VECTORS VECTORS!!!

I have to apologize again for the lack of posts lately. We have officially moved to a bigger location. I will be honest with you, we were located in a flea market that I am extremely grateful for but we have come to a point where we needed to expand. So for the next few days posts will be rare, but I will try to keep you all posted as much as I can.

Anyhow, I have come across some great sites that offer free vectors!!! Yes for all you graphic designers out there ready made vectors is like finding hidden 1up mushroom in Mario Bros. (too old school??)

If they do have a donate option, send them a little something if you can.

Enjoy: Vectors

Positivi-tees…

Yes it has been a few days since my last post. I’ve been very busy, and I will post what has been happening at Underground Creations soon.

Anyhow, in today’s fashion world we can all say that there is a handful of tshirt lines out there. We all notice that everyone is knocking off everyone and no one really stands out. There are a few out there, but they are completely in the underground and its hard to discover them. Trust me I know.

Well let me shed some light on a company I’ve had the pleasure designing for: BPlusCLothing

The whole concept for their clothing is simple. Taking inspiring words from some of the worlds top icons, and passing the message on through their clothing.

I think its a great thing that they are doing and its going against the grain on what clothing lines usually go for in terms of concept.

Other than the great images that these shirts have, the words are what we should focus on. I have always said that one of the most powerful things in this world, are the words that we put out into the universe.

BplusCLothing will be available online and stores soon and we will definitely keep you posted.

But for now, go check out there stuff: http://www.bplusclothing.com/

Homeless Designer…

This goes out to all you graphics designers, illustrators, and painters out there.

There’s this rumor going around that designers come a dime a dozen. And I’ve actually heard that slip out of previous people Ive worked for.

Now here’s our struggle. People seem to believe that what we do is so easy and that it takes no time to finish. What people dont understand is that we have gone through schooling (some of us not), and have lost years of sleep to become this good in order to complete a job in no time. And not to mention develop a sharp sense of imagination so we can mentally put together your design.

Im just gonna go on a small rant and say that I cannot stand when people tell you how much they will pay you for a contract and don’t even ask you if its fair.

Ive been in the game for 9 years and if a client wants to pay me 25$ for a logo, I hand them a stick man.

Side note: Professional Graphic Designer should be paid minimum 30$/hour. MINIMUM. And when I say professional, I mean Professional. Not those people that learned designing of YOUTUBE.  Yall give us a bad name, so go back to the etch a sketch and just stop it!

Now this shirt I have created for all you freelance, or full time 9-5 designers who get underpaid. You know you deserve more. It seems that your artwork is only worth millions once you are dead.

Production for this shirt is now happening and will be available next week. For pre-orders please email me or you can click on the pay pal link which will be available in the link above “Limited Edition”

or just click here

For all you designers out there, heres a little treat. We search the deepest parts of the net to find great sites for vectors, cus’ there are times when us artists do get a little lazy to retrace images on Illustrator. And sometimes hitting that good ol’ “live trace” button just doesnt give you the results you want.

Well here’s some links for you. some of you may know that but those who don’t…..enjoy!
