Thanksgiving 'Nawlins Style

I'm back from my trip to New Orleans, Louisiana for a thanksgiving family reunion. I have lots of pictures and stories to share, but I have so much homework, I really shouldn't be blogging. So I will post just a few photos to give y'all a taste.

You Tube Gems

I've yet to post you tube vid's on my blog, so here are two of my fave.

1) Dr. Dog's "Fools Life" set to a 1950's bicycle saftey video.

I just recently found out about Dr. Dog (thanks Shea) and they are becoming on of my favorite bands. They sort of sound like The Kinks but they are from my generation. "Fools Life" isn't my favorite song by them, but the way it sync's up to this crazy video is great. The video itself is great, kids in gorilla masks on old cruisers! I know I said only two videos but I was just reminded of this video that Megan showed me:
1b)Bat For Lashes- "Whats a Girl to Do"

Fast forward to 00:35 if your really impatient, but trust me you'll want to watch this a few times. I'm undecided on how much I like this band or not. But this vid, for sure.

2) Maru the Cat

So, this isn't new so you may have already seen it, perhaps I even showed it to you. It makes everyone laugh, alot. What is it about sprawled fat cats that is universally enjoyable? What I just typed reminds me of this great Tapir Vid comment...

2b) Tapir Massage

Back in GD1 I was working on a project that involved a lot of Tapir Research and lead me into the AMAZING world of tapir videos on you tube (beware of seemingly innocent video titles like "Tapir eating bread" which is really a vid of the tapirs extremly freakishly long penis.) The best part is the comments section! Tapir fanatics and weirdos alike post off the wall comments, I have screen shots somewhere, but here are just some I copied:
(I know there are alot below, but I seriously restrained my self, these are only some of the great comments)

what the?!?!?!
0:15: hand goes down and away...
0:18: tapir's leg starts to go up extra far...
0:25: you see her arm start moving back and forth again, and the tapir's leg goes back down...
tell me she's not rubbing its privates... :(
My fave comment:

Whatever it is about tapirs that inspire the jump blues, i get it.

For Jack

Some fashion drawings I did on construction paper last semester, found them while rummaging through stuff to sell at the art sale. BUT the night before, I did this drawing of Naomi Campbell, from an YSL ad in W magazine. Once I saw this ad, I got why Jack likes her.

Baier Likes Tinkertoys

I just finished my last advising appointment, and dropped off my class registration for my last semester at MCAD!!! The end is nigh. Here are 2 projects I just wrapped up:
TINKER TOYS- rebranding (logo + packaging for GD2) Check out the triangluar box I made:

Thanks to Lauren for all her support and excitment throughout this project.

Next, for Illustration I drew some Astrological Signs, the only problem is I did them really fast! So I don't know if they're really DONE or NOT? Can you guess what sign they are? (Abby?)

Thanks to Andres for the vellum!

My First Design Post!

Heres a quickie, for Typography 2 I spelled out a message in a real environment! Something I always thought of doing while stuffing 800 mailboxes while working in student affairs.
