Nature Calendar 2022

These images are of the month of March for a calendar that was for the year 2022. The theme for the calendar was nature. How I choose what illustration was what grew or represented the month. 

Still life

These images are a still life sketch of a vase on a block and a salt shaker be it. This sketch was to show proportion and the way the light was coming from. It also shows the shadows from each object. The most interesting part of drawing this sketch was making the vase look so realistic with the shading and proportions. 

Dessert

These images are of a set of sticker sheets. The theme is desserts. The vibe that I wanted to give to the customer is that they are cute and fun stickers that can be put anywhere they want. The color scheme of being muted colors added to the cute and comfortable vibe that I wanted to give off. It is a stick sheet that could be used at a dessert shop. 

Skull

 Here are images of a charcoal drawing. This drawing is a still life of a skull on a block. Sketching this really challenged me to learn how to shade for open objects. This sketch has a lot of detail included and capturing that in the sketch was very important to show that it is a real object. It needs to come to life.

Divine

Here are images of the final version of a magazine I designed. In this magazine there are three design based articles. One of the articles was one that I did all the layout for and the other two were from other students. I  changed very little the of the layout and elements of the other two articles. The magazine name on the cover came from finding words that really showed high end design. The cover image were of images of models that the teacher provided. I had to take those images and and change them to be more design. What I did with them was make them have a splatter effect on.  The big color background on the cover is a close up of one of the model images face paint.

Flower Landscape

This painting was for a project that I got where I got to pick what I could paint. I choose to do a landscape of the sky, clouds, grass, and flowers. To try something new and out of my comfort zone I added another element to the painting. I show this image of a wooden heart with a faded painted edge. I took sticks from my backyard that were different sizes and cleaned them up and painted them in tints of purple. Then I glue them on a black heart cut out. Doing that made it so they made a heart shaped. I then place the wooden heart on the canvas to finish the painting.  

Purple

Here are images of a color profile poster I did for class. You got the choose a color and do research on it and design a  poster for it too. I choose the color purple because it is my favorite color and it has a lot of history to it. Purple is known for being a sign of royalty. In the old time periods anyone that wore the purple was of some royal blood or very wealthy. With that being its history that is why I made the king and queen illustrations. They are very detailed as the crowns are very detailed and have many jewels.  Having the ribbon illustration in the design it pulls the crowns and other elements together. The typeface for the word “purple” is meant to represent the structure of the crowns. 

Children's book

Here are images of part of children's book I did. I was in a group of two other designers and we each we given the task of finding a old folktale and illustrated it. The stroy I pick/ found was called "Why the Sun and the Moon are in the Sky?" The story the sun and water how how there was no room in the Sun's house for the water and his people to stay, so the sun had to build a bigger house. the water invited so many of his people that there was no room for the sun and the moon, so they were pushed into the sky. 

Album Cover & Label

Here are images of a album cover design I did. The cover is for the artist FINNEAS and his album called "Optimist". The album focuses on the idea that everything gets better. With that I came up with the design of having sad smiley faces and only having one happy smiley face in the corner as the focal point. The smiley face also plays a part in the labels.

Craftwork Beer Labels

These image are a collection of three fruit flavored beers. the favors being blueberry, strawberry, and pluot. The idea behind the illustrations were what season does these fruit grow in? The answer is summer. Then I thought what represents summer? It's water. That where you get the wave, river, and waterfall. 

Zoo Icons

This images are a collection of zoo icons. My idea behind the design is that each icon looks like a real coin. They have this metallic look and color to them.
