a Poster or two

Yo yo yo. Whatup? Here's a poster for a fictitious reading event by David Mamet called Gems from a Gambler's Bookshelf and other Stories.

Below is a poster I did for City College of New York's SAME-TV for a fashion show they were throwing. I was art directed, so no one get any assumptions, ahem, ideas; 'very ghetto' is what we were going for. This was done with watercolor and color pencil, tabloid size.

some Book Covers

Here are some Book Cover exercises I've done. These are from existing books, so they weren't gigs but still fun to do.

E.B. White's Here is New York front cover

E.B. White's Here is New York back cover and spine

The following two book covers were exercises to abstract the design to an indiscernible stage, and yet showing some kind of abstract relationship between the book and the design, and the different visual elements it bears:

Gabriel García Márquez's Living to Tell the Tale book cover

Thomas Mann's Transposed Heads book cover

Christopher North's Forever Waltz and Renquist

Christopher North's Renquist CD package design:



Let me just say that Christopher North took a chance working with me and I can't thank him enough to have had the opportunity. Go clickedy-click his site and take a listen. He's in iTunes, CDBaby, and all those musical places. He has done music for off-Broad shows as well as films, on top of his personal albums. And, guess what, yup he's at work on a double CD, Spacebar, that will be designed by whom...? Wonders of wonders, will this particular wonder turn into fact? A fourth dimension will have to tell.
