Virginia Tech Tribute Wallpaper
2007-04-17 23:27:00
I felt a great sadness for all the students at Virginia tech after hearing about the horrible incidents that took place on April 15/07.

Comic #1: Druggy Comic
2007-04-15 07:29:00
Although this blog is my design blog, I’ve decided to post a comic I have done in 2006 which is a little off topic. It pokes fun at the over-stressed drug culture within our post-secondary system. I was just flipping through my past works, and I enjoyed this witty little piece. Click on it to ...

The approach is very simple: 1. Create an appropriate xhtml page compatible with you css style sheet 2. Import the style sheet and xhtml into a textFrame 3. Create ...

As a way of promoting my promotional website (I?m a promo guy, what can I say) I decided to release a quality wallpaper every week (or so).
