I had an idea to find some word randomizer or creator and almighty google gave me this brilliant tool - Random Word Generator that you can find at http://www.nexi.com/fun/rw/index.html
So you need to input a few words into this simple form and hit the button and check out the result. On the first go it asked me to enter at least 10 words or more and there is a simple instruction on how to choose the theme. As I got stuck on the first try with only 6 words I decided to ask my girlfriend to give me some and she went: “Affirmation, Security, Reassurance…”
Hold on – I thought, I can’t use her particular stream of consciousness and apply it to my very random list, so I tricked her into giving me 10+ words I needed for my little experiment.
Here is her list: Affirmation, security, reassurance, faith, trust, gentleness, peace, harmony, certitude, love, presence, silence, child.
What else one would expect from a female holding the latest Julia Cameron book in one hand and a fountain pen filled with turquoise ink in another? So, I was full of good expectations and here is the result:

I love this picture because of its brightness, its lovely announcement of itself as entrance to receiving old slow ways of communication, its rusty ridges contrasting with its sunshine turquoise colours… It’s a statement of its function and it’s a greeting to new enveloped visitors.. it’s clear and it’s mysterious. It’s Dublin but also that rare captured happiness – Dublin in the sun. It is a small monument to history and its a quaint loveliness for Dubliners of today who treasure their past cultures. It’s a simple picture but it’s also an invitation to the curious to ponder what intimacies passed through the cave of its mouth. (This text written by Rose Lawless about Green Post Box image)
One Little bunny rabbit went for a walk
skip-skip, jump-jump, plock-plock
Big curvy carrot got stuck in his teeth
But he can not afford a dentist…
And he’s ugly too
to tell you the truth
Thursday is normally the last day of work in the office for me. So I desided to post galleries of all assorted projects previews, logos, illustrations and other graphics. It will serve more like portfolio but with actual feel of the sketch book or diary of the visual graphics professional. I’m sorry if all these blurbs are not very well written – they are on the go and not intended to be any sort of creative writing.
Please tell me any thoughts, ideas, or you can simply bring about your most vicious inner critic and give it opportunity for a flaming review!
Picture I’ve taken on Christmas Day in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. Shahid woman on the disk parking machine, dog in the tree, way out up from the box and 7Up – pretty good combination don’t you think? It reminded me about the change in Moscow underground. They wanted to replace all signs “No way out” for something less depressing. I want to see a pokemon instead of a man pictogram on the road-crossing signs.
Also you can see some other pictures on flickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/dublingame/361031164/
Friend of mine known as Ginger asked me to design something with words Go Vegan – so after a bit of doodling and scaning and brushing-up the logo – here comes the result of 20 minutes hard work. Any comments?
