Personal Exploration Design in Progress: Open to Critique

Lots of my readers have asked me/been interested in seeing some of my personal designs. I started the BittBox User Showcase @ Flickr recently, but most of what you'll see there from me are designs I make for my posts here on BittBox. I enjoy taking the time to provide example designs for all of my posts, but I thought you all would like this much better. The image below (and at the BittBox User Showcase) is a personal piece I've been working on. I have no client for this. Just an empty living room wall and an appetite to learn and explore new techniques. I'm constantly trying to improve my skills, and practice is the way I do it. I hope you like the piece. (not the final version. I would consider this about halfway done.)

BittBox Personal Project

If you look at this piece, you might notice that a lot of the elements are either BittBox Freebies/Brushes, or a technique from a BittBox Tutorial. Yes, some of the elements in this design are purchased from iStock (the photo of the woman for example, and the fancy flourishes) but I just wanted to share a personal piece with all of you. I have looked at over 63 images in the BittBox User Showcase on Flickr, and I'm extremely impressed. I love what I see, and I can't wait to see future postings. I don't consider myself your teacher. I consider myself your peer, and I would love to hear your feedback on my first personal exploration piece.


I'm the editor-in-chief of I'm a designer and developer by day, and a writer and musician when the feeling strikes. I enjoy vintage advertisements and puzzles with an absurd amount of pieces. Follow me on Twitter.
