Agency Life, Weekend Recap

Weekend Recap: Working and More Working


Yes, I spent the weekend working. A necessary evil at times in the advertising industry, though it might not be what you think. I spent the weekend drawing storyboards. Besides being on a weekend, it’s nice to get back to the simplicity of drawing. There’s no relying on Illustrator or Photoshop to generate a perfect finished product.

There’s something beautiful about a hand-drawn line. The simple waves of ink caused by human movement. You must be confident in your plan before beginning because error means you must start completely over.

 

There’s a documentary called Beautiful Losers that I absolutely recommend. It’s about just that. The beauty of imperfection and how the industrialized world sometimes craves or needs organic type work to feel human again.
