Adhere to Me Sketch #4

In all of my sketches I have been trying to incorporate a dictionary page that includes a word that relates to the particular sketch. The dictionary I picked up for $1 only has 194 pages with big type, so my vocabulary is pretty limited... we'll see how long I can keep it up.

First Sketch Done!

Just completed my first sketch for the 2011 Sketchbook Project. It is always hard to start a new sketchbook... kinda intimidating, all those blank pages just waiting to be filled up...My theme is 'Adhere to Me' so what popped into my mind...a bee covered in pollen.

Smile! You’re on Google Maps

As I was strolling down the virtual streets of Denver Google Maps on a blustery Saturday afternoon, I stumbled upon two odd fellows...The first appeared to be demonstrating Neo-Nazism across 18th st. The second, well, he looked as if he had just been dropped off the hillbilly-mobile into the heart of the city. I especially like the fact that everyone's faces are blurred out, except for our little furry friend... they blurred out his hand instead.

Hi Ho Denver!

The 2010 HOW Design Conference is fast approaching... and I can hardly wait! AIGA contacted it's Denver members and asked for design submissions for a post card collection that will be given out to people at the conference.
