I prefer the "happy" home, but to each his own. De gustibus non disputandum, as some say.

Very cool you're into graphic design, it's a hugely creative field and wonderfully intricate.


I looked it over. Very nice, very nice indeed. In that modest selection I saw a variety of styles and approaches, which shows great brain at work, which makes me happy.

As far as being a graphic designer, I have everything I need except employment in same. I was great at picking up the skill. At networking and finding work, not so much. But once you get into designing, you can't really get out, even if you can't find a job doing it, you can't stop thinking about how you'd do something, giving the chance.

To me, the hallmark of a designer is the reluctance to accept the default settings on your word processor, layout application, life … whatever.

Winsor McCay (Little Nemo - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Nemo), Chris Ware (Arme Novelty Library - http://www.linesandcolors.com/images/20 ... re_450.jpg). You can look at their works in good bookstores.
I finally got to see some DiFate art up close at the last OryCon.

Yep, he's interesting, but as for his book Infinite Worlds, it's actually a coffeetable book about the (old and new) masters of (American) fantastic art as it appeared on book covers and magazines like Amazing Stories. It has chapters on the Dillons and everybody else along with reproductions of covers and originals. Don't know if the book has been topped yet - it's from the early 90s.
That's just for clarification.

Seriously, thanks for the clarification. I was never exposed to Little Nemo as a kid, I was late in coming to Tintin for that matter (with which I"m sloppy in love).

I'll have to get me into Infinite Worlds, seriously. that sounds like a ton'o'fun.
