Don't you wish your robot was hot like me.

So, I have been slacking on the posts lately, maybe im a bit burnt out. But I have some good news, here is a post today! Things are looking up, im excited to be recieving my copy of my book tomorrow and I will report on if it turned out any good. For this post I have two new designs, one a sticker and the other a shirt. Would anybody be interested in any of these? no matter what I will make them but I duno if anyone else cares much for them, so let me know. Also, I am going to start working on another book, this one in the format of a childrens book (for children from 1 to 92 ofcoarse) entitled "My Trip to the Misfit Dog Pound". I'm focusing on keeping the cost down on this one so it will be less than 20 bucks to buy, then it would be more worth the money. It should all be much fun in the end.

Mr. Elliott Design Vol. 1 is ready for launch!

Well, I thought this would take me longer, but once I got the ball rolling I couldn't stop, so I stayed up all night and put together my very first book. This one concentrates more on my personal design rather than my "professional" work (if you can call it that). So maybe the next one will focus more on that boring stuff. So anywho, here it is, in hardcover or softcover (I believe in freedom of choice), just follow the link at the bottom and order the book and all it's 40 pages of glory!

Some more boring words...

So I realize this is a design blog, and here I am posting my third post in a row without any designs. Well, I've been busy on them, I've actually started on another little series of robot posters, this time around with now general theme of a band or anything, just some good old fun robots. Also, I finished my screen for the first office Mr. Elliott Design T-Shirt, so if you want one either provide 5 bucks and I will print you one or provide a shirt and I will get around to printing it for you eventually. So next time I promise a new design, check back soon, my break from school is coming and with that new found time comes new found design. See ya.

A little update

So I thought I would give you an update on my progress with things design related. The book I spoke about earlier is underway, I already did about 30 pages of it, but I don't think I'm very happy with it. I think I'm going to scrap it and start over, because you people deserve more from it! This other book will be even more awsome and eye candy infested (hopefully), so hopefully that will be finished in the next couple weeks. Also, the shirts I had mentioned before are underway as well, I have the design completed and have botten the supplies and shirts to print on, now I just need to get a bunch of homework out of the way tonight and tomorrow I will print them up. So if you had mentioned to me that you wanted one, you will be getting one soooooooooon. And if you are getting one, a donation of $5 a shirt is welcome, because I am a starving artist and need to money! Well, hope all is well with everyone (all 5 of you), see you later.

In Memory of Bo Bo Elliott...

Today is a sad day, I'm sad to say that my dag Bo has passed on due to cancer. So I would like to dedicate this post to him, my dog, the family dog, who would so happily snarl at us as we came through the door everyday. I bet he's somewhere better though, better than this stinky old house, in a heaven where everyone scratches his chest and he can lick his balls and chew on his back all day.

Mr. Elliott Design Vol. 1

So it's been pretty much a week since my last post, which is the longest time I've waited between postings, but I have good reason. First off I haven't been just sitting around, things at school have been kicking up a bit but I've still been working on some more design goodness of my own. After a weekend of horrible computer trouble which ended with me having to re-install the entire OS on both my desktop and my laptop, I got to working on two promotional pieces for purchase (for cheap cheap cheap cheap!) because it gives me something to do with myself since the posters are done. First off is a t-shirt design I'm working on and will post later this week when I've finalized the design. Second is the big one and will take about a month before it's ready. I've decided to print up a book of all my favorite projects I've created on my free time, in school and so far at work. I'm already in the works of planning the book out and designing it's layout and what goes in and such. In this post is the working art for the cover that I put together tonight, I hope you like it, tell me what you think and I will keep you posted on how to get the book once it's finished. I'm really excited about this and even if no one ends up getting the darned thing it still will be worth it.
