Shop Update: Greeting Cards!

I had so much fun creating my 2013 calendar that I recently decided to create a batch of greeting cards with some of the designs. Check them out on my etsy shop!

Black and White Flattery

While making this postcard for a film series the other day, I was thinking about how often speakers I've worked with use a black and white photo for their press photo. It really does look sharp, especially if the highlights and contrasts are done well. I love these three photos: Paul Goodman looks straight at you with that pipe and wild hair! Bobby Fischer and Ray Kurzweil so immersed in their genius!

I think we should all have a portrait of ourselves in this style, just in case someone makes a documentary about us and then someone else else needs to do a publicity postcard.

Spray Paint + Glue Guns = Fridge Fun!

I've seen lots of fun ideas online for whimsical crafts to make with plastic animals (like those on this blog). While buying spray paint for some other projects recently, I decided to give it a try! From the first step of chopping the animals in half, all the way through glue-gunning craft magnets to their middles, I was chuckling the whole way. Wouldn't these make wonderful little gifts to spread cheer to all your friends?
