This is a concept I put together for a dog’s hot sauce, made for those dogs and owners who have to have everything! Its target audience would be dog owners who have an affinity for their little k-9 friends. This is a two page spread advertisement meant for a magazine.
A simple and creative look for a book cover and binder. Its not a real book, but don’t you wish it was!?
This is a project from the Art Institute that I did for my form and space class. We had to take a photograph of an animal that we drew out of a bucket, and make it using Popsicle sticks. I could not believe how well it came out considering the shape and form of such a large sea creature I picked. I began with forming the shapes of the body, and made cylinders in several different circumferences. Once I got a body, I just thought of creative ways to add the limbs and face! Voila, popsicle stick manatee!!!
A simple drawing of a cheerleader (as today I need some cheering!) I drew this using a tracing technique, and brought it over into Illustrator did some magic and gave it color, and textures. Nice little ditty!
This is a branding challenge I created a solution for. I was asked to create from the bottom up a hot sauce. Each step of creating a theme, mission statement, story, label and bottle design choice. I liked the idea of devil’s tears being hot drops and I think this poster captures the feeling I was going for.
This is a grouping of sketches I did for an assignment that required us to draw free hand, images from the zoo. I really liked drawing these, because they were my real first attempt at drawing animals. I had a few problems, and got a great laugh out of my first professor at Baker College. She thought my rhino looked like it was starving to death, I agree! I love the giraffe, and gator. I think they have real personality coming through the pencil lines.
This is an design of a US postage stamp (mock) that I created. Simple and elegant this stamp features musical instruments and a bass clef. Postage stamp design done in Photoshop.
This is a class assignment to create a perspective cityscape drawn with markers on white board. Different shades of grey were used to create a night scene, and then covered with a self-created logo for Turner Classic Movies Late Night Noir. This assignment was particularly challenging because it was a requirement to include street level and rooftop in addition, it is all hand drawn with no ruler.
This electrifying idea was part of an assignment to create 50 icon drawings of random things. We were then to take those 50 drawings and choose 10 and then concept a story and show it in a creative way. I choose my pig, fish, snake, toaster, apartment building, city scape, sun, a brain, a tree and flowers.
Initials Project – Illustrative Concept Design
This project was a part of my illustrative concept design class work. It is pencil on white board and the originals are 4×6. The assignment was to take our initials and give them action. R is being rolled, L is lazing down the river, and P is popping out of a cake. We assembled our drawings into a little book of initials, and we bound it ourselves. This was my first experience in applied drawing. My professors always say I have a quirky and unique vision in my illustrations.
