Hi I'm Sheridan McMillan and it has been a while since I've been here. I'm working on a magazine in my Creative Technologies course at Weltec Petone campus, Wellington, New Zealand.

Here is the cover page for you to look at, it's supposed to be a personal magazine but you can incorporate influences and personalize it the way you want in PhotoShop CS 5.5 and Illustrator throughout the course.

I'm Spiderman and no one can stop me.

I think you are missing the whole look of it.

If you meant sick as in it looks cool than yeah it's really sick dude.

I have to agree with G200. With all the shootings happening, why would you post something like this?

Calm down. Everyone has different views on what is cool and what not.

I don't get what the big idea is if you are making excuses like "why would you post this... Shootings happen everyday blah blah".

Even though I respect your comments I don't think it's wise to put down a Personal Project that is an assignment for design work let alone whining about how shootings are going on even though it's unrelated and stupid to just say such a thing.

I'm sorry you have to see such a thing so I'm going to be nice to you guys and I'm going to remove the wound from the head so that you feel comfortable about his tattoo being the bar-code and price tag.

He's not from the US. Don't expect him to be up-to-date on US news.

Well then, I think your artwork is tasteless then. I'm moving on and
will not argue anymore. Good day.

Interesting.

Might be helpful to explain what this is. Is the space on the left for options to click on for articles that change from week to week? If so what sort of articles are you going to post? i am guessing from previous version it is counter culture stuff. What is your target audience?

I like the bald head and bar code. i like the stonework layer, but it makes for busy texture, once you add a few things.

The title at the top is a little hard to read (doesn't help that i am partially color blind no doubt)... the colors are a bit tough mix with the more natural colors that dominate the rest of the page. That fade out on text to the left is a bit excessive, makes it hard read on my screen. Not sure what the rest of the painted in stuff is or represents, but might make more sence with a bit more info...

I believe you said this something some of us would use and customize? Art should follow function on this IMHO.

I'm working on a magazine in my Creative Technologies
Is a magazine supposed to be a creative technology?

It used to have a bullet wound at the back of his head for a cool effect but someone on this forum is too soft to handle it so I changed it.

And I get what you mean by Creative technologies mixing in with personal magazines. Unless I draw everything and scan it in it's not creative so point taken.

anyway here's the contents page.

No I wasn't being critical of your work. I was being critical of the school. But I guess I'm thinking of paper magazines which are becoming extinct and not much of a "technology". The creative part now is in creating a digital magazine that people would pay for vs free content. Or is a "personal magazine" just another name for a diary?

It's interesting that you think a bullet hole in the back of someone's head is "cool". It makes me wonder what the heck happened to your sense of morality

I got it. Have the guy shooting his brains out but with no real gore. The top of his head is gone with the fragments up in the air and rasterized along the fragment edges to look 'digital'. Where the brain would be, have a bunch of Internet trolls trying to escape. Make the trolls look obnoxious but cartoony. I don't think that's too cliche' and makes more of a statement the random things you deem cool. Then resist the temptation to describe your work and tell your class that you were after their interpretations. You will be deemed one artsy fartsy mofo.
