Okay, I totally screwed up last night as I was heading to bed. I forgot to add any additional work to the 7-Star Challenge. Luckily, the 7-Star Gods (turns out there are only 2) deemed it fit for me to submit this work late. I am ever humble in their presence. They are Gods among men.
I chose to do a mockup for the 7Star Challenge web page. Comments are always appreciated, and critiques are always welcome. There are some small fixes that I am noticing now, but I think this would make for a pretty simple easy to follow site.
My buddy, Casual Blasphemy, decided it would be fun to start a little game. Essentially, create whatever visual concept you have (web feature, illustration, photo, etc.), and submit a completed draft of your work once a week. He called it the 7-Star Challenge. A motivational tool to keep us doing what we enjoy doing – making a bunch of pretty things with lots of bells and whistles.
It wasn’t long before I caught his little inspiration bug, and started to participate. I encourage everyone to create their own 7-Star Challenge, as it really is an excellent motivational tool. I say this being only one week into the challenge. We’ll see what I say 3 weeks from now (“7-Star what?”).
We have 1 week to submit a piece of creative work every Sunday from now until November. Since my portfolio tends to run on the light side, I figured this would be good practice and it encourages me to try new projects that I don’t normally do.
Here is my first submission. A business card concept. I am pretty happy with it. Now on to the next project, a new site.
Well, it’s that time of year again. Fall Enrollment. I also need to lock down what I am going to do for my thesis. The problem is that I should present my thesis for Mid-Point review at the start of next semester.I am going to have to come up with something quick. The problem is that I have been pretty brain dead when it comes to anything, but work and most recent assignments.
I am taking the summer off though. Trying to finish one degree while pursuing another really wiped me out mentally, and in a lot of ways emotionally. Continue reading “Time to start enrollment” »
My pirate name is:
Mad Tom Bonney
Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate’s life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!
