After working this morning on some applications and Katie’s card, I went out to run some errands and took a little side trip to Arnie’s Model Trains :) it’s an awesome little shop, really friendly people, and a lot of things to buy.
I have always had this fascination with model trains, but instead of just running out and getting an entire set of something, I found a clearance table with this cool little caboose for 99 cents :) so I just bought it and now it displays proudly on my desk. Maybe one day, Ill have an entire railroad to put it on :)
I stayed up for a while last night to work on Katie’s business card. And this is the final outcome.
What’s funny is that I actually these much more than my own haha. The design is made to look like a vintage camera and it has a hole punched out of the corner to make it look like a miniature camera :) I really think this turned out well.
If any of you are professionals and would like me to design a card similar to this, please contact me and check out a few things of my work at www.larivieredesign.net.
I can truthfully say that I can no longer contain my excitement. I created this because melting crayons, but it also represents a beautiful chaotic situation, much like what THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be. It’s a mess….but it’s a beautiful mess.

I will be attending a wedding for my dear friend and I am very excited :) she and I made a promise back at city college about me taking her wedding photos whenever that day came, but since we couldn’t work it out, I am deciding to give her a free maternity photoshoot when she has her baby in October!
This is the special gift certificate that I custom made to put inside of her card for today :) had a lot of fun making this one.
My final painting from this quarter: “Grandpa’s Boots”
This painting is special to me because my grandpa did the original ink drawing when he was about my age, almost 50 years ago. I am very similar to him and he was a great big influence on my life. The standing boot represents me grasping barely onto the fallen boot, my grandpa who died about 10 years ago.
