Piggies Creations

Change, Change, Change…

Always seems that I am trying something new :P

I am finding that I am not having any luck selling my Little Ones on Etsy. Its been a frustrating process and I have to confess that a large part of it is that I simply don’t commit any real time to it. I am better at selling things in RL. Being able to engage my customer through conversation is my strong point…

The solution? Family!

I have hired the Skunk (my cousin) to do the selling for me. The Skunk has years of success selling things on line. I’m hoping I can benefit from her experience! So, keep you’re fingers crossed! If it seems like this is going to work, I will post further details.

Created for the Poster Heroes competition for an assignment for school. This is being submitted into the category of B_obesity and malnutrition. I wanted to draw attention to the fact that individuals who are obese can also be just as deprived and badly off as people who are starving. Both conditions are killing them. Food that is low-cost in the United States is almost always filled with chemicals and fillers to mask the cheap ingredients made. In Mississippi and Louisiana, obesity rates are epidemic because poverty keeps most from eating healthy foods. (Don’t believe me? Check out a pack of Fish Sticks in comparison with a few apples and oranges.) 
Painted in Photoshop CS-4 with a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. 
Fonts used are Tall Films and Akzidenz Grotesque.


This is very well done!

Memory Book

My little brother got married :O

So, I’m making him a memory book. I posted on face book that I was looking for pictures of the wedding and I got a serious in flood of pictures. I ended up with like 4000 of them! It has taken me months to sort through all the photos. I paired it down to 1000 photos and now have been working through them to get it down to the 100 that will be in the book. My daughter has been helping me with the project so it has been a lot easier. She has helped me sort the photos into categories and we’re making the book with those categories determining which will to use on what pages. Made it way easier. She has such great ideas!
