WOOT The site is L I V E!! *happy dance*

Ok, that title was pretty self-explanatory. LOL

After 20 years of being in business freelance, and four years of planning and dreaming, Renmeleon.com finally went live. *collapses* hehe I am so excited about all the stuff we are doing I cannot begin to tell you. Ok, I’ll try. :)

Breast cancer awareness jewelry and accessories *whispers…like pocket mirrors*, framed prints, two local Starbuck’s are going to be displaying my art… *takes a deep breath* …artists from all over the world donating artwork for the Art4NewOrleans effort, holiday stuff holiday stuff holiday stuff, new designs galore! hehe There is SO much going on and so many new opportunities.

Since I lost my printer (long story, needless to say I no longer support Xerox) I have been revamping my old designs for black & white. I have always enjoyed doing straight pen & ink, I love the high contrast. I will be posting some of my newest designs this week and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

I’ll post more as soon as things settle a little. Ha! Actually I hope it doesn’t. hehe Look to Renmeleon.com though for more art, more ideas, and…well, just more!

All I can say is …

WOW…

This has to be one of the most wonderfully invented, uniquely designed sites I’ve seen. I SO love Flash.

Explore everything, leave no stone or insect unclicked. hehe

Where can I buy the soundtrack??

Swiper No Swiping…

Ok, answer me this…

Big HUGE corporation. Band. Big HUGE corporation with enough money to redesign the world with their own private design team. Band. Big HUGE corporation steals band’s design.

Ummm … huh?

Found this posted on a blog I track and had to research it. Nike decided to pilfer art from a band that is pretty much on the other end of the spectrum as far as what it stands for.

A nickel for your thoughts

I was running through my Blogline subscriptions this morning and came across a post on Speak Up about the design of the new 2005 nickels.

The new 2005 nickel

I have to admit, I like them a lot. So much in fact that I carry a nickel around with me that I don’t spend and I have one at home on my desk taped above my pc. Why?

Simplicity. Good design. A reminder.

The original 1938 design is simple but not, in my opinion, as stylish.

This is the first time in a long time that I have looked forward to seeing what designs the US Mint will come up with next. The 50 State Quarters program, released in 1999, was probably that last one that held my interest.

Postage stamps, now there is a design topic.
