T-Shirt Design Experiment

For fun, I've been messing around with some different T-shirt designs for youth ministry. Not sure if they will go any further than this, but I'm having fun. I think this one is missing something... texture maybe? I really have to get my hands on a tablet. Done in Illustrator.

PIP Poster

Had to put together another poster for youth ministry. Done in Adobe Illustrator. By the way, since I've been doing more computer stuff lately, my desire for a tablet has severely increased. There have been so many cases that I think to myself, This would be so much easier with a tablet! We'll see...

I've also been bugging Adam about getting a cat. That's not happening anytime soon. So maybe when I get a tablet I'll just draw cats in Photoshop and Illustrator.

Half Bad Day

I only say half bad because the day wasn't completely awful. I started this after a series of events that just sucked. Kind of just wanted to doodle how I was feeling, and then decided to do an Illustrator version of the doodle so I could put some of that negative energy to good use. I was playing around with the various strokes for the outline, and ended up with this instead of the standard, single thickness outline. This one is more fun and more doodle-like, I think.

Another Batch of Bagels

Today's bagel endeavors did not go as well as I had hoped. Instead of doing four bagels, like the first time, I braved a batch of twelve in hopes that I could share them with the ladies at bible study tomorrow. I even tried a couple cinnamon raisin, sesame, and poppy seed bagels. Well, I'm pretty sure I need a bigger kitchen before I do that many again. When I got to the baking part, there just wasn't enough room in the oven for two trays to fit on one rack. So, I figured I could just put them on different racks and that they'd be okay as long as I switched them after I flipped the bagels. Apparently, that was a bad idea. The bagels on the bottom rack got quite toasted. I still flipped them and switched racks, but I cut down the time a little for the second half of baking. So yeah, they seem to be a little crispier than desired, but we'll see. Maybe they still came out okay... I'll at least bring in the not-so-toasted ones tomorrow. Adam and I can feast on the rest. :)

Certification Tuesday!

Started a new painting today. I'd had this drawn up a while ago and was glad to finally get some paint down. Didn't have a whole lot of time to advance on it, but that's because I was busy studying for my CPR class. Which I got certified for tonight! Certified in CPR (Adult, child, infant), First Aid, and AED. Sweet!
