More projects!

Finally got around to posting the last few projects I’ve been working on!

Took me long enough… I know. 😉

Project 3 – CD Jacket Design:

With this project, I ended up creating my own imaginary artist. I started with an image I had taken over the summer, added a texture to it, and as it started to take on a fresco sort of look to it, decided to make it an Italian CD… lol. The image of the guitarist is the wonderful Brigitte Dale, a  writer and video blogger who graciously let me use her image in this project.

Brigitte is currently in the finals to become the next Sam-e Good Mood Blogger, so help her win this awesome gig by voting for her here: http://www.sam-e.com/job/profile/213

Project 4 – Menu Design:

For this project, we had to use style sheets. I decided to go with a coffee shop theme. Though the shop doesn’t actually exist, there are other eateries in the downtown Port Jefferson area that have the double name, (Salsa  Salsa, Pasta Pasta) that gave me the idea for the name of my shop.

Project 5 – Magazine Cover Redesign:

Here, we needed to change fonts and images, and consider the basic magazine layout.

I decided to redesign Shutterbug Magazine. I wanted to change the focus of this magazine from tech and gear, to a more creative audience.

Decided to decorate my balcony, with some of those big cafe lights.

Been a pretty busy weekend for me, had a friend’s baby shower in Connecticut, my cat got some wonky foot infection, and my mother was over for most of the weekend.

It was nice to sit out on the balcony Monday night have some coffee, and finally relax. One day, I’ll actually be able to relax on a day off work.

Crazy, I know.

coffee at the pita house, and my camera isn’t broken!

I stopped by CVS today, and developed another roll of film. Mostly just silly shots, but I wanted to make sure that the problem I had yesterday wasn’t a lens or camera issue.

I am happy to report, that all 24 exposures came out free and clear of any sort of wonkiness. Is that even a word? I don’t know, but it is now. So, it seems I either got a crappy roll of film (which is most likely the case) or the kids over at Wal-mart had some developing issues.

All I can say is THANK GOD!!! I was afraid that the lens I bought through Ebay was damaged. And that would truly stink because, I gave it a physical once over, but never shot anything with it. I really should have checked it as soon as I got it, but work was so busy that I just didn’t get a chance to use it until now.

*Does a happy dance*

Here’s a shot of my cup o’java from the Pita House last night…
