Despite what I was talking about yesterday about not having motivation to do anything, I am still running off of a great high from spending time at BlizzCon 2013 2 weeks ago (speaking of which, I still need to go through and edit photos from that day).

So here is a new design piece I worked on yesterday. I pretty much started out with a circle and then just went crazy with more shapes, layer styles, blending modes, layer masks, and adjustment layers. Overall it was a fun exploratory piece to work on since I really had no direction whatsoever.
Here is my newest design piece I worked on over the weekend. Its a retro custom typography poster I started on a few weeks ago but only recently had the chance to finish up. It was somewhat of a spur-of-the-moment type of process in finishing it up because I didn't really have...
One of the more exciting aspects of building this site was finally using Zurb's Foundation Framework more in-depth. I briefly used it last year when I built the first version of this site, but only as a one pager. Luckily this time around, I had just finished designing this site when...
