DUIT NAO... or you SUCK...

OH SNAP IT’S BEEN FUH’EVA’!

OH SNAP HEY, GUYS! I am TOTALLY makin’ a new post, before my URL times out’n’stuff. That’s lame. SO YEAH, few thangs have changed since then… LIKE MY HAIR! But it’s messy right now, so I’m not sharin’ pics (aaaawwwww)…

SO ANYWAY: I didn’t really have a subject or a gameplan, so… I’m just wangin’ it. Or wingin’ it, that sounds weird. Here’s how my class schedule goes

I'm happy, and you should be happy for me. Why? BECUASE I GOT INTO GRAPHIC DESIGN 105!


DSGD 105 is the gateway to both heaven AND hell. It’s the class you take before you get into the BFA Graphic Design program at SJSU, but you have to be ACCEPTED into that class. Either way, it’s like a right of passage.

Heaven, because: If you get through the entire program with high grades, you’re (almost) guaranteed a solid and respectable job in Graphic Design. And if you don’t get that at the end, you get some props. Like a high five. I volunteered to do that next year.

Hell, because: YOU WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK, AND IF YOU GET A CHANCE…breeeaaaaaathe….You cool? You aight? GO BACK TO WORKWORKWORKWORKWIFOAWJFAWIEJF

But it’s cool, becuase I LOVE design work. Here’s some recent work:

 

Not in any particular order. Anyway other cool stuff about new stuff later, I’m… out of things I feel like sayin’…

And so, I’ve moved on! Jozzuv Lol in sight!

So my domain: purchased! I now own Jeiji Design!! Too bad “Jeiji.com” has already been taken… Some Chinese site, I guess you could check it out if you are interested. But I’ve decided to keep updating this blog with my personal experiences, not necessarily related to design. More related to other things I care about. Like skating, or movies, or videogames. Y’know. Things that won’t further my success in the world. So anyways, go check out the new site, Jeiji Design!! Digg, tweet, Post, pass it on, and I’ll be your best friend. Forever. Alsooooo…. JOZZUV LOL’S PRINTING IS ON IT’S WAY! As soon as my check is deposited, I’ll be planning the printing process for the orange glory that is the laughing tiger. LOOK OUT FOR IT! I’d probably post it to my portfolio when it’s printed, so yeah. GOOD THINGS! GOOOOOD THINGS!

Jozzuv Lol! (Lol Tiger)

Threadless Sub: The Saddest Song

Posted in Design, Life and General with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2010 by jeiji

So, in order to help me laugh through some of the hardship I’m going through right now, and to help fund a massive debt I have put on my heart to pay, I subbed a design to Threadless! I have  a few designs up there. But this design was to help me laugh at myself and move on from heartbreak, and lost friendships:

The Saddest Song Design ShotI’ve cried a river, sung my songs, written my poems, and gone through all the drama. Now, it’s time to move on. this design started as a simple sketch:

It was drawn so huge that I had to draw and ink the pegbox of the violin on a separate page. Even having to scan the image multiple times and merge them in photoshop. Then I inked it all:

And placed them on shirts:

Just a lil’ simple photoshop magic. But anyways, here’s a link to the shirt on Threadless. Help me get printed, and vote and comment on it!

Thanks!

What’ve I been up to lately?

This is it: Resumé+Portfolio for Part-Time Design Position!!!

Posted in Design, Life and General with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2010 by jeiji

Raaaaaaaagh, I’m so NERVOUS! I just sent out my resumé and portfolio for an on-campus job! I really hope it’s a strong combo, because this would be the perfect job for me. I need AAAAALLL kindsa’ prayer and support, hah. I’ve actually been waiting for this job for like a year-and-a-half, about. When I was first interested in it, I was working for Spartan Catering (terrible job, BTW…), and wanted to do some design work for Spartan Shops. The position was filled by someone in the BFA (Bachelor’s of Fine Arts) program, and she was apparently hot stuff. The BFA Graphic Design program here at San José State University is very rigorous and competitive; they only accept 20 applicants per year! So if I even get the job, I’ve got some big shoes to fill, and the competition for this job must be intense. I really hope to learn a lot, too. They will be needing lots of web design-types of things, or so the interviewer said as she advertised the position in my Typography class yesterday. Anyways, here’s the goods, and back me up with prayer and good wishes! Also, tell me what you think of my combo. Is it a 1-2 punch knock-out?

Resumé:

Portfolio:

Members of the Art Hausu made it into the portfolio, lol!!

Tell me what you think! I would love some feedback from you guys, it’d really help calm my nerves, and I’m just interested to hear some responses. Thanks for lookin’! God bless!
