Yup, I have four days to do this final project. Thanks to the holiday chaos and my new side project for sucking up all my time and passion! Not that I am complaining, certainly grateful for both. But the show over at 12 Months must still go on, even in the event that I might be just a teensy bit more excited about my side project right now and really kind of annoyed by my final project (yup, I am). I was hoping this final one would be a grand thing, a month of sitting and reflecting over the year with cocoa in hand and cats curled up next to me.
Well, obviously that doesn’t happen when you have lots of wonderful presents to buy and a home to decorate and parties to go to and oh yeah like 3 or 4 other side projects you are working on! Instead, that wonderfully should-have-been-reflective final month ends up flying right past you. *sigh* A little sad, but I will not let it get me down. I still plan to take some time very soon to write a novel of a post about all the groovy things I have gained from this year-long journey. But for now, I need to make a few last “Merry Christmas” phone calls, so I am going to leave you with some tidbits of inspiration for my final project! Here are some posters that are inspiring me right now… I’m exploring either an all-type poster or an iconic graphic poster.
By Jon Contino
By Katie Daisy of The Wheatfield

By Justin Van Genderen (yes, I’m a hard core Star Wars nerd. This is the most awesome poster ever)
I’m still unsure as to the direction this poster will go in – but for now I’ve narrowed it to these twodirections of type or iconic graphic. I’m going to hunt through some of my old poetry tomorrow night and see what I dig up. Back in high school/early college were definitely some difficult times in my life and I thought perhaps sharing some of the very honest poetry from back then might be a great way to tough on the theme of “Looking Inside”. Damn, I really am excited about this project and wish I wasn’t so rushed. Oh well – will just do the best with what time I’ve got left!
