Welcome

September 05, 2011

For a while now, I’ve been looking for an avenue to sort of showcase some of my work.

I decided on a blog because I wasn’t really down with a typical “portfolio” site, and I wanted something a bit more robust than Facebook.

This is still very much a work-in-progress, and I have plans to start going through some of my old work and projects to post- more than a decade in the graphic design/flash dev world makes for a lot of crap to filter though…

A new business card design for a friend of mine at stay square

The front:

Stay Square ... Why risk it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The back:

Stay Square ... Why risk it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He opted to use just a QR code, in lieu of printing his name and contact details.

He also found out yesterday that his debut app, Robert Kelly Live, was approved and accepted by Apple for the App Store- so I thought I’d make him a new ‘card’:

Stay Square ... Coming up Aces!    Stay Square ... Coming up Aces!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, be sure to check out Robert Kelly Live

A life lived in fear is a life half lived

This is a print I made for a friend of mine at work, again done in that retro, distressed style that I’ve grown fond of.

Explore SCUBA

Delve the ocean depths...

The first of my SCUBA prints… I was inspired by some vintage advertising and thought I’d try my hand at it…

Fly-Fishing

All men are equal before fish

After the Lionfish poster, I thought I’d look at some other interesting textures and try my hand at a rainbow trout and fly-fishing

Beware the Lionfish!

Beware the Lionfish!

I thought I’d try something new and try for a design that grew out of my love for old, over-the-top movie posters.

Every Friday

Clear it out!

Apparently, every Friday our break-room fridge is to be cleared out … They made it sound like it was a big event- so I thought I’d promote it as such :)

A little courtesy goes a long way…

A little courtesy...

Always good advice…. but, did we really need to be told??

Power down you computer. Every. Night.

Turn it off!

But… but… what happens if I’m rendering- or uploading files?  What’s that you say?  Don’t worry about it … just waste a whole lot of time during the workday to do those renders?

Roger-that.
