Anti Bad Vibe Shield

For this project I wanted to focus be simple in the composition and detailed in the illustration. The first thing I had to do was deciding what kind of music the band was to play, since that will determine the direction of the project and the feeling i would give to...

Into the Eye

Gig Posters are pretty cool because they are unique to each city. Bands, Musicians and Artists would contract out to local artists/designers to design a special poster just for the one night they were in town. These posters would then be blanketed around town. The...

Jamming Out With White Noise

The Draft Stage One of the important things that I had to do was figure out the direction that I wanted to go with as I was creating my Gig Poster. I had an image in my mind of a lightning bold striking a valley or a mountain and so I began putting up some concept...

The Saskatunes & the Moosentaur

When given the task of creating a gig poster, I first decided on the name of a fictitious band to create the poster for: The Saskatunes, a very relaxed, indie folk-type band. This is a name devised by me and some friends I worked at scout camp with, which set the...

Dwelling on Details

For this project, I tried to use all of my prior knowledge and experience in Adobe Illustrator to create a gig poster for an imaginary band of my own making. There were several steps to this process and many things were changed, edited and completely taken out in...

The Spooks live in Portland

I decided to do a flier for an indie-punk type band. I had a lot of fun with this project because it allowed me to be more creative and care less about what actually makes sense. I drew a lot of influence from show posters I’ve seen from bands like The Growlers...

Reverse Love: Gig Poster Style

OBJECTIVE:  Create a gig poster through sketching with a paper and pencil, and then taking it to Adobe Illustrator.    SKETCHES: Here is where I started the initial sketches. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do my poster on, so I first started sketching...

There’s Bearly Any Push

I’ve always had a thing about music. Since I was young I would listen to my favorite songs on repeat in my room until the CD started to give out by being played too much. Conveniently, I don’t have to worry about that anymore with the advent of digital...

Offshore

The job was to create and design a gig poster for a band you create. This project really stretched my creativity and allowed me to do illustrations that I wouldn’t normally do or think of. My objective for this project is to create simple poster that sends a...

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...
