That Poore Baby Blog

That Poore Baby Blog

Just what the world needs, another baby blog about another baby. What makes this one different? It’s original, witty, fun, informative yet somehow touching. Hopefully. They say having a baby is the biggest event in your life so I wanted to document it every step of the way. As time passes, it will be nice…

Best Austin Jingles

Austin loves to refer to itself as the “Live Music Capital of the World” and while I haven’t been all over the world, I have seen enough to give Austin the benefit of the doubt. I have been to plenty of functions, like sporting events and open mics, where prerecorded music is the norm and…

That Poore Baby – The 3 Minute Baby Shower Video

I’m about a month away from being a father and have been staying busy preparing for the big day. I started a Tumblr blog called That Poore Baby to share the milestones with friends and family, and to keep a journal of the memories. We had our baby shower this past Sunday and I decided…

Unfortunate Celebrity Pairings – Tony Stewart and Martha Stewart

The other day my wife made a comment about how interesting it would be if some celebrities that happened to share the same last name were actually married. One example that she used was French Stewart and Martha Stewart, but I thought NASCAR legend Tony Stewart would make a far more interesting faux hubby for…

Old School Work: Linky Strike Chain Smoking Ad

The most important tool for a graphic designer is Photoshop and, while most people know their way around it, in a Digital Imaging course you learn how to use it correctly. That means non-destructive editing, proper layer organization and decent clipping skills. One of the projects in that course was to take a print advertisement…

Customizing Etsy-inspired Prints for Nursery

When outfitting a new nursery (see baby announcement), you need to get the basics: a crib, a changing table and lots of storage. Stores like Babies “R” Us, Buy Buy Baby, Target and IKEA are all good places to locate these items. Craigslist and thrift shops can also help for the less important pieces. Did…
