The Eisner American Museum of Advertising & Design is holding it’s “I Love The Eisner” event on February 20th, 2009 and it will be featuring the “250 Square Feet of Art” exhibit.
The description says: “250 Square Feet of Art” gathers the work of local artists who each received a square foot of plywood with which they could create a work of art.
I submitted a piece this year, it’s titled “Crayons” and it looks like this:
I believe they auction them off to help raise funds for the Eisner, though I’m still not sure if there are more than 250, and only 250 get selected, or if they all get auctioned off, or what… Yes, I’m short on the details.
Anyway, if you happen to be there, keep an eye out for my piece, and let me know if you see it there… Thanks!
I’d like to get more familiar with Adobe Illustrator, which is an application I’ve used on and off for the past 15 years or so, but mainly as a utility, and not so much as an illustration tool. (Bézier curves are cool.)
I’d like to draw simple shapes to start with, so I did, and then I ended up making them into patterns, as you can see below.
Pretty exciting, huh? I guess my motivation for making these may be caused by the fact that I’ve used other people patterns (with permission) in the past. Which brings up an interesting point… How do you license something like this? I guess a Creative Commons license makes sense. Attribution I suppose? So how would you attribute it to me? Well, if you use one of these, just say “Thanks!” really loudly in public, and assume that I heard you. (And if someone else hears you say it, that’s ok too…)
