink and a brayer to create the background. For the skin tone of the two figures, I scanned a blue textured paper, that was laying around in the printmaking lab on campus.

Home again, home again…

The rumors of my return are true. I have made it back home, into the United States of America. I have spent the last three nights kicking jet lag’s ass (more than likely it’s the other way around.) The culture shock has not been as bad as I had anticipated, but I do find myself missing certain aspects of southern French culture. In the meantime, I am busy chilling the eff out. ‘had lunch with some good friends on Wednesday and visited friends at school both Wednesday and Thursday. Today’s agenda includes catching a screening of the new Star Trek movie and then maybe a few “honey do’s.” I am sure I will be sharing more about my trip to France in the coming days… but for now I’m just decompressing a bit.

This is kind of cool, though, and relates to my trip in some way: Last night, Megan and I met her uncle John at Museum of Design Atlanta for an exhibit opening and wine tasting. (No, the wine drinking is not the connection I am making.) The exhibit was called The Graphic Imperative and was a collection of politically and socially aware posters over the past few decades. To my great surprise and delight the exhibit showcased two posters by Alain LeQuernec. ‘don’t know if I mentioned this before but Monsieur LeQuernec is an internationally known poster designer who came to our campus at Lacoste and gave a lecture. In addition, my Type 2 class had the great honor of having our posters critiqued by him. Needless to say, his feedback was very helpful.

More soon, including some recent design work…

As part of the program here at SCAD Lacoste, there is a contest for the students to design a poster for a near-by museum of corkscrews (“tire-bouchon” in french.) The prize is 1000 Euro, however this year two winners were selected. The good news is that I was one of them. This was a nice addition to finishing up the quarter and selling a print in our big gallery show.
