Another fun exploration!
Janet is our cousin's passion project. I will soon share more details about it. But for now here's a logo I've been working on!
Love this month and the fact that this year is my first year spending it with my lovely husband and both of our families! Was too excited so I made this. Merry Christmas!!
This weekend @Clarke Harris and I decided to work on a project outside of our comfort zone (aka computers). We started thinking about a way to represent working hard/purposefully/without getting burnt out. And we made this typeface out of balloons.
It was definitely challenging to work with balloons, but worth it! Enjoy!
I love noticing what my husband likes to wear, the way he thinks and his interesting/cute little habits he has. So I decided to illustrate a few things that remind me of him.
Playing with some textures...!
Fall is so beautiful up here in Portland and it inspired me to show a little of what means to live here. Coffee shops for dayzzz and of course crazy hair too. Enjoy!
An animation I worked on of an illustration Clarke made. A few weeks ago I got a called from my bank saying my card might've been compromised and they were sending me a new one just in case. Never a fun phone call!
An illustration I worked on the past two days for a very special thing my dad and I partnered years ago to do. That is to bring hope and love to the hopeless and unloved. Can't believe 6+ years later we still get to do this and I get to make fun little illustrations for it!
I decided to show the process of this piece because I never do and I thought it could be helpful to some or just really for my own satisfaction. I've been learning a ton from my sweet husband who loves to make stuff all the time and showers me with ideas and tons of insightful stories about all things design. And something I noticed is that when he starts a new project he sketches it all out on his notebook and later digitizes it. I usually start "making" on my Illustrator/After Effects whatever I'm trying to achieve. Which I later noticed takes A LOT longer to finish because I never knock out the final composition. So I'm constantly "making" and re-thinking my decisions constantly. So here it is! (Also, my sketches are never as flawless as his, so bear with me...)
I hope you didn't get bored out of your mind reading this! :)
Also, go over to my dribble and like it!
I married a gator alumni/fan so this made him a little happy to see... Not quite the best representation. But it was fun to work on this and include it in an animation my department and I put together!
This past weekend I found out I'm going to see my fiancé in a few days! I worked on this animation last week with a not so happy heart counting 73 days until the day I would see him in August. But I found out on Saturday I will be able to see him Friday. So here's to our soon wedding, and our even sooner "seeing each other after 3 months" day! Yay! Our parents are the best.
Needed to take a break for a minute, and this happened...
I recently went to a friend's house and they had a teepee in the backyard for their kids to play at. And I secretly kind of obsessed about it and made a little animation just for kicks. Definitely getting one someday...
And yes, this is part of the illustrations from the post below!
Have been a bit crazy. Between wedding planning, personal projects and a full time job, somehow I managed to find some time to illustrate a few things that I identify as part of my crazy move from the east coast to the Pacific northwest. This might not make much sense to you now, but don't worry, I do have more illustrations that I'm working on!
