Even though I’ve been at it for two years, there’s still a lot about freelancing that I continue to learn and re-learn on an almost daily basis. The idea of not getting comfortable, ever, is one of those lessons.
By the way, make sure you try out our new sharing features plugged into each post. These will let you drop a link on Facebook, Twitter, and if you click “more,” well just about any other site you care to spread the word on. These will link back to whatever URL you click from, so if you want to share a specific story, make sure you’re on that story’s page, and not, say, on the homepage. Although who am I kidding? You do what you like, we’ll love you just the way you are.
I’ve had this strip written for about 10 to 11 months now, but it always needed the proper setup (see Wednesday’s strip for that). With my penchant for saying the most inappropriate things at the least-appropriate moments, I’ve sometimes fantasized that this scenario is note-for-note what my return to full-time employment would be. No, just kidding. I am an excellent candidate for your office’s design needs. Promise.
It was suggested, rather strongly, last night, that further Great Pizza Hunt Excursions be given their own space on this website, and so that will be the way it goes in the future. Bravo to those who convinced me.
It was also asserted that this space be reserved to speaking only of things that relate directly to the strip at hand. To which I reply: Batman Returns is the third best Batman movie, hands down. Discuss if you like, but it will not change facts.
Terry Marks of TMARKS Design graces our latest show. The show that barely happened in the end as it turns out. Immediately after recording, Terry had to head home sick. And the student tip from Mig Reyes also only arrived after Mig was able to recover from his bus getting hit by a truck just minutes before.
But we’re glad it all turned out fine for everyone in the end, as Terry talks with us about his new book with Matthew Porter from Rockport: Good Design; Deconstructing Form and Function and What Makes Good Design Work.
We also speak about the three dozen or so logos he’s done for DC Comics, how could we not?
And hang around until the end (or use the chapter markers we’ve gone back to including in our shows to jump directly to it) for a special appearance by the one and only Eddy Wang.
This one goes out to some friends of mine.
Last week we put together an impromptu Great Pizza Hunt and after waiting far long than I should I’m going to post my review of Zio’s Pizzeria and the one I have received. If you were there, and you know who you are, either send me your quick review or post it in the comments and I’ll see that it gets added.
Now, I say to you who want to go again — where to next?
As this has the potential to go long, all this will be after the jump.
That is one long subtitle, Rockport. We’re back, abandoning the problematic green-screen format due to a book that seems have been designed to become transparent under such conditions. Take a look at the review below:
