I'm currently taking a course at OCAD dealing with the new directions in pictorial design, integrating type/design with illustration. I had Mikey Richardson as an instructor in the first half of the course (wherein I did the assignments with Sleepy Hollow and the Honda Mascot, which I posted in this blog), and Graham Roumieu for the last half.

I'll probably also post my entries here as well, just for kicks.
