This is my second Illustrator attempt. Still not sure why this image turned out in negative colors. The fish is supposed to be orange and the red portiuon is actually blue. Let me know if you know why this is happening.

Meat Cradle

This is the first image I made with Adobe Illustrator. It is the design for a restaurant that Drew and Corey will be opening called the Meat Cradle. The premise of this restaurant is that all dishes are comprised entirely of meats and topped with meat gravy. No dish has fewer than two meats, for a example a bacon wrapped sausage or a ham covered steak would be normal items. This is my proposition for their logo, a baby in a cradle reaching up towards a mobile of meats. I want to change the mobile and add a cradle and I'm not sure why it came out in these colors since the true colors are reds. Let me know what you think Drew and Corey.

Review of Ultra Violet

Ultra Violet: F

I saw the previews and was blown away by the visual effects of this movie. I took my seat in the theater, barely able to contain my excitement as the previews flew across the screen in a flashy comic book style. I saw the name of the director, Kurt Wimmer, and my heart skipped a beat; this film was written and directed by the same guy who did Equilibrium. Then the movie started. The first five minutes were packed with action and though I had no idea what was going on, I was excited. But the confusion continued and subsequently did not let up for the rest of the film. This movie was the biggest piece of lack luster, unmotivated bunk I have seen in a long time. There was no plot worth paying attention to and the action was so pointless and repetitive that I didn't care about how cool it looked, not to mention that the effects were all recycled from previous films and the fight scene were often so fast and anti-climactic that they weren't even worth including. To add to this list of failures the acting was intolerably bad which was understandable because the dialogue was utter garbage. This trash was forced upon the audience and Wimmer attempts to make it more epic and meaningful with the music, which in turn comes across as cheesy and over dramatic. The only things in this movie worthy of praise in fact were the costumes, sets and some of the ideas, though poorly implemented in the film. This movie should not exist and the fact that it does makes me lose all faith I ever had in Hollywood's ability to discern good from bad. Wimmer, where did you go wrong? This movie is so bad, it makes your earlier film worse by association. Seeing this movie is about as fun as giving yourself a frontal lobotomy and leaves you feeling about as intelligent afterwards.

Oh Snow!

The snow is holding back from completing my film shoot for my IS. So I used this opportunity instead to create a panoramic from my window.
