ok. for the final project of my photo class, we are putting together a magazine. everybody gets 2 pages to fill with whatever they want, so as you can imagine, the topics and styles are gonna be wide and varied.

which is where the problem comes in. our mag needs a title and some kind of image to put on the cover. we've got nothing.

so i'm asking people to put on their thinking caps, hats, toques, hoods, turbans, and fedoras and please help poor ickle jicama and her class mates come up with some good ideas!

How about making the mag all about me! I'm kidding of course.

What kind of thing are you thinking of? Serious topics? Fun Comedy? Satire? Making fun of dimwhits?

all of the above. there is no real unifying theme in our work, which is why designing a cover is so difficult... so far the best idea is to just make the cover all blue!

How about some abstract design that has bunches of swirlies and maybe a pic of a toilet here and a rose there?

title: why cheese is the superior food source that is favored 3 gods to 1, and other bits of random topics that wouldnt normally be put together in one binding.

pictures: a pegases(sp?), and maybe some random funny pictures you find online. and willy e. coyote.

How about taking a bunch of bio text books, photocopying random pages, ripping them up and pasting them together... Does that make sense? I think it would look all abstract and worrisome with all the animal parts and plant bits all muddled up together. It would show that everything in the magazine is of the same sort of material but there's really no unifying theme...

I'm overthinking this, aren't I?

Ok I threw some stuff together to see if you like it for a cover. Gank it if you like, I just kind of wanted to play with the idea. I did one with a title one without.

Without Title

With Title

Wow, every time I think I'm getting good at making cool junk on Photoshop, along comes The Mighty-Spiff Lo to remind me I don't know squat!!! (hehe toilet pun tongue.gif)

Those are ragin'-cool cover pages!!! Although (here comes the "Ratt's Two Cents" part) maybe only two toilets instead of the whole flush line....they kinda dominate the page.

Awwww *blush* Ty!!! That means a lot to me, honest; I really admire the stuff I've seen of yours. I honestly think that between the two of us, there's absolutely NO contest as to who's better at nifty Photoshop stuff though.

That's odd because I look at the stuff you do and think, "Damn I've got a lot to learn still." I think we've gotten off topic though and I don't know how to throw it back on topic. laugh.gif

I was reading through and noticed Tortured Soul ideas and thought this bit of it sounded good as a title

Absract Tendencies

Still keeps it simple and get the idea across

Lolo that was cool!

KonSept?

KonSeptuel?

Con (sept)

con-sept?

(con)-sept

con/sept

Seriously, all the artist catalogues I've read lately have had titles split, hyphenated, bracketed, or otherwise made into pluralisms or attempts to deconstruct language like the last 4 examples I give here. It must be fad or something. Annoys the hell out of me personally.

I cant get this thaught out of my head, so I best reply ....

you know the thing with 'Confucious Say bla bla bla bla' where he spits out some sound and simple metaphors and such .... well what if we combine that deal and the expression "to call a cat 'a cat'" ... and call it "Confucious' Cat" ? It would be confusing, to the point (or a point) and involves felines ... you KNOW some good stuff could come out of confucious' cat, bless the little moggy ... It also sounds vaguely dirty if heard in a poor acoustic invironment, or spoken quickly whilst under the influence, and brings to mind The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for you geeks out there ... If chosen the word 'pab' must appear somewhere in the first edition, so there.
