Participated in a co-ed adult flag football league these past 7 weeks and decided to make a logo for our team during a rainy night. Our team name was originally House Calls and evolved into House Work mid season. It was a challenge to create an anthropomorphized House character to incorporate into the logo but I had fun doing it.
Valentines Card challenge with the co-workers. We each wrote 3 random themes on paper and then pulled one theme from a bucket. We then had a couple of weeks to come up with a card or cards to distribute between co workers that we came up with using our picked theme. The theme I got was Game Of Thrones. I chose to use one of my favorite characters from the series: Ygritte. She uses a bow and arrows and so super imposing her as a Valentines cherub was the direction I went with.
I left the bottom scroll blank to freely input names of recipients.
I've been in a creative funk these past few months. I've finally adjusted to the work schedule and have implemented some changes to my diet and exercise routine. I recognize that I do have waves of creative endeavors throughout the year and am working on making them more frequent.
Here is a piece that was originally rough submission for a potential mural. I then decided to see it through digitally. It is a study of the color wheel. The paradoxical triangle in the background consists of primary color gradations while the fills of the letters consist of secondary and tertiary color variants. The word itself is a visual reminder to proactively CREATE.
Was challenged to come up with a "cute" ape for work. Cute is not a strong point of mine yet but I am working on it. I came up with these guys and decided to use them for vector practice.
I vividly remember being introduced to Marvel trading cards from a soccer team mate while hanging out in a parking lot. It was the early 90's and a pretty good high for the comic industry. I would go to the local sports card shop (they used to have dedicated stores that only sold sports cards back then) and buy packs and packs of the Marvel Universe series 3 cards. I remember liking this series in particular over the previous two series for overall visual appeal. Now I realize the categorization of the super heroes to villains, to team ups and battles is very comprehensive. The power levels on the back were more easily readable as an info graphic over the other series and as a whole the abstract painted backgrounds just resonated more with me at the time. I would trade with friends and eventually collected the whole 200 card set including the 5 holograms. I would spent so much time going through them reading the origin stories and power levels of all the characters.
I decided to make my own card using the Marvel 3 cards as a reference. I illustrated a dynamic character with the Stark tower in the background. The logo is replaced with my own and is strategically placed there so I can input any company's logo in which I am applying for. The power levels are replaced with industry related skill sets along with a short personal blurb. It was all built in illustrator and it was a blast creating and assembling them.
