Here are just a few of the examples of designs I created. My art show marketing postcards, my banner and this adorable marketing image to share on my social media accounts. All turned out just the way I wanted them to. I wanted them to be both colorful and humorous. I think they are just a perfect fit for my show called "I Dare You Not to Smile".
The past 9 months has been amazing since I am pretty much able to create so many things. Photoshop has taken my artwork to a whole new level Now let me remind you, that I have had no formal training in either art or graphics so everything you see here is created from basically my gut feelings and my creative eye. Both have betrayed me!

One of my favorite marketing themes as of late, is to use images of members of my family and add them into different funny settings that then advertise the gallery. Here are just a few of social media marketing images I created for the Art House LV Gallery.

At that moment, I felt as if my whole world had changed. I mean COMIC SANS has been my standard go to font for everything. I even have it set up as my default font for my emails. How could I not know this? I'm just now learning that it is right up there with the font Papyrus. Yes, I did watch the SNL skit regarding the Papyrus font being used on Avatar. I think the humor was lost on me at that moment.
I came home from the gallery and in a moment of weakness I posted my misery for all my Facebook Friends to read. That is when I received my enlightening to the errors of my ways. These friends held nothing back.
If you think you might like my art, please check out my website gallery and please don't tell me if it is also in COMIC SANS font because I haven't checked there yet.
FACEBOOK DISCUSSION THE OTHER NIGHT REGARDING COMIC SANS FONT:
ME: I'm just a bit upset right now. I was just informed that graphically speaking, Comic Sans as a font is just a bad choice. That is like my go to font. Now I have to rethink everything.
