The whole CIA vibe was very lively and warm, everybody was really getting into the whole sketching spirit, like the bunch of geeky kids at heart we are. So now I want this to happen at CCS. We need organization!!
CIA sketch battle
Met Michael Ditullo tonight at the first annual CIA "sketch battle", you know the main moderator/organizer guy on core77.com, also chief Nike designer. Anyways, the sketch battle was really fun, they had 4 projectors and cintiqs set up with photoshop and sbp running, and heats of 4 (student) designers at a time. Wan of CIA Illustration ended up with 2nd place and Joe Spalding of CIA Product Design class of 2009 took first. And I got a superlative for "Best Style" which included a sweet plaque with cool shades plastered all over it. Wonderful.
