Tick tock.

Hej!
It's been a while. It's been a whiiiillllleee. That's a long while. Maybe we should get started, so I can show you some of the stuff I've been wasting my time making. Please keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times.



First up is this book cover, just a design experiment, for Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis. If you haven't read it already, I strongly suggest you get a copy and do so ASAP - it's essential reading for anyone. So yah, I designed a little book cover. The outer sections are the flaps that flap back under the hardback cover.

I thought I'd get really deep and meaningful, and do something typographical. I failed, so created this witty graphic.

Then again, this one is one I'm quite proud of. Simple, but meaningful. So what's the meaning? Well, don't ask me. Det ved jeg ikke - I don't know! Art's all about the user's interpretation of the piece, anyways. So stop being lazy and work something out yourself!

A witty graphic, which is meant to represent a food. Can you guess what it is? See the bottom of this post for the answer :P

Now, what's this? Did you never know about Dimensionality? I could have sworn I told you one time... anyways, it's a blog I run (and post on from time to time where I basically rant on about my little theories on the nature of reality. Don't start reading unless you're prepared to understand it.

I've discovered a hidden passion of mine: typography. So I thought I might compare two fonts, in this case Rockwell and Lubelin, known as 'slab serif' fonts.

Well, that's really all I have to say ATM. Not much, sure, but I can't think of everything right now. Oh, BTW, I've decided to undertake a 365 challenge. No, not pictures: no one wants to see 365 pictures of my ugly mug, and it would really mess up my photostream, so no; I'm going to do a 365 blog. That's right: one blog post, per day, for 365 days. The posts should be a couple of paragraphs long, and I'm only allowed 5 get-outs. That means I can only say "whoops, I was busy on that day" 5 times. Any more and I've failed and I'm a disgrace and you can all slap me.

So that will start on 1st January 2010. One whole year of blogging... it's going to be challenging, I can say that for certain.

Adieu,
~John




ps. The graphic is a hash brown (heh heh)
