Here is a Free Breast Cancer “Hope” Ribbon badge file. In the later part of 2010, I had learned of an old friend that is fighting breast cancer. I wanted to not only show my support but also do it in a creative manner as well. So, I created this

Have you ever wanted to play the game of chess and didn’t have all the pieces? Well, I have and so I thought it would be a good idea to have some paper versions of these wonderful pieces. If for nothing else to teach someone what exactly they look like.

Christmas has come and gone for another year. This past year has been a great one at our household. Everything from graduation celebrations to the start of new careers has happened. I look forward to see what the New Year brings in 2011.
Over the holidays I have had the time to do some Google Searching. While looking up various programs, blogs and gadgets I have come across some amazing items. One is a software piece that I have recently downloaded to my iPhone. It has been on the market for some time and has come out with a new version for 2011. Sketchbook Pro 2011 is an amazing tool when you need to sketch out some ideas or if your trying to do some quick doodles. Personally, I find myself leaning more and more to a digital environment and work flow. The more that I can do this and increase my productivity the more justice I may be able to give my art/creativity.
Here is a creature that I created using Sketchbook Pro with my iPhone. It appears to be a simple little bird but in all respects it represents so much more. I drew this on my iPhone as I was thinking of the beloved Spring time.
Working with various brushes and symmetry features that Sketchbook Pro offers I found it to be easy to quickly prototype what was on my mind.
After creating this bird I needed to get it to my illustration software of choice, Adobe Illustrator. The files from Sketchbook Pro can be exported in an array of file formats. I usually like to work with PNG files and then auto-trace them. Often times I am not successful in the auto-trace feature and so I may decide to draw out each section. In this case I got lucky.
