First attempt at InDesign

Here's the Original, I have no idea who this greasy, lazy guy is but I chose to rip his article.
 I figured the font was customized so I tried to go for something similar.

Perspective works

2 point exterior at twilight (or if it's a very big city... just night.)

3 Point exterior- I've heard with perspective drawings there are what's called "cones of vision" that even if you follow perspective perfectly if you go very far out from the center everything gets really warped.  You can see a little of that around the edges of this one. 

2 Point interior.  I was going for a ruins look.  The arched doorways take a while.

A few more faces and a shape design

I liked this one just because it's super simplified.  (It actually makes me think of a Mii avatar on the Wii system.)

Rose window type design.  An icey burst!

Update 1 on Logo design: Wendy's

This is a first draft (no where near done and I'm still experimenting) of the redesign of the Wendy's logo.  Going for a modern look and I'd like to incorporate Wendy's head into the logo.

Illustrator Images

This was me trying to play with making a face.  Ew!  It didn't crop all the way!

 It's a French Horn!  Although now that I think about it, French Horns have 4 valve triggers and a fifth one for the thumb, but I think it still works.

This is a 2D rendition of Kepler's model for understanding the structure of the universe.

Here are my rings!

I traced one of the wonky pictures of me from the photo booth assignment.

Here are my shapes!!  Pac-Man ghost!

Teddy Bear!

I've been wanting to write a satirical (and short story) comic for a long time and I want to call it "The Trademark: Logos of our Generation."  "Logos" meaning both for logo and for the rhetoric term "logos" of the logical appeal.  It would be a series of short stories revolving around a mysterious and powerful trademark logo.

A Shirt Story

Here's "A Shirt Story."  I'm still a bit unsure about the music in the video.  On one hand, I love how if fits to the video.  It fit well enough I decided not to add extra sound effects.  However it sets a fast pace through the whole thing and doesn't give much room to breath.  Hm...

Quick Ideas

Although I'd still like to come up with a totally out of the box idea, here are some of my stop motion project ideas so far.

-A guy is picking out a shirt to wear for the day and as he looks over which one he wants the shirts wave their arms like they want to be picked.  I don't know where I'd go with it but putting support wires in the sleeves of hanging shirts would make this idea a very do-able one.
-Make a marshmallow person with wire limbs and an animated paper face (maybe just an eye or something) and he could react to other marshmallows or the world around him.
-Draw a cartoon, cut it out and have it walk around in real space.  This would be a very time consuming one because I'd have to fully animate this cartoon by hand, then cut the figures out and prop them up each frame.

Fun little video

Final Currency Designs

I put themes on the backs of the bills in English and Russian ( to the best I can get).  In the printed versions  the word TIDE is hard to read but anywho.

Currency update

I've gone a bit more cultural specific than I originally planned, but I'm still going faceless with my money plans.  This currency is for the L.U.N.A.R (Lunar United Nation of America and Russia) who have created an independent Moon nation. 
The Russian is (for what I can tell) is an equivalent word for tide meaning "inflow".  "Inflow" and "outflow" where the title of the Russian equivalent page of tides on Wikipedia.  I know there's probably a better word or a cognate, but for this project I think it should work.

The circles in the middle are phases and the more light shining on them, the more they are worth.
I haven't changed the serial number on the 5 Tide bill yet, I just noticed that now.
