Not in the Cards

Sorry all. Still nothing fresh to post here.
I will be working on new stuff all day today, but I have a feeling it won't make it on here just yet. And in keeping with my resolution to update this blog more frequently here is something "recent" that I did.

This is something from this past December. It was intended to be the front of the company holiday card for GSN Digital. The project wasn't going to be mine initially, but due to work load I ended up being asked to do it. I wasn't given a lot of time to work on it, but I was still excited for the opportunity.

The empty space towards the bottom-center was left for the company logo.

Ultimately it never got used, as it was decided to go with an animated digital card using ready made creative instead. (womp womp)

The prompt that was given to me before I started is exactly what it ended up being: Snowmen sitting around playing cards. (Fun Fact: One of the reasons the image wasn't used was because it looked "too much like Snowmen sitting around playing cards." But I digress)

Even though it never got to see the light of day, I still enjoyed working on it. At the very least it lives on here.

Two for Two

Hey, would you look at that, I actually followed up with a post!

I said I'd try to put something current up as soon as I could, so I'm posting something done back in October (o_O). They're both from promotions that ran on Mind you, they're not the whole promo, just snippets.

This one is from a sweepstakes where if you entered you could win cash.

This is one is for a similar promotion, where if you pay cash to play your returns would be multiplied. 
I'm not responsible for the coin, or the background. Those were required elements.

I was hoping to get something a little more fresh and exciting up for this first post, but I've been a bit under the weather. Terrible way to start a blog. (What where you thinking!?)

Goal is to post something new by the end of this weekend. Wish me luck!

Greetings true believers!
Yes it is I, that guy who started a blog in 2009, never kept up with it, futzed around with the design a couple of times, wrote a couple of entries but never posted them, and ultimately just took the blog down.
(Oh, right! That guy. What does he want now?)

Well, truth is, I completely walked away from blogging. I don't think it was for me at the time. That and I'm really not very good at it. But since then I've noticed that I actually have followers on this space. In fact, my number of followers has doubled since I took the blog down. (Hmm...) So I think it's only polite that I post something on here once in a while. Plus, I'd be lying if I said that the idea of blogging again hasn't been an endless series of whimpers and pawing at the back door of my mind, so it's probably time to let it out so it can do its business on here. (Wait, what!?)

And of course, now is the perfect time to start up an art blog since I finally have a full-time design job, as opposed to before when I job, time. (...oops) Oh, well. It'll work itself out.

I don't know what I'll be posting on here first, but I'll try to get something current up soon. I realize the layout and design is a bit off, it'll take a little while before I get it to where I want it to be. But knowing me it's probably best to court this thing for a little while before I put a ring on it.

Until then, well, I don't know. You'll figure something out I'm sure.
Blog 2.0 has officially lifted off the ground. Will it soar above the clouds? Or will it crash and burn just as it did before? Stay tuned.
