New Theme

I haven’t posted at all this week, and probably won’t get to until this weekend. I’m busy with side work going on… it’s a good thing! Anyway, I changed my theme to reflect the season. Hope you all enjoy… Cheers!


I Design Stuff?

8 11 2007


just inspired by my post about Bittbox, I wanted to share a recent piece I’ve been working on.

this is a logo i designed for my churches young adults group, reThink. i tried creat a hip font while keeping it clean. i illustrated a upside-down box to tie into “out-of-the-box” thinking. yes i said it, i’m really sorry… i hate buzz words. Enjoy!

just wanted to give some ups to a design website that give away freebie, offers helpful tutorials, and has some sweet design on it! the guy who runs this design blog just announced that Bittbox has become so popular that he has quit his job to do it full time! sweet, livin’ the dream! total freelance can be an awesome thing, but also scary as a place where fire is all the time and the poke you with pitch forks! so go give this guy props for running a kick butt design blog and taking the leap of faith. here is some of the work he has put up on the site, it make a sweet desktop! the detail is killer…

Ween 2007

so happy halloween everyone… or those of you who celebrate dressing up in costumes and getting candy! yes, that’s what it is folks, lets face it we aren’t worshiping the devil on this night… it’s way too cold for that!

anyway, onto the pictures!

1) this first one is my office group costume, we enter the company wide contest. we ended up being the only group… so we won by default, but i think we would have won reguardless. we went as Snow White and the 7 dwarfs… and prince charming, the queen, the witch, and of course the mirror on the wall(for the guy who didn’t want to really participate).

Group ween

2) i just thought this was funny… the cow that didn’t make it as Chick-Fil-A’s spokes model.

Oleg Ween

3) and finally… i had to through this in here for myself and Jimmy. Snow White’s actual prince charming went as a iphone!

happy ween everyone!

anberlin is in town

anberlin isn’t in town… but they will be next month! i basically wanted to post something and didn’t feel like making a new banner for the post, like i usually do! call me lazy but i’m trying to work on a logo that i have come up with nothing of value so far, so i want to get back to that…

the reason I used the anberlin banner is because i wanted to post something i read on the lead singers blog, The Modesty Writers Guild. there is a lot of good stuff on his blog, as i mentioned in a previous post. so if you are in a mood to think and really search your heart after reading his posts, head on over there!

i read this post earlier, and it really caught my attention. these emotions and feelings are normal associated with the negative. but this benediction puts them into a new perspective! these are things we all should be praying:

A Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart

May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and
To turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.


Here is the direct link to his post: A Franciscan Benediction

Calling all designers…

Hydro 74

Back in action! A lot of stuff going on in my life recently… good stuff! I’ll write about that later, not tonight.

Alright, so my homeboy from the sunshine state turned me onto this design firm, Hydro 74. They’ve done things for most of the major surf and snowboard companies. So, if you have a dominate right brain or you just think you do, check out their dope website —> Hydro 74! I promise you’ll like it, if you have any taste…
Also, as an added bonus for the designers out there… I have posted a link to there blog in my ‘blog roll’. Every now and then they’ll post some vector art that they haven’t used or that they just don’t want anymore. For FREE! Cool? OK, go check it out…
