Merry Christmas 2007

Well, another Christmas has come and gone, and I spammed a massive Christmas E-Card out to all of my friends and family. This card was special however in that it employed the style and technique of my very good friend: Steph Laberis. When we both worked at Leap Frog we had both started experimenting with putting scanned textures in our digital artwork, mostly various papers. and over time, she developed a very intricate paper cut-out technique (exemplified by this awesome tutorial) which I've been dying to try out for months and months. And here it is by all means a massive hat-tipping to her and her artistic bad-assery.... My Xmas Card for this past year.

So my friend Andy has got me drawing little scribbles and bibbles on post-it notes. It's a great medium for experimentation and just getting those little ideas out of my head. Here are a few I did last week. See more of my post-its at "PIP" by Andy Ristaino.

I was commuting to leapfrog the other day, and ran into my coworker and friend, Andy. and whilst delighting in the delays inherent to mass transit, we humored about the possibilities of rocket packs and how simply bad-ass they would make our daily trips to and from work... of course we quickly realized that if we did indeed have jetpacks, leapfrog is likely the last place they'd be taking us... Cheers Andy!
