Splotty with Friends

Splotty is a 2.5 inch tall paper toy assembled from a print on Canon Matte Photo Paper paper using scissors, exacto blade, glue stick, and transparent tape. Splotty is made from a template I created (pictured below) in Adobe Illustrator and printed out on a Canon Inkjet printer.

Flat template used to print on 8.5 x11 paper.
At a later date I will post the PDF of Splotty so you
can download, print and assemble your own Splotty's.

Sweet Shop Web Designs

Home page design.

A web design for a sweet shop England. Design is created with photos from the town where the shop resides. The web design was assembled in Photoshop, with use of Illustrator to create the flourishes, background pattern, iron assembly and signs used for navigation.


Child Page design.



I like putting in a lot of layered details, to add interest and complexity, and the illustion of depth. All with the intent of creating a warm destination that has a hand crafted feel.

I always do alternates, sometimes 2, 3 or 4 sets to explore different color pallets or organization, here is an example of a home page alternate.
 



Tank Top in New York

Created in late 2009 using 2 source images. One I snapped on a business trip to New York in June 2008 using an Olympus FE-230 7.1 Megapixel Digital camera as I walked from my hotel to the office (seen below in its orginal state to the right). The other was from a free stock sample from Stockvault, seen on the left. Composited in Adobe Photoshop.




Somewhere near Madison Square Garden.
