A few text mockups?

So I really don't even know where to begin here. Just throwing some ideas together...I tried wrapping it around the guy but that looked really really strange. I wanted to pop the text out like alex did with light squares and that way I wouldn't have to go around the vines...but I dunno about these shapes quite yet...any suggestions?

Ok...I'm ok with the text boxes, but I feel that page 2 and 3 are a little choppy. (I'm talking about the bottom spread, btw) They should be more organic. On the 3rd page you could extend the text box down to follow the contour of the log. It would look as if it were behind it. I can show you how to do this. You could do the same thing on page 2 and have it extend down to the grass, BUT cut out around the guy. The text in page 2 and 3 gets a little too close to the border of the text boxes. Give it a little breathing room. As far as the top spread goes I'd consider giving page 2 TWO columns instead of one big one. And make sure they're the same width as the 1 column on page 3. I don't mind the column on page 3 covering part of the log. It wouldn't even be that bad if there were a second column that covered the bird guys. So...I should probs s show you some stuff since you were sick last week. I'm about to leave MCA in a bit, but I could meet with you sometime Tuesday. It shouldn't take long. We can get you set up and you can edit your text later. Just let me know.

Ok yeah teaching me some of this might help. Sorry I missed last class it was just one of those nights/days and I just bleh. But yeah, I posted on FB I'll be free from lunch till 4:20 tomorrow so hopefully it can be finished then so I can print it tomorrow night. I don't think I'm very good at laying out text graphically...I'm no graphic designer I just draw the pretty pictures!
