Happy Passover

Passover greetings from a bucket of matzoh ball soup.  Yes, one more holiday our melting pot family of Christian, Jewish, and Russian Whatever celebrates.  

The soup actually didn’t turn out as good as it usually does (how do you ruin matzoh ball soup?), but the turkey was actually much better than it looks.

Power of Signs

Getting a point across without words can be a difficult task, but when done successfully it definitely creates a strong message…

Happy pic and a good reminder

After working all day on mindless (souless?) powerpoint presentations on ancient PCs for corporate America, this cheery little pic saved the day. Sometimes days like these are useful reminders why I’m suffering through 2 years of design boot camp…hopefully to avoid powerpoint, at any rate…

Hookah Tips 4 Squirrels

Occasionally I get some weird links to my wordpress site.  I can’t see how I’m linked to The Hookah Lounge, but WordPress says it’s an incoming link.  Upon clicking this particular entry on that blog, I guess it partially makes sense:

Familiar motto

I managed to go 3 weeks without a trip to Starbucks. Alas, week 3 of my 6th quarter has gotten me reacquainted with the friendly baristas at my local ‘bucks…
Anyway, thought this ad epitomized PC philosophy at its best.

Turkmenbashi gets gridded

That’s right, Turkmenbashi, the crazy president of Turkmenistan had his moment in the limelight making and breaking the grid.
The president-for-life who passed away not too long ago, was known for his crazy personality cult and absurd rules. My research found endless amounts of sculptures, products, and buildings bearing his name, in addition to the infamous giant gold sculpture of himself that constantly rotates so he is always facing the sun. Liqueur, money and pieces of art bear his face. He has renamed days of the week and months of the year to his liking. Lip syncing, music in cars, and ballet are a few of the oddities banned. Obviously, this guys provided plenty of interesting material for my Type & Image assignment, which involved using characteristics of a person formated with conventional and deconstructed grids, on 5 postcards.
Though I am not an orderly person, I greatly enjoyed this assignment, and hopefully this will be the start to adding some structure to my work.
