:S:L:P: Just got three packs of business cards from moo.com. Two on their regular 16pt stock and one on their new 100% post-consumer, manufactured using %100 wind power stock. Both look great (except for some minimal artifacting around the text).

The nice thing with moo is you can change the image on the front of the card. So if you're looking to show off different pieces from your portfolio every time you hand out a card, they're a good way to go.

The weird thing is the size of the cards. They're slightly shorter and narrower then standard North American business cards. That's because moo.com got its start in Europe and apparently they have much more refined and modest business card needs.

Check 'em out if you're in the market for new cards.

Grad Project Update: Panel B

:S:L:P: Another look at my grad project, this time a peek at the unfinished second panel. This is hand drawn on top of a digital print, a process I'm experimenting with for this project.

The countdown to opening night of the ECUAD Grad Show on May 1st is rapidly approaching. The website for the grad catalogue is up. Catalogues will be available this week from the Emily Carr front desk.

Finally, in un-my-art related news, check out this amazing photo essay from Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano, currently making a bit of a stir.

Mitchel Press Studio

:S:L:P: My studio at The Mitchel Press Building where I'm working on my grad project. You can see two out of the five pieces on the left and right along with lots of sketches and texture paintings.

I'll miss this place when I have to give it up next month.

Grad Update

:S:L:P: Here's a look at the first panel of my grad piece. The other five are coming along nicely and the process of merging the digital prints with hand drawn figures is working nicely. Check back for more updates soon and mark May 1st on your calendars for the Emily Carr Grad Show!

In other news, the second mounting of the Carded Show! opened last night and will be up until April 20th at the Ayden Gallery in Tinseltown. Check out all the great work!

Finaly, I've been listening to a great podcast on illustration called Big Illustration Party Time. Kevin Cross and Joshua Kemble geek out weekly about all things illustration, interview awesome illustrators and cartoonists, talk shop and fill your ears with tons of behind the scenes tidbits. Check it out!
