Fun with Cake!!

It's always fun to decorate your own cake if what's offered to you at the bakery or store isn't what you're looking for. Just need a plain cake and whatever fruits, toppings, icings, etc. you need and go at it!

Illustrated ladybugs collaged

A few posts ago I did an illustration of some ladybugs. I thought about illustrating it digitally but then felt it'd be fun to collage it since I haven't collaged in some time. So, here it is.

I wish I had done the dashed line a little different or a little better than I did. OR, maybe I limited myself by the paper size I chose. Anyhow, the balance is off right now so if I decide to make anything out of this I'll have to fix it up a bit.

I started painting the design of giraffes I had created for some pillows. I'm not sure how different this one is going to turn out, but I'm kind of just doing it to try some different mediums other than digital. I've strayed from what I'm most passionate about -- collaging, painting, illustrating -- and its timed to get back to that!

Poster for Camp Meeting

Poster designed for Camp Meeting at my church, Faith Christian Church and International Outreach Center (long name, take breath! -- But anyway, i love it there!)

I recently began designing event posters for my church. Its a little different than what I'm used to, I guess because of the client and audience that I have to consider. Its a challenge, and sometimes a compromise because my style is so different (and sometimes odd)--BUT I like a challenge! and opportunities to try something new

Cooking show? i donnooooo

Don and I have been trying to come up with some sort of show we can put together simply for fun and to dilly-dabble in something new. We thought about doing a show about veggies for kids and, well, that fell through. But anyway, the other day on Skype he was cooking some hot dogs and acting like a TV chef and I thought that would be a perrrect show for us to try out. Neither of us can really cook very well (i.e. cooking hot dogs on your cooking show), but both agree that its fun and we need to learn. So why not learn how to cook, from him I can learn how to edit, work on some animating, (I can work on my acting skills), and have a good time entertaining....even if we're our own audience! So for now here's the logo but it could definitely change. We figured we should just do something to motivate and get us started on this thing. Not sure how far we'll take this but we shall see!
