I guess that in every designer's life, there have been moments of rejection and struggles. I have had a couple of those and today is one of those days... but its what makes me a better designer. Over the years I have learned to deal with such situations-- work in the design industry, its about pleasing your clients. Well at least for graphic design. I recall that when i first started taking up art & graphic design, I mainly focused on finding what it is i feel expressing it through my work. I am still able to do this but channeled in a different way. In each piece of work i do, there's a little bit of me in it.I guess a big part of me misses being able to do art just for me and not for anyone else...

Well on the brighter side of the day, I got my fist sale on my stamps. I normally sell my tshirts pretty well. oh and Some of my other tees were also featured in certain categories of the zazzle site without any hookups :)

I had this idea that someday cake designers could start exemplifying their cake design digitally to help clients envision the cake for the special day- weddings, birthdays and cakes for every occasion.
I was given the opportunity to create posposals for colby caillat tshirt designs. I played around with the fonts to make them feel more colbiesque if there is such a word. I am still waiting to hear back from them but whether or not they like it, its a good addition to my portfolio pieces.

In addition, another project is the american idol finale tee that i also had heather jump on.. its mainly playing with the layout they have and the design elements that they have in their style guide... We are still waiting for approval but hopefully they'll end up liking something. that's all for now...

Celebrate Life Conference Flier

Something i created for the 2008 Conference. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out considering that a lot of text was involved in it and it just somehow came out naturally. It was a good exercise of what i used to do in layout and typography class.

Vagina Monologues T-Shirt Design

I haven't quite been able to write about what i have worked recently but here is a sample of something i worked on for a friend awhile back. They raised thousands of dollars selling these tees so rock on!
