Thanks so much to everyone who came to the meeting last night! We are just getting started and I hope you continue to come to the meetings as it keeps the momentum of the group moving and we have a lot of fun things planned.
First off I want to remind everyone that submissions for the Illustration 24 logo contest have to be at next weeks meeting, Wednesday the 19th. This is a great chance to do something creative that will be seen by a lot of people! Additionally it's a great opportunity to show everyone what we can do as a group and play a bigger role in an event that hopefully will continue to grow as it happens annually. Also a note, we are going to be screen printing the logo onto T-Shirts so they need to be one color and typically anything smaller than a .05 micron (sorry for the odd measurement but I'm guessing you all have a rough idea of what that is) will not print well. I'm attaching the current mark that is being used and will be replaced by the winning design.
Also, last night we voted on the movies we will be screening for movie night and we will be watching Summer Wars, The Illusionist and Akira. Start thinking about poster designs! We print some 8x11 and some 9x13. I am including an Illustrator template that Charlie created last year so you can just drop your design into that or if you would like you can do all the lettering and information yourself. Here's some links to people who do some really great posters and there's also a lot of cool fan posters on pinterest so I'm linking that too.
Finally, before this gets way too long, I'd really like to send John Baizley a get well...something. If anyone wants to do a drawing for him I know he would appreciate the gesture and I'll get a card together that anyone who wants to can sign at the next meeting.
Here's a link to his website http://aperfectmonster.com/
Thanks so much to everyone for coming out, I'm looking forward to working with you all this year!
