Today Was Supposed To Be A Trophy Day!!!
We finally had the first final crit in Illustration today, and I forgot all about the freakin’ trophy! For the first assignment I had the students working on spot illustrations. I know for sure who would’ve won the stinking thing too—darnit! I’ll give it to him on Monday and snap a picture then.
A friend and colleague of mine here at NKU, Tom Davie has a solo painting show up in the small gallery right now. It’s a great collection. He’s been working like mad lately on his paintings ever since he made the decision to ditch us and go pro (I guess I can say that in public now, right Tom? Hence, our current graphic design faculty search.). Anyway, it’s paying off, because his work is super nice. The Parishioner Series is a cool mix of all the great things that can be visually appreciated about both painting and graphic design. He has recently launched a blog for his painting studio: studiotwentysix2, and of course its main focus right now is the show. It’s worth stopping by to see the photos of the work.
No luck on getting a signed Chip Kidd book. Julie couldn’t make it to the evening event. Oh well. I may just buy another copy and mail it to him and request a signature. I’ll let you know if it works out.
In a strange, unrelated and useless factoid, for some reason my profile views right now are at 666! Freaky, huh? Please encourage your friends to click on my face (over there to the left) really soon, so Old Beezlebub doesn’t get me.
I’ve been looking for another excuse/reason to get back to Germany soon. This looks like a good one.
As I am writing this post, I just got an email that says UC’s AIGA Student chapter is hosting a lecture by Rebeca Méndez tomorrow night at 7:00 pm. Is it bad that I don’t recognize her name? Well, it’s off to Google I go to learn more about her.
