Would anyone mind...

Post by Rhapsody on Sun Jan 31, 2010 2:48 pm

Hi guys!

For any of you that I have made sigs for, would you mind if I used them as examples of my work on a website I am making to advertise my artistic talents? I want to showcase my signature banners in particular so it'd be great if you are happy with me using them on there. I don't know if I'll drum up a bit of business doing this kind of thing for other forums but it'd be nice to try and earn a few bob as well as having the satisfaction of producing something that looks snazzy!

Hoping you guys will say yay or nay even tho we seem to be a bit dead in the last few days. Has everyone gone and killed themselves riding on ice?

Thanks Lissee! Much appreciated! Very Happy

Yeah, he is probably perving over a Citroen Saxo as we speak! Sad

Makes me glad I left biking till my early midlife crisis so I can truely appreciate it for what it is. If I was a teenager relying on it as my only source of transport through wind rain and snow, and having to lug all my gear round when I got where I was going maybe I wouldn't like it so much. Much more fun when its a luxury rather than a necessity!

yeah I think ur right, u always want what u cant get too, if u have been counting the months days and hours till ur birthday so u can drive it would seem pretty amazing.

I feel exatly like u about the bike compared to the car , but as we have been driving a car for years the intial excitment has long worn off and the thrills of the bike are there for the taking now,

he escaped from hospital last week in his dressing gown , got a taxi home , he has needed 24 hour care as he is like a space cadet with all the meds hes on,.

His spleen should be ok now but the rest of his body and mind have a bit of catching up to do

He is a nightmare patient too .He is the typical old grumpy man in comedy sketches lol,

I'm very relieved to hear he has made enough progress to be sent home. Will he be able to reduce the dosage of the drugs over time and end up less spaced out?

If he's a grumpy patient then you have to find something to distract him and pacify him. How about old Fred Dibnah videos to calm him down? Smile

He wasnt well enough to be let out lol, they didnt even know he was gone when i phoned up to see how come he had been let out without anyone contacting me,

Yeah the meds are being reduced and it is making some difference.

Dvds are his main souce of intetainment at the moment, that is until he throws the tv out the window cause he gets so mixed up and cant use it,

He keeps thinking his mobile phone is broke too cause he cant use it propely. must be very fustrating for him,

Hey Rhapsody - good luck with that! Sounds like fun designing and work etc.

Must be hard working in the graphics industry?

Good move Craig....it's tough!

My mate who you sent the guy to fiddle with his website tells me about it.
Brainless activity behind a computer Sad

I'd still like to run my own business one day. A cafe sounds great; or a deli. Something which requires people to eat. Those kind of stable bread and butter things always need people. Admittedly, it's not exactly fancy running a cafe compared to say, being a brain surgeon. But at least breakfast tastes better when you don't pay in your own cafe Smile

Thanks Blue!

I'm not in the graphics industry full time. I did web graphics for a living for a short while, and also worked in the animation industry but Repetative Strain Industry killed my career for me. So now I am seeing if I can earn myself a few quid for my love of making sigs as a hobby. I won't have many costs to start a website (prolly just domain name) and I'll see if anyone that visits feels like paying £20 for a good looking sig, rather than one of these poorly cobbled together home made jobs. I'm in the research phase of writing my copy atm. Seeing if I need to use particular phrases to get search engine hits, stuff like that. Smile

Wow - sorry to hear the RSI thing got you. I'm not surprised though - I get heat or electromagnetic waves from using my Macbook when its hot and my hands start to feel weird. It's not like that when I use a separate keyboard.

Do you have a website show casing your work then?

Making sigs and banners would be a good way to go - but also, copyright them as originals so that you corner the market Wink

I use my bike in all weather and loved it for going on 8years now. Im the oppiste, i want to pass my car test just so its done. Cars are way to dear to even run, fuel, tax, mot and the insurance. Dont forget you women have cheaper insurance, even know a lad whos passed is car test at 17 but never owned one just on a dt125 for few years now because he cant afford insurance.

Cars only have one thing over a bike is fitting more stuff in and thats it, on the road the bike wins hands down in any weather, even snow if you have a crosser. Best bit is at college, im the last one to leave but some go my way and i over take them and will be home miles before them lol.

I maintain my bike myself so its cheap as fuck to run the bike for me, if i pass my test this year which i hope to i will probs get a car in my thirtys. Way i see it is im young, make the most of it, you only have one life, sod the fuking weather, waterproofs were made for a reason and there fukin hot as fuck.

Oh and yes you can use the sig lol
