I really want Bo Burnham’s new stand up special to be available whether it be to buy or for it to be free like he had been hinting at. I have seen parts of it online from his touring and I know some of the songs already and it is all so good. Knowing the material is not the same as having it though, I can’t wait to see it in full and have it.
mynameisboburnham .. let us have it! We are excited!
Graphic Design Project Class: Final Project
We were given a Thoreau quote and had to develop a 6-panel sequence of our interpretation of the quote. Here it is:
Yet we should oftener look over the tafferel of our craft, like curious passengers, and not make the voyage like stupid sailors picking oakum. The other side of the globe is but the home of our correspondent. Our voyaging is only great-circle sailing, and the doctors prescribe for diseases of the skin merely. One hastens to southern Africa to chase the giraffe; but surely that is not the game he would be after. How long, pray, would a man hunt giraffes if he could? Snipes and woodcocks also may afford rare sport; but I trust it would be nobler game to shoot one’s self.—
'Direct your eye right inward, and you'll find
A thousand regions in your mind
Yet undiscovered. Travel them, and be
Expert in home-cosmography.’
Being drawn to the phrase “curious passengers” in the quote, I was immediately thought of trains. I was greatly inspired by the colors and style of the New York City subway, and chose to make a minimalist design without any found images. After critique, I slightly altered the type because I liked some of the suggestions I got from my peers. This is the post-critique version. I’m really super happy with how it turned out!
The second and third images are crappy quality and don’t do the design justice at all, but I wanted to show what it looks like when printed out on a larger scale. It’s really difficult to read the text in both of them, just because the nature of how long the sequence is and because of how I had to upload them here :/ But I tried my best, lol. I’ll try to upload a better picture later.
