Schoolism Course is FULL!

Just want to let everyone know that my January class is full, but my April 3rd class is open for registration.

Today I did this job for next weeks issue of The Weekly Standard. I started this job at 5:00 a.m. and finished at 8:30 p.m. Talk about a long day . . . there's some things that I know could be better, but for the time I had to pull this one off, I feel pretty good about it . . . this is the fastest I've ever done something like this for a magazine, my eyes barely work, and my hand is sore, crooked and bent. Time to go to bed.

*FUN FACT*

One thing I feel I should add, about the Obama doll. It was meant to not look exactly like him rather to look more like a cheezy doll . . . think of a ken doll or something.

Stupendous! Great likeness too for what I'm sure was an awkward expression to deal with!

Great (of course !)
But I prefer when it's not so "photographic", "Kruger style".
Your Burton is better

Thank you everyone . . . yeah, this was a crazy one.

Jean-marc, I agree with you as well, I rather prefer the more painterly look as well, but when I work for magazines they usually want a more photo realistic look. I still feel though, with the Hillary, I kept it looks and sketchy. Had fun and got paid!

It's great Jason. I like that its not as photorealistic as your other photoshop tends to be. But of course you know i'm always a fan of sketchiness.

Hey Jason - thanks for the comments! Artrage is a program I downloaded from this site: http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html - it is 25 dollars. I found out about it from Armand Serrano's blog - who really know how to use it!

Way to go and get it on paper... (or electrons) Jason. Being able to work with time stress is not for everyone.. seems you are up to the challenge with A list work every time... most commendable. Congrats on your virtual school full enrollment! Inspiring..

Terrific job and concept as well...I hope the AD appreciates you saving his ass coming up with something of this quality in so little time.
Don't let them take advantage of you, well at least not often, especially if you think your work will suffer...you're too good!!!

-Thank you Marco!

-Tom, I love ya bro, your words are always so encouraging, thanks man!

-Thanks Tim, I'll check out artrage, looks pretty cool.

-Thanks Bill, was a tough one to pull off but I managed!

-Vincenzo Thanks much man, much appreciated. No worries, though, they pay well for this type of work, also, the A.D. is one of the best A.D.s that I've ever worked with. It's totally worth it.

-Wouter, thanks bro, means much and thanks again . . . you know what I mean!

Your works are wonderful! You make it looks great when it is more sketchy or when it is a 'high-polish' work, nevertheless.
Congrats for this 'all-day' work.
All the best in 2008.
