Stage One Clinger

Thought of this yesterday, decided to illustrate it today. Enjoy.

Guess What I Got?

I got nothing.

It happens every now and again. You feel it starting to take hold. You try to resist but once it sets in, it leaves you with nothing.

I started this blog not only to inspire others but to keep me creatively sharp. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted and that can only mean one thing. I am suffering from creative block. Apparently there is no known cure. It’s one of those “ride-it-out” things.

ImageThis graphic illustrates how I deal with creative block. I start out with nothing and then I end up counting the days until it subsides or I am finally inspired again.

I haven’t posted a Free Inspiration in almost 3 months. Honestly, I haven’t been inspired by the free photos that Shutterstock has been giving away. It’s not their fault.

A trickle of creativity hit me last week with this free photo.

I felt it was unworthy of its own post, but it made me laugh.

Free Inspiration #7

I decided to flex my photshop muscle with this week’s free image of the week. I couldn’t get over the firey red hair of the model.

I just just made it more dramatic by replacing her hair with actual fire. Enjoy!

Free Inspiration #6

This week’s free image from shutterstock is an alphabet of ransom letters. Here’s the only good ransom I can think of. Enjoy.

Amigos 3rd Annual Car Show T-shirt

I got the chance to design a shirt for the 3rd annual Amigo’s Car Show. A quick google¬†search¬†will show several shirts featuring flames, metallic letters and multi-colored cars. Thats not exactly my style and I tried to get away from that.

The challenge what to design the shirt using only one color. So I went retro and tried to rise above all of the auto show design chaos.

Free Inspiration #5

The free vector on shutterstock featured several pairs of glasses. Some of them are instantly recognizable from film and television. Can you guess who?

Free Inspiration #4

Introducing Face Magazine. Just kidding just a weekly dose of free inspiration. The free photo from shutterstock this week is a beautiful woman. When I saw that I immediately thought she belonged on a magazine cover.
