Rose Day, Propose Day

I made this for Dan 🙂 For those of you who don’t know him, he is one of my CLOSEST friends. He has been for years. We first met on a forum (Neofreaks.org) and bonded over our mutual love for graphic design. We became even closer when we added each other on Skype – for YEARS we talked almost daily. He’s an amazing person and one of my best friends you guys (:

It’s just something really small and quick that I whipped up in honor of the first two days of Valentine Week – Rose Day and Propose Day. I poured my feelings and our inside jokes into this little wallpaper and the background roses that it features help me fulfill Day 1’s requirements as well (:

I’m trying to lift up my own spirits, so maybe things like this will help.

Vintage & Retro Effect Tutorials

Ending the drafts!

This is the second out of my drafts folder! Earlier last summer, I was spending a lot of my free time browsing around and reading up on different Photoshop, Illustrator, and Photography tutorials. I had this amazing idea of compiling these wonderful links in one place so one had only to visit my page to have the pathway to digital arts guru at their fingertips.

Yeah, that page obviously didn’t happen.

However, that doesn’t mean that the below links aren’t still extremely helpful! I may yet undertake the journey to compiling my own little graphic design resource links subset though, we’ll see.

This particular set of tutorials has a vintage/retro vibe to them!
