Frequent Cuddle Card – or – This is What Happens When You Date a Graphic Designer

July 24, 2011

This is my take on the ubiquitous frequent buyer card. I made this for my girlfriend and I to punch off months as we date. It’s silly, sickeningly cute, and fun.

I designed, printed, cut, folded, and assembled it myself. I cannibalized the little red wrappy parts from a manila envelope.

(She liked it ^_^;)

Bathroom Mini Renovation

June 27, 2011

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a before shot. Just imagine that all the stuff you now see neatly arranged on shelves and squares was all piled haphazardly on my tiny sink. I’m much happier now.

Velvet Trollface

No, it’s not a velvet Elvis, it’s actually much better. I wanted a decent quality backing for my troll face poster, but I didn’t want it to be rigid so I could roll it up when I move.

Door Trim Mural

May 5, 2011

As some of you know, The Newt was painted recently. Twice, in fact, but that’s another story. Anyway, when you get a car painted, it’s prohibitively expensive to paint the door jams. Because of this, the original color of my car is showing through. Instead of being frustrated that the original silver was shining through, I decided to look at it as a canvas for creative expression. Two 25 packs of sharpies later and I’m ready to roll, pics after the jump.
