Well, alas … the Blues cannot make the finals this year and we have lost our coach Brett Ratten in the process. I drew this pic of young Josh Bootsma some time ago but haven’t had the chance to use it since he hasn’t been selected for a while. Here it is, despite him not playing this week. There’s a few other first gamers tht’ve been red hot crackers this year … i’m looking fotward to seeing Tom Bell smash into the midfield in the future, and I gotta say that i very much enjoyed Levi Casboult’s efforts thus far in his senior career.
An interesting blog from Nadine

During my visit in Christchurch this typeface really stood out to me. It seemed to be an extremely versatile typeface, used in a clear uppercase version for signage, and can also occur more ornamental, for example for the use of cards. Looking closer, I discovered that there seemed to be more than one version of each characters (alternates), some more playful, others more clear. After doing some research I found out that Jeremy Tankard Typography was commissioned to design a new typeface the art gallery in New Zealand. The design is based on the heritage of the Maori culture as well clearly showing keltic roots. The typeface is core to the new gallery and is used extensively for signage and communication material. The Aspect type family is the public release version of this typeface. Fantastic to see a typeface forming the heart of a Visual Identity and such a well considered…

Gibbsy is a bit of a gun, I, amongst many, would like to see him in the midfield one day … but in the meantime – Mr Utility it is!!!

I’m quite fond of these pages … I’m a bit of a dag but I find them funny. I didn’t change much with the text in these sections. The cannibalism section is a little shocking in contrast to the rest of the comic which doesn’t have fantasy sections which are quite so full-on … but I think that’s a nice way to break the comic up a bit and refresh the reader throughout these long cadenzas of wordiness and concepts. I was worried that long periods of lecture-like talking might be a little grating so the jokes and munching were a necessity.
I love this dude – he’s so damn athletic and he looks a little like a wolf roving around. He doesn’t really run so much as lope. And he’s such a good mark!!
AND – he’s played for the mighty Blues for 150 games!!!! This week against the mighty Swans at Etihad (where we haven’t had the best bunch of games, it must be said).

(By the way – just ignore the bits in the picture that say Round 7 and The Saints … I drew this months ago and then found out that he was being rested, then injured … and then he didn’t come back until this round – … so he didn’t reach 150 until this week … I’ll fix it up after I get the score at the end of the game)
