Making designs or patterns is a fun way for me to be creative and learn more tricks using the software I use daily. It is a nice way to blow off some steam so to speak. There is something very freeing about turning an idea I have in my head into something that can outside of myself. Creation. So when sites like Redbubble and Society 6 will do print on demand it makes sense to sell on these services.
There is something so very satisfying about seeing a design that I created mocked up on different items. I am used to seeing shirts, prints and I have been making custom clock faces. But Society6 has some other items I am not used to seeing like chairs, furniture, picnic rugs and yoga mats. Many gift ideas here.

Obviously inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. This is Chester Carlson (the guy who invented “electro photography” AKA the photocopy. I call it Photocopy of a Photocopy. I made this for the PrintEx11 poster competition.
Today I have been organising my portable music device. The main reason was to have new music and to make sure each song had a cover, as a visual person it is easier for me to store a visual database and and aural database. There were some songs/DJs/albums that just did not have a cover – or not one worth putting on a portable music device.
I designed some covers based off a quick google image search to find a picture that I liked and sometimes I grabbed a logo. Some were created from my own photography or digital illustration. Here is the few that I made.
These were all created in GiMP with each cover taking no more than 10 minutes to create.

Putting this old wallpaper on here made me open the folder full of these old but still lovely wallpapers. These are all mostly made with photographs that I have taken or fractals I generated and multiple layers in photoshop.
The caption is the name of the wallpaper and also the foundation of what made it.
Last year I was asked by a musician to do a photo shoot and to create a stylised vector drawing of him for the cover of his upcoming CD. Long story short: the three versions of the illustration never saw the light of day until now.
Since the design remains my intellectual property I can show you the stylised vector of the unnamed musician:
For what it is worth: I chose the bottom of the three versions for the cover and placed all the required text in the white space and it looked amazing.
