Awww, Snap! Look Who’s In The HOUSE! Whose House?
OUR MOTHER SHUCKING HOUSE!!!
There are moments that are exciting.
You know… those moments that make your heart beat a little faster, or put a grin on your face, or that make you think “Gee, I guess I AM doing something right.”
Those types of moments are what I call an “average exciting” moment.
Well, I just had an “Oh my effing lord I’m like crazy effing insanely excited” moment.
My good friends over at Dark Øverlord Media (DØM)–A Kovacs (the vivaciously awesome Director of DØØM… yes, I just called A “vivaciously awesome”) and Scott Sigler (our Future Dark Øverlord… yes, THAT Scott Sigler… NY Times Best Selling Author and all around Freaking Awesome Dude)–have announced that I (yes, me… the “other” Scott, a.k.a. “Big Fish”) am the In-House Graphic Designer and a Preferred Provider for DØM.
Sweaty palms? Check.
Racing heart? Check.
Jumping up and down like a freaking’ crazy person. Uh… I admit it… check.
To listen to DØM’s announcement, head on over here: 46_FridayFix__GFL_T-Shirts_January_2012.mp3
This announcement rides on the coat-tails of DØM releasing 4 new Galactic Football League (GFL) tee-shirts. Oh, did I mention that I designed these 4 tees? Yes, another “Oh my God my head is swimming from excitement” moment. Check these puppies out… I can’t explain how much I dig these designs (I’m a little partial to the Krakens and the Pirates tees, but I totally l-o-v-e all of these).
Each of these are available over at DØM… why not head over and pick up one, or two, or all four of them today? To order them (oh, and the “Dig The Sig” tee that I designed the logo for in celebration of SiglerFest2011), head on over to http://scottsigler.com/product_categories/tee-shirts now!
I can’t fully express how much this means to me, to become part of the DØM family. You have no idea (and I mean this with all sincerity) how much A and Scott rock. Not only are they uber creative and progressive business people, they are just so amazing both professionally and personally. To be able to be involved in giving Scott’s fans a visual representation of the work they do is an honor above anything I can explain. And since I’m a fan of Scott’s as well, to be able to give him the best graphics I can come up with is a dream-come-true.
Plus, it satiates a fan-boy’s need to see those images come to life!
Add to that the fact that they continue to come up with ideas that help me explore what I can do and push me to the edge of the envelop and beyond, which is any designer’s dream job/situation. And what ideas they are. Wowzer. We’re only now chipping at the surface of what DØM is looking to do visually and as a brand/product: I’ve seen a couple glimpses of what they have in mind and all I can say is “Oh my, I can’t bloody wait.”
It’s going to be a fun and amazing ride. And that’s just the professional side.
Personally, both Scott and A mean a cubic ton to me. Whether they fully realize it or not (and knowing them I’m positive they do know), they helped me through a very difficult time in my life, giving me something to focus on during the single most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever had to go through. Through them, I was able to focus on something as I rode through that challenge; without being able to focus on their projects last year I’m positive it would have been so much more difficult than it already was.
In a nutshell, just let me wrap up by saying that I’m looking forward where we’re going at DØM and am so excited to be able to help bring their visuals to life.
It’ll be a crazy, fun ride… so close the damn door, put the pedal to the metal, and let’s get going.
Awww yeah… it’s OUR house!
