http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3186/2454971871_7b5bf96353_o.jpg I was just messing around with this. I used a few textures for it.

Here's a piece I did for an Easter calendar thing for "The Pitch". I stuck with CMYK and Orange. Super fun and I was given free reign to do what I wanted. Zach Trover is an awesome art director.

Thanks for the critiques guys. I actually did the Portfolio one first and I think I got more creative/bold as I went on. I'll rework it and see what I can do.
