Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, I have been insanely busy. I am currently condensing a months worth of work into two-weeks and I am working on other projects as well. I have been getting really busy for web out of no where, and I have been busy getting those final invoices of the year paid. So I have been going crazy! I have a lot of new projects in the wings for 2009 and I will post more about them as they pop up. I will be changing up my site, blog and offerings in 2009. Don’t worry, I will still give away freebies, in fact more of them. This was my first year blogging and it was very fun and interesting. But I have definitely learned more about what I need to be doing and how I need to do it. Very shortly I will have a new vector to post up for free for you guys as well.
Also, if you haven’t checked out my latest vector collaboration then check out VectorTuts, where I worked with Ben Blogged and came up with some fun free tattoo inspired vectors.

Many of you who know me personally know how much Joshua Smith of Hydro 74 has helped me out in various stages of my design career, and now Josh is putting on a really cool show with PaleHorse in St. Petersburg. It is called the Back in Black T-Shirt Exhibit. Basically, it is a art exhibit for amazing t-shirt designers such as, Hydro 74, PaleHorse, YWFT, Jimiyo, and Munk One to name a few. The coolest thing about this show, is that even if you can’t make it, you can actually purchase your favorite t-shirt through Design By Humans! I encourage any of you who can to go, and who can’t to at least check out the site here.

So today ended up pretty good. It started out badly because my eyes are all messed up, but I ended up finding out that I will be designing some pieces for Metro Park. That is a huge deal to me because one of my hugest inspirations and one of the biggest legends around has his work at Metro Park. Oh, you don’t know who I am talking about, only the one and only Obey Giant! So I am pretty stoked, and as things get selected I will show what I can. But look for some of my stuff showing up in a store near you!
Wow, so this is a shocker. I am still early on in my designing career, and when I was first starting out and learning from everything and everyone I could, I found a really helpful site that I visited daily called VectorVault. A lot of you who visit my blog on a regular basis probably already visit VectorVault already, but if you haven’t checked them out yet, please do so. But what is absolutely awesome and completely out of this world, is that they just contacted me to let me know that so many members have notified them of me, my work, and my blog, that they actually wrote a brief article about my work! It is such an honor to have them like my work that much, because VectorVault was literally one of my cornerstones of design. So all of you members of VectorVault that mentioned me, thank you. And all of you who just enjoy my work and are learning from me, thank you as well.
Also I have some more awesome news. I have been contacted by an agency who is wanting me to do some designs for some pretty cool brands, amongst them is No Fear. So that will be a rush. Hopefully I will have some more stuff to show you guys soon.
Wow! I am very exited about a really great site called Vectortuts. They have a VERY amazing list of tutorials already and in their first Best of Web, my vector flourishes made the cut. I am very honored by the mention and check out some more great tuts and freebies from Vectortuts.
