I have been involved with the Terminal City Rollergirls for a few years now, and one of the first things I ever did with the league was to design a series of graphics to explain roller derby to the unfamiliar. Not really knowing anything about graphic design, I had and idea that I threw together with Adobe Illustrator, and I think the result was fantastic. Several years down the road, I think the rules explanations themselves could use an update, but I'm still proud of the images.
My graphics are also being used on Rollergirl.ca, and are now going to be included in a roller derby-themed kids colouring/activity book! I can't wait to see what the finished product looks like!
Also, I just found out that Baad Anna's is having a charity knit-a-thon this Sunday. Anyone who brings in a donation of canned food or ca$h for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre in between now and then gets 10% off at the store that day. Done! They are also taking yarn donations for the knitting, and I know I have a few skeins of leftover that would be totally usable for scarves and hats. Also, anyone can join in the knitting on Sunday. I am so there!!
