I had to re-learn some stuff I’d forgotten about the Typepad blog publishing program, but it wasn’t too hard once I got the overall lay of the land. I have created 3 banners for Mr. Black’s book, My Custom Van, which goes on sale in bookstores everywhere July 15, 2008. The least cluttered, hopefully final version of the banner is what you see there now.
Whatever you do, visit Michael Ian Black’s blog and enjoy, if you dare. We all need a break from the crime stories, sometimes.
(To clarify — Michael said he was fine with me letting people know I was helping him out. Just to be sure I didn’t overstep, I asked him if he wanted me to keep any assistance on his blog confidential, and he said no. I’m pretty sure one reason he asked his readers for volunteers for this occasional help is the fact that the guy is on the road a lot, doing his stand-up routine. In July he’ll be on the road promoting his book. Only so many hours in the day.)
