Description: WIP. this is a little piece I'm working on for a elementary school. It's a design used on an award for a student that reads a certain amount of books. We may put it on shirts also for the winners. Still working on details. But it has been put on hold awhile for now, but wanted to share anyway.

HA! Thanks, Bernd. that was quick. you live here? :D
Truly thanks bud.
This will most likely end up being a freebie, but it for a elementary school where my daughter went and now my granddaughter is going, so what could I say. :)

pro bono for the right reasons is never a bad thing.

Mikeymike Jan. 31 '13

Colin, I agree.
But its not pro bono yet, that's one of the reasons its on hold. But that's a good thing, they want to use it on a bigger scale now, so looking for some funding. We'll see. Glad you like it though. cheers.

Very good, great colors to.
Love the type, it's custom or commercial?

Mikeymike Feb. 28 '13

Nido, as far as texturing on some of my stuff its a tough one to explain. But I have gathered different textures over the years form scanning rough surfaces. Everything from jeans to bricks. Setting the contrast real hi then live tracing in illustrator and bring them back in to photo shop to place. Then I make them white or other colors and experiment with different effects, like pin light, or color burn and see what I get. Hope that helps get things started. But you probably already know that stuff.
Chanpion, thanks for the rockin' comment.
Killanov and natic thanks also for the nice comments.
THX, leopat. It was custom.
