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!
