Hard Times Spur Ideas for Change

Thirsty Thursday Logo

A logo I created for the Thirsty Thursday event that happens every week at my place of business. It's an event where employees can give presentations of their choosing to fellow employees, usually being things that aren't necessarily work related, and grab a drink as well. I created both a color version and a black version, and I prefer the black one, because it make the bottle cap stand out more.

Paris Heightens Museum Vigilance After Big Heist This sounded cool, the heist part. It's unfortunate art was stolen, but it sounds like a movie. I can see the spinning newspaper with that headline. It'd be great if it was some marketing ploy for some new heist movie, and they went around stealing paintings and leaving clues, of course returning them later.

Landis Accuses Top Cyclists of Drug Use Not my favorite sketch, but I think if revisited it could be interesting. I would definitely play up the painted into a corner concept that I tinkered with in the sketch.

Plan B: Skip College

New Site: Hunt's Ketchup

The new and improved Hunt's Ketchup is now live. To go along with their new "No High Fructose Corn Syrup" messaging they wanted a site refresh and that's where I came in. A simple site, but it was fun to work on nonetheless. The rest of the site can be seen at huntsketchup.com

This is a sketch I came up with while thinking of ideas for this week Illustration Friday submission. It's the same idea, but with a different style and different roadie.

Illustration Friday: Equipment

This goes out to all those hard-rocking roadies doing equipment checks.

A Generation Gap Over Immigration An interesting article that explores the difference in opinion on how immigration should be handled, relating to generation.

 Cellphones Now Used More for Data Than for Calls The article also includes text messages as "data." I don't think this really comes as a surprise to anyone.

Twin Six

Just received my "Ride" poster yesterday and it looks even better close up. "Twin Six is two determined graphic designers doing what we do best, so we can finally ride with pride." I like the sound of that. You can check out the rest of their offerings at twinsix.com

The Rise of Company Gardens If I were to redo this one, her hand is defintely the first thing to get fixed. On the plus side I think the type for the most part turned out nicely.

New York Times Sketch

The headline has changed since when I first saw it posted, but it was that when I drew it. Reading this headline there was no way I could resist drawing it for today's post. I'm sure it's nothing like that obviously and it is a tragedy that the leak happened in the first place, but the solution seems like something out of a science fiction novel or perhaps even a children's book; We're going contain the spill using a giant box/dome and we're using robots to put it there. Anyway here is the link to the article: Robots Position Giant Box Over Oil-Spewing Well and here's a screenshot of the original headline.

Opinion: All-Nighters: Raiders of the Night Kitchen I feel like this one could use some work, it's just not quite right, but then again it is just a sketch.

Illustration Friday: Cocoon

This was actually a sketch I did while thinking about this week's Illustration Friday, but I liked the roughness of the line enough that I decided to use it as the one that was submitted.

 Op-Ed Contributor - Finding the Terrorist Next door Something about the way this headline was worded jumped out at me today. The first image that came to mind was of an evil Wilson, the neighbor from the show "Home Improvement." It seemed that it was exactly what the title was getting at, that guy who tried to bomb Times Square was somebody's neighbor, a seemingly normal guy with very evil intentions.
