So this is a bit of a diversion from the normal types of art I pursue (I'm keeping my options open for full-time work as you can probably imagine), but about a week ago I finished a skin test for a user interface for LOLapps (an up and coming app/game developer for facebook). I think it turned out very well. They gave me the test after speaking for a few minutes on the phone saying it would take two hours. Well if I did user interfaces on a regular basis I could have probably churned it out in two hours, but only after the necessary research into the style they wanted. All in all after the research was done, I think it took about 4 hours. So not too bad. I'll have to wait and see what they really think about it later though as they have decided to put off hiring for the position for a few months - bummer.

Having some fun with photos taken of my wife, daughter and myself from Halloween in our Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinkerbell outfits. I comped this together with a painted background in a pretty short time. Plenty more I could do, but I had to call it done before we went to visit the in-laws for a family dinner. It was lots of fun. Tight time tables can be quite liberating, and it feels nice to get something done so quickly.
