Sorry this is late, I didn't anticipate being at work (researching my project, right?) until so late last night, but I didn't clock out until 1:00am, and thought I should sleep. :\
Anyway, I'm getting excited about my zine, I've found a design element that I can repeat throughout it, I brought home from work a stack of "guest checks" - the things that servers/waiters write orders down on, and I think I'll use them for the cover, the back, and then throughout the middle where I include drink recipes. It'll be a nice way to tie everything together. I also brought home a couple coasters to scan and include, and a couple of sugar packets for my "BRUNCH SUCKS" spread. HA!
Anyway. Have you guys seen the latest political news? Colin Powel is endorsing Obama. It's pretty exciting, but this is a bipartisan blog (right?) so, here's some "exciting" news from the McCain camp: SNL featuring Sarah Palin?.
Here's some design/illustration sites that I've got bookmarked - I've been meaning to put these up for a while, but my old computer was dropped last year and I had everything backed up but only found time to find my bookmarks this weekend:
http://overproof.org/ - Overproof Affliliates - Minneapolis, MN design group that supports local artists, and sells their wares on the site. Some cool shirts, jewelery, etc. I don't know if it's honestly still updated, the last events they have posted are from June/July, and the Jewlary, art, dresses, bags sections are not stocked. But here's a shirt by Deuce 7 if you're interested: Crown.
The Ultimate Guide to Designing With Black - Spoon Graphics has a GREAT blog for designers, I suggested subscribing to it if you read blogs. This is a great informative post about the differences between CMKY and RGB blacks, and how to deal with it when designing. Good read.
GRL + MC YAN - Heba showed us some examples of what Graffiti Research Lab does, but I don't know if she ever posted a link. So, here's a link. This is a video they did with MC YAN, a Hong Kong MC, when they bombed China. ;)
I might save some more sites for another sketch post.
