I Has Made Many Arts

Jeff Shyluk's art blog has inspired me to look through my archives to uncover some of my own "art." Those scare quotes are well chosen, as you'll see.

Back when I was making short films for fun, I designed these logos for my imaginary production company, Paranoid Productions. The first one is an incredibly lazy knockoff of the Paramount logo, probably actionable. I think my font choice was inspired, though. I like the second one much more, but it's important to note that it's based on a design by the aforementioned Jeff Shyluk:

As you can see, all I did was take Jeff's way cool, surreal design and make it two-dimensional. That was my intent, anyway. I hope Jeff doesn't mind my reproduction of his art here!

Back when I was sending out my satirical newsletter, Blazing Earl News, to my friends, I often abused Photoshop, as seen here. Jeff himself guest-stars!

This masterpiece is from another issue of Blazing Earl News. That's supposed to be Redjac departing Admiral Kirk's body.

These Photoshop creations are of more recent vintage - I think I created them five or six years ago. I know I can never make this movie myself, but I thought the title was amusing enough to hint at a possible imaginary film.

Back in grade school, I really enjoyed art class, but my efforts, as you might guess, were always somewhat disappointing. But even in the absence of talent, I still have fun dabbling in pursuits outside my normal comfort zone.
