I recently found some time for some personal sketch book work and did up this squid. I’m hoping to eventually move from this sketch to a full-color vector sea beast. For the time being at least I’d like to start posting some sketches a little more frequently, as I’ll hopefully be doing a lot more drawing. Enjoy.




Emo Calorie Commits Horrific Suicide

While I don’t usually read things on expecting to find useful design info, a posting from a few weeks ago piqued my interest. The article, “9 Attempts at ‘Edgy’ That Failed (Hilariously),” features some woefully misguided marketing/ad campaigns. By far the best (worst) one featured was a Pepsi Max campaign intended for European release but quickly shelved thereafter. The thrust of the campaign was that Pepsi Max contains only one calorie, so (obviously) that calorie must be so lonely that it wants to off itself. Sound logic, no? Regardless of how off-base, misguided, poorly planned, insensitive, et. al that this campaign concept was, the illustrations are freaking awesome. Check it.
