I work on a slew of projects. So here are three business cards designed for promoting my various creative outlets. One is for my jewelry design company REfusedDesigns Studios, one is for this very blog about my art projects (www.tessamorrison.com), and the latest card is for StrangeKidsClub.com, who I write for and contribute content. My main passion is creating art with with my hands and I don’t think of myself as a graphic designer, but here are some business cards proving that I have some graphic design chops.
Looking at them now I see that I should have pulled down the text on the back of the orange card. The back of the RefusedDesigns card I see a strip of white on the left where the bleed didn’t extend far enough.
As you can tell I have a penchant for rounded corners. They don’t seem to get dinged up as quickly and are just more pleasant and tactile. The REfused Designs card with the gloss black text on matte black background is quite sharp. FYI, right now I have my etsy shop emptied. I’m debating whether I want to sell jewelry through them anymore.
Along with writing articles for StrangeKidsClub.com, I’m putting a piece in their comic book the Strange Kid Comix Magazine Vol. 3. More details on this comic book’s much anticipated release to come. For now, here’s the piece I created for this upcoming volume of 80’s themed nostalgia madness.
Click here to see images from Strange Kid Comix Vol. 2! Volume 2 included the works of David Hartman (who also did the cover), Glen Brogan, and many other talented artists. Hopefully with the release of the third volume there will be enough interest/money to do reprints of the first two and you can get your nerdy mitts on these rare comics.
You know that friend who goes on and on about movies when you simply asked if it was good or not? That’s me. So I’ve started writing movie reviews for the website Strangekidsclub.com.
Above is a sketch I did of the site’s mascot, Strange Kid.
Strange Kids Club is a site for those of you with a love for nerdy nostalgia and contemporary geek news. Whether your poison is comic books, cult/horror movies, cartoons, video games, puppets, toys, or all the above, Strange Kids Club is probably up your alley.
Other than writing articles for the website, I’m currently working on a few pieces for the 3rd Strange Kids Comic Book Anthology.
