Stickers for the UUA

I signed up this spring for a Unitarian Universalist media group on Facebook, for making assets to share our “good word.” Being an actual designer, the couple of samples I shared apparently went over very well, and I was hired by the curator of the UUA WorshipWeb to make a set of outreach materials for General Assembly. This is a huge deal for me! I get pretty into being UU, and having my work seen by (more…)

Floyd Artisan Walk

I joined up with my coworker Jenny, developer extraordinaire and her husband Sparky to catch a few hours of the artisan open houses in Floyd County. Floyd is known around here for its hippie artisan flavor, with its old-fashioned Country Store and its large selection of potters, painters, photographers, and crafters of all sorts. (more…)

Impressionist Skies

I’ve found a real interest in acrylics since I got inspired at this past year’s Park Ave fest in Rochester. Since I found out about mediums and mixers for professional acrylics, I’ve been doodling around with them occasionally. Lately I’ve been trying to do more, get better in a slightly more concerted fashion, trying to deal with the transition here. (more…)

I started off with some snapshot reference photos (more…)

Fantasy Places

Sometimes I like drawing maps of made-up places.

Eoh was a world my college RPG group created for the very customizing system Burning Wheel. Unfortunately I wasn’t present for the “world burning” session where they created the original map, but they left me a blank spot on the map and brought me their drawing to work from. (more…)

Go Padda!

I’ve spent most of the year at work making iOS games/apps – and after almost a year of work, Go Padda has been released! Go Padda is a physics slider game in which you race down hills to collect flies and gain speed to fly over the landscape. Touching the screen hunkers Padda down to his leaf so he’s more aerodynamic for the downhills – but slows his climb on the uphills, so (more…)

Tiled Patterns

I’ve lately discovered how much fun it is to doodle some scribbly designs and plop them in a blank Photoshop canvas, shuffle the pieces around, and make a little pattern. I did most of them in grayscale so you can just use Screen/Multiply on them. Here’s some tiled patterns I made for free download. (more…)
