Hey, there. How’s it going. Loooooonnnng time no talk.

Yours truly has just been plugging away at work and trying to save up to take some trips this summer. And, in the meantime, another front page I put together made the Newseum Top 10!


Credit for this one really belongs in large part to the Times’ David Wright for the illo. I wish I could have worked even more white space onto the front and played it up larger, but ….. you take that you can get, hmm? :}

Remember that illustration I posted last week? (look immediately down) I showed it to the big man at the studio (Hi, Nathan), and he liked it enough to send it on to someone else …. and it wound up being featured online by Charles Apple!

Man, is it sad, but hey, is it cool! Thanks, Nathan! Thanks, Charles!

And hurrrrrr it is again, for the pleasures of your eyeballs:


…. the one thing it did make me realize, unfortunately, is that my old school-period portfolio is still online and is being linked to. D: Egads!

In a late effort to have more than four posts up for the month of July, here’s one of my favorite pages from this summer/this semester/ever:

Pretend that its also up on my portfolio. I wish we did more vertical floorboards/rails.

Tonight I designed two pages on Friday’s final shuttle launch. The fact that we don’t have a Saturday issue means that we’re running the story a day later than virtually every other paper out there, so page 7 also features a retrospective article from the AP. I revisited and updated a Q&A format I used once back in February.

This was also the first time that I’d designed a series of pages appearing together that were not a doubletruck. Good challenge. I was also thinking of and very inspired by the Orlando Sentinel‘s special section on the shuttle program that came out earlier this week. See the whole section on Charles Apple’s blog here.
