Spring Finals

We’re coming up on the end of the spring semester and things are kicking my behind. It’s a challenge, and that’s okay; this whole thing so far has helped provide a little more focus on my priorities. I have a feeling fall is going to be different (in a good way).

Between tutoring a young gentleman in the Intro to Computers class and juggling other assignments and projects, I’ve had some time to do editing on the next chapter of Awakening. Sadly, however, it’s not -quite- done. If I manage to knock out this week’s projects early, I should be able to give it a spitshine and get it up by Friday.

In the meantime, here’s some examples of the things I’ve worked on this spring.

First off, and the most recent: one of three graduation posters, printed on a 24” wide-format designjet printer. An instructor’s youngest son is about to be the first in the family to graduate high school. (The rest were home schooled.) I couldn’t find purple and white balloon clipart (school colors) so I had to draw them myself; same with the flying pig wearing a graduation cap. Google image search found no results for pigs flying with a graduation cap on. Some aviator hats, but no grad caps.

Additionally, she needed a sign to tell people where to find the reception.

You’ve seen the blue fox-thing already; you might have missed the smaller logo-sized version that I’m considering working into a new site layout.

This poster is one you’ve probably seen in other styles before; I recall seeing it on a tee-shirt. Figuring out how to replicate it was interesting, however it’s not well optimized and as a result has a much larger file size (PDF 5mb, original 250MB). I should create some other versions, like ‘peach’ and ‘apple’ and ‘chicken pot.’
