Baltimore Book Fest

Hey guys, a friend showed me this flyer, apparently Gary Kachadourian (he works for the Baltimore Promotion of the Arts) is putting together a magazine stand for the Baltimore Book Fest this year, and specifically wants collaborative artist's mini-books, and while our planned book may not fit the description exactly, I think such a project could be right up our alley?

Cut & Paste Live Design Competition




CUT & PASTE
WHEN: Sept 15
WHERE: New York City
COST: $15 at the door/$10 preordered
WHAT:
We here at Cut&Paste have three, distinct missions:
1. Anonymous designers are too many. We’re here to inflate them and float them like giant zeppelins in a roofless forum for expression, city by city and cross-continents, to raise the artist’s profile.
2. It’s time to draw out artists, audiences, clients, recruiters, and consumers of good design. Whether you come to network or shamelessly self-promote, we’ll put down the welcome mat for you to make some introductions.
3. Showcasing designers at work dispels stork myths about how design is made. We come together to learn the birds and bees of design and to marvel at the creative process.
Cut&Paste is a global movement of artists, firms, and media that come together to strengthen creative networks through events and local support.


I think we should all go to this. Looks like a helluva lot of fun.

here's one of my inks for an Ektokids logo. I still have to color it and clean it up a bit. I've been a little obsessed with the fish man lately i guess.

    UPDATE: Web Two Point Izzo

    I have officially bought EKTOKIDS.COM

    If you click, you will see that nothing is there.
    This is where you come in.

    I've been coming up with ideas for a while about how to make the site. It's been tricky because I don't want it to look like I, David, made it, I want it to feel like everybody's website. So, in regards to that, here's my plan.

    Ektokids.com is going to serve as a hub to link all of our art together and be super-community-web-two-point-oh-bloggy-social-networkytastic
    <
    when you load up the site, you will see two elements:
    1.A random logo designed by an Ektokid at the top
    2.And at the bottom will be an artist menu

    The logos will be randomized every time someone visits the site

    The menu will be a fighting game (cough, mortal kombat, cough, 1993) character select screen.

    here's a visual aid as to what im talking about:

    I apologize for the crudeness, i made these at work in MSPAINT making what some have already called "An outright disgusting use of Facebook."

    There will be no flash, just simple javascript. When you scroll over an Ektokid, they will appear in in the left as an animated gif of them in a fighting position.

    Alright, still with me?

    When you click on the kid, you will be brought to the next part of the Ektokids.com site, which will be a sort of stats page. this will show a small bio, work examples, blog link and a big ass picture of the kid with a custom name title.

    Here's what I have in mind:


    Alright, now I know the likelyhood of making 16 people put together a website, so I am going to do everything, I would just need a bio and logo from you guys. I could take most of the pictures myself.

    Also, I know large photos take time to load, but these would all be wonderfully and purposefully low resolution to look like a shitty videogame.


    My reasoning for this weird fighting game idea?

    It doesnt have me drawing anything so it won't look davidized
    We will have alter-egos
    its fun, thirteen-year-old-edgy much like the name "ektokids"
    animated gifs of us in fighting positions
    if you don't like photos of yourself, we can add masks, extra arms

    anyway, if you have a better idea, hate this with every fiber of your being, or have suggestions, BE VOCAL, comment on this.


    in other news,
    I've been gallery hunting for us and have had a few callbacks and responses,
    people are interested in us, but Artscape is in fullswing, so they can't talk more until that's over, so more updates later.


    Peace Out


    BONUS ROUND!!!

    phase 1



    Found Art @ the Desk



    I have been lucky enough to find this artist's drawing left at the desk, where I work. Who can guess the artist? I'll give you a hint: He is Egyptian.

    Just because you crumple it up doesn't mean I'm not going to un-crumple it and see what it is then take a picture of it then post it online:


    Sorry David


    (I promised to see you tonight, but I didn't. I haven't not been drawing though.)
