Breakfast with Parks and Rec

One thing you should know about me, is that I love the TV show Parks and Recreation. I think it is the funniest show ever and I have rewatched the show about 12 times and so I am very emotionally connected the each of the characters. With that said, when this project...

Sloths are my Friends REP

Isn’t this sloth graphic so cute? It was done by Alexander Vidal and it was inspired by BBC’s Planet Earth II. This illustration is done very nicely and looks very clean. As a student, I look at this graphic and see the different shapes and textures and...

Watch Creation

Wow, what a couple of weeks it has been! This project has been a real stressor for me! It has caused me to really think and look at things (I mean everything) differently. This project was really difficult, but it has taught me SO MUCH and I am so grateful for that....

Time is Real

For this project, my goal was to make a watch that looks realistic. I went to my sketch book and went to work figuring different parts of a watch and their shading. After looking at multiple watches and their different parts, I found a photo of a watch from Pinterest...

Never Settle. Always Subtle.

I should start off by saying that I do not, under any circumstances, consider myself a graphic designer. Seven weeks ago I didn’t know how to use half the tools in Adobe Illustrator’s toolbar. Now I do. Know half, that is. I am however a patient person who pays...

Creating Time

For this vector watch project, I decided to recreate a fossil watch I found online that had silver straps and case as well as a turquoise face. This project took a lot of trial and error for me to portray on to illustrator the shapes, shadows, highlights and mid-tones...

Oh Look at the Time!

During the course of this project, every time I looked up from working on my watch, I was in shock that I’d been working for so long; hence my title. This project was a crazy one. My goal was to make a vector, photo-realistic time piece. The amount of time that went...

Watch Time Is It?

For the past two weeks I have been working on making an realistic watch in Illustrator and it is safe to say that I have come a long way since the first week of this class. This project was not only time consuming, but it took a lot of patience to do all the details...

Square Time Teller

Time Square or Square Time Teller? Today I was watching a documentary on Netflix about design. The designer that they were spotlighting was talking about if someone started to draw hearts as squares it would be so abstract that most people would not understand that...

“It’s 10:11 Somewhere.”

When I set out to replicate this gorgeous Olivia Burton watch, I honestly did not know what I was getting myself into. The only thing I could see was a beautiful, deep brown face with gorgeous rose gold metal features. I fell in love, and for the past two weeks,...

Kate Spade or Kate Austin?

HOLY COW it’s done! This project was so unbelievably fun for me, as much as I wanted to throw my laptop at the wall sometimes. But I loved the creativity behind making something photorealistic.  My goal was to take my favorite watch, The Fifth Tribeca watch, and...

Watch the Time (Disappear)

Taking on the task of creating a photorealistic watch can be summarized in a few words: Thrilling. Frustrating. Time-consuming.  Going into this I knew I wanted to do my absolute best to make an impressive vector graphic that I could put in my portfolio. With that, I...

Komono Houndstooth Vector Watch

Before I started this project, I thought it looked impossible. I’m glad it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated! It definitely took patience, but I learned a lot from doing it. I knew from the start I wanted to do a Komono watch since it’s a brand I like....
