Typography 1 class

On a very short and spontaneous note, I have just started to teach a Typography 1 course in the Advertising Design & Graphic Arts program of the New York City College of Technology. I look forward to fun and games with Serifs, Sans-serifs, and ... Egyptians!

Coney Island Yard

I was at a tour of the Coney Island Subway Yard this week, to do research for a project. It's a very impressive place, with a lot of cool machinery and an enormous overhaul shop. Thanks to the MTA Transit Museum for organizing the tour!

Coney Island for SYNCOPATED 4

I've just finished with my 8 page comic story about Coney Island, which I created for the latest volume of Brendan Burford's Comic Anthology SYNCOPATED. This forth volume will actually be published by Random House, so all the cool stuff in there will get even greater exposure! Thanks to Brendan for putting it all together, and thanks to all the Coney people who helped me with my research.
