botchedspotWhen you enter a room, does entrance music play through your head? When you’re at work, do you try to decide what submission moves would best take out your co-workers?  Don’t hide the fact that you’re a wrestling fan – embrace it with  Botchedpot.com!

Graduate student James Horsnby has launched his wrestling-themed Web comic!  Hornsby has been a fan of both comics and wrestling for years, so it was an easy thing for him to combine his two passions.  Botchedspot updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

PODCAST 01: HEADLINES, ZUDA, & MUST READS

Posted on 27 April 2008 by admin

Listen to the inaugural episode of SEQALAB – the definitive podcast for comic creators and enthusiasts. SCAD students Rashad Doucet, Jarrett Williams, Nat “MoneyBox” Landry, and Shazzbaa Bennett join professor Jeremy Mullins for a rundown of comic book industry headlines, the Big Topic panel discussion, and this week’s recommended “must reads.” Nat tells a story about freestylin’ with Ghostface Killah, and Rashad gives us an insider’s look at the Zuda experience! Special Note: SEQALAB intro, outro, and segment buffer music was provided by none other than professor Dove McHargue!  

PRODUCER’S NOTE: The vocal levels on this show are a little low, you may have to turn the volume up just a tad. The recording problem has been identified, so all shows going forward (with the exception of this week’s Thursday show – it was recorded at the same time as this episode) will be at normal levels. Thank you for your patience as we make it past the learning curve.

GOOD IS DEAD: CHIP KIDD AT TRUSTEES THEATER

Posted on 14 April 2008 by admin

Chip Kidd, graphic designer and writer will be giving a presentation Wednesday, April 16 at the Trustees Theater.

Why should you go? Read on. . .

His first novel, The Cheese Monkeys, was a national bestseller and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. His first book, Batman Collected, was awarded the Design Distinction award from ID magazine. He is the co-author and designer of the two-time Eisner award-winning Batman Animated. He is the editor-at-large for Pantheon, where he has overseen the publication of Chris Ware’s Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, Dan Clowes’s David Boring, and the definitive book of the art of Charles Schulz, Peanuts (designed, edited, and with commentary by Mr. Kidd). He has also written about graphic design and popular culture for McSweeney’s, Vogue, The New York Times, The New York Observer, Entertainment Weekly, Details, 2WICE, The New York Post, ID, and Print.

His book jacket designs for Alfred A. Knopf (where he is associate art director) have helped spawn a revolution in the art of American book packaging. His work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Eye, Print, Entertainment Weekly, The New Republic, Time, Graphis, New York, and ID magazines, and he is a regular contributor of visual commentary to the Op-Ed page of The New York Times.

His designs have been described as “Monstrously ugly” (John Updike), “apparently obvious” (William Boyd), “Faithful flat-earth rendering” (Don DeLillo), “surprisingly elegant” (A. S. Mehta), “a distinguished parochial comic balding Episcopal priest” (Allan Gurganus), “Two colors plus a sash” (Martin Amis) and “not a piece of hype. My book was lucky.” (Robert Hughes).

Mr. Kidd is also the lead vocalist, percussionist, lyricist, and co-songwriter in artbreak, a new band described as “The New Pornographers meet The Cars” (Unbeige).

He does not, apparently, sleep.
