Business card design for dahling

One of the many things I did this last weekend was help design dahling's new business cards. She has been stuck on them for quite some time and I stepped up to the plate with my new Wacom tablet.

Link to the card design, slightly NSFW

Since a lot of the pictures involved her hair across the background it is damn near impossible to cut the background out without losing detail in the hair. I ended up using a diffusion cloud on a slightly transparent layer to make the shadows around her look like a part of the cloud. I filled the rest of the backround with a neutral grey so that I could erase the cloud that covered her and not have to worry about getting a light halo around her where I accidentally erased too much of the cloud.

All in all I really like the design. The use of Garamond and Palintino Linotype gave the card a classic look and having a background that is not white will make the card stand out. OvernightPrints is really great. They do a UV gloss coat for free and even with shipping it's still cheaper than VistaPrint before they even add shipping.

Funky Mix

This one has been on the back burner for ages and ages. It started off a lot more silly and when I got a couple of anchor tracks it fell into a groove. I still had to put in the Crablouse track from Lords of Acid. This remix was off the EP single and is just funky enough to qualify :)

I also like the fact that I got a track off of a porno soundtrack. Now in case you have been living in a porn free zone for the last few years you have to go and see the Fashionistas. It's even a Vegas show now! The soundtrack is great and the film is 280 minutes long, yes over four and half hours. I have it on DVD so maybe I'll have a showing soon.

oh yes, you must go out and buy Goldfrapp-Supernature, it has some really good stuff on there.

Scene Mix I (BDSM)

Thanks to zzbottom for reminding me about posting the first of the two scene mixes. The other was the SuperSex Mix. This one I made a while back for fortryll. I told my self just how fucked up of a mix could I make. I knew that she could handle it ;) This one has everything on it. Just in case you don't speak German nor Latin, the E Nomine track is about a werewolf hunting a woman in the forest. It is sung by the guy who does Al Pachino's voiceovers when they are dubbed in German.

I just couldn't resist the "Forgive her for she knows not what she does" intro to Christian Women. I even repeated it over and over at the end of the previous track.

The winner for fucked up creepy lyrics is Mesh. People Like Me With This Gun is one screwed up track ;)
