The last few days I've been waiting for my monograph/Thesis process book to come back from, its the 160 page book I've been working on the past 2 weeks, and it was suppose to be here last wednesday, so hopefully tomorrow "monday" it will be here. I just want to be able to see how it printed out.
meanwhile as I sit at the computer where it seems like every key is sticking down as I write, here is the cover I created for the book. I designed my cd booklet to match the book design, or maybe it was the other way around, I dont remember which one I made first.

when life gives you lemons...

I had my Senior Review today, it went very well I think. It wasent so much a critique, just an opportunity to show my work I've been doing for the last semester and a select few things from the past and talk about them and for teachers I have had to see what I've been working on and give some advice which is always helpful when your leaving school. These are a few shots of what I hung up and put on tables to show. It was basically books I've made and the tshirts I've been working on with the tags and mix cd's. My spreads for my monograph/Thesis Process book are also put on the wall because I'm waiting to get the printed copy back in the mail from I think its actually at the other school building now so I might get it tonight.

like a future with no friends

One small project that I have been working on for alittle while, "mostly last night and today." is this mix cd for my thesis that I want to give away for free at our show. I fugure its people like free stuff and I want them to be able to walk away with something. Its based off of my trips to BullMoose and looking through the free bin of samplers that they have, and sometimes liking them and sometimes not.
So I made this mix of 22 songs that i chose throughout the semester that I felt best describes the thesis and the songs that inspired me. So here it is.
the Tracklist is:
1. Moment-thirty-three, then?
2. Small Brown Bike-like a future with no friends
3. A Wilhelm Scream-famous friends and fashion drunks
4. Hot Water Music-not for anyone
5. Hot Water Music-freightliner
6. The Promise Ring-the deep south
7. Lucero-slow dancer
8. Sparta-Air
9. At The Drive-In-sleepwalk capsules
10. Refused-new noise
11.Dillinger Four-Twenty-one said three times quickly
12.The Promise Ring-Happy Hour
13.Lucero-nights like these
14.Hot Water Music-Bleeder
15.Jets To Brazil-conrad
16.Christie Front Drive-Instant Romance
17.Dillinger Four-"Honey, I Shit the Hot Tub."
18.Small Brown Bike-unsung zero
19.Small Brown Bike-the cannon and tanks
20.A Wilhelm Scream-anchor end
22.Jets To Brazil-sweet avenue

Heres what should be done withing the next month...
all shirts printed, i'm working on around 12 designs right now i think. 4 or 5 of them are done printing, i'm wearing one right now actually. i'll take pictures soon.

tags for shirts, which i'm going to go buy paper for to print out soon, they are pretty much done. the picture above is just the size tag, there will be 2 tags for each shirt, one with the ponder logo and a design, and the size one above.

Process book and monograph book, which are being combined into one book, should be over 100 pages and will be printed at have to get 3 of those.

other dumb shit for academic classes.

take pictures of people wearing my shirts, "fashion shots". and make some sort of asvertisement/poster for my display at the senior thesis show. and design the wall which i will be displaying all of my work.

probably more stuff but that it the most important stuff right now, lots of work to do.
