Ok, wow. I completely forgot to update this last week. Well, actually I didn't forget, I just realized every time I was about to, that I didn't really have any ideas for posts. But I've come up with a few for this week, so hopefully they'll come out okay and I can post a few times this week.

One of my ideas was to ask you guys to leave questions about graphic design or typography, or even things about art school, or computer programs, or websites, or anything. So if you guys leave some good questions I'll put up a post in a few days answering them, and hopefully it will be interesting.

Because I feel bad about not posting any actual art things on here for a while, here's another old piece that most of you guys have never seen, a blend featuring Anna from the band Play. Even though I made it in April 2006, I still think it's kind of cute :)

So, please leave questions in the comments! I can't wait to read them :)


  1. Ooh, I shall ponder and hopefully come up with a question or two! You do fantastic work and I know I could learn a thing or two by asking some questions!

    I love typography. So I wanna know what basic tools you would need to get started in doing some. Is there programs you can get for free/cheaper that someone just starting out could buy/get? How much experience with computers do you think someone would need to be able to do it successfully?

  4. Sometimes it's good to take a break, even from the things that are fun.

    What has your curriculum been like at during art school, since you're doing graphic design? Is it all art classes, or are there other general education requirements? Do they try to incorporate art-y things into them, since it's an art school and all?

    Early on, do you find yourself taking the same sort of classes as people specializing in others things like people doing illustration, painting, and photography? Is only later on that you get to really get into the nitty-gritty of what you'd like to do?

    Do certain "camps" of art school get along very well, or are there some that are always at odds with each other? (I have in mind that at my school, philosophy/English and business majors would not usually get along so well).

  5. What programs do you use?
    How did you start?
    I really want to get into graphic design but I don't know where to begin.
