Captain Craigslist

On a wee whim I decided to oogle google my name and up comes, of all things, the craigslist magazine I did for class last year. The project was to imagine if craigslist were to put out a monthly magazine and then design one. It could be about anything but it had to reflect the aesthetics of craigslist. So, after weeding through a mountain of best-of’s (and yes, I scrolled through ALL of the pages of thousands of best-of’s), I found a subculture within craigslist: the superhero/super villain/time machine/ninja group of people posting ads. I decided to make an extra super issue of the would-be craigslist magazine. I took many of the “wanted” ads for things and made a section and then I combined several different stories to make the larger stories within the issue. I wanted it to look pretty rough, sort of late 80’s/early 90’s colors and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

Surrealism

I’ve drew two art movements and two months from a box for class. Now I have to take those and make two calendar pages (well, four: two decorative and two with the months, etc. on them) by “channeling” those two art movements. I got surrealism and cubism. Ugh. Luckily, however, Betsy Walton popped up in my reader today. I love her work anyway, but it just so happens to be some pretty awesome inspiration for my surrealist month. How cool is that?
