Well, it's been a while. We were busy over the summer— and beyond. One of the things we were chasing morphed into reality. Working with Exhibitology from Paterson, New Jersey, we are planning and designing a Hertiage Center (read: corporate history museum) for Tupperware brands at their headquarters in Orlando, Florida.

This is a great project. Right now, the in-house work group is… um… working on the story. We hope to have the exhibit up and running for their annual Jubilee meeting, August, 2011.

I'm sure i'll be publishing progress reports, but here's an example of the kinds of fun materials lurking in the archives.

Great Site for Free Vector Art It's free! Well, I felt guilty, so I paid him an honorarium. Of course, I'm prejudiced— he posted an invitation I designed that used some of his art.

Ben draws his work by hand in Illustrator (can we really still use the terms "draw" and "by hand" to refer to something created digitally?). I have also been playing with Live Trace in Illustrator and, with much tinkering, have gotten some interesting results.

We are working with the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York ( A new exhibit will announce and promote the New York world premiere of the movie "Watchmen" (

After a slow start, we have wonderful original artwork from the DC series, production art and artifacts from the movie, and beautiful images from the accompanying coffee-table books.

Link To a Comic Art Exhibit

We worked on this, but it's a cool show, nevertheless. Nice blog at the end of the link, too.

Mighty Cthulhu Disavows Association with John McCain

Dead but dreaming and communicating telepathically from his headquarters in the cyclopean depths of sunken R’lyeh, the tentacle-faced Great Old One denied any association with Senator McCain or his presidential campaign.

“Sure, my earthly cult is composed of cannibalistic psychopaths, and they may have sacrificed a virgin or two, but Senator McCain and Governor Palin have stepped beyond the pale in both the strategy and tactics of the Republican campaign”, he said.

“I may be a hideous monster from the twisted spaces between the stars, but even We balk at the unspeakable maunderings of McCain’s campaign. One day that boy’s gonna blow” The Great One added, “and I’m glad I’ll be about 5,000 fathoms under the Atlantic when it happens.”

Non-partisan Election Note

I'll be in Chicago for a work-related thing on the day of the election. So I voted by absentee ballot. I don't know why everyone doesn't do this. It's fast, convenient, no crowds, no challenges at the polls, no weather trouble, and you have time to think about your decision(s)— all those judges! (Though, unlike Illinois, none were on the ballot in my new Connecticut home. I think the magic happy-unicorn judge fairy sprinkles judge-dust somewhere.)

And you have an automatic receipt because the ballot number and your name/address are recorded (by hand, with exquisite, painstakingly slow, Town-Clerk-y care) in a ledger.

If I recall, the she did not even ask for ID (!) or proof that I would, in fact, be out of town. She did say that this year they were "swamped".

So, until internet voting is perfected, it's absentee every time for this Concerned Citizen.
