Graphics work

Vector Graphics

I’m working on custom stylized car vector graphics as a concept for vinyl graphics. My wife, Kelly has been creating custom vinyl graphics for a few years, and I sometimes help her create source files for her Silhouette cutter.

Photos of the Year: 2013

Apparently I didn’t take many photos in 2012. Or at least didn’t keep many. I can only find one folder of them on my hard drive of the time, and that’s full of pretty average photos of my older beagle, Jack. So, I’m skipping 2012, and here are my favourite three from 2013. Apparently 2013 […]

Speed and the loss of anticipation

Fast things sure can be exciting.  But they can have a down side too.  After almost eight years with a Santa Fe, AWD with the base engine, I’m used to my car taking its sweet time to reach the speed limit.  My Elantra gets there in just over 6 seconds, assuming a zero start, and […]

Dell Service

I decided to order a new laptop recently, and since my Dell desktop has served me well for 9 (!) years, I decided to stick with Dell for this purchase. I took advantage of the Black Friday deals, and for Dell, this started a little before Black Friday itself. I ordered my laptop from Dell.ca […]
