A Few Recent Projects

Kind of as a joke, and partially just for fun, I doctored up this Pop Tarts image with an imaginary new flavor.

Kid’s Space Design

One of the coolest things about my job is that I get to work on a wide variety of projects. Since we recently launched a new facility at our Pellissippi Campus of Faith Promise Church, we’ve had the opportunity to branch out into designing components for several spaces in the building.

As Heather Burson (our Graphic Designer) and I talked it over, we decided that it would be nice to try to make our outdoor modular building feel a little bit more kid friendly. The inside was great, but the outside of the building needed something to make it look more exciting.

I mocked up some designs and put them into production, and today my dad and I installed the elements (he’s in the pictures, but I promise I was doing the work too – LOL).

I would make several changes if I could do it over again, but I’m still very happy with the overall improvement to the space.

 

Completed Boba Fett Costume!

Finally, after months of building my Halloween costume, it’s finally finished. :)

For photos of the work in progress, go here.

Boba Fett Costume Build

As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been building a Boba Fett costume for Halloween. It began with my wife’s innocent comment that it would be fun to dress up as Star Wars characters as a family, and when the costume I bought online didn’t live up to my expectations, I began to research how I might build my own costume. Fortunately, there’s a ton of great tips online, and I quickly found myself totally hooked. I love a good project, and without a doubt, this has been the best project I’ve ever attempted.

Below are photos of my costume through the process. I’ll continue to update this post as I add new components.

Rather than just serving as an example of my compulsiveness, I hope that others attempting to build a Boba Fett costume might find some ideas here and avoid some problems I encountered.

Pics of completed costume here.

Drawing Party

Every once in a while, my two oldest kids and I will sit down and have a “drawing party” together. Sometimes it’s coloring, and other times it’s freehand. Today was a freehand day, and since the sketch turned out nice enough, I decided to go ahead and ink it in. Maybe I’ll add some color digitally, like I did with the Wild Thing last year.

By the way, if you haven’t heard yet, my wife and kids are dressing up in Star Wars costumes for Halloween. I’m building my own Boba Fett costume, and I’ve become completely obsessed with the project. Maybe I’ll share a few pics sometime soon. :)
