Today marks 1 month doing the #100daychallenge for these #UI Designs. The challenge today was to #design a pricing list. I created a menu price list for a #BBQ Joint. Let me know if you like it by hitting me up with comments/likes/feedback.
Created in #Figma
Here it is a wee bit closer
I am still plugging away at these designs. I am determined to improve my UI knowledge and skills. The above design challenge is my day 22. The challenge was to design something “search” related. Other than that it is pretty open-ended.
Figma has been a great tool to learn these design skills with. I love that it is free and open source. Falls in line with my philosophy of ethics and community.
I have begun courses on Coursera in UI design. So far, I am learning good stuff. I now understand how to work on “a project” well, I am in the middle of creating my first project. But, that’s leaps ahead of a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea what a project entailed in the UI world.
So there you go, you know what you know! Right?
Here is the link to my Artshop where you can select one of these two original pieces to add to your decor.
But please feel free to shop around for some other great framed art, canvases, and select cool products. All of the work is original, designed and created by me from either paintings or pastels.
Doing the #DailyUI Design Challenge to make myself a better designer and to learn Figma is proving a good exercise in consistency and committment.
I am learning and improving in a short time, in my knowledge and understanding of UI Design, and Design in general. It is really a matter of learning these new tools, such as the Figma platform and digital tools, instead of paint brushes and pencils.
Of course I am still a beginner with so much to learn. Taking some online courses and tutorials helps too. But, doing 100 days of design challenges is an excellent practice tool.
In this challenge I designed a Social share page for a music App. I designed it specifically for the iPhone 8.
Hope you like it!
Feedback is desired, so please hit me up with your comments!
On my Journey to learn and transition into UI design from Fine Arts, I’ve taken on the #Dailyui 100 day design challenge.
This is my Day 007 design.
I am simultaneously learning Figma to create these designs. Above is a screen shot of a SETTINGS page, I created in the Figma platform, of a fictional Dog Walking/Companion website.
Here it is in its IphoneX container.
What do you think?
Drop comments and feedback below.
I am excited to participate in the #dailyui design challenge. This design is my Day 2 of the challenge. The task was to create a credit card checkout form. I’ve chosen to create a checkout form for an Olympus camera, from an online photography re-sell site. I am also learning Figma, a great intuitive, somewhat new, collaborative and Web-based platform, which I’ve used to design this checkout form.
Recently I’ve decided to pursue and transition into learning UI/UX Design (User interface/User experience Design) from a traditional fine art background. I find the field a perfect blending of my Fine Arts, Art Therapy/Psychology and Social Justice/Democracy backgrounds and passions.
I’ve chosen to self-educate with online courses, tutorials and networking/meetups in the industry. So far, after 1 month in, I feel super excited with everything I am learning, and I’ve already attended my first Design Meetup. UI/UX Design feels like the perfect next step in my career!
Please hit me with your critiques/feedback on my design as it really helps with progress!
A quad layout of Florida Palm trees in bright colors. 3 of these are outside of my door and 1 is from my imagination. These are Oil Pastels on watercolor paper. My original artwork has taken on the vibrancy of the natural landscape, as well as the many manicured properties that dot the landscape of, the Nature Coast, of Southwest Florida.
the man down the alley and across the street
is my guard, my night owl who beckons the night.
a lamp-post squared and watching; the neighborhood.
his cigarette glows, he puffs
with nary a ruffle of his body he sits; perched
in the early pitch of morn’
as i walk khalil, my fearful chocolate lab
past the obelisk monuments
of beeswax neighbors
sleeping with solid vacancy.
they are resting now
while the streets hum quietly, expecting their return.
a distant lowing bark muffles the gray black dawn
my heart races, moves me along my routine path
allowing khalil to sniff briefly
at the sleeping earth’s musk
marking his scent upon its’ dew.
and as the sun’s messengers begin to call
i retreat. while suddenly, silently, one by one
they awake and attack daybreak.
This is an ArtDesign abstraction of my original mixed media piece below. It is created in the instagram layout app.
Love is to the spirit
what a moon beam is to the night
A smile so bright
darkness hides under a rock
defeated by the brilliance
of the white-hot light
dancing on the stars
staying awake all night
to the corners of the earth
escaping the wrath
of its’ competitors heart
Love is to the spirit
what a moon beam is to the night
reflections of galaxies
upon the oceans bright
mirrors of adoration
adorning faces despite
the darkness that challenges
loves white-hot light.

The smell of trees. We’ve spoken about Agastya before, in this post – A new haircut. This poem is based on a very particular line that I wrote for him in that post. I hope you enjoy this! Do comment, a lot. Literally. “He missed his people and the way they smelled like different kinds…
I love people who lead their life from their heart. I try, well really, I feel at my best when I listen to my heart and lead a life from a place of love. I think we all come into this life feeling our way with our heart, for the most part. Don’t you? I mean, yes, it’s true some lead more with their brains and all of that good stuff, but… don’t you FEEL better when you live a heart-felt life?
I create art from the heart. I know some artists whose vantage point begins from the objectivity of their minds. If I really dissected it, I believe you cannot separate your mind from your heart, and the sweet-spot is teetering, somewhere right in the middle! Teetering on that high you achieve when you are living a balanced existence, in the moment, in the flow, that sweet dance between your heart and mind, working simultaneously, creating the flow that we all strive for as artists.
My Oil painting “Heart” above came from a process of feeling the flow, extemporaneously and impulsively. I typically begin a painting by haphazardly throwing caution to the wind and lobbing some paint onto my canvas, pushing it around until I see color, shape or form that peaks my interest. I work spontaneous and for the most part, fast.
I took a couple of my oil paintings, Heart and Forest, and merged them into an “ArtDesign” in the layout App from Instagram. I feel making art and writing has a way of keeping me in constant re-invention or re-vision. It pleases my need to satiate my excessive and constant desire for stimulation of the mind. I love the journey, the adventure, the discovery. Ultimately it’s the process I am hooked on. I’m sure many of you can relate.
I love when I work in oil paints. I love the viscous thick feeling of oil paint. It feels alive and it responds in a physical, almost alive manner, or – to my physicality the best. However, it can become challenging to wait for it to dry. So, for this I like to switch between both Oils and Acrylics. The quick drying time of acrylic allows for my fast spontaneous art and the more physical and demanding nature of oils satisfies the need for a longer adventure. Similar to short content verses long form content in writing.
We need both experiences from time to time. At least I do to feel balanced and whole.

I Love great Food as you can see from one of my blog categories. I especially appreciate the history, culture and diversity of world cuisine, great food photography, food science etc.. This blog happened onto one of my food posts and I’m glad they did. What a fantastic blog! Give it a look.
The word Istria may sound rather exotic to some, it surely did to me. Other than the vague idea that the place is somewhere in Croatia (as I was told), I knew close to nothing about it. And yet, we decided to jump at the opportunity, and move there – because why the hell not. And glad we did, I can tell you that much.
I like to think of Istria as an olive country: from whatever point you choose to look, you will probably see an olive grove, or an olive tree at least. A village, town square, seafront alley, parking lot perhaps – the olive trees are everywhere, somehow highlighting (if not stating boldly) the identity of the region. A region where life without the olive oil would be, well, unimaginable.
Coming from Poland, I grew up with butter, lard and other (mostly animal) fats, with…

I am reblogging some of my earlier food posts.This is a fantastic roasted chicken recipe. When I originally wrote this post my wife, was my fiance’!
This is one pretty Bird! My fiancée’ has perfected the art of roasting chickens. We found this great recipe (and we have tried it twice thus far) in my Bon Appetit magazine. I will post the recipe at the end of this blog post.
Mmmmmm….mmmm, they are a great looking pair of legs.
Hey, hey no picking!
Sweet Plum Tomatoes, to make us a nice salad.
Crisp and fresh!
I whipped up a fragrant and light ” Lime vinaigrette” to toss into our salad.
Jalapeño and scallions ready to sauté with rice, for our last side dish.
Saute scallions, the peppers, and olive oil with a fresh squeeze of lime juice toss in some white rice and season with salt and pepper.
Finger licking’ , down home, crispy and succulent roasted chicken with salad and jalapeño lime rice!
Woo! Hoo! Good Eats.

The act of making art is complicated, but I found a fantastic method to uncomplicate the process that has struck a chord within me. I follow the idea that Abraham Hicks– one of my favorite guru’s – has instilled in my brain. Go with the flow, go downstream!
Some time ago (last year) I lost my job and began this fantastic journey back to my artistic soul, for which I sputtered and spattered along with, for many a moon. After deep contemplation – as we all do when bad things happen – I made a vow to focus as an artist, solely on my artistic path. At first this was uncomplicated, I picked up my pastels and went to town. Boom! The magic happened. I was going with the flow, going downstream. Before I knew it, I went through all my art supplies and had a small fun new collection of artwork. I was back on deck, flying high on my artistic horse.
I had no more supplies and no more money. Crap. Now what, I thought. So as misery set in once again, I took to my iphone and searched. I searched and searched some more. Then I came across the Layout App from instagram in my Apple store. Simple? Yes, but, oh how the lightbulb went off in my brain!
I started playing around with this tool and creating what I call ArtDesigns, using the photo’s I had of my original paintings and pastels. I came back to my artistic flow once again, but this time it was almost too simple. This original oil pastel is called “Bowing Down to the Universe”
Of course, because it was so simple, I questioned the legitimacy of this tool. I was so snobbish with myself, I almost failed to see the sheer beauty in it. Solution! duh… and it is free, fun, easy and a whole- lot- less- messy. The clean up has always been my least favorite with painting.
I am making some interesting abstractions and designs using my original artwork as a base.
This ArtDesign is called “The Universe Hovers Above #1”, it was created in the layout App from my original acrylic painting (below). This painting was created originally from my oil pastel, which is the very first piece in this series.
The process allows my desire to work fast and clean and abstractly to flourish – with a feeling of satisfaction and an excitement to create more.
This ArtDesign is called “The Universe Hovers Above #2” and below you will see a patterned abstract – almost non-objective piece – called “The Universe Emanates”
I am satisfied with this little collection for now, however, don’t be surprised if I expand on it. That is why we are all on this beautiful planet – to expand.
