For these projects, I simply found something that inspires me and took it into a more graphic representation. I created these illustrations in hopes to further develop my artistic style and skill. Each of these projects were completely self driven and created by me.
A great quote from Saul Bass reads “Where do ideas come from? From looking at one thing, and seeing another.” I simply saw something or myself and wanted to express that subject further by using my own specifc style. My current style that I have been experimenting with is fairly simple and somewhat geometric with smooth lines and bright colors.
I worked specifically digital on Illustrator as well as an iPad drawing app known as Procreate. Often starting on iPad making larger and simpler shapes and taking it into illustrator where I add many more details and rounded strokes. Sometimes I would also take my own pictures of subject matter which I would refer back to during the design process.
I have received positive feedback for these projects and I have also gained some commissioned projects from people seeking their own graphic in my similar style. I learned that I enjoy a simpler style but I still want to explore further. More specifically experimenting with photoshop in the design process.
Create every day that you can! Don’t think about it! Just start!
