10 seconds

Logo spot from David Alvarado on Vimeo.

I made this 10 second animation spot for my name. Did it all in after effects, was challenging at first but I finished it.

progress continues

So I am working on this little piece right here, I again am reworking the content of my next zine. It went from 16 pages to 20. I added 2 more comics and this drawing. It seems that the more I work on the zine the more I want to edit and remove and replace pieces from it.Hopefully these last revisions will be it. 

Also I stopped by quimbys  last week and picked up some nice zines. My collection of zines has been growing steady and has been a great resource for inspiration and ideas.

I have been reading some stuff from tezuka lately, he stuff is pretty awesome. The page above is from dororo story about a man born incomplete, missing parts of his body and and his journey to get them all back. 

So I also had to design a logo for a 7-10 second animated spot in my broadcast design class. This is it right here. I think the large pomp sums up what I am all about right now.

So a blizzard hit Chicago and this is the main road by my neighborhood. It was barley plowed and any cars that were on the road were moving very slowly, I saw more than one car get stuck and truck blow its tire out.

Also school had another snow day, I only went to school for a day and a half, 7 day weekend.
