Takin’ out the trash

Not every design works. Sometimes, a design will just come together in a few minutes. And then there are times when I slave over a design for hours, and still never get something I feel is good enough to post (and sometimes I look back on designs I’ve posted and wonder, “What was I thinking?”). Here are a few cards that have never been posted before. They’ve been in my folder for a long time, but I’m not a big fan of ’em, for whatever reason.

If you see any of these that you like, please let me know. I’m always interested in what people think of my designs.

Taking out the trash

The 1919 Project ends tomorrow with Game 8. With that post, all of the cards for the 1919 Reds will have been posted. The only problem with this series of posts is that I’ve been creating a ton of new custom designs and alternate cards that I haven’t been able to post yet.

Along with all of the new designs I’ve created recently, I’ve also created quite a few that, for one reason or another, just didn’t make the cut. For some, I decided to use the photos elsewhere. For others, I decided to use different players who were actually playing at that time. Others just…didn’t work.

I’ve decided to post all of those rejected designs here in one big gallery. You might be seeing some of these pics in future posts, and you’ll definitely be seeing some of these templates used in the future.
