#7 How Do You See Green?

How Do You See Green?

In conjunction with the Daily Musing project going on I give you Daily Design #7 How do you see Green?

The basic concept was to create an illustration around that phrase and bring it to life.  So here is what I would call a tree of life created with the help of various vector graphics packs and many vector designs from myself.

Thanks to Spoongraphics for their Free Vector Pack – Safari and Zoo Animals.

Enjoy!

#6 Robots Are Coming

Robots Are Coming! hits the #6 slot with this eye catching poster.  The original idea just focused around the words robot with three robot heads in a row in the middle, but once I started working on it the ideas started flowing.  I wanted to capture something of a vintage feel of a 1950’s monster poster in a way, but with more of a modern overhaul of it.  So I used some three dimensional type for the top title, some old vintage textures for the poster itself, and sprinkled in some vector security cameras from a Go Media Zine pack.  So beware of the coming Robots!

#5 Pencil Logos

For Daily Design #5 I dove into logo design and wanted to create something to represent Scribledude Design.   So using a texture and some multiply and overlay affects you get these three samples.

#4 Dino Tribal Girl

Daily Design #4 started with the middle Tribal guy who came from a sketch while watching TV.  After tracing his face into Illustrator I experimented with the Gaussian blur effect and created up his body and then followed the same steps for the Dino and Girl.

Here’s the first installment of the Daily Design.  So far there’s two to show since I’m trying to get back on track with the days since starting this late.

#1  Happy New Year

Magical New Years Mouse

Who doesn’t love the Magical New Years mouse?  This was created to be a wallpaper with the dimensions of 1600 x 1200.  Currently it’s sitting on my desktop but if others are interested I can post a link for download.

#2  Cramped Typography

Any Space In There?

My second installment I decided to have a little fun with varying type faces and spacing.  Since I wanted to cram in as many as I could I felt Cramped was an appropriate word to use for the situation.  A 10 x 10 inch square with who knows how many type faces are on there, feel free to count and let me know if you’d like.

That’s all for now, but keep a look out tomorrow for two more installments until I get back onto this Daily Design routine.

Take it easy

So far so good.  The fan page is up at Facebook and Scribledude.com is going to be up as soon as I can redesign the resume.

Also “Daily” Musings will be back in full swing once I have the site up and running smoothly.  Thirty Illustrations Here We Come!!  I’m pumped to be getting back into the swing of things with this project cause I’m excited to see the book that will result from it.

Last but not least, I’m shooting to get back into screen printing again.  I want to try to schedule a usual time for me to get into the screen printing facilities and get something produced for the holidays.  So far my ideas are , as usual, t shirts and maybe custom holiday cards.  Any other ideas people would want to see me screen print?

Thats all for now, Keep ya updated!

Portfolio redesign is under way. So far I’m taking my old, drab, boring, grey portfolio website and sprucing it up with some color. The theme, as in most of my projects I’m noticing, is green hills and blue sky. So far it’s good to get out of the dark feeling of the last one, but I can already tell I’ll be making changes to this site.

The only tedious part of the site is going back to older work and tweaking it here and there to make it look better. It’s funny looking back at all the early work I did and seeing how much I didn’t know then compared to now. Simple shortcuts I could have used and techniques I didn’t know at the time clearly show through some of this stuff, but I’m glad I’ve taken the time to go over my older work and see how much I have grown as a graphic designer and illustrator.

So once this revamp of the website is done I think I’m going to be moving onto my thesis website and resizing it in order to get it up online.

Stay tuned!
