    So, I finished my Illustrator course about 22 weeks ago, and I haven't spent much time in the program at all. Since I didn't want to forget any of the basics and such, I decided to work on some quick, short-burst work in the little free time I had.

    In the end, I decided to contribute some pieces toward the development of Tempcast, everyone's favorite podcast!

    Played around with this at first, attempting to make a splash page advert for Tempcast that was video game related/referential somehow. Advert is a nod to the old Text Adventure title, Zork. Also contains a small reference to the first five minutes of Episode 15: Part 1 in which Hadrian uses the power of song to transform the Tempcast into a porno.

    First version of album cover for Tempcast. Thrown together in about 2 minutes. So easy, even a monkey can do it. Decent but not design-y enough. Very lazy. Trashed it.

    Second version of album cover for Tempcast. Completely re-hauled and redesigned to reference the original logo more closely. Totally kawaii.


    Yea, so, mission accomplished! Resparked my knowledge of Ai AND now my Zune/iTunes won't display a blank album cover for Tempcast anymore! [​IMG]

    Feedback would make me a happy panda. [​IMG]

    The 11-week Illustrator course took place on-campus at my Uni last Fall.

    These works have nothing to do with the work done in that course, but I didn't want to forget some of the basic things I learned from way back then.

    Ai is actually pretty easy to pick up and learn, a few video tutorials should do the trick.

    I'll use the 3rd one to advertise the next Tempcast Live, probably announce that properly on Friday.

    To be honest, I liked the second one the best. Maybe it's just me.
