! { an aside }

Poster by the John Morgan Studio

Technology and I have not been getting along as of late--my printer busted before I left for New York, the phone company is having trouble with my internet connection, my cell phone... well. Suffice it to say that my computer at work isn't being too helpful either; I'd love to upload more photos and drawings, but I can't seem to get them on my system right now.

Oh well. I'm never on the computer much these days anyway because thankfully, I'm currently employed to wield a pencil--I've very suddenly been thrown into helping design a television series, and it's a bit of work! We're trying to inject the influence of Saul Bass and while it's fun, it is tough.

Thankfully I'm working under the influence of not only SB, but my good friend Matt--who's previous show, Harold Rosenbaum: Chartered Accountant Extreme, I got to design--and my pal Dani who's thumbnails and development sketches are a force to be reckoned with. Perhaps you know her good friend James of Iron Scythe fame? Well, we're all good pals and a great team together. Maybe I can show some of our work a little later?

I guess I can't really post anything at all now, but let's see if I can get this fixed tomorrow.


  1. So sorry that technology is not behaving for you...but glad to hear that you're working with designing a TV show!
    Very cool.


  2. Hey, I've got that BASS poster too. Picked it up at the SAUL BASS exhibition at the Design Museum here in London a couple years ago!

  3. very cool!

    The Design Museum in London must be awesome; I've browsed through their website many a time--I love this stuff.

    In NY I really enjoyed the design section of the Moma (which included some incredible posters) and, of course, the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.

    Exciting stuff!
