If you missed the last Kernspiracy, you missed out on seeing Max Grundy's illustration work in person, which was very cool. The first Kernspiracy of '06 is next week:

Kernspiracy is a community-building peer support project for (mostly L.A.-based) designers and creative professionals. Los Angeles is a tough place to be a designer, and it's often easy to feel like you're out there all on your own. Hella demoralizing. Kernspiracy is intended to address this issue by creating a forum for people to ask for advice, feedback and support from their creative peers.
Kernspiracy hosts monthly get togethers where designers and other creatives can come out to meet one another as well as trade ideas and critiques. If you're a designer, please come and bring a question, a design you'd like some feedback on or just a business card. If you know a designer, please invite them to do the same. At the very least, we can all have drinks together and complain about Quark.
In addition, Kernspiracy manages a corresponding e-mail discussion list to allow folks to interact between throwdowns, and to facilitate faster response times for more pressing concerns. The list info page can be found at http://tokyofarm.com/kernspiracy. You can also subscribe by sending an e-mail to kernspiracy-request (at) tokyofarm (dot) com with "subscribe" (no quotes) in the subject or body.
