On a daily basis, my CafePress shop, “Bird Smirk Creations”, is about one in a million things available on the internet. And that might be a very generous assessment. What are the odds that somebody is going to come across my site? That’s right…about one in a million. Therefore, I have designed a physical counterpart to the digital Bird Smirk. The Bird Smirk business card.
I am thinking about purchasing 500 business card magnets and plastering them all over town. I hope it is not illegal. My theory is that people will take them and stick them on their refrigerator. On the other hand, if they don’t take them, they will serve as advertising… like a tiny, tiny billboard! Let’s see what happens, shall we?
What is this? What do you see? What is your first impression? What, exactly, is going on here? What do you say about playing a little game? Just describe what you see or feel. It can be an entire paragraph, or one single word. Just respond with something, please.
There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. There is only an answer. One answer. Yours.
Here is the new ScribblePad design. I will print some up as soon as I can. I call it, “Shark in Ocean”. I thought this shark kind of looked like a dolphin. (Just change the shape of the mouth area a little bit, get rid of the sharp teeth and vents on his neck, and you got yourself a dolphin.)
This art is the final result of my first foray into the wonderful world of computer graphics. It was 1997 and it was created while messing around on the computer in my Design class. This is also, quite possibly, the first time I ever scanned anything.
I believe it started out as a colored pencil drawing, and after a lot of computerized manipulation, morphed into what you see here. I actually believe that the original drawing was wildly different from this final draft. (I lost the original)
The Siamese Fighting Fish is officially called the Betta. Go here to be amazed by the beauty of these creatures! Photos of Betta.
I have a Betta and his name is Ruby and he is blue.
