I am designing a basic site for my dad's business, which is mining/blasting engineering. He wanted something a bit fun and bright, not too corporate. This design was a winner in my books but he doesn't want to emphasise the blasting too much, apparently.

I haven't tried comic book style stuff before so it was fun to experiment a bit, even though it's not strictly a comic style in the end.

DVD menu

I made this original image a long time ago and never used it for an actual project or anything. Then it came time to make a DVD menu for my showreel and I thought it would fit well - looks kind of interesting and very clean... shiny!
I chucked a particle effect inside the globe on the left just so it wasn't COMPLETELY static and did some color grading but didn't animate the whole menu. I'm not convinced it's really needed.

Simple and I think it works fine. 3D stuff really can be so helpful if used well... i wish i had maya or something at home so I could do more with it.

I made croissants last week, and as far as I'm concerned they are as aesthetically pleasing as any art, and far tastier. I love looking at the layers, the flakiness and the unique shape.
The photos were very red due to the lighting but I like it that way so I hardly processed them at all.
