June 26th-ish

June 26th, 2007 | No Comments

Being doing lots of sketching lately. Too early to show you what it’s all about, but I’m really feeling what I’m drawing & designing. Really stoked about it all.

Here are some random tidbits of info, like cut-up pineapple chunks in a Pixie cup, avec toothpicks for ease of handling, juste pour mon semblabe, mon lecteur:

  • Dug into the recent Jarvis Cocker solo album … and I think it’s fantastic. The lyrics are fab. Jarvis really knows how to tell a good story, and he’s funny and depressing at the same time. Perf.
  • I wish I could go to the opening of Jim Isermann’s Vinyl Smash-Up show at Deitch Projects this weekend. If I lived in New York, I’d be there.
  • Have you ever noticed that the current [now old] Maytag logo, current Corporate Express logo, as well as the old Northwest Airlines logo, all share the same elements … a sheared rectangle with a serif-like curve at the end? (I’m sure there’s a fancier term for it, but I have no idea what it is.)
  • On that note, the AutoZone logo and KFC’s old logo (the one designed by Schecter & Luth in 1997) have something similar going on, too.
