I've been creating instruction manuals for Mishkin's uncle's company. For the manuals, I got to create icons, which thrilled me. I'm always jealous of the graphic artists at work who get to draw and play the entire time they're at work. So finally, I've been able to play for pay. Here's an example of an icon that I created.
At the suggestion of a coworker, I've started putting together a little health newsletter. It's been fun. When I'm finished, I'll start posting the PDFs in my blog's links section so you can enjoy the newsletters, too. That is, if you care about being healthy.
I do some volunteer designing for the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition. Brother 2 and I worked on this ad this week (when it's printed, it will be about the size of a business card).
I recently upgraded to Adobe CS2, which means that my favorite programs now have new features. I've been playing with these features this weekend. I'll be helping a friend realize an artistic dream, which is exciting since her friends all told her her idea was impossible. Not only is it possible, but it will only take about five minutes to do what she needs to have done. I've also been working on a few t-shirt ideas, based off of this one great t-shirt that I love.
