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.

Over the past 2 years I have been diligently working on an idea I've had for a children's book. My story has come a long way from when I started and I have really enjoyed the entire process. As an artist, I am always looking for new ways to express my self and be creative.
Right now I am in the process of having my book read by some friends and family prior to publishing and it's going great so far. I am receiving tons of great feedback and can't wait to move forward to publishing! This is my first book and it's been a great experience so far. Once I am finished editing the story, I am going to self-publish my book through Amazon.com and possibly print a few through Lulu.com depending on the cost breakdown. I am also working on more concepts for a few children's books in the future. Between that and getting ready for my wedding, I have a full plate!
In other news- Go Red Sox!

I haven't been posting a lot lately and to be honest I haven't been creating a lot of art either. We have been in the middle of Autumn -one of my favorite seasons- and it's been difficult to sit still long enough to create anything; plus the weather has been amazing! That said, I have been busy taking photos as I truly enjoy viewing nature's art and because we only have a short window of time, I have been focusing on that. I have also been focusing on my wedding that is coming up soon!Once the wedding is over, I will be in a better place to create some new drawings and paintings. But for now, I am happy taking photos and living in the moment. It's good to do what you need to do and not live life by schedule. Don't get me wrong, it's good to have a plan, but I like the freedom to break from it and have some fun, don't you?To view more of the photos I've been taking lately go here.
