Back to the Drawing Board

Well I’m back!

My unexplained absence can be explained by month-long break including a week’s vacation in the Caribbean. My wife and I booked a cruise in January. Two weeks before the cruise, I went into vacation mode and for two weeks after the cruise I was still in it. So, with this post, starts my efforts to get back into the swing of things.

Along with my creative, I am a (very) amatuer photographer. I packed my camera for my long-awaited trip and below are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

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 #3

Here is your Free Inspiration of the week. My company has been working on the yearly Amarillo Symphony program so it was hard to get music and notes out of my head. Hope you enjoy!

Creative Freedom Found in Birthday Invitations

Summer is a big time for Children’s Parties. I’ve been busy creating birthday Invitations for a number of them.

Invitations are probably one of my favorite things to design. I am always surprised at how much creative freedom I get when it comes to designing invitations. Almost anything goes. Below are just a taste of my most recent work.

The boy’s invitation is centered around the fact that he loves Goldfish Crackers. The girl’s invitation is as girly as you can get without going overboard. Both designs worked great and the customers loved them.

If you have a Birthday party or any party coming up I would love to design your invitation. Please check out my contact page to get in touch with me.

Summer’s Here

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s summer! Every year Data Flow helps put together the Parks & Recreation Guide and Summer in the City. Summer in the city is a kid’s guide to events and activities in the City of Amarillo. We went with a “Wish you were here” postcard theme for this year’s guide. Check out some illustrations I did for the guide.

If you see one, grab one! They are free and full of things that will keep you child busy the entire summer.
