I wan't to apologize for the late update. I'm now 10 weeks away from earning my bachelors and it's been the prime focus in my life.
I have been designing in my free time, and I can't wait to go back out with my camera. I have two pretty great shots planned.
But for the pretties, that's why people come here, not my bad grammar.
I hit a hard wall with this one. I'm just shy of hating the platform on the far right. I need to figure something out but I keep drawing blanks.

Second what's really been taking up my bits of free time.
Not too long ago I picked up a Kindle Touch. If you're a reader buy one, it feels like a future book, I'm in love with mine. Anywho, like all gadget nerds I want to protect my newest toy, and after much searching and almost buying, it still doesn't have a case. Suddenly I have a genius idea and go to ETSY. I truly believe in supporting the little guy; to find an artisan in todays times of mass produced garbage is a true find. It's been a phenomenal experience so far. Designing your product from the ground up is a thrilling ride, I can't wait till it's done.
Here's the cover. I'm still tweaking the design, and the guy from ETSY was kind enough to do an early tooling for me, keep in mind the leather still needs to be dyed.

I’ve been talking to him about the inside of the cover. I’m actually really excited about this part. I’m gonna provide the script and he’s going to tool in “T. M. Riddle”. The location is still up in the air, I’m thinking behind the kindle. That way it mimics the secrecy of the Riddle journal in The Chamber of Secrets.
This is going to be great.
