Learning Curve

As a bit of an intro to the company, New Boss gave me some notes on a full-page ad that either they just did or they are about to do. Said to take the weekend and see what I can come up with. Now, I could go over-the-top creative, but I know that one of the main things he needs right now is someone that can recreate things to spec, so I chose to go a little more conservatively in my layout, following his (hard-to-read) specs. This feels more like a time for precision, not art.

Took a little longer than I wanted, but I haven't done this kind of thing in a long time, I'm still using a VERY old copy of Photoshop, and I'm still working on this crappy old computer. I feel pretty good about it, and it gives me a benchmark on where my speed and skill levels are. That all being said, I see that I'm still my own worst critic, and am not truly satisfied with it, but I'm-a go with it anyway.

Biggest hope right now is that this all works out, and I'll have the money to get a new machine in the near future. This beast is the box i had built back in 2007, it's still running WinXP, and it's been dying a slow death for a few years now. Just have no money to upgrade.
