Well it’s been a really great year for TillDeath Creations. I’ve been able to do work for so many different clients that ended up loving their product and still use the designs to this day. From clients like Jake McLelan (Tech Minds) to a writer for a local hockey team blog (Shawn Dulin-writer, Admirals Aftermath). read more
I published my first tutorial to YouTube a few days ago and I’m already getting some hits. Not too bad. I can see this being a regular thing. The tutorial was made at the request of an up-and-coming, producer from Philadelphia, PA known as Sweekuh. I’ve got one more coming up, somewhat similar to the first read more
So I’ve managed to free up some time to devote to designing and updating the site. I fixed a few things on the site, i.e. the “Donate” button, and the homepage not loading images. I’ve also completed a few projects that I’ve had on the back-burner for awhile now. I feel so much more relieved read more
Well it’s been a really great year for TillDeath Creations. I’ve been able to do work for so many different clients that ended up loving their product and still use the designs to this day. From clients like Jake McLelan (Tech Minds) to a writer for a local hockey team blog (Shawn Dulin-writer, Admirals Aftermath). I’ve began to develop my love for music and incorporate it into the TDC name. I created a soundcloud account and began reposting only the best sounds from up-and-coming producers and have began to get a pretty good following. Speaking of following, my love of electronic dance music spread throughout Twitter, and I’ve grabbed the attention of REVOLVR, a widely known EDM producer out of Las Vegas. Music isn’t the only thing that’s been a big change for me, but my art has grabbed the attention of so many, I’ve had to turn down potential clients in order to free up some time. It’s definitely been a busy year for me.
If you’ve been a fan of TDC long enough, then you know how far I’ve come in only one year. I don’t have any screenshots from before, but even the website itself has transformed immensely since its birth earlier last year. I anticipate even more changes, to the site, as well as my production. I’ve managed to gather 200 facebook fans which is a pretty major accomplishment for me and I hope to double or even quadruple that by 2014. With that being said, I hope you all have/had a very happy new year. I hope to hear from all of you in the next year!

The tutorial was made at the request of an up-and-coming, producer from Philadelphia, PA known as Sweekuh. I’ve got one more coming up, somewhat similar to the first one as well. I encourage you all to get out there and find some examples of what you want to learn how to do. And I will do my best to make a tutorial just for you! Anyways, watch the first tutorial right here!

Thank you!
Alright! I’m super excited to announce this to all of you. I HAVE MADE NEW LOGO’S. Yes, plural Logo”s”. I had two ideas in my head and since time allotted, I decided to go at it. I had a really good turnout for my first live stream and I’d like to thank everyone who tuned in. That was so cool. Already got some great feedback and (heh) new requests. I can’t wait to get things going now that I have my own personal brand. Next step is going to be registering the branding/logos.
Ok. Now on to the most important matter…..which logo should I feature on this website, in the header? Only you decide!! I will open the polls on facebook (starting today) and here and close the voting at the end of the week. Thanks for your votes, participation, comments, feedback, bread, lunch money, grandparents teeth, etc…
To vote here, just leave “1″ or “2″ in the comments, or go to the Facebook Page and vote there. Thanks!
I’m going to be designing my permanant logo/ brand tonight, live on Ustream! I sort-of can’t wait. I’m kinda wingin’ it, but oh well. We’ll see what happens. I have two ideas so far for the layout. Who knows, maybe I’ll combine them. This will be my first time streaming live for….anything so hopefully it goes well. I’m going to be showcasing Adobe CS6, since my school just sent me the upgrade key (yay college!). I’ll also be recording the whole thing and I’ll post it in here afterwards, so everyone can skip through it. I forsee this taking awhile so I don’t expecct everyone to stick around the whole time, but I’d like to thank anyone in advance for stopping in. Also, I’ll be answering any questions and talking in chat. To sum up whats going on:
1. I’ll be making my logo live
2. Showcasing Adobe CS6
3. Recording the stream and posting the link
4. Talking/Q&A in chat

So in my last entry, I had mentioned doing a few things for a few producers. Prison Mike and Tech Minds being a couple. This week has been an extremely busy one getting some stuff done, as I had also mentioned. Finally, I have something to show for it. I’m happy to announce the release of Prison Mike’s new album “Drop the Bass, Not the Soap“. Give this album a listen and let him know what you think!
Also, In other news, I’ve also finished some artwork for Tech Minds. Heres a couple pieces of candy to make your mouth water.
I’m actually pretty excited for this coming week. Aside from my final Illustrator project for awhile, I’ll be working on banners, logos, and artwork for some pretty cool DJ’s. The Mu, Tech Minds, DJ Ego, Frank Carmine, and Prison Mike are all getting the Deadliest graphics from TDC. Although I can’t say what exactly each is getting as it would ruin the surprise, I can tell you I have some pretty impressive things planned. Plus with what I’ve been learning at FullSail University [silly plug ], they may even turn out better than I expect. More plugs to come in this post, I promise. My goal starting out with these designs is to attract enough viewers to get more and more people to request art and eventually build up my reputation through doing free work for clients who have great potential to gain publicity. Soon I will also start reaching out to other blogs to try and promote the site and gain more viewers. Everyone’s been getting interested in my work and that’s the best reaction I could have hoped for.
The mentioned DJ’s and more (including me!) can all be seen at Turntable.fm. Please go check them out on their other sites as well:
So yesterday I was working on one of my school projects, which was to create a concert flyer in Adobe Illustrator. I worked on it for probably about 5 hours and was almost finished. I went to use the blend tool (to blend to shapes together) and Illustrator couldn’t handle it. The damn program crashed, putting the whole previous 5 hours of hard work to waste. I was so irritated. I still am. I wrote to Adobe via the feedback/add a feature contact form on their support site telling them to add an autosave feature to their programs. Why the hell would this not already be a feature for such an expensive and professional program? Microsoft Office has this and just about everyone has MS Office. Even the free versions. A simple script added to the software to allow the programs to autosave after 10 min of activity should be simple enough. Ahh well, it was mostly my fault. After all, I didn’t save. But can you blame me? If you’ve ever worked in any Adobe program, you could agree that it’s easy to get sucked into what you are doing and forget to save. I suppose I should get started…..again.
