The Din of Shock

There probably is nothing to say that hasn't been said. So I will leave you with my all time favorite song by the one, the only (understatement), Michael Jackson:

In conclusion (to everyone else's in the universe's thoughts): Crazy, yes - so we'll choose to ignore it today and talk about awesome pop music from the 80's. Rest in peace.

WTF with this picture, right?

"I did this a couple of months ago, but my music collection changes more often than my hair color because I’m constantly dragging and dropping things between my Macbook and my external hard drive, so I thought I’d do it again."

Also, what better way to procrastinate than by plundering my iTunes library?"

Blog Updates... Again

Hi Everyone!

I decided that I wanted my blog to more closely reflect my upcoming website, so I switched a few colors around. It also had an additional positive in that it's a little more legible around here. Which is always a plus.

Here's a cover I designed for the Liberator Magazine. I'm liking this whole cutout side illustration thing I have going. All the patterns (Her dress and the background) were created by yours truly. Textures include mahogany wood, scanned rice paper and linen.

True Blood
Premiere Party

Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 12:15 PM

So, I love me some True Blood. I've read all 9 books, and I will preorder the 10th as SOON as it becomes available. I'm having a vampire themed premiere party complete with vampire cupcakes and blood martinis. Yeah, I'm crafty like that. Anyway, heres an invitation I designed on the quick for it. The logo is unavailable elsewhere so I just traced it from a screenshot (obsessed, I know). Here's a link to the article about the font. Good work, Camm Rowland.

Here is the first draft of a little something I'm doing for my 9-5, an educational software company. The aim was to have a school subject (this one being astronomy) leap off the screen, and hopefully if the head honcho likes it enough, it'll be featured as a full marketing campaign.

I looked at some tutorials on how to get an aurora borealis look in photoshop at design sites Abduzeedo and looking at the art of James White, Justin Maller and God himself, but it took me a hell of a long time to get the fairly realistic look that I wanted. All and all, I think this was a pretty good go at it. I think I have a little refining to do... I'll keep you (all three of you) updated!

It all matches!

So my blog now fits thematically with my website, and my twitter. Excellence in motion. Now on to business card designs. And actually finishing my website and getting collateral together and taking my bio picture and...
