Mike Pantuso had the great idea to capture us dismantling our office on 30 ROCK using TIme Lapse photography.
See photos of this office here:
|For seven years I was the lead graphic designer on 30 ROCK.|
For most of seasons 1-4
I was the only graphic designer on 30 ROCK.
This is where I worked.
|This is the door to my office on 30 ROCK.|
I have a corner office.
The Teamsters are right next door.
I curse more.
|"You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like Heaven." - Jimi Hendrix|
|Next to Jimi: A short bio of the assassinated activist, Fred Hampton.|
|Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island, Me and Roseanne at her book signing,|
Tina on a toilet with a rubber chicken up her butt and beer wrapped around her head,
Beetlejuice from the Stern Show and Los Angeles Gangster Girls also
welcome you to My World.
|My co-workers could not decide if I was the|
Ghostface Killah, Kanye West or Michael Buble of Graphics.
They finally decided I am the Travis Bickle of Graphics.
|You are now inside my office, with the door closed. |
No one can hear you scream.
|That's me in that Crime Stoppers Poster we made for set.|
Layout by Mike Pantuso.
|Rum label by Mike Pantuso. Rum by Captain Morgan.|
|That I Got Mugged pamphlet|
is available to read on NBC.com
I wrote all the copy except for the title.

I am far more vicious than the New York Post
|Garter boxes say, "If I get married... ...four times."|
|Underneath my cry for help is a design for a board game that I designed,|
called No Problem. The goal of the game is to fix as many of the
world's problems as you can. Whoever fixes the most wins.
|This is my cry for help.|
|Jane has been brave enough to hang out with me in this|
crazy room several times over the years.
She is The BEST!

|Stop staring at me and get back to WORK! - Don Geiss|

|30 ROCK has been my religion, Tina and the writers, my Gods.|
|That's a real 1950's picture of a real bride showing some leg on her wedding day.|
|This is where my Partner in crime, Mike Pantuso sits. |
He gracefully accepted the walls he inherited when he came on board.
|That is a first draft photoshop of Tracy and the NASA Astronauts. |
I made that for the REAL NASA Astronauts!! They are pals of Jane Krakowski.
They took it into space with them, along with a signed script
from Robert Carlock for his episode Apollo, Apollo.
YES! My Graphic! My Print! Went into space with a Robert Carlock SCRIPT!
|Alec Baldwin has been documented saying one of his favorite|
things on the 30 ROCK set are the Jack Donaghy Photoshops.
I think the Pope one was done by someone at Broadway Video for the pilot.
|Oh baby! I'm gonna miss this job.|
|Made this Food Taint Hot Zone Map for one of Peter Dinklage's scenes|
on 30 ROCK and I made sure that all the info on the map
is real, based on actual statistics and data.
|My Genius cap says Dunce on the other side|
|My relationship with technology.|
|I am organized, I swear.|
|The handwritten page is a journal entry of a co-worker. |
It was a perfect expression of how 30 ROCK took over our lives.
It says, "After a long, broke and sweat- filled,
emotional summer I'm back at work at 30 ROCK."
That was the last thing she wrote for six months.
|"It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the|
sand. I beat people up." - Muhammad Ali
|My printer is in there somewhere.|
|That's a picture of Tina and I|

on my design of The Cheesy Blasters Mascot Liz Lemon
gave birth to in a dream.
A Recovery CD by Eminem is a crucial part of my decor.
|Thank you, NBC!|
|There is a note from 30 ROCK writer, Tami Sagher|
in the upper left corner that says,
"Hi Yvonne. Let me know if you need drawing tips."
The Bathroom Girls are my comic book.
|On the right: Drawings from my first sketchbook.|
I drew punkrockers on almost every page.
