Random Record Album Cover Project

One of my friends tagged me for this random challenge on Facebook.

Here are the directions:

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it to FB with this text (starting with "Here are the directions") in the caption and TAG the friends you want to join in. You can remove your tag if you don't want to do it, or don't want to have this show up in your photos.

My "band", Bodza, is a village in Slovakia. The "title" is from a quote by Nora Ephron. The photo is "Pelicans on pilings of a Saint Petersburg pier". I used a photo from the Commons on Flickr because I felt uncomfortable using someone's personal photo.

Adobe Photoshop was used to create the finished image. I also included the following statement when I posted it on Facebook just to make sure:

To avoid violating copyright laws, I hereby state that the flickr image I used in this challenge was acquired from the State Archives of Florida photostream in the The Commons

Happy Pancake Day!

I hope everyone has a delicious Pancake Day!

This is a web banner I made for Dan to use on his school's web site. It was designed using Adobe Illustrator.

DC Comics Valentine Cards: Cat Woman and the Mystery Hero

Here are some Valentine cards from 1982. Cat Woman was given to me by a friend just for fun. She gave cards out to others with the usual heroes but had the mystery hero left over. She gave that one to me and I have been trying to figure out who he is.

I don't know who he is, do you?

Update - My sister informed me that his name is El Dorado. She got the information from a friend who noted that El Dorado was from the Super Friends show and never in a comic book. Here is a link with more information about him.

Love Badge

I designed this as a "Flair" design for Facebook. Flair is an application on Facebook where you can choose virtual buttons/badges to display on your profile or send to Facebook friends. You can also design Flair to get more points (to get more badges!) It's all just for fun.

I was in a groovy mood when I designed this. It reminds me of that Good & Fruity commercial from the early 70s. Now I can't get it out of my head.
