UPDATE- FRIDAY APRIL 25: Well, after having such a cool weekend, when my brother's post (with my graphics) did bonkers on Kotaku and got as high as #2 on Digg (and the same night I got to see Negativland perform for the first time in 15 years), I was shocked to find out on Monday that I was being laid off. No one was expecting it, I wasn't the only one, and every one of my supervisors, to a man, said they absolutely want me back as soon as they turn things around. They hope to do this in about three months.
At any rate, I am now unemployed and looking for work. Perhaps you live in the Austin Texas area and know of a job opening for a graphic designer. Or maybe you have need for a freelance designer's services. You can see my portfolio and resume on the main page. I'm still in the process of updating it for my most recent work.
If none of the above pertains to you, that's cool. If you'd still like to help me out with my (surely temporary) situation, maybe you'd like to order something from my CafePress store. After so many people laughed over my "THEY GHOSTS" quote, I thought WTF I'll make a t-shirt out of it. Because I don't want to get in copyright trouble with Namco, the artwork is not the graphics of Pac doing his business. Sorry.
And please email me comments! It'd really cheer me up. I'd love to hear anything you'd like to say from any of you who enjoyed the Kotaku post. Especially if you'd like to see THEY GHOSTS on something other than the t-shirts I've got up for sale right now. Or if you have an idea for putting THEY GHOSTS above a different graphic element from the post (again without stepping on copyright toes).
SUNDAY APRIL 20: Special for those of you who found your way here thanks to Kotaku- here's the up-rezzed version of the tunnel graphic from the Pac-Man poop article. I originally emailed him the wrong version- note the stool sample has a flat underside now, correctly depicting the game's side-on view instead of the top-down view used for the graphic on Kotaku. And thanks for all the great comments- I had no idea this was what would happen when my brother told me what he wanted to do with our IM conversation.
Also, here's the original version of the graphic of Pac on the john. This is obviously post-powerdump.
Also, my collection of AIM personal icons, from a lot of video games and a few other pop culture sources.
