Social Skills Program Logo

I was asked at work yesterday to come up with a quick design for a program we are working on. They already had the idea of a kid with his hands up and the School, Home, and Community. I ended up  drawing the little guy from scratch and really like the way the illustration came out.


Epcot Weekend!

We had a busy weekend and I didn't get any drawing in, so I thought I would share some photos from the weekend.

First we ended up in Old Town, Kissimmee. There was a classic car show going on and I came across this hood ornament on a Rat Rod. It was so awesome, it's made out of keys and silverware.

While down at Old Town we decided to go play Putt Putt Golf at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf. The boyfriend and I tied the first game and then on the second game he beat me by 1 stroke.

The sky was beautiful after the rain stopped, and the sun was going down.

On Sunday we met up with his brother and his family and went to Breakfast with Minnie and Donald. Then we went to Epcot for the day. I enjoyed seeing all the countries in one place.

I really enjoy taking pictures of the sun setting. This was while we were waiting for the fireworks to start. The bright spot in the top of the photo is Venus and then you can barely see the sliver of the Moon and Jupiter below that.
Monday we went to the Orlando Science Center. Had a blast playing with all the science experiments.

We finally drove home that night and just chilled. I was so tired and sore from all the standing and walking around.

Hope everybody had a wonderful weekend also, and I will try and get back to the drawing by next week. Look for a Graphics post on Thursday.

New Logo Design for Work

The company I work for decided to change up the structure of the business and with that needed a new logo. We tried to have outside sources, because we have been so busy, design it but they didn't seem to like any of them. I was very excited when they decided on one that I had designed. I was also able to put together the stationary and business cards.


My Sketchbook #10

For my birthday the boyfriend got me a Wacom Bamboo Create Drawing Tablet. I have been so busy that this is the first time I have been able to play with it. This is my first drawing on it, using Adobe Illustrator. I need to do some more practicing and get more comfortable with the pen tool, but I do like drawing with it. Any suggestions would be very helpful. I used Illustrator because that is what I am comfortable using. I downloaded Autodesk Sketchbook and Corel Painter, but not familiar with them yet.


My Sketchbook #9

This was my idea for Easter. I have a thing about thinking Bunnies are Evil. I think it has to do with being bitten by one when I was younger.

I really had fun coloring these past 2 pieces in.

My Sketchbook #8

I have seen a couple people do the angry cupcake. For my birthday my girlfriends and I went out for frozen yogurt. So it popped in my head that I should make an angry Frozen Yogurt. I tried really hard to avoid my birthday so this was pretty fitting.


Birthday Week and Update!

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to write a quick note so you don't think I am stopping my Weekly Sketchbook Project. Tuesday March 27th was my birthday. I had a nice birthday, the boyfriend and my brother took me out to a Mexican Restaurant for dinner and made me wear this silly sombrero.

Well on other news my Mom ended up back in the hospital on Thursday. She is doing fine now but gave us a scare. I don't really talk a whole lot about her condition because to me its very personal. But for an update, She is still not completely responsive. We had her starting to talk with us but she kept getting infections and has been in and out of the hospital for the past month and a half. Just found out on top of everything else (aneurysm bursting, brain hemorrhage, and a stroke) she now has lung disease. We are just trying to stay positive. She is the strongest person I know.

I have just been exhausted lately. I plan to start back up next week April 10th. Hope everybody is doing well.
