Brain juice

It's a little daunting that my graduate school career will be over in a few months! The last year and a half has flown by so fast. To keep myself somewhat sane through this whole process, I've been tinkering around with some design and photography just for fun. I take quite a few photos for this blog, and a lot of them don't get used because they don't necessarily make sense for a post. Sometimes I revisit my archives and repurpose the photos for design stuff. 
Below are a couple based on some of my favorite pop culture things!

I've mentioned my love of "Game of Thrones" quite a bit on this blog, and I decided to take it to the next level by making a pretend book title for the series. The inspiration was a photo I took over the summer of a lion door decoration I found downtown. 

This next one was inspired by a quote from "No Country for Old Men," one of my favorite movies. I took the original photo in north Georgia, and just transformed it in Photoshop and InDesign. The fonts I used for these are "Clumsy" and "Mexcellent" (both recommendations from Pugly Pixel, a great design resource). 

I'll try to share more of my extra design/photography stuff here in the future!
