In the St. Louis area and need something fun to do this Friday? Head on over to Pieces Board Game Bar and Cafe! They have over 950 games to choose from and some really tasty foods. It’s actually been a while since I’ve gone to Pieces as a customer, I should schedule time to do it. Of course, Timid Lion will be there from 8p-10p drawing free caricatures. Make sure you stop by and say hey!
Hello once again and welcome back. Yesterday, I mentioned that I was creating a logo for my home media streaming service. This service, which I call, Otisflix, is simply a media server that I stream tv shows from when at home. For my daily art post, I figured I would share my concepts page.
It’s Daily Art time. It should be a lot of fun to see where these posts take me. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m leaving myself a lot of wiggle room as to what I share. My goal is to make illustrations the bulk of what is shared. I’m also going back and forth on if I should post on weekends or leave it for Monday through Friday.
The art for today is a design piece. Over the past year or so, I’ve been using an extra PC as a streaming device. I’ve gathered my collection of TV shows on DVD. It takes a bit of work but I get the episodes onto the computer and organized. Using Plex, which is a fantastic client media server, I can stream my own collection to any tv or mobile device. The benefit is I can access the media anywhere, I don’t have to pay a monthly streaming fee and I don’t have to worry about my favorite shows being removed from a streaming service. Obviously, I had to create a logo for this setup… which I call “Otisflix”.
Happy President’s Day to all of those living in the US. We all enjoy an extra day off for a three-day weekend… except me, as I have already made calls to two separate clients. They must not have gotten the memo.
Anyway, I’m planning on trying something new here on the blog. Later, I will be posting articles. These articles will be complete with sample art and examples. They should be fun. For now, I want to start pushing myself to share some kind of art everyday. I’m leaving the rules fairly open on this. Here is the art for today…
This coming Friday, Valentine’s Day, I will be heading down to one of my usual drawing spots: Pieces Board Game Bar and Cafe! You can find me there most Fridays drawing FREE CARICATURES! Who doesn’t love FREE! If you are in the St. Louis area and need something to do with your sweetie, head on over to Pieces. I’ll be drawing from 8p-10p. See you there!
Recently, I’ve made some positive changes in my life. Not that anything was wrong. It is just a good idea to evaluate things and make alterations that can positively impact your life. After reading several organizational/positive thinking books, I began to implement these changes. One exercise was of great help.
