Lately I have started to draw more since I got an iPad Pro. Having the iPad makes it easier for me since I don't need to sharpen pencils and I can use multiple layers without needing tracing paper. Growing up, I would draw every day after school. Once I got to college, I focused more on design work and neglected drawing until I no longer had the time or motivation. Now, I am getting back to my roots and putting my focus back on trying to push my skills. It has been a good feeling to see the the progress that I have made with each new illustration that I do. I have focused on people, as I have always been intimidated by creating a likeness of someone.
I recently watched the movie INTERSTELLAR, from Christopher Nolan. I really love anything that has to do with space and I was instantly inspired after the movie. After playing around with different ideas, I decided to design a poster. I really liked the idea of the wrist watch in the movie and the use of morse code. (If you haven't seen it, it may not make as much sense) Making the poster animated was something that I felt added more to the concept.
Typeface I created called Reticulum. I am now working on a type specimen for it
This past weekend I participated in a 48 Hour Repack Competition. Designed the graphics and look of a matchbox. I was the Graphic Designer, Matt Culbertson was the 3D modeler and animator, and Jay Miles provided help with research.
My first printmaking assignment is to make a screen print using architecture from Jarvis or the new MSC building on campus. We are allowed to manipulate the photos as much as we wish. Here is my design, incorporating a gauge from pipes, a turn wheel and other textures. I wonder how it is going to print?
Here is a current project I am working on in my Typographic Design class. Redesigning the novella Heart of Darkness. Here is the first chapter opener. With the Villard's Diagram overlayed to properly divide out the page layout. Can't wait to get to the cover!
Over winter break I had some time to work on some personal projects. One of the projects I worked on is this digital painting of Avril Lavigne I did on photoshop. This was my first attempt at a photoshop digital painting, and I just finished it about a day ago. I am quite happy with how it turned out. I have to remind myself that it was my first attempt and could always do better with more practice. What do you think?
Hey there, welcome to my blog. I am going to try posting some work I work on when not doing school projects. I am not sure how long this will last or how long it will take for a new post, as I can get busy. Here we go!
