WEEKLY MONSTER 101
Good morning. I’ve been a bad, bad blogger. Please excuse the long absence. It’s been an absolutely exhausting week. Productive, though: I designed the cover for the UCLA Extension Fall catalog cover as part of their… ahem… Masters of Graphic Design program. (Paul Rand and I… we’re like this!) You can click on the image for a larger view:
I put together the first two sample spreads for the Monster Book, and got to talk with a great many of you in the process of gathering all the necessary release forms to put your cool stories into print. (You’ve all been extremely kind about it! Thank you!) I also designed 46 new objects for the upcoming Echo Park Time Travel Mart, put together a new 48-page brochure for L.A. Louver, and almost, almost have the Hockney Catalog done.
I’m exhausted! After a certain point, you can burn yourself out with fun work just as easily as with lame work. Even with self-generated projects there is a level of administrative song-and-dance that’s not fun and makes me retreat into my head. So I thought I’d do something nice for myself and for you:
I know I kind of spoiled the surprise with the title of this entry, but I hope you won’t mind too much. If you’re game, I hope you’ll once again
I will have a lot more fun stuff for you in the coming days! For now, I hope you enjoy the first of the Weekly Monsters and know that 344 LOVES YOU
