The Kern Monster is Loose!

My Graphics II class obviously loves me. This was drawn on the board while I was meeting with students. The tag around the octopus monster reads "Bosler". The other text reads "lo-res images", "magazine project" and "widow, you fail". The rest of it reads "Hi younger and less sleep-deprived CD majors... RUN while you still can! Yours Truly, Graphics 2 students."

I think this is hysterical, and true, so so true. Our classes are 6 hour studio studio classes with an equal amount of homework outside of class. Most of my students have 3-4 studio classes plus 1-2 academic classes. That makes for 24-30 hours of in-class time and 24-30 hours of homework time. It doesn't seem like much but it makes for regular all-nighters and tired students. (Student's time management skills are definitely lacking at this stage). Of course, add on top of all this a professor, me, who insists not only on good design, but good imagery, properly edited text and skillful use of InDesign and you get a terrifying octopus-like creature who runs the class. I love my job.

Note: props to Matt for creating this fabulous artwork. I love it!

haha! this is great. Graphics 2 is surely the ultimate test of the CD program. Must say the organization and strictness of the class truly revolutionized my work ethic. Much thanks!
