Goodness, I can’t believe I am so nervous about this. I just submitted a design to the I ♥ Blogging contest; mind you, I haven’t been in a art/design contest for a years.

My comments: Blogging is a phenomenon that lets ordinary individuals spread their ideas throughout the world. You don’t have to be a politician or a celebrity to be heard. You don’t need a personal jet. The blogosphere tears down geographic boundaries and this revolution is illustrated in my “I ❤ Blogging” entry. Blogging flattens the globe and is quickly changing the way we give and receive information.

Wish me luck!

Action Coach

Rick Crain is an Action Coach who asked me to design a graphic for his presentation on team building for executives. His presentation revolves around the idea that executive success is based on the four A’s:

  • Awareness: Becoming aware of counterproductive habits
  • Adjustment: Changing those habits
  • Alignment: Optimizing your team to move towards an ultimate goal
  • Automation: Developing a committed team that can perform by itself
  • Even in our small encounters, he teaches me so much about business. I was honored to work on a project for Rick. Here are some pictures from the process:

    First off, warmest welcomes to site visitors from Momocon!

    Photobucket

    Had a great time at Momocon this year! That’s my fiance and me at the art table. We got to talk to so many people; it just filled me with energy! I didn’t get to make nearly as much as I did last year but I did make a lot of new connections. I can’t believe they hit 10,000 people! They’re either going to have to start charging or move to a new venue! I was impressed but I also felt bad for the staff. 😦

    So someone expressed a bit of interest in getting drawing lessons from me. If that goes well, maybe I can add that to my repertoire in the future …

    Aside from that, the highlight of the con was getting a picture with a Spiderman cosplayer and exclaiming, with a crazy grin across my face, “We’re gonna get married!

    Momocon Poster: WIP

    I’m designing a promo poster for Momocon and this is what I’ve got so far:

    momocon

    The theme this year is cheesy 50s sci-fi and when I looked it up, I found this quote interesting:

    “People, by the 50s, had lost their optimistic confidence in the ability of science to fulfill all the dreams of mankind; instead, you saw science about to fulfill all the nightmares of mankind. The prospect of nuclear war . . . was hours away.” – J.G. Ballard<

    So I ran with the idea and came up with this design. 🙂 Momocon is the 14th and 15th of March; look for me in the Artist’s Alley! I will be selling commissions and prints!
