Color Theory

Below are some color studies I made with a sketch for a friend. for each set, the color of the letters CG are exactly the same, but because of their background, they look different. I forgot how much I love color theory :)

I am SO excited, I just got my boarding pass for the TEDxDetroit conference for tomorrow. Out of 350+ applicants, somehow I managed to get accepted! I know this is a local event, with our own local celebrities, but I am so excited to hear and meet the people around town that share the same mind set as me.

My list of presenters that I really, really want to meet:
• Dan Izzo, Training Leader at Bizdom U
• PJ Jacokes, Producer/Lead Instructor at Go Comedy!
• Terry Bean, Author, Speaker and Founder of Networked, Inc
• Terry Barclay, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inforum Michigan
• And of course all the people who organized this event!

I think by the end of it, I will want to meet EVERY presenter. I'm interested to see if I know any other attendees. If not, I guess I will have to make new friends, which is always good!

Business Card History

Here is my collection of all the business cards I have made in the past. Every single one (except for the rainbow one) has an element of chance in it. For the top set, I drew letter A's on a large sheet of paper with poster markers, then printed my info on the other side and cut down the cards. Each card was entirely unique from the next. I gave away a lot of my favorite ones :) but these are the ones I have left.

The next set is the same thing, but the A's were not drawn, these compositions were generated at random using flash.

The next rainbow set are the cards I use to promote my etsy store.

And finally, the last is my newest set!! I made these to give away at the TEDxDetroit event coming up in a couple weeks. These cards are all unique, my favorites are shown below. I cut these from an old paper sample book. yay recycling!
