A Shortcake of Introspection

This poster was created for the musical act known as ‘Shortcake in Big Shoes’, a side-project headed by Edward Torres, a music consultant here at The North Side Creative, as well as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the band knows as The Rewrites. The side-project includes two members in addition to Edward, a drummer named Ivan Sanchez and a female vocalist named Susan Ruffino. Ivan Sanchez will most likely not be participating in next month’s performance, but I have no doubt that the performance will still prove to be an enjoyable experience. The side-project was created in order to collaborate with other musicians and to continue to engage in music performances while The Rewrites is currently split up geographically.

I will continue to provide information about The Rewrites and all other affiliated musical and artistic endeavors concerning the band members.

The North Side Creative’s Diver Logo with a little Midnight Marauders tossed into the mix.

The North Side Diver Logo

The iconic appearance of the ‘deep-sea diver’ is something that has always been of interest to me, albeit mostly from an aesthetic outlook. After having created the logo, I thought more about the iconography and how in a small way, the image of the diver is relevant to The North Side Creative in its present state. I have observed that the image of the deep-sea diver is often depicted in settings where the surroundings are usually dark and mysterious, such as caverns at the bottom of the ocean floor. It is in these settings that the diver ventures to respectively accomplish whatever it is that he must, and to return with his life amidst the dangers of the deep. The diver is usually by his lonesome, combating the forces of nature, and it is at this point where I will relate the diver to The North Side. While it is currently operated by one, I hope that it will be able to grow, to form a larger and much more creative ‘wolf-pack’ ,if you will. The North Side Creative is presently operated by a sole individual, myself. The diver is in a similar position when he is on his quest, and the tool he utilizes in the case of my logo, is a sledgehammer, where the tools I utilize are many. I use these tools to accomplish my goals and to complete all quests that may lay ahead. It is how I conquer by design.
