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!

So you know I blabbed about my job a while back … but I just updated my portfolio with some clips from the past few months here! Here’s a preview of some of the pages I’ve done for The News-Star in Monroe, La.:

As I might or might not have mentioned before, I’m working as the design intern at the Tulsa World through the fall. This week, I got to do one of my first section covers. Here’s the cover from above the fold (and the goofy instagram I made of it):

And here’s the entire page!

Nothing super-revolutionary …. yet. One of my concerns here was getting all four of the kids interviewed on to the page and get their mugs as big as I could, as this would definitely be a cut-out-and-keep page for their families. Let’s see what comes next week.

I’ve been using the internet at the Missourian for the last few days during the afternoon and since I was there for so long tonight … I got to design a page. Here’s what might be my last little gem for page three tomorrow:

What’s this?

More cats in publications? Is this a theme? You bet.

My spring preview design wasn’t picked for print but for online instead! I’ll probably be writing about the creation process more this week for class, so let me just give you a bigger preview …

Explore it online!

The final presentation was a collaboration between myself, the online editor and a web editor who put all the working pieces together to make it functional. What a trip.

I’m currently the only TA assigned to permanetly work the print desk on Saturdays, so last night I did 5 pages. Here’s one:

Here are the others:

And here’s a relatively quick masthead I worked up for the front. This semester, I’d like to create at least one with a fully-integrated photo (two layers, background and foreground.) We’ll see.

Video still of my hands, which I will now attempt to draw in Illustrator for a t-shirt design so that next year, a few hundred (I wish – really only tens) of students will walk around with my fingers on them. Thanks to Daniel Posey for the image capture.


Something like this.
