New Work, "Schwinn Phantom"

Just finished this artwork and added it in my shop. I have been wanting to do an artwork using Schwinn bicycle image for a while now but wasn't sure what kind. After searching for the right bike, I decided on this 50's classic, Phantom and I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out. You can purchase or just check it out in my Etsy shop.

Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts

Photoshop Keyboard Shortcuts, a PDF-file with a handy overview of most useful keyboard shortcuts available in Adobe Photoshop. The cheat sheet was created by Kenneth Setzer from Smashing Magazine and released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. I thinks this is so great! You can actually download the file and keep it for your use. When I saw this on their website, I printed it out and placed it right on my desk where I can see and use it. . .probably will save me some time and for you too.

Paper Chicken Animation by Joel Henriques

I first learned of Joel Henriques through my wife. He is a stay home dad/artist who seem to be having a lot of fun making little side projects, usually a toy or craft for his kids then posting them on his blog. His projects include wooden toys, building doll houses, sewing stuffed fabric toys, buliding a backyard playhouse, even embroidered t-shirts. I really enjoy browsing through his posts and seeing what he is up to. This clip is just one of many little fun things he has created.

Interesting Discovery

Local company was relocating recently and happened to get rid of a lot of their old office furnitures. I happened to pick up a few chairs when I helped them move. The chairs I had picked up were sitting in my covered patio in the back yard for few months until I discovered, to my surprise, that they were actually Eames chairs made by Herman Miller. For those who like Eames chairs, these office chairs are not the kind that are usually sought after but I was still very pleased to find them in my own backyard. I am not sure what I am going to do with them and don't have any clue as to if they are worth anything. . . In any case, once I found out about them, I brought them into the house and cleaned them up. I think I will let them sit around the house for a while and decide what I should do next.

Buyer's Suggestion

Just recently, I received an e-mail from my previous etsy shop customer suggesting that I should do a portrait of poet/writer, Walt Whitman as part of my portrait series I've been working on. Since it has been a while since I created anything for my shop, the suggestion made me feel a little restless. So last night, I got in front of my computer and worked through the night and finished this portrait. You can check it out in my shop.
