if you know me, hopefully by now you know i have a "luv" for pixar.
i look forward to the day when one of their new movies come out to see how cool the the movie looks. i am kinda silly, i have to watch movies i really like twice. the 1st time: watch movie and drool at how cool stuff looks and think about how some of the cool stuff is done. programing etc. also study some details, look for fun things. kinda pay attention to the other regular stuff all movie. the 2nd time: watch the movie, just to watch and enjoy. i can't help from doing it. i get really sucked into its cool graphics etc. the first time!

here is a cool poster i saw using the wall-e character. yeah june 27th.

day off.

so I am only posting this to remind others that sometimes it is good to take a day off. yesterday was my first day off since the quarter began in january. anyways, it was wonderful, went and got coffee and it was a little rainy. good hang out day. looked for books and just hung out. i finally got to start my new book "the learners" by chip kidd. so far so good.

one good quote i liked so far...
"I'm a graphic designer... I pretty much see the world as one big problem to solve. one typeface, one drawing, one image at a time."

i'll post more as i read.
one more paper to write and then quarters over. and then it's on to play with my letterpress over spring break. below is a shot while drinking coffee and then a shot of my book.

the unconventional oddities of san luis obispo.

oh illustration how i hate and love you.
this little gem, was a little book/story. in my case, an adventure for my illustration. i attacked my project in an "unconventional" (my favorite word of the moment, along with "mundane") way. the project, at first, was like pulling teeth because I was frustrated and unsure of what to do. i luckily got some inspiration and then found a way to mesh my design-y-ness and my doodling style. over all, i was very happy with how the project turned out. i think i might make an edition of this book over spring break, so let me know if you would like one.
