My name is Scott (better known as Norebbo) and I am a self-employed illustrator located in southern California. I juggle a lot of projects in my day to day routine, often generating concept after concept until the client is satisfied.
But even after a project reaches the point of design perfection, there’s no guarantee that it will live to see the light of day.
Budget cuts, corporate reorganization…or even a simple change of plans are typical things that can send a lot of otherwise great illustrations straight into the trash. So what happens to all that work? There’s gotta be a use for that stuff somewhere!
TrashedGraphics is my attempt to save some of that work and make it available to the UI designers (and other visual designers) that I work with.
I am often asked to provide common elements and parts from “dead projects” that they can insert into their own wireframes and loose mockups, and I have always been happy to comply.
Unfortunately, I never had an organized way to showcase and distribute all those assets. A highly organized blog that I could update on a regular basis seemed like the obvious choice, and trashedgraphics.com was born…
