I have a more serious post on the way, but it won’t be done for another few days and I want to put something up this week. So here is some random stuff that’s going on.
– I made a poster!
I happen to think very highly of my posters. Every indie musician needs to be able to make a basic poster, and after about 13 years of practice I think I have it down to a science. My graphic design process is “find background image, put text on it in a hopefully legible manner, and play around with fonts until it looks semi-OK”. The results, I think, speak for themselves.
(I didn’t actually make it with Photoshop – my old copy of Photoshop isn’t really functional anymore and I have no desire to pay Adobe $9.99/month for eternity, so I did it with Gimp. As well as having a name that’s an ableist slur, Gimp is really hard to use, so yay me.)
– I also created a Prezi of the same thing with the same background image. Like the poster, only with ZOOMS. I love Prezi.
– Aldona Kaczkowski, creator of the Working Beauty webcomic I mentioned last week, very kindly got in touch and sent me a link to her web store. You can actually buy the “I survived the spiral” T-Shirts! I bought one and will post an awkward selfie of me wearing it when it arrives. Also I have been reading the back catalogue of the comic and there is some awesome weird stuff with aliens, all in the corporate setting. Check it out if you can.
As far as I can tell this is the first time a psychoanalyst has been honoured with a doodle. Neat!
