Drip, Drip, 2309

This was a very exciting project. Gig posters are so expressive and open that I had a great time thinking outside of the box to create something unique and intriguing. I started with allowing myself to get bored. From there I did a bunch of word association to get my...

All that shines is glitter and gold!

So I had the opportunity to design and create a photo realistic watch.    My process started with sketches. I really analysed the little things about the watch and how it casts shadows and highlights.   I studied the lighting and how light reflects on metal. I decided...

A Race Against Time

This project was quite time consuming… No pun inteded. The objective was to create a photorealistic watch based on this fossil watch that I thought looked really visually appealing. I didn’t bother counting my layers, but I would not be surprised if...

Omega: Master of the Sea

The objective for this project was a very simple one—find an image of a timepiece with moving parts, and recreate that image using only vectors in Adobe Illustrator. To select my timepiece, I turned to a favorite YouTube reviewer of mine, Nick Shabazz. Nick is a...

Patience & Time

Those are the two things that were used up most with the project, my patience & time. I knew that I wanted to do some sort of retro watch so and found this sweet old school swatch watch. Looking back now, I probably wouldn’t have done a watch with some many...

Watch the power of a vector

I chose this Nixon watch for my project because the reflection on the different faces of the glass makes an interesting effect that I wanted to follow and learn how to create in vectors. I haven’t seen any student make a watch like this in the past, so I liked the...

Bare Essentials of Indie Rock

From the beginning, I had a pretty good general idea of what I was going to do for this project. I wanted it to be about music and the lifestyle that is often associated with it. In order to flesh out the idea a little bit more, I did some “brain dump”...

Tinkering with Robots

When I first started this project, I wanted to show my whimsical creativity. When I was little, I used to draw robots a lot because they were fun. Now I’ve turned them into profession icons that still capture that whimsy. These icons are meant for the use of all...

Over the Garden Wall

This icon set is based on characters from the Cartoon Network miniseries Over the Garden Wall. All the characters in the show are very distinctive and stylized, so it seemed like the perfect candidate for this project. One concern early on was that the characters are...

It’s-a me! Minimalist Mario Icons!

As a passion project, I wanted to design something from my childhood. I remember waking up early on the weekends not to watch cartoons, but to play  Super Mario World. I would blow in the cartridge to make sure our Super Nintendo would read it correctly without...

The Beatles

The job was to design 12 different icons that were cohesive and looked like the belonged in a set. When beginning this project I struggle to come up with an initial concept that I wanted to create. I knew that I wanted to do something that I loved and that I was...

Adhesive Ideas

This was a great opportunity for me to print something I have never even thought of printing before. I am not much of a sticker person, that is, I’ve never delved into the world of stickers, collected them, or really admired them in the past. Yet that...

The Final Frontier

This is it! The last project of the semester, and I have to say, I am really pleased to see how far I’ve gotten as an artist because of this class. This class and these projects have definitely pushed me, my skills, and my creativity, and I’ve had a lot of...

“It’s alive! It’s alive!”

My stickers! They’re alive! I am so pumped about these stickers. I am printing off an entire roll of them along with my gangsta fish that I created for my t-shirt project.  To begin this process, I pulled out my sketch pad. I first started off with different...

Thug Nugs

There is a popular saying that says “Nugs not drugs.” There’s another one that plays off the saying “Thug Life,” which is “Nug Life.” I took that and adopted it into nugget stickers with a thug look and vibe to them. I...
