Nursery Prints

I was recently asked to design two prints for a lady at work. She is having a baby in October and she wanted to decorate her nursery in a pond theme so she wouldn't have to pick just turtles or ducks or frogs but use all of them. She looked for children themed pond scene prints to hang up in the nursery to help tie her other decor together but couldn't find anything she liked.

So she enlisted me and after asking her what kinds of animals she wanted in the prints, I drew up some sketches which she approved of. I decided to execute them using Adobe Illustrator CS4, hoping to get some more practice in with using Illustrator.

She was extremely pleased with the result, which made me pleased as well.

Enjoy your day!

Adventures in VECTOR-LAND!

Another sketch turned into vector . . . I'm kind of on a mythical creature kick. ^_^ It still needs tweaking I think, but I have time to come back to it later.

From my Children's class

11x17" done in watercolor, ink, and Photoshop

In all the crazy rush of things at the end of my CCAD career, I forgot to share with you one of my projects. For my Children's Illustration Market class, we had to write and illustrate our own children's book.

I wrote a story about a little girl and a raincloud befriending one another. I find it to be a little cheesy, but I enjoyed illustrating some of the scenes. ^_^

. . . yeah . . . . . so . . .

just a doodle I did in my sketchbook that I brought into Illustrator CS4 to VECTORIZE IT!

School is over. Four years of school. OVER.

Anyhow, towards the end of our school career, I and my classmates had to make business cards to promote ourselves and some mailers of our art work. We were all trading with one another, it kind of reminded me of Pokemon cards.

Here are a few of the business cards I collected from my peers.

These are some of the mailers/samples I was able to collect.

and one of them I framed. ^_^

and this is a doodle I did, to celebrate the end of my college career.

It was fun, I really enjoyed all of the talented people I was able to meet while going to CCAD. I can't wait to see their stuff out in the world. ^_^

For my Humorous Illustration class, we had to design some spot illustrations. There weren't specific guidelines for content, so here's what I came up with.

Playing in the Rain

(does that girl look familiar at all? ^_^)

An Undersea Tea

(I wish I had been invited to that tea party)

There aren't many days of school left . . . . AH!

Good luck everybody and have a WONDERFUL rest of the week!

OKAY! so I updated my bookmarks from earlier (MY LAST ASSIGNMENT FOR PROF. PRACTICES!) and this is how they stand now. ^_^
I added a background and played a bit with the layout, and I redrew the cat and rabbit.

3D Illustrations? DONE!

So, I signed up for a 3D illustration class for my LAST semester at CCAD. The requirements were to do three pieces, so I decided to turn my three letters into sculptures. I already did the letter Nn (see HERE), so I decided to do the letters Hh and Rr this weekend.

And here they are (sorry, no process pics on these two):

All together now:

Alice and Me!

My new business cards came in today. Here's the front, not much changed I just added my blogspot address (since my blog is more fun then my website ^_^).
AND ON THE BACK . . . . . . . . .

TA-DA! now I have 250 duplicates of myself! MWAHAHAHAHA! ^_^

On another note, I have started to work on my LAST assignment for my Professional Practices class. I decided to do four bookmarks of four different characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Now note, these ARE IN PROGRESS. I realize some tweaking needs to be done, especially in the layout of them. ^_^ (my favorites are the hatter and the rabbit)

Good-bye! Enjoy your day!

WOW! It's been like TWO WEEKS, since I posted. Can I blame that on being busy? Yes? Ok then, I was busy. There are now like four weeks to the END OF SCHOOL ( as I know it), and less then two until Directions. Directions is this reverse career fair thing that CCAD holds for their seniors majoring in Illustration, Ad Graph, and Fashion. Professionals (and possibly potential employers) come to our school to check out our portfolios. Every student gets a table to set up their portfolio, business cards, and some little gift for the professionals to take with them so they can remember our name, style, and contact us (if they wish). So, I've been at work, desigining and ordering stuff. So I thought I'd show you some proof of my business.
This is my business card.

(I've tweaked this one and now waiting for the new ones to come in)

These are my postcards, those things for the professionals to take with them.

Please forgive the horrible pictures, I did this pretty quick.

Alright, hopefully I'll show you some new stuff soonish.

For all my God-fearing, God-loving brothers and sisters in Christ, please pray for me that I'll be able to get ALL the things done I need to (and want to) for Directions. And please pray for all my classmates; the school year is getting shorter and the stress seems to keep building. Thanks! ^_^

Have a GREAT weekend!

Revised Letters

These are the same six letters I'm doing for my project, they've just been revamped a bit.

Check out Guin's letters here.

Have a GREAT weekend! ^_^

These were done purely for fun and because I can't draw myself enough . . .

It's ME! Waiting for a HUG!

Me Dreaming of Kitty Cats . . . . . ^_^

Both were drawn in sketchbooks, then "colored" in in Photoshop.

^_^ Have a GREAT week friends.

What do you think?

I'm desiging a logo, tell me what you think . . . about typeface and illustrations. There's a dog, horse, and cat inside the hearts, in that order.

The Letters Dd, Hh, Ll, and Rr

Here you go friends, the letter Dd, Hh, Ll, and Rr. Animals and objects done in watercolor and colored pencil, letters and background done in Photoshop. Though this time I played with the colors of my paintings and punched them up a bit using Photoshop. Tell me if you like them or if it's too much.

Deer and drum

Hummingbird and hat


Lobster and lantern


Red Panda and radio

The letter Pp and Zz needed tweaking, but they should be up on here sometime next week. ^_^

Have a GREAT weekend everybody! It's ALMOST HERE! ^_^

Oh, go check out Guin's color comps at her blogspot here. ^_^
