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…)
Well, they’re about being dirty, okay?? Spring is coming here and everyting is sopping wet and muddy. Between that and the pottery, dirty is the word of the season. (more…)
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…)
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…)
In moving to Blacksburg, I’ve unfortunately left behind the musical, “Death Takes A Holiday,” that First Unitarian has been working on. They’ve given me some good creative freedom in creating imagery for the show, so I took advantage of that to create what I hope might be something iconic for their production.
I started off with some snapshot reference photos (more…)
I’ve been on the team for the local production of the musical “Death Takes A Holiday” at First Unitarian in Rochester, and I’ve been going pretty much all out on their publicity designs. Check out my process work for the first of their two requests, a cover photo for their Facebook page, and coming soon, a poster design (more…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
