Guitar Strap Esta Terminado!

I finished hand weaving my guitar strap, with nothing but my fingers! No loom, just a stick, which you hang from a height, or in my case, another stick which you jam under the base of your bed. 

It is using the design of the arrowhead sash that the people of Assumption in Canada used to make. 
Being part Canadian, and working at a Canadian muffin company, I felt it was a good choice.

The big ones that the women used to make for the men to portage equipment and trade goods with, used to take over 600 hours to make.
I lost count on how many hours this took me, but I doubt it was that long. Thankfully mine is thinner and shorter than the traditional belts.

Now just to get the guitar to go with it!

Permaculture For Peace

And back into the fray with a good dose of graphic design

I've been working away this past week on a logo design for an awesome project in Ghana called Permaculture for Peace run by Transcend International Ghana. They're planting food forests using permaculture methods to try and stabilize the economy somewhat, provide food locally and re-green places that have been deforested to sell the wood. A wonderful bunch of people and a great project, I'm proud to say that I've played my little part in it.

So, from sketches-








Then to Adobe Illustrator



To the final product!
