Today is finally May 31. Now, it's time to feature some awesome professional art and designs. Many people have submitted their pieces, but only few people made it. Here are some top-notch works:
On May 31, I will be featuring professional-quality art and design pieces. It can be anything--illustrations, paintings, web designs, magazine designs, logos... Anything! As long as it's professional-quality and I like it, I'll feature it on my journal.
Examples of what I'm looking for
Any graphic nude or sexual art will disqualify the artist's work from being featured.

Seriously, if you're thinking about staying home this weekend after seeing Zootopia trailers, nah, man! Don't! You got to see the movie.

How to Handle an Art/Design Critique
So, because I have nothing else to do at the moment, how do you handle a critique? At some point in the future, everyone will receive a critique on their artwork. The good news is that people who can take a critique well are the ones who make success happen. From my experience, I learned there are a few ways to prepare yourself for criticism.

I'm a Professional Graphic Designer Now!
I'm actually a professional graphic designer now. I'm pretty excited and my first two projects I made were logos. All of them were fun! Take a look at King's Yard Care and Face in Water.
