    Painting BFA major, but I also love ceramics, printmaking (linocuts, stamps, stencils, monoprint, etching) bookbinding, and occasionally illustration work.

    I enjoy playing board games. My favorites currently are Tokaido, Jambo (especially with the expansions), Bananagrams, Agricola, Bonanza, Machi Koro, Sleuth, Skulls, Manilla, Pandemic, and Puerto Rico. I'm still on the line about the card game Innovation. It can either be fun and awesome or hair-pullingly awful, depending largely on players and the strategy of the current game.

    I love the idea of a big game in a small package. Someday I will design a fun small game that is bigger than the sum of its parts. :-)

    I also enjoy reading-fantasy, sci-fi, and classics (especially adventures), and even fanfiction when I have time.
  1. Fantabulous. Lovely work. I'm going to try some halftones myself maybe . . . :D Great style!
  2. Super nice! Especially with spring on the way these are very appropriate. :-) Have fun!
  3. Specifically, when I have been sending an jpeg image through iMessage to my phone-- and also the same thing happened when I tried sending an export jpeg through hotmail-- the colors shifted. They became much more saturated and the shadow areas became a dark black color. I have never had this problem before. Additionally older images that I have made in AD export just fine. So I am very confused. Just to test that it's only happening to AD, I sent a jpeg to my phone that was exported from a program called ArtRage and nothing changed there. Any help would be much appreciated. First image file saves and transfers just fine as a jpeg-- "Simple Nativity Scene" Second image not so much. "Design4." I'm not sure what the difference in these two document files might be, but I suspect it has something to do with the document setup. Again, I'm exporting to JPEG at 1000 pxls (image still looks fine on the computer) but when I send it via instant message and hotmail the colors are fugitive. I have an iphone 4s, latest upgrade. simple nativity scene.afdesign design4.afdesign
  4. Very nice work, almost military? It could be a patch on a uniform maybe. Nice graphic design.
  5. Wow, that is super nice! I love the effects with the noise and gradations. This is surprisingly subtle for a vector design piece. I am always amazed at what one can do with this program. (I haven't even scratched the surface and I've had it for more than a year now!)
  6. These are really nice! That's a lot of work, but I bet they enhance the articles. :-)
  7. Very nice textures and striking image!
  8. So for my Grandmother's 95th birthday my family and I sent a package and I drew some simple flower doodles on the brown paper wrapping; apparently it was something she could see even with her bad eyesight. Mom (who is taking care of her) threw away the paper by accident and wanted me to draw some more images, so this is one of the designs I have made for Grandma to replace the wrapping paper. She'll get the original sharpie pen work, but I thought it would be worthwhile to try and design it in Affinity. Here's my finished illustration. This particular drawing might have too many fine details for her, but I have some other simpler drawings specifically with Grandma in mind that I'll be able to send to her later. Also I REALLY love the history tab where you can scroll back and see all the changes to the Affinity Document itself. Maybe I am easily impressed, but that is super cool.
  9. So cute! it looks like this fox has had a nice meal or several very nice meals in a row. Perhaps he's got an underground passage to Boggis, Bunce and Bean's farms?
  10. Wow, that is so cool! Very well done. :-) Beautiful colors and pattern.
  11. A few more recent images from sktchy . . . :-)
  12. Really love the dragon, it's very unique looking and has a strong design and some great coloring! The Japanese garden has a strong design too, but must confess I am a little off-put by the effects used on the trees and bushes to 3D them. I do believe the garden has very good potential, though! Good luck with AD and thanks for sharing!
  13. wow, very well done; this has some great lighting effects.
  14. These are awesome! :-D Very well done . . . Love these a lot!
