Things to come (hopefully)

I have pretty much finished the new Crossfit Knoxville site; all I need now is to make their blog as well as receive the additional content  they want added. I also can’t make the blog without their hosting info… hmmm…

Work In Progress

WIP of a slight variation of the original Samurai and Puppy. I don’t know how it got to this point, but I kind of like where it is going.


hmmm

whatever happened to that feeling of security?

Puppy and Samurai

I was thinking about my dog when she was a puppy while watching Yojimbo and thought “HEY! That would make an awesome t-shirt design!” Here’s what I have so far.

Friends with your Boss?

Being buddies with your boss… this concept has always fascinated me. I mean, is it really possible to really and truly be friends with your superior?

Personally, I have never done this– I mean sure, I have had employers that I really liked and respected and even went out for some drinks and such after hours, but I never held them in the same regard as an entrusted friend.
It’s just something odd about being amigos with someone who has power over you and can implement that authority at any time.
Sure, they may seem like the coolest and laid back person you’ve ever met, but you still have to exercise some semblance of professionalism.

The last thing I want to hear are the detailed grievances of my employer’s private life such as domestic issues, political and religious views, conspiracy theories (long story) etc. I’m also not interested in divulging too much of my private life to them either because it would inevitably lead up to a rather awkward working condition. Ignorance would definitely be valued commodity in this situation.

Having said that, I think it is very possible to have a great, friendly working relationship with your superiors, I have had such relationships in the past, but I have always maintained that fine line.

That’s my view however… has anyone else successfully managed to truly be friends with their boss?

Scared straight!

Just when I had some dark thoughts of buying a whole cart full of processed crappy foods, I watched the documentary ‘Food Inc.’ Scared straight, I am.

That was a close one!

Apparently my client sent their payment to the wrong Paypal account. Thank goodness they were able to cancel it before someone took it!

Now I can get started on those character sketches for the next animated project. It has the potential of being a rather entertaining endeavor.

Making some page tweeks.

I had a somewhat informative networking meeting that critiqued my site. Although I did not agree with some suggestions (changing color scheme to easter colors??) I did recieve some very helpful suggestions. Namely, changing my front page statement to “I get clients noticed(and give them cool stuff too). It serves as a better conversion hook to get the viewer interested.

I also changed my middle text to a series of benefit bullet lists, telling the viewer what I can do for them specifically.

Overall, I’m happy with it… for the moment.
