Black Friday was CRAZY! People go a little nutty on Black Friday.... My hope is that I will never have to work in retail on Black Friday ever again. Here's a jiggy doodle I made to describe the day.

My last day at Urban Outfitters was on Black Friday. I suppose after working there for over 8 years I had to go out with a BANG! The great part is that I got a new job! Not only is it a new job, but it is an amazing job as a UI Designer for PopCap Games. I will finally be designing full time! R.I.P. Urban Outfitters. I will miss you dearly.

I've decided to periodically go back to some of my school projects that I really enjoyed and post some of the images that didn't make it on my portfolio site, and a also give a little description about each project. This logo is one of them. I created this logo for a company called Tot By Toys. The store specialized in educational designer toys for kids. Here are my inspiration photo's (from research), and the final logo. As you can see, I pulled a little inspiration from each of these images, but I have to admit, my main sources of inspiration came from Dr. Seuss and Sanrio, two of the world's greatest artists and designers out there!

This weeks illustration for that weekly drawing thing was a lot of fun! The directions were to illustrate type that reads "things are looking up". I had so much fun with it that I made two different drawings and had a hard time deciding which one to submit!

I created this little tree friend for that weekly drawing thing. He's an animal topiary! I was thinking of drawing a picture of a tree about to eat a little boy, but I ran out of time and drew this guy instead. I feel like I should just call my blog that other weekly drawing thing since all I post are drawings for that blog...but none the less, I love my little blog and will continue to post, even if this is all I post each week.
