    Shenandoah’s Noir Issue Logo


    I’ve been working with the Shenandoah literary magazine for a while now, and next week they launch their noir issue. The editor, Rod Smith, asked me to try and come up with a logo/ad for Poetry Daily, and given it’s design week in ds106 I figured I would share …

    Omar’s Tie Fly By


    Omar Little rules.  You pretty much realize that by the first season’s end, but by the second season he starts to take on legendary status because his knowledge of greek mythology, his brilliant courtroom apparel, and his ability to shutdown Maury Levy in a courtroom of his peers. It’s all …

    ds106 Salad Days


    I’ve been admiring assignments like the Shakespearean LOLcat for a while now, and this time I decided to stop analyzing and start paralyzing with my awesome art! I knew the quote I wanted to do right away. It’s a line I’ve repeated regularly since reading Antony & Cleopatra in undergrad …

    The 411 Photoblitz


    I’ve been doing a lot of office nesting over the last six weeks or so. Why? Well, because we moved into a brand new building (which rules), and it just so happens the director of DTLT (that’s me) got an office as a result. The idea is pretty foreign to …

    Cropped Road Signs: Fallout Fan


    I love today’s Daily Create, namely taking a cropped road sign and provide a different context. My idea of turning a nuclear fallout sign into a fan was quick and easy, although not nearly as creative as some of the others. Nonetheless, this post allows me to feature the …

    Wiring Mirror Scenes


    It’s time to do some assignments for #wire106, so I dreamed up a new one called “Wiring Mirror Scenes.” One of the things that came up again and again during our discussions of The Wire over the last month is how the show is constantly paralleling and mirroring scenes. One …

    The Game Supercut


    John Johnston, hearing my call, created an automated supercut video of all the mentions of “the game” in Season 1 of The Wire. The VideoGrep script provides a quick, easy, and exacting way to analyze a show like The Wire around very specific themes in the script. It’s not …

    Wiring Supercuts


    John Johnston’s post yesterday about Videogrep really piqued my imagination.

    Videogrep is a python script that searches through dialog in videos and then cuts together a new video based on what it finds. Basically, it’s a command-line “supercut” generator.
