I am using different papers to get the hang of new markers. Markers are not something I am very good with, especially color.All Black Iron Man went wrong with the hands and feet. Color Iron Man went wrong with the colors. I meant to match the colors to the classic Iron Man from issue #69. It didn’t work.
I am going cut down some marker paper and scan All Black Iron Man so I can practice colors. Over, and over, and over again.
I also obtained an old book from The ROM featuring medieval armor, so I can practice those armored hands and feet.
This week's J5T is about Milee, owner of Blue Shift Designs. She is a Western New York creator of wonderful purses, personal accessories and home accents.
1. Blue Shift Designs is the brainchild of just one person, Milee. She is responsible for all creative designs and day-to-day operations of her company. Every item is absolutely unique. Milee works with customers to deliver personalized and custom products based on the needs and wants of the individual. She has an amazing way of making products that look loved.
3. She isn't limited to soft goods, Milee creates notions for the home in the form of reusable aromatherapy packs, wooden objects de art and custom signs.
4. Her signs are made from lumber reclaimed from barns and are hand worked; no automated tools such as CNC machines or lasers for her.
5. All of Milee's designs incorporate an upcycling ethic. She endeavours to produce products from truly vintage materials when possible, for a unique look and feel.
Milee has been most gracious in allowing me unprecedented details about her creativity and focus. I will be posting about Milee's talents and adventures in wood products for the home. She has a love of aboriginal dot art, reclaimed materials and hand craftsmanship. I look forward to the next post about Blue Shift Design.
