Time for a new sketchbook. #18 lasted almost exactly three years. I usually go through them a lot faster but the last two years have been mostly writing and research for Raised on Ritalin, and Chicagoland art duties. The bulk of #18 is filled with rough layouts, sketches, and notes for RoR.
My Resumé in Comics. Started this a year or two back and never finished it once I realized how many jobs I’ve had. Though detailing my 9 months as a Laser light show producer/animator would be pretty fun.
New ‘Raised on Ritalin’ pages are finally here! Thirty-nine of’em to be exact. This is part one of Chapter 4 and all of Chapter 5. I’m really happy with how this is turning out so far. Now the challenge is to finish up the full rough draft and find a publisher!
Sometimes I design things, Pt2: I also design a lot of posters for hours and events, as well as the MCAD SB’s logo (this is the most current one), and logos for our printing system that fit the college’s overall identity system. I also did a ‘family crest’ and its simpler variant that we had turned into patches for student staff.
It’s a great opportunity to practice and improve my design skills, and also just have fun and be creative as part of my job.
Sometimes I design things: I do a lot of ad-hoc, on-demand design work as part of my job at MCAD. Order forms, signage, etc. This summer I redesigned one of our pricing menus to look more like our brochure that a student designed a few years ago. I decided to re-design all of our order forms and signage to match.
