Finally the end of the semester is on the horizon of this week.
I just finished up my color theory final project. The assignment was to do whatever I wanted. That’s always a popular end-of-semester project, but it’s so intimidating! Because I don’t know how much work to do really. And I suspect that I didn’t do enough for this one. I guess I’ll find out at the critique tomorrow. But anyway, what I chose to do was create album art for my friend Marc Schulz who is a DJ by the name of DJ When. I had wanted to do it anyway so it just worked out that I had an open-ended project and no ideas except this. So what follows is the turn-in-for-class-get-it-done-on-time version. I’m sure he and I will sit down and rework things once the semester’s over, before they’re actually printed. Voila.
That’s my La Petite Joy Printing Press logo down there. I started putting the name on almost everything I print for school (illustration projects, silkscreen, photo books…) last fall. It just stuck.
It looks so simple and lame now. But I think that once the shit’s inside, it will serve its purpose well.
I’m happy with it I think. At least for now. It’s just a simple construction of folded card stock for the debut album. Once he’s rich and famous in like a week we’ll upgrade to fancy plastic cases and vinyl and whatnot.
I’ve been so obsessed with isometric grids lately, and even after this I’m still not tired of them. And I tried out some anaglyphs. Christopher thinks 3D glasses should be included, which of course would be cool, but would totally reveal the fact that they don’t work!
By the way I think everyone should know that this is my cat Stevesie right this second, asleep with his head on my knee, tongue halfway out, wif wittle twitching paws:
So these came out like garbage.
But the Iron & Wine show was completely amazing and everything I hoped for except for to hear my two favorite songs of his, Upward Over the Mountain and Boy with a Coin. He played neither, but Caity saw him here and in Jacksonville a couple days ago and he apparently played the former there D:
The opening band, NOMO was really good, too. Very fun.

Due to fucked-up-phonedness, I’m finally downloading all my pictures and saved shit (cute text messages from Jeeves) off the old Curve so it can be replaced. Here are pictures from the concert:
Great quality, right? NOT. I don’t really know how they came out different sizes. Spooooooky.
Of Montreal had a [free for FSU students] show [early] tonight at The Moon, so of course I was there. Twas good stuff, though I hear not as good as last year. I wouldn’t know. James Husband opened which I thought was sort of lame. Their visuals were really fun and inspiring for me because they seemed like simple flash animations I might be able to do (ahh I have a web project to do…). I couldn’t see a lot of the skits or whatever you’d call what was going on on stage but… it seemed interesting. And morbid. But cool. I got a few [bad] pictures on my phone:
