What's Been Up

Greetings and salutations!

So there's been a couple of things happening since February, mostly work related things, a few small projects here and there, the typical ins and outs of running a business.

I had a wonderful odd call from someone randomly asking how much I charge for a logo. After launching into my speech about cost, value, etc. I found out she is from the Ontario Office Works program. lol. That's two people I've directly contacted out of that office now :)

I'm also into consideration for working on a retainer. This is huge for me. It means that I set a price for a certain amount of work over a certain amount of time, and that's my fee. I can make a couple of month's pay at once with this, and it guarantees work. I'll let you know how this goes.

I've been working through some side projects for friends also, cards and shirt designs (check my previous posts). I'll make full posts about the bigger projects when they're finished.

On top of all I'm working on the wedding :) I'm designing the signage and the cards and we're organizing the fun and games. Another post of wedding stuff will follow, as well as invitations and such :)

Thanks for reading!

Contests... For Science!

Good morning all.

I promise to create a legitimate post by the end of the day, but for now the wonderful Lara has pointed me in the direction of this contest. Looks pretty awesome :)

Who knew that being a designer and a nerd would eventually pay off, eh?  I've already posted some of my Portal related work here and here, but this gives me a chance to collect up some of the things I've done in the past :P

As always, I own the designs and the art, but I don't own any of the characters, their images, GlaDOS, the companion cube, and I don't work for Valve.... yet ;)

A Valentine's Day card I made waaaaay back...

 A poster I made for Carla when she was gone to Japan for a year...

A t-shirt I deisgned for my sister who wore it at a con last weekend.
