Im-Ur-Dream-Guy

Hey everyone! Nicky here 🙂

Let me present my new kinetic type piece: Im-Ur-Dream-Guy. Inspired by the many comments that men send women on Tinder, I decided to create a monologue of a woman’s “dream guy”, describing why he would be the perfect one for you.

Please like and share 🙂

A Must Watch

Well fellow readers, I’ll keep this post brief and direct.

CLICK ON THIS LINK: http://theshuv.blogspot.ca/2013/07/the-shuvs-made-to-murder-promo_17.html

If you click the link, magical things will happen! You will discover something truly exciting! YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!! (LOL I’m too excited for my own good… this is what happens when I share/spread the word about stuff that’s just awesome!)

Anyways, before I lose my mind, and readers for that matter, I’ll give a brief explanation of where the link will take you.
I mentioned in a previous post about one of my best friends from school, Moe. Along with his incredible talent of drawing and design, he also has a knack at video editing and production.

I will say no more and let you experience it for yourselves.

You won’t be disappointed trust me 🙂

My Business Card

I have been asking myself this particular question recently… WHAT AM I GOING TO DO DURING THE SUMMER????

This does seem like a far off idea considering Christmas hasn’t happened yet, but in order to have something in place for summer, the planning has to begin now. The reason is simple: the good jobs will be gone.

Yes, I am planning on working somewhere during my summer break for money (of course) and for work experience. I do not have any intention of recreating my previous summer which consisted of doing nothing productive. Therefore, I need to form a plan of action.

Since complaining to my parents hasn’t gotten me anywhere, I have decided to put my name out into the world. Sure, I have my blog and that definitely has sparked some interest in people, but I need to start networking with designers.

In the design world, knowing different designers will help in future job opportunities. As well, getting your name out to potential clients is also a good idea.

So here is my business card I designed today. All I need to do now is print it out.

When in Doubt, Sketch!

The stereotypical artist/designer:

  1. funked up hipster clothing
  2. crazy hair
  3. SKETCHBOOK IN HAND!

3. on the list is the most important tool for any creative individual.

Why is this?

It helps to recollect inspiration around you.

I have heard people say to carry a sketchbook wherever you go, and I may just take them up on that suggestion. Considering that I live in a diverse and unique city, many interesting things may occur and I may want to remember those things I see, hear, etc. You can do a quick doodle or a full on drawing, just as long as you place it on the paper is better than nothing.

Here is the stack of my sketchbooks:

And here is a drawing I made for my cover page for my Grade 12 Art sketchbook (Andy Warhol inspired and I used my Promarkers of course 😀 )
