Blog Assign. #8 - Checking in with...

Each week I feel like I must check in with..

1. My Blogs.

I've suscribed to countless blogs on graphic design/art in general, which i check out ALL THE TIME. I know we all look at cool art blogs, but I wanted to inform everyone about RSS/Feed readers,(in case you don't know). If you are still typing out the address to the specific blog you want to view, there is a MUCH EASIER way to view all the blogs you like, all at once. What I use is google's reader,, and it's free of course, you just have to sign in to your google account. When you open the reader site, there's a button at the top left that says "add subscription". All you have to do is type your favorite blog's web address into that box, and it will add all your favorite blogs to a list on the left. You can also go further by categorizing them, by subject. It also keeps up with blog posts you've read already, and unread posts, so you don't read the same stuff over again.

Here's a good youtube tutorial:

2. My mom - I also check in with my mom EVERY week. I ask her for advice on everthing(except art related stuff) and she always gives me the best advice. Plus she always wants to know what's going on in my life anyway, so it's easy to talk to her.

Blog Assign. #7 - Printed inspiration

I'm sure most all of you know about these magazines, but incase you don't, CMYK is a really cool graphic design magazine, and the other one is Beautiful/Decay magazine, which is just modern art/everything. I like to buy these if i have extra money and just flip through them when I've run out of blogs to read, haha. They always have really cool stuff which always inspires me. The last picture is of Found Magazine. they just compile a big collection of found letters, notes and photos into magazines. I really like the style they use for the covers of each issue as well, and their collage-style layouts.

Blog Assign. #6 - Personal Workspace

The first two pictures are of my room, and my desk, where i do about half of my work. The other half of the time I'm in my kitchen, because I have a huge kitchen table, and the speakers/stereo in the kitchen is really nice. I get the least distracted when I'm working in the kitchen.

GSU film club flyer

I kept it simple, but I think it looks more 'legit' this way. You should all come out to Cage Space, this movie is wildddd.
