Of Imperfections


Now I’m here copying a year old flyer. I actually have a copy of the flyer but the little bugger is a .gif, and photoshop won’t let me do squat with it! So here I am recreating the flyer from scratch. 

This is the flyer they want:

What they want...

What they want...

And here are the 3 that i originally came up with (i got the backgrounds from another source)

 

Flyer #1

Flyer #1

 

Flyer #2

Flyer #2

Flyer #3

Flyer #3

Really Now? I admit i could have done a little bit more to spice it up, but still…

Anyway, off i go

I’ve been told to create 2 8ft(h) by 4ft(w) window signs for my workplace.

The first design up came up with sat on my employers desk for about a week as he hummed and ahhed about it. Then he sent it back saying it doesn’t catch his eye and it looks overly organized….something that he would do.

 So, after much thinking, countless numbers of times rearranging pictures, switching out backgrounds, adding this, taking away that…I had 3 extra designs to show him. THREE! 

Just now, I lost all of it.

Hello!

Guess my new passion!…..

 

NOPE! (I don’t care what you said-lol) It’s graphic design.

Below you will find my second selfish creation. I call it “selfish” because I’m currently working as a graphic artist in training, so I’m only supposed to be doing signs for the store (my employer). Now, here it is, I am supposed to be designing a 8x4ft window cling BUT instead I’ve been designing a book cover for myself – thus being SELFISH – See! It links.

So yea, it’s titled: “Orchids Over My Grass” Lol, I love it!  

Program: CS2
Creation Time: 30 mins (or so)
Creation Date: May 1st,09
 

What do you think?

 

"Orchids Over My Grass"

Fav Song of the Moment: The Fear by Lily Allen

Cell Phone Ring Tone:  Now that You Got It – Gwen Stefani

Fav Music Vid of the Moment: The Fear by Lily Allen

Movie I’m Watching: The Godfather (Yea…)

Currently Reading: The Outlaw Demon Wails By Kim Harrison

Current Goal – Re-do all 7 BOSS aisle signs. (Well, to be honest I only need to switch out the pictures. But see, it’s still not that simple because each individual sign has to have it’s own unique pictures. About five pictures per sign. So yea, I’ve got about 3 more.)

Wow….it sure took me a long time to get that Blueberry Cheesecake ice cream.

I won’t even count the months – too much shame. 
There’s not much point, I guess, in posting up a review of The Killer’s song, but I do finally remember the name of that song with the funny colored guts – it’s L. E. S. Artistes by Santigold! LOVE IT! Currently the most played song on my IPOD and phone ring tone. 😀 Link!

(This gives me an idea for my next post – it’s an old and constantly used idea, but still.)

Now, there is another Music Vid I plan to evaluate (as soon as i remember the name, singer, or some lyrics).

Until then, I have a mini update! I’m learning the world of graphics! That’s it. lol, I’m going to go back to CS and this window cling concept that I have to come up with.

I shall be back soon (hopefully,lol) with a more productive entry.

Toodles!

May 7th???
Has it been that long?

Anywho, I’m back.

Been having alot of ups and downs, all my before mentioned tries at breaking into Hollywood failed 😦 Suckage, but I’ve still got it in me to try and try again.

I’m back in college, though I don’t think I’ll be sticking around for much longer…The College of the Bahamas is good at some stuff, however, film education is definitely not one of them. Sooo, I’m trying to get a job at one of the very few places that offer film careers here in The Bahamas.

More bad news – no internet or cable tv at home….for like weeks now. I’m going through Internet Withdrawal Syndrome….more suckage.

A flash of good news: I helped out in filming a commercial! It was awesome sauce! More about that later….

Ummm….what else, oh, yea. This screenwriters competition has come up. I have one script that is completed but it’s only two pages long and even though they have not but a limit on the word count, I still don’t feel as though they are looking to give out $10,000 to a 3 minute script (if that). So I have another script that isn’t close to half way done that I’m going to try my hardest to finish up and submit. Good Luck to me, ya?!

Anywho, that’s my update for now.

Catch ya laters

We all have greed issue’s and I plan to listen to it rather then ignore it. How can I be greedy for something that I already have? 😀

I loves my logic…

1. A Rottweiler Puppy

2. Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Tyler

3. A Jet Ski (complete with sexy male rider – woohoo! 😀 )

4. A better looking swimsuit (LMAO)

5. A pony – heh, I may be an *adult* but I haven’t lost my inner child! “I want a pony!”

…with geeks. I think they’re “cute”. Perhaps even slightly adorable.

I was sitting in traffic on my way back to work – one hand thrown carelessly over the front passenger chair and the other propped up behind my head. Up ahead there was a boy, of about 15 years of age – small, thin, brown with short curly, blackish looking hair. A small pair of glasses rested on his nose. He had some papers in his hand. He would look down at them, then back up towards the line of cars waiting for a green light. He raised his head a bit too much, out of habit obviously, and looked down through his glasses. He looked so out of place among the thugs that usually line the streets. He looked…innocent.

And that’s the thing I have with geeks – they’re really good at appearing innocent. And in a good number of cases – they are. They appear so unassuming, so trusting, and so curious. I guess that’s what makes them geeks, their curiosity that drives them to learn about so many things.

As I looked at that boy, I couldn’t help but think: “Oh yea, I use to be like that…when I was 9.”

I like geeks, (the hardcore ones I like from a distance).

Geeks present a different type of person – people who are able to look beyond the surface of the world….and isn’t that one of the most important things in life?
