A late night post

Been tired, bored and wanted to do something. I remember once getting really into her music one summer night. Tonight I reminisced that and this is what I came up with.



Now looking at it... it's not finished.. will re-work it.

Good ole Edge 102.1

I love the Sunday night program Martin Streek hosts on the local radio station 102.1 the edge... So tonight in the flood of 80s music that I love so much from the program I created a poster thanking Martin!

Bass Sluts

So tonight people were over and a girl was shouting, "the bass is so good" at the top her lungs. I thought about how chocolate is so on the way out the door no matter how good it may be haha.

I also just looked at the last update... I really need to get more vulgar and horny posts up. Shit.

Bass Sluts is the title of this.

Truly Experimental

My beginnings in a truly experimental field. I am just getting to know the ropes I guess which such a strange subject matter in the sense of design... not at all strange to me in real life haha. I a little more vulgar stuff in mind, but that is for another day!

Enjoy!

Avant Garde

I've decided that my work will take drastic changes in the next couple months. I will start formulating how, as it will take a while to conceptualize fully and functionally. We shall see!

A hint: it may be geared towards the form of sexual exploration

When will we run out?

So today I was wondering while my professor was setting up her podcasting program, "when will we run out of space, even for electronic data."

It is a scary thought to think of, that one day even space for data will run out. Podcasts spanning two hours, videocasts, youtube, my blog even! We can make more data storage that holds a lot of info, considering we have terabytes now, but think about it. Space will always be taken up by digital space no matter how small we can physically make processors.

In this thought I felt like illustrating it through condensed type on a page. Representing a microchip.

Obsession

I find lately that I have a very active obsession with a building in New York City. It goes by the name Seagram Building and in my wake of obsession I have created a wallpaper. Yes, the cliché wallpaper all amateur designers do. I do not care what people think about me for this, I want to show my love and affection for a building that embodies something I really love. Which is the infamous grid system and modernist aesthetics. Regardless, this building is a true gem and should be viewed whenever someone is in NYC.

The Beginning

First I would like to direct you to a small collection of work that is hosted on issuu.com.
DSPortfolio

Now with that out of the way I would like to complete the introduction.

My name is Dillon Scheenaard, and I herald from the great white north of Canada. I live in Toronto, Ontario and am attending Ontario College of Art & Design for advertising design.

As time passes I will upload work that I have done from this date on. My passions stem from the modernist graphic designers such as Josef Müller-Brockman, Armin Hoffman, A. M. Cassandre and my personal favourite, Wolfgang Weingart. I enjoy the clean and well structured compositions of them all, with the excuse of Weingart who of course had a structured chaos in many of his works.

Now to show a piece.

This page is an illustration of a song by Status Quo, evidently titled "Again & Again". In titles I can be anal retentive and the word "and" will never show up, they are always replaced with an ampersand. This page helps to demonstrate my minor OCD with this subject.
