You are not going to miss Kontrast 2012, the science fiction and fantasy congress that will take place October 5-7 in hotel Gillet in Uppsala, are you? :dragon:

I got the great pleasure of designing a graphic profile for Kontrast. All in all it became two logotypes. One a little bit more formal and another one space inspired that hopefully will end up on t-shirts and other things.
The website is a thorough revamp of the WP theme Coraline.
I’ll show more design for Kontrast 2012 in the future. :nod:

If I’m going there myself? Hmm, probably. I haven’t decided yet, but my fingers are itching. IF I’m going Kontrast has to expect that I will drag along a fat suitcase with costumes. Congress/convent = a fully legal opportunity to play dress up in my world! 8)

InspireaThis is a WordPress site I’ve designed for Inger Nilsson-Välimaa and her site Inspirea.info.
The thought was to convey a sense of peace and freedom. Inger had very specific requests about the forget-me-nots and seagull. The result is what you see here. :)

Ongoing right now: Order tickets for Uddevalla konståkningsförening’s ice show through SilverSerpent.net!
The order system, designed and coded by me, has been out for a while and the show is soon due so it is about time I told you about it here.
Get your tickets before the run out! Last year’s show was spectacular! ;)

You can also order tickets to the premier league finals in figure skating here.

Animals

The post that should have been “More autumn – Part 2” became a post with an animal theme instead. Here is a mix of what runs, crawls and flies around my home. ;)

I chased the blackbird with the camera for days before I got a good shot. It’s a very shy bird and I tried to catch one (not sure if it’s the same bird) on camera with the red berries already last year and failed. But not this time! :go:

The cats tagged along this time too (because they are too lovely to not take pictures of). :pet:
The picture of Gizmo is the first one I’ve uploaded that is shot inside the house in the photo category. It’s always harder to get a nice picture of Gizmo than the other two. He is the clown in the group and he feels much more at ease fooling around than posing before the camera. :gig:

The little grass snake has to be mentioned too because it’s a bit exotic. It’s very seldom that I find snakes around the house. Poisonous or not – I can tell you that the pulse picks up speed when a snake hisses at you, even if it’s a small snake. :phew:

My “Skyscapes” are starting to become a small series of images. Lovely sunsets are like nature’s own firework. So exciting to watch. :wow:

This time of year a lot of autumn photos of colorful leaves pour out on the Internet kind of like images of flowering cherry trees flow out of Japan in the spring. Therefor I thought I woudln’t upload any colorful trees (eventhough a red leaf snuck into the bunch), but shar some other things that are also part of autumn. :fairy:

I love autumn! The colours are the best thing I know this time of year and there’s also Halloween on the way. Lovely times! :pumpkin:

To celebrate the coming of autumn I finally have a new picture to show you. It’s probably over a year since I last felt the urge to do something like it, which can be blamed on uneasiness and lack of artistic inspiration, among other things, but now, would you believe it; I finally managed to create something new.
And then you have the right to feel pretty good about yourself, right? It’s nice when the old spirit starts to find its way back. :nod:

Nature lives in my camera

A batch of photos today! Some of them are even fresh for the day. ;)
If someone out there doesn’t like pictures of nature and cats then that person is following the wrong blog. :gig:

New logotype

For those of you who don’t know it yet I can tell you that SilverSerpent.net is a business nowadays. It will be cause for some changes around here on the site. Among other things there’s a new title page to be made for www.silverserpent.net (the old one has been around since 2005) and a pricelist for commissions will soon be up alongside the new contact form. :)

For starters I present my new logotype. This is the second version, actually. The first one I made was a bit anonymous because I didn’t want it to be too eye-catching. But then I thought – what the heck! Anonymous is so not me. I’m not a plain person who makes plain designs and therefore my logotype shouldn’t be plain either. So I gave it more attitude and now I really like it. With tongue and all. ;)
