Trick or Tweet...


Okay Rich. I guess I'm blogging for you... well good enough. I guess Stefane's busy and Matt's moody and Gerby's out hoisting a few in a London Pub, but you're here and that's fine with me. This visual is the second in the series of unused and overlooked art from the old WB Stores. Marker again, and a scan of a color copy. But, maybe you and a few others will enjoy it.

I'm trying for a Halloween Theme this month, so let's see how well it goes.

God knows commercial art can be scary.

It was nice talking to you about your thoughts on art Vince....very enlightening and refreshing.

I'm glad you're sharing these little gems.

Vince M said...

Thanks Rich, I feel the same way.

It's great being in a creative group that communicates so well, in art and discussion.

hey c'mon Vince. I check in regularly.

Anyway, what killed these? Was it some know-it-all girl designer at WB? weren't these "on trend"? girls don't know nuthin' 'bout cartoons. well, some girls do i guess... girl graphic designers who work in the product industry don't know nuthin' 'bout cartoons and the men that love them.

Okay, John, simmer down.

First of all-thank you for checking in regularly, your involvement means a lot to me.

Who killed the concept? Mr. Budget did it in the boardroom with an axe. Some years we'd have huge Halloween programs, other years they were very small. Maybe 5 sku's.

These were my concepts, but if I remember correctly the typograghy was done by a very talented designer named Dianne Kai, who is currently with The Disney Stores.

I love your history of being a commercial artist. You are so humble and honest. No wonder you are so good--you have lots of experience.

Vince M said...

I've also met a lot of wonderful and talented people along the way, and I count you as one of them.

Thanks for the kind words.

Kimberly M. Zamlich said...

wow, John. that's a sexist remark. Greg's a girl and he loves cartoons!

Vince M said...

Huh?
