If you are making badges you need a slot punch. This is not news to people who have been doing this for a while. For those of us getting into the business, it is good to know that this is apparently the unicorn of office supplies.

Wishing I had more time.
Practice makes perfect
We all know the saying. It’s mostly right. Which means sitting down with your art everyday. Most of the week I work in colored pencils but once a week I work on the iPad to throw my hat into the derby. Shirt.woot.com has a contest every week for T-shirt designs. It gives me a goal, a time frame, and a topic of someone else’s choosing.
Not always my best work but always good practice.
Multi Media Art
I used to really hate leaving a negative space to show light reflections on my pencil art. The white color pencil exists but, let’s face it, it won’t color over another color. Then I watched some videos of people drawing in 3d and noticed that they were using paint pens. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it but now my art has left the flat behind. It’s still a long way from 3d but it’s come a long way.
