An arbour on fire wasn’t going to enough for the final cover for The Audacity Gambit, but painting some flowers worked better than expected.
Designing The Cover for The Audacity Gambit: The Arbour
One of the more truly exciting things for me in any project is the packaging and design aspect. As a present to myself, I’m spending some on the cover.
Made/Did (last week)/Nails
I’ve up and redesigned my portfolio site. It’s in a style that I like, but other people might hate. Eh. My business cards are now obsolete, but really the stylings I had before are, like, a precursor to the style there now, y’know—art historically (faintly, I’m sure, but I don’t mind). Anyway, if you see something broken or stupid, let me know. Below is a screenshot of the opening page. I likes it. There’s more tinkering to be done (the “Shop” button does nothing), but pretty much there it is.
What I did with my evening
If you don’t get it right off, it actually probably reflects positively on you. (above shot by Chase) Had I guessed that other people cared about the Joker’s socks in Dark Knight, I would have done some Google before mapping out the pattern myself. I am wickedly proud that it’s tileable though, and (I think) each colour is represented an even number of times. I am a nerd.
