This is a place to showcase personal projects, random inspirations and my current struggle with cooking dinners. Throw in some random facts and things I love and you got... The Big Green Ball. Welcome.
Remember that logo I did for Raegan’s Creations?! If you don’t remember (those two or so posts a go) she is a wonderful lady based out of Regina, Saskatchewan that specialized in hand-crafted Polymer-Clay figures. Well, she was kind enough to make one of crazy unique keepsakes for me and my hubs. We just received it last weekend and I are very excited to check it out. They are about 6-7” tall and definitely are one of a kind! We are very excited to have a momento of a special day and we shall display it proudly. You should totally check out her Etsy store!
So… lately I have been really into the idea of posting a bunch of work on Society 6. Fun stuff, experiments - things like that. I think it would be a really good opportunity to see how I develop and grow. Something I realize however, is I have A LOT of work to do if I want to make a dent in the Society 6 universe. I am merely a spec with two partial pieces up and considering, I spend most of my time fearing design work than actually doing it - I am hoping that this will be a good personal challenge to get some pieces up there.
Hey remember that time last summer where I was going to help a friend get a cookbook started and made this poster (a couple posts ago). Well… it is finally happening! My friend requested a couple info changes but instead of doing said changes… I decided I needed to re-visit the whole poster. I have to say this last year I found it a little difficult to layout the poster - I chalk this up to being a design novice - but this time it went considerable quicker. Obviously, this is because it was done but I also like to think that I am slowly (must dedicate more time to design - my new mantra!) getting more efficient and just plain better.
Which do you prefer? Do you like or dislike the changes?
Hey dudes! It has been a long time since I stopped by my ye ol’ bloggeroo but I though I would finally touch base on somethings I have been working on.
I recently had the opportunity to work on a logo for a cousin of one of my really good friends for her business she has recently started. It was a really cool experience, which definitely taught me a few things!
When I begun, I found a little bit of a challenge making sketches since the logo need to be upbeat, whimsical, fun and a little bit silly. The client created these unique, one-of-a-kind figurines and the logo had to really represent that.
Raegan picked out a sketch right away which allowed us to continue the process pretty quickly. The logo ended up mostly the same as the original sketch. At first, we played with some flourishes and details and then went to some color options before settling on the final. What we ended up with was playful lettering on in front of mounds of color which representS the clay Raegan uses to create her unique figures.
This is a poster I designed to help get recipes for a cookbook my friend and I are creating for a local community farm collective. Our idea is to get everyone from the community to participate so we have a wide range of recipes showing off our diverse population and their heritage.
This wonderful piece was contributed by super talent and ruggedly handsome Robot Soda (I may be a bit biased because he is my +1) for a show called ‘The End of Time’. If you are interested in more of his work you should check out his Flickr as he seems to update that more frequently.
Alright, I know I haven’t been updating as frequently as I promised - but I assure you there is a good reason. For now, I want to share these wonderful these awesome pieces done by the German artist, EVOL. These particular pieces are done on cardboard where he paints wonderful urban environments and amazing cityscapes. Please enjoy.
