About a month ago I got a request to create a banner. They needed a quick turnaround on the banner because the hockey tournament was the upcoming weekend. They wanted something basic just to get the name out there (text, and logos) on a White background.
I have been doing this long enough now to know that a basic vinyl banner with text and a couple of logos on a White background... does not look good. There is a purpose for it- The classic "WE ARE OPEN" signs you see are great for attracting the attention of people driving by your business.... However, for an event like this, you want the banner to stand out in a good way, not a negative, " ewww, look at this hideous design" sort of way.
I told them I can create something in a half hour that would blow them away.... and if they didn't like it, I could easily create a basic text on White background banner for them in a matter of minutes.
Here is banner that I created for them and they loved it!
The banner was such a big hit that one of the parents ended up purchasing a banner for his son to hang in his room.

Whew- 2014 is already here! Where did 2013 go?? It's been a great year and a busy one at that! I hope your 2013 was as fun filled as mine.
I know I haven't been posting much and I wanted to apologize for that. Life has been extremely busy and I have been hard pressed to find the time. To be honest, I haven't really even had time to create much new art either. But the ideas…. let me tell you, the ideas are still coming in from all corners of my mind. That's why I just purchased an idea book or my little book of ideas if you will.
Previous to this purchase I have been writing down my ideas in sketchbooks (when I was sketching) or on tiny pieces of paper - I will show you all the idea notes I have- the purchase of this book allows me to have all my ideas in one place. This is huge for me because I have hundreds of these notes all over the place and this book is harder to misplace.
I have however, found some time to and from work to take some photos. We have been fortunate to get some lovely snow in time for Christmas and holidays which always makes it look amazing! More photos can be viewed here.
Again, Happy New Year and I hope everyone's 2014 is a fun and prosperous one! Be safe and stay healthy.
