Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuun

Mmkay here's some things I've been thinking about/enjoying lately.

1. Grigoriy Leps "Ukhodi Krasivo" (literally translated: Leave Pretty)

I think somewhere between his delivery and how goddamn catchy the beat is, I found myself hopping around my room with hairbrush in hand, singing (read: bellowing) along.

2. Future graphic novel?
Oh man I wish I hate starting things I don't finish, but I really really want to dip my feet into the sequential art with a plot world. I know I can't even update my comic on time, but gahhhh.
Must doodle some more and think this through.

3. Last exam tomorrow, I reaaaaaally don't want to study

That is all.

Graphic Design Portfolio take 1

Well the first portfolio interview I have up is for Sheridan/York graphic design (my 3rd choice), and simultaneously, we had to produce a portfolio for Desktop Design. Here are some pieces that I have copies of on my USB at the moment.

An 8-page book we had to make on ourselves, outlining past, present and future. I particularly enjoy my map of Europe.

A piece I've probably posted already, Photoshop painting from back in the day titled "Insomnia".

Logo Design for the company "Dairy Cow Cream Puffs" an all-organic gourmet cream puff bakery.

Street banner design for the theme "Urban trees" after the style of Irma Boom.

Independent assignment, poster for La Roux's "Tigerlily".

A series of 3 labels outlining different tastes (I'm pretty sure sour eel chips exist somewhere in Asia, I just haven't found them yet).

Also, I have some ideas for a graphic novel brewing in my brain, and as soon as I get my butt in gear, I'm going to start outlining the story start to finish, properly. I don't know about you guys but I'm excited :]

It'll be equal parts snarky humour, human introspection, and of course at it's core, a struggle for happiness following a series of dark and twisted events.

So let's see, I got home at 4 am, after eating dessert at 3 in the morning, and played chess with yuliya, both sides looking near-identical.
After taking out my own knight in chess, mr. green murdering mr. body with the candlestick and the rope in an undisclosed location, a 2 minute game of dominoes and some facebook lurking we decided to call it quits.

Happy New Year guys, 2010 was pretty good,
I hope 2011 is even better :]
