On Moving On and Other Notable Subjects

I am posting here today to announce the relaunch of my design site curtisedesign.com! Please point yourself over to check out some new updated work, some you may have seen posted here, some completely new.

On another note, you may notice this new site has a blog built in, and as so I will no long be posting to this blog. It was a nice run, over 160 posts, over 250 comments, all over the past year and a half. 

But now I will have a clean slate to work with, new topics, new ideas, new work, and hopefully anyone who reads or views my blog will join me over at my new site and give me comments of love!

See you on the flip side!

Design Friends


Hello friends and foes, I have all but completely and outrightly miss treated this blog as of late, but I promise these things will change in the near future for this poor neglected blog.

Until then, you can set your sets to a little blog contribution called Design-Friends me and my two friends from good ol' Art Institute, Danni and Mayra, are putting together and posting to twice a week.

Check out Danni and Mayra's blogs here and here (respectively).

I will be posting my first of hopefully many posts on that blog tomorrow night, but for now you can check out both posts by Danni and Mayra who seem to have made me look like a blog flake (as Mayra would put it).

Also, for now you can feast your eyes on my quick little design square I made for the blog tonight, my very first contribution!

See you all soon!

It's been a while...



...and I apologize, I will try to relieve the fact that I have been the worstest blogger in the blog universe for the past month. But here I am today with a little update. As you will see above I am linking to my little book I did a while back...and you may wonder, "why is that?". Well, Blurb is now offering what I always wanted, a hardcover wrap print. What this means is that you no longer have to fuss with the dust jacket on the hardcover version (which is my most favorite kinda of book), the image is printed right there on the cover.

So go ahead, don't be afraid...buy one. Oh, and while your at it, buy me one too :) (help a broke guy out)

Oiler, The Bestest Cat in the World


Hello, and welcome to post 5 out of 5 of the childhood illustration series. This particular piece focuses on my childhood cat, who passed on last year at 17 years of age. She was the best cat to me even though she was quite grumpy when I was younger. Here she is depicted waiting outside the bathroom door like she often had done.

I hope you have enjoyed this series of illustrations, 5 illustration posts in 10 days coming to an end. Look forward to more posts in the future, and many other new things.

Shirt.Woot!


Good Morning and Happy Tuesday. If you would be ever so kind to direct yourself over to shirt.woot, you will see that I have my very first illustration up for sale on the site today and today only. If you would be ever so kind as to buy a few of these shirts and tell your friends the same I would think you were way cooler than I thought you were before you did so.

Thanks, and as always, please enjoy!

Fake Blood Packet


Hello there, post 4 of 5 in the childhood series.

Story goes as this: I thought it would be funny to smash a ketchup packet on my face and scream bloody murder whilst eating lunch at school in the 4th grade. Needless to say, no one thought it was very funny, my face smelt bad for the rest of the day, and I am permanently scarred for life. Please enjoy.

To be concluded...

Jack in the Bike


Hello again, here is post number two of the childhood series. This one is representing my Jack in the Box childhood. As a child with two working parents me, my brother, and my sister would ride our bikes down to the local Jack in the Box and eat lunch pretty much everyday. To this day I'm pretty much still tired of everything on the menu. Thanks for stopping by, please enjoy.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Walkman


Hello, here we have an example of one the cheesier memories of yore. As a young pup I used to listen to my walkman and my one and only tape, the Olsen twins with there big hit, "Peanut Butter".

As mentioned on my good friend Steph's blog, we will be posting 5 illustrations in 10 days based on the concept of our childhood. Check back here and to her blog for more fun.

Please enjoy.

Something New


Some new things on the horizon, a new batch of design posts planned for next week. So fresh and so new. Also, working on a new website that is better to showcase my portfolio, to update, and which continues to show the newest of me. Hopefully in the near future I will have more time to work on projects and just all around become a better and better designer.

To kick off this chapter in my design life I changed things up around here, and am posting this little post.

Please enjoy.

Robotic Open House


A fun little diddy for you to see, Enjoy!

Open House?




Rejected comps that I still like, maybe they will be seen in different variations within other projects...because I believe they are more than rejects, that they are my children and they need to see the mail boxes of thousands of Ai students and stuff like that! Enjoy!

Chocolate Lab


Hello all, long time no see huh? Yep, I have been working on stuff lately, though it's been stuff I probably shouldn't post due to the fact it hasn't been finalized with the client as of yet. This is a t-shirt illustration I submitted to a freelance client that just wasn't what they were looking for, so I thought I would share it with you.

Enjoy!
