My Cosplay Journey – LeakyCon

I think I knew about LeakyCon, an amazing Harry Potter convention, for about a year before I finally got to go. In 2011  the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 came out in theaters and LeakyCon was held opening weekend in Orlando, Florida. That summer I started following anyone and everyone I could find associated with Harry Potter on social media. I know … Continue reading My Cosplay Journey – LeakyCon

Cover Design – Scenes from the Catastrophe

This was another case of combining my ideas with the author’s lead to something I think we can both be proud of. In this case he asked for a simple black cover with red text. The book is a collection of short stories and I think he was just thinking along the lines of keeping it simple. Since we were doing 3 mockups and there … Continue reading Cover Design – Scenes from the Catastrophe

The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet – Book Review

Now I’m down … Continue reading The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet – Book Review

My Cosplay Journey – Poison Ivy

An old boyfriend had bought me a ticket and we ended up taking my dad too, because he is a major nerd, even if he won’t admit it. Since I had never been to a convention … Continue reading My Cosplay Journey – Poison Ivy

Cover Design – Deadly Motivations

This was a case of getting very lucky with stock photography, thank you Thinkstock 🙂 . I love how this design came out, it reminds me of older science fiction novels like Jurassic Park or Ray Bradbury novels with the monochromatic imagery and the strong typeface in the title. It helps when I get a nice wide spine to really make the title stand out as … Continue reading Cover Design – Deadly Motivations

Little bit of clay everything

I’ve been working on some different clay projects hoping to come up with something worth trying to sell that isn’t a direct copy off of something someone else has made. So while I’ll still be making some copycat figures and posting the tutorials and websites along with these posts, here are some of my creations. I was thinking of making several of these little bees, … Continue reading Little bit of clay everything
