So I decided it was about time I post again. I know it has been a while, but I'm not gonna apologize this time, cause I think I've done that on the last two or three posts and you probably get the picture by now. :-)

Although I have been absent from the blogosphere, I have been working in PhotoShop quite a bit. I am working right now on redesigning our church's website ( as well as quite a few other small graphics for different people. I have been designing quite a few sports-related graphics this past week which is a lot of fun.

(a few of these may cut off at the end, just click on the graphic to open the full thing in a new window)

This graphic is not for anyone in particular, I just thought the stick and puck were neat. So I took the picture into PhotoShop, jazzed it up a bit, added some text with a motion blur, and out came a pretty neat little banner.

I love the contrast in this one...

And this one...well, you gotta love Roberto Luongo no matter what you do with him, but I love this graphic. Some of the best graphics out there are some of the simplest too, and I love the simplicity, contrast, and colours of this graphic.

So...shying away from the sports theme a bit, this is a header I made for a friend of mine's blog. Not really a lot to say about it. I can't say it is one of my best, but he seems to really like it and I think it will serve it's purpose well.

A little bit of Spider-Man action...everyone loves Spider-Man.

And last, but not least, I have finished my wallpaper set for our church. They can be viewed here. (

Well, that's it for now...I hope you enjoyed. I will try to start posting more often, but I can't make any promises. :-D

Sorry it has been so long since I posted, I have had a pretty busy summer, and it looks like I am about to start a busy year of school.

I guess, now that it's been a couple of months since I said I would, I will show you all my new portfolio/business (kind of) site, which is still not completely done and doesn't view all that well in IE. (I hate IE) It should look fine if you view it in FireFox or Opera. Angus Templates Portfolio

On another note, I am designing a set of twelve desktop wallpapers - one for each month - for our church to use this coming year and my three blog readers are lucky enough to get a sneak preview. :-)

This is, obviously, a 2007 version, but I can't go around giving out 2008 wallpapers! Anyway, the picture will be the same, just different dates on the calendar. I will post all twelve in January when they are 'released to the public'.

I think that's all for now...oh, one more thing! I made some "Cars" graphics, check them out...

Sorry I never posted the other day, but here I am now. I just wanted to let you guys know that I am VERY soon going to be starting on a portfolio site for myself. I am very excited about it, mainly because the design is just coming together so perfectly in my mind. Can't wait till I get to show you!

Sorry for the lack of posting lately, I had to reformat by harddrive, and it has taken a few days to get everything back up and running. I will post later this afternoon with a graphic, and some other stuff.

Well, I guess it's time to get back into the swing of doing a graphic a day. I missed yesterday, so I will post at least 2 today, and I also have some exciting news (for me anyway) to share!

Graphic #1:

Graphic #2:

This one isn't really a graphic I guess, it's a picture I took this last Sunday at Church. I'm no photographer, but I thought it looked pretty neat.

Now for the news! (I won't make you wait 2 weeks like Kate Marie) I have got a new web design request, not a blog, but a full template. Here is what I have so far, but I just started. There are two good things about this job...1) The guys wants a very simple site, no flashy buttons or graphics, which makes my job easier. (I hope what I have so far is simple enough.) 2) He is willing to pay up to $200, although I don't plan to charge that much, it's exciting that I'm even being offered that much. The bad thing is that I don't know how much to charge! LOL. Although I have had the ability to for a while, this will be my first full, custom template to sell. Katie Marie, how much do you usually charge?

Wow, it's been a busy few days! We have been trying to squeeze in as much as we can while my Grandparents are here. Friday we took a ride on one of the many ferries up here, and then went from there down to Castle Fun Park and played putt-putt and some arcade games. Then on Saturday we just kind of napped during the morning, and then played quite a few different board games that afternoon and evening. Yesterday was obviously Church in the morning, and then we had the evening service at our house. We had some hotdogs and hamburgers, had a 30 minute service, and then more board games! Then one of the guys from our church stayed the night and we played some X-Box and watched Ice Age 2. Today...well, it's yet to be seen what we will do. My Grandparents will be leaving at about 2:30, so maybe we can squeeze in one more game or something. I just found out that I do not get today off school like I thought I did - today is Victoria day - apparently we took our day off on Friday, and someone forgot to tell me. :-\ Oh well, maybe I shouldn't have played x-box until 2:00AM in that case? LOL

Now for the graphic of the day, actually this one will have to cover a few days, hehe.

It's already getting late here, so I am not going to make a long post, just wanted to post a graphic for the day. I may miss this for a day or two this week with my grandparents being in town.

This is one of my personal favourites that I've made, I love the way it turned out.
