DW Drum Kit OSX Icons – Vol 1

The other day on a transcontinental flight to NYC, I was playing with some of the imagery I created for the Drum Workshop Kitbuilder 2.0 project that launched in January.

The result was this set of twelve high resolution 512 px Mac OS X icons that look (and sound) killer in the dock.

My friends at DW were also gracious enough to let me distribute these icons. Let me know what you think.

2011 Lakers Pride Poster Contest Winner

I had a pleasant surprise a week ago, when the poster I designed for my son’s cub scout pack won the grand prize for the 2011 Lakers Pride Contest. This was a regional competition sponsored by Staples and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Staples sent each competing Scout pack a poster kit that consisted of 24 white squares of fabric, a bunch of colored markers, and a gift card for additional supplies. I created a modular design that allowed the various den leaders the ability to have their Scouts work on squares independently of one another to contribute to the big picture. The final results were stitched together with ribbon and submitted to the competition. Now that’s team work!

At the award ceremony, Lakers player Lamar Odom met with the pack, and presented them with the $1,000 prize. The poster will be on display at the Staples Center for the remainder of the season. click here for a slideshow

Now, if only Kobe can stay healthy, we’ve got an excellent chance of winning the NBA Championship for another three-peat. Go Lakers and Pack 91!
