Chuck Anderson – Day 2

Chuck Anderson – Day 2
08/6/09

I’m thinking of making this a daily thing.

Each day, I rip off Chuck Anderson’s NOPATTERN style. And each day you look at it.

By daily I mean I did it yesterday, and I’m doing it today. That might be as long as my scattered brain will take this. Let me know what you think of my monkey.

Alright.

Now as for commenting on my blog. It has once again been brought to my attention that people are having trouble commenting. That makes me sad because I love reading comments. I’ll try to fix it, the only advice/request I can give you is to keep trying to post you coments. Multiple times. Maybe even copy and paste before you submit, then if it doesn’t go through, you can just paste it again as opposed to retyping.

It’s not ideal, but I’m working on it. You can also post on my Facebook page.

I have spoken a bit about Chuck Anderson and his NOPATTERN identity on here before. He’s a designer that I really respect.

I have been trying to mimic his style lately and I finally have one that is about 1% as good as his stuff, so I thought I’d share.

Here’s my attempt.

It’s not bad, but here’s his version.

Damn. I’ll keep trying.

Submissions from yesterday’s Lil Wayne/Chick Flick Posting

And the winner was:

Nicely done indeed, and a quality choice for winner by Chuck Anderson. But some of the others had merit, and I liked them because they pulled from further back in Chick Flick history.

You can check them all out here.

Can they be topped, I think they can.

Send yours to me and I’ll post them on the blog. Send to [email protected].

And Follow NOPATTERN on Twitter. I think these little challenges have legs, and he’ll be doing a lot more in the future, and thus so will I.

Before this one he did Scottie Pippen in The Godfather.


Classic!

Fun work

Martin Luther King Tribute
06/1/10

I wanted to attempt this style  in February, and being Black History Month I chose the Rev. as my muse.

His face is made up of the words of his epic Lincoln Memorial “I have a dream…” speech.

Take a look. I am having it framed as I type.

Smoking Goat Branding
04/1/10

I like beer.

Beer high in flavor, alcohol and price. I brew at home, but wouldn’t consider myself very good at this point. I’m working on it.

We have friends in Louisiana who I would consider really good. I designed some branding for their forthcoming brewery down there.

The Smoking Goat will hopefully be amazing, especially if I get some good beer out of the deal.

Have a look. Then drink a beer and have a look again. Continue this process until the logo looks awesome.

New Poster
02/4/10

This is a poster I made for my buddy Dustin.

A classic quote from him as we drove by Effingham, IL’s infamous and huge cross.

I thought it would look good in his new apartment.

Sheltered Perceptions
01/6/10

I recently got the chance to work on a project for the Humane Society. Given the fact that every time I walk into an animal shelter I have to be talked down from taking home every animal in the place, I was happy to help in anyway I could.

With the majority of pet buying in the United States coming from breeders, mall pet shops and unfortunately mills, animal shelters (specifically the Humane Society) are left overflowing with pets that need loving homes. They are running into a perception problem however, and many misconceptions about shelter pets are accepted as fact, and often repeated as such.

To get past this, we decided to take the problem head on, and address the most common misconceptions individually.

Here is where we landed:

Humane Society - Misconceptions"Mutt"

Humane Society - Misconceptions - "Bark"

Lauren and Dan sit’n in a tree…

My good friend Lauren is getting married in July, and though I am extremely jealous of her fiance Dan (don’t tell my wife), I made their save the date cards.

I use VistaPrint to print these types of things. Though the quality suffers, and the rumor is that they are destroying local community printers nationwide, for the price they can’t be beat. Check them out next time you want to customize your own holiday card or invitation.

Here’s how Lauren’s STDs turned out:
