well, i suppose that these posts are indirectly written to myself, but here it is. i recently noticed that Bittersweet Harvest has featured my recent Meeting of Important People poster on there blog, with some kind words about my drawings (which i do greatly appreciate). also, i recently accepted a position with Excel Sportswear, an apparel design company close to where i live. i'm only four days in and it has certainly been slightly frustrating tinkering with digital manipulation of line and such, but today i feel i started making headway. the art director, dan mcmanus is a savannah college of art and design alum, who has put his faith in me and i am doing my best to not let him down. my first assignment there was to create a sketch for a jetski rental business that portrayed a voluptuous hard nippled blonde carving the waters on a yamaha skidoo. since then, i have been battling corel draw x3 and adobe illustrator to trace mechanical objects, such as buildings and cars. i do feel extremely fortunate that this company has asked me to be apart of their success and am doing my best to adapt and produce at a quick pace. all of the artists there have been very pleasant to be around and are very good at what they do; i hope they keep me aboard. anyhow, i am way behind on finishing the bookcase for Beginning with Books, here is an update on my painting thus far. that should be enough for now.
