Using your Face

Busy on Pinterest and found this little beauty. A great post from Helen Bailey on inspiredology.com about using your face to make a personal website. Great inspiration, as I was thinking of doing something similar for my portfolio. Off course I’m not a super model, so it was going to be heavily edited and creative use of my face.

Hotwheels Elite Collection

Hotwheels Elite Collection. Make Daddy Jealous.

The meanderings of a graphic designer, following the www road I stumbled upon these ads for Hotwheels. As a child I was always a Matchbox and Dinky toys fan, but seeing these adverts now as a father myself it stirred an emotion to have all my cars back on display. Aaahem and maybe play around with them for a while.
