I gave a talk on "Creating Webcomics" at PodCamp Pittsburgh 4 this past weekend. (Yeah, yeah, let's make the obvious jokes about my current productivity.) If anyone's interested, you can download the presentation files by clicking the image below. I realize that this sort of presentation is practically useless without some accompanying audio. Fortunately, local startup Vivo was recording and streaming all the sessions and as soon as they're available for download I'll add a link to this post.
Walk of the Dead
This past Sunday was the annual "Walk of the Dead," where Pittsburghers of all stripes put on their best zombie finery and and march — well, shamble, really — through the Monroeville Mall (famous as setting for George Romero's landmark Dawn of the Dead). Of course, I was there to take photos of it for you at great personal risk. (Zombies can smell high-quality brains like mine from miles away.)
You can see some more photos over in my Flickr photostream and read more about the event here.
Earlier this week I noticed another Shepard Fairey mural on the side of Smokin' Joe's Saloon on the South Side. When I first went hunting for murals Rob and I ate at Smokin' Joe's and completely failed to notice the mural. In addition, my office is only two blocks away from the mural which means I've been passing it every day for two months without noticing it. Frankly, that's embarassing.
"Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand, SuperTrash & Unnatural Rubber" starts tomorrow at the Warhol Museum and continues through January 31st.
Higher-resolution versions are available in my Flickr photosteram, as usual.
