For all you packaging designers out there, this might tickle your fancy. YouthDesigner.com showcases what they believe are some of the best looking beer cans. I will say that some of them are on point and designed well. The two photos I posted are some they chose. You can view their chosen beer cans here.

Lately I've seen Sticker Mule contests popping up on design blogs and that's not a bad thing at all, especially if you're a fan of stickers. If you have a design that you want printed you can head over to Sticker Mule and/or you can try to win a chance to have some stickers made free over at the contest at Gomediazine. I have stickers I want made, so I'm going to enter.
If you're wondering about Sticker Mule stickers, they are some good quality stickers. I've used them and I do like them and their customer service is on point. They're a company I stand behind and recommend.
Head over to Sticker Mule if you want to get your stickers made right now.

One of my goals this year is to create more fine art work, besides making some digital art. This was a fun and relaxing little illustration. I entitled this "Burning Desire." This is on a 5" x 7" canvas and I used black and gray markers. I don't know why, but it looks a lot better in person, than when I scanned this. Either way I like it and has me focused on making something better next time I pick up my markers to work on a new drawing.

Artist Paul Granese has a couple prints that you may like to frame and have in your home/office. They were originally sold at an art show, but he has a few left over. You can purchase one of these bad boys for $15. My favorite has definitely have to be his "Time & Tremors" print. They are screenprinted posters on heavyweight A3 matte finish paper. 11"x 15" You can purchase his prints at http://www.paulgranesesucks.bigcartel.com/

If you own an Android you may want to take a look at the apps that DesignrFix.com listed on their site. From Fontest which can help you with viewing fonts on mobile devices to Color Dictionary. There are some apps that I feel are worth checking out.
Check out the list here

This is might be a geek favorite, but either way I thought it was kind of cool. The line art was done by Jon Bolerjack, while the colors was done by JJ Kirby.

Happy New Year everyone! I thought it would be fun to kick off the new year on my blog with something done by me. I recorded myself working on my first Kid Robot Mini Bub munny. If you don't know they are vinyl figurines that you can customize yourself. I know I have plenty of improvement and I kind of felt what method works best after awhile. I started off with pencil and then followed it up with my markers. I think I would like to try using paint next time around and see if that's any easier. Also, recording wasn't as easy as I'd hope for either. I think if with this video I'm one step closer in being a hand model.
