My family lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. While I only lived there for approximately 7 years of my life, I still consider it home. People from the UP are called Yoopers and anyone below the bride (in the lower peninsula) are called Trolls.
What is the UP famous for you ask? Well, trees, snow, nosiums, and pasties.

Monday, monday . . . The Mamas and the Papas

Well it was back to work today. Next week I have a week and a half of vacation time that I will be taking. Can't wait.

Took this picture on a trip to St. Augustine. Took the picture into photoshop, adjusted the color somewhat, and added the text. Love that town. So much history. Great buidlings, stairs, windows, alleys.

Sunday Boredom

Its Sunday. I am bored but can't seem to drag myself away from the computer. You would think after working all week long that I could find something better to do.

I took a picture of one of my sister's calves and brought it into Illustrator, traced it, cleaned it up and adjusted some colors and this is the result. It actually got published in Create Magazine....

Week 2

Well this is week 2 and I have not added much to this blog. Since the demise of Create Magazine, I have been doing a lot of research online to see if I can find a site that is as compatible as that one for promoting Dreamspeaker Graphics.

As everyone probably knows this can be a tiresome and time consuming project. I haven't found anything that really replaces what I experienced there. It has left a big whole in my life as far as easily communicating with other professionals....

I feel somewhat successful in learning this whole blogging thing. I have added some of my favorite sites to my blog, added a favorite blog list and added my jamuse portfolio link.

Demise of Create Magazine

After the downfall of Create Magazine—their merge with Jupiter Media.
Well, I am lost without my site on create magazine. So, I have decided to take the plunge into creating a blog for my developing graphics company, DreamSpeaker graphics. Being a newbie at this I am sure to make a lot of mistakes and learn a lot through experimentation and hopefully suggestions and insights from fellow bloggers.
