  • Greetings from Milwaukee

    Greetings one and all. My name is Everardo, and I'm an airbrush artist (motorcycles, helmets, etc.) from Milwaukee, but I also take on graphic design projects from time to time. Mostly business card and t-shirt designs. I think this site is great and I especially appreciate the brutal honesty of the membership when it comes to comments and critique. I've already learned alot just browsing the different posts. I'm not gonna knock any of the airbrush boards in particular, but more often than not even mediocre work wins the praises of the members on those boards. This makes it a little intimidating to post, especially considering that I have no formal training in graphic design. I've been teaching myself (through books, magazines, online tutorials, etc) photoshop since version 6, and Illustrator since CS2. I've used corel since my days as a newspaper editor in college way back in the early nineties. Art aside, I enjoy spending time with family, going on motorcycle rides, playing pool, hunting, fishing and watching movies. Well, that's me in a nutshell. Ciao!

    I think we'd all love to see some of your airbrush work. Do you have any you can share? And you're welcome.

      I should've included a link to my website. Here it is. I'm still working on the galleries. I used Photoshop's automated gallery feature to create the tables and then manually changed all the thumbnail links that lead to seprate html pages and directed them instead to the images themselves. It makes for better navigation and less clutter.It's taking me while to get to them all. I created the site in dreamweaver 4. Which I'm still using and trying to learn after all these years. I've had it since '00 I think.

            Very cool stuff. Airbrush always looks awesome. I don't remember ever seeing bad airbrushing.

                      Welcome to the board gca.
                      Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

                        I had that coming. I deserve that. I normally don't read them and when I do I normally am being sarcastic to the ones I do pop into.

                            Everardo! What a cool name? Where does it come from?

                            I've always wanted to have a play with an airbrush but was too discouraged by the amazing airbrush art that I could never live up to.
                            It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                                I'm guessing that renting a party girl means exactly what one might suspect.

                                As for the logo, it looks like a peel-off sticker of some kind. The type is mathematically centered, but visually...

                                We'll see what happens I guess.

                                What do you mean by ''gig design''?

                                As for the thing itself, I might put Perth on its own line under Party Girls. The whole thing kind of gives a mixed message. Is it a modeling agency? Is...

                                Is this forum migrating to the new or going away and starting over?
