Business Card Design with a Big 'A'

Not "art therapy" per se, but a mind-brain-body therapy with acrylic painting - and a first-ever attempt at a self-owned and operated business that didn't get off the ground in 2012-13, but left me with learning a bunch of interesting stuff about entrepreneurship, online studying, brain functioning and healing, the brain and learning styles, how to use acrylic paint (somewhat), how nursing homes/elderly residences work and so on. It also left me with some graphic design pieces made to promote the services that I never really started to offer...such as this business card.


What is Art Without Boundaries, you ask?


Well, it is a wonderful program that uses a unique system - MnemeTherapy ("nematherapy") - to help people with Alzheimer's disease and Autism.


MnemeTherapy® uses everyday pleasures such as singing, movement, painting and story telling in a unique combination to stimulate dramatic changes in the brain. Although the goal is to provide a rewarding experience, documented testimonies show significant improvement in some clients in verbal skills, mobility, combativeness, spatial acuity, understanding instructions (plus much more!).

 who is thewoodenboy? 


Daniel lives in the Orient with his wife and son. He's a digital artist-designer who studied Media Arts and Animation receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2002.

He spent three wonderful years teaching design courses in character art, design fundamentals, artistic drawing, creative thinking, and digital art software as a Professor of Computer Graphic Design at Chungkang College of Cultural Arts in South Korea.

These days he shares his love of creativity by merging the drawing and acting skills of animation into teaching EFL to cute Asian children.


Weaving through and around his day job is his project, Character Issues, a brand of his vision and style of character art & design - plus whatever other creative art project that comes across his desk.

Thanks for visiting!
