From a series of webisodes for my graduating classes design show.

Poster for a local Pipa (pronounced pee-pa, sort of like a Chinese banjo) music recital. It was a smaller job, but that doesn’t mean that I skimped on the process end, all in all I made at least seven revised roughs of three designs with three final versions for the client to choose from. next up, designing myself some invoice forms, handwriting them in my sketchbook will no longer do…

This is an illustration I recently completed for a local realtor. He had seen one of my sketches posted at my work and thought it would be an interesting and original way for him to market himself using my illustrative style. The process was really interesting, I worked through about three illustrations to get to this one, the first was a 1930’s style cartoon illustration inspired by the work of American animator Max Fliescher, the second was much more in my standard illustrative style, but done without any photo reference except for the face. The cartoon-y one ended up being too cartoon-y and the second one was ok, but I still need more practice drawing clothing without photo reference… so I went back to the drawing board (literally) and keeping the illustration of the face, assembled the body from a variety of different photo references. It was a bit of a Frankenstein approach, but it ended up producing the best result! All in all, this was a really great experience! I got to put my client/designer relationship skills to good use, and I reenforced my skills in working through the creative design process!
