My Bit for America’s Summer Camps

My project for the last few days (aside from scripting my twelfth "Mark the Art Guy" episode) has been designing a magazine advertisement for the American Camp Association.

Which reminds me that I never showed you the poster at left, which I designed for the ACA last fall. It was mainly created for display in MetroNorth stations I’ll never see, but I’ve been told by someone who should know that it can also be seen right now on some wall somewhere in the bowels of New York City’s Grand Central Station.

I call that cool!

Unfortunately, since the end products of graphic design gigs like this aren’t at all cartoony and don’t include my signature, no one will know that I had a hand in bringing this poster into being unless I hang around Grand Central Station buttonholing passers-by and muttering "Hey, y’see that poster. I did that poster!" Which I suppose I could do — but probably won’t, since it sounds like a kind of behavior that could easily be mistaken for psychotic.

Life just isn’t fair to us emotionally needy artists who crave affirmation from an uncaring public.
