07/24/2009: "Librarian Superhero Trading Cards"
Below is the first of many I hope to design for the librarians of the Egan Library where I work. It's more fun than regular business cards and I LOVE working in Photoshop.
Special Powers - Advanced online searching
Mission - Help students fight information overload
Arch Nemisis - Pop up blocker
Side Kicks: ipod Touch and Kindle 2
In other news, I have a show at our University Book Store coming up in two weeks and I have nothing ready for it. Life has been too crazy. I guess I had no idea how the addition of nine year old boy would alter things for me. I am hoping to spend some time in the studio this weekend.
As of now, the show will consist of one totally new piece that I've painted since my last exhibit. Three paintings that I've done in the past 2 years but haven't exhibited. Three paintings that have been exhibited before that I've re-painted. And two beautiful paintings that have been exhibited in the past, but at a very small venue.
Overall, I don't think the show "goes" together that well. There will be a variety of themes, sizes, and mediums. I will also have more prints available for purchase. The book store might be interested in keeping a few on my prints on hand even after the opening!
I really need to keep working, find my groove again, get off my lazy duff etc. I have a lot more respect for artists with kids!
