(l to r: paul and erik)STORY:
in our communication studio course, the distinguished(and friendly) ERIK SPIEKERMANN
came by and spoke with us about our publications. i was extremely fortunate to have him take a moment to talk with me about my intentions, successes, and utter failures. he was a good sport to speak with everyone who asked, had a nice sense of humor, was on point, and was consistently inquisitive about all things. if you're reading this erik, thanks for coming in. it was a was a very memorable experience that no one will soon forget.
========================================WOOD AND NOISE:STORY:
lindsey and i went to hear THE DIRTY PROJECTORS
at the WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL
. i had only been here once before for something much less elaborate. this experience was perfect and not unwieldy as THE GETTY ADDRESS
could have been. it was, without a doubt, one of the greatest concert experiences i have ever had.
my kind communication studio teachers let me sneak away to check out the SEYMOUR CHWAST
talk at ART CENTER
. i've always loved the worked of PUSH PIN STUDIOS
and seeing him caused the blood to rush to my head. after the lecture, i got to talk with seymour for a second – and ask him what he thought was the most shaping experience he had while in college. he replied that high school was really a much more valuable experience for him, but that he was glad to have met milton while in college. it seemed really fitting coming from a man who's illustrations speak more to life than to technical prowess, which is why i've always loved them.
