Follow through and flattery.

Deep in the distant past I suggested I’d have a go at the Semi-Competitive competition, and with work and general procrastination it seemed I wasn’t going to get the time. And yet, I did find the time, at least to enter some designs for their fashion/t-shirt competition. I went with some ideas based on the current style for scrapbook, although I had various others, hopefully they’ll emerge as wallpapers on here at some point :)

In other news my web developer friend Rihards’ site which I designed and he created was featured on the web gallery Web Creme which was pretty cool, on his birthday no less which I think I’m meant to not mention. The design and CSS was even ripped off for an Opera community blog, how’s that for flattery :D

All quiet on the sketchy doodle front.

Well I was planning on doing an entry last week full of biro doodles, celebrating the 60th-ish anniversary of bored employees drawing the craziest things with the simplest of tools. But my pad went missing (yes I could have said my dog ate it, but I don’t have a dog and my cat is above such things).

Hopefully I’ll replenish my stocks with more intricate doodles shortly, and for the moment I’m resisting showing anyone the original sketch of the illustration on scrapbook itself as its really very unpretty. Only the quick little tree doodle is actually done in biro, the three spires image was done on my shiny new Wacom tablet :D The other is a pile of old illustrations done on tracing paper.
