Creative Project- Web Icons, version 1

Creative Project- Web Icons, version 1

I’ve started out with some draft sketches, (didn’t want to rush right in, so I’ve been considering several ideas) running with a steam/cyberpunk theme.
Had the thought of the icons being “used” for a an artist’s portfolio or shop website.
(I would totally use these for my own if I had one)
Basic icon functions:
Account, Settings, Home, Previous & Next Page, Watch (follow), Cart, Share, and Log-Out/sign-in

As I get further into the vector work, I may tone-down the detail.

Chris Spollen & Daniel Pelavin

26 Oct

by Chris Spollen

Spollen and Pelavin are both vector artists whose styles are very different.  Spollen’s work takes an almost traditional-media feel, where Pelavin’s is starkly graphic.  I chose these two pieces because I thought they displayed their differences perfectly.

 With almost an identical theme, we can see the detail and ambient texture of Spollen’s train, seeming stoic and stopped, and how it is contrasted by the warm-toned one-dimensional shapes that set Pelavin’s train in motion by an angled line.

Spollen (left) has a very steampunk taste with mechanical pieces and use of vintage photographs and toned texture, that appear in almost all his pieces in some form.

.Pelavin’s typography was fascinating to look through. The bold font styles, monochromatic or limited color schemes and playful placing, made for eye-catching pieces throughout his gallery. I especially liked his vintage styled logo’s such as this one (right).

I enjoyed, once again, looking and studying other artists’ work, and will take inspiration from them.

Changed type font, added slight gradients to clouds & small edits. Pretty happy with the end result.

A More Beautiful Question

23 Oct

I call this the “New Glimmersite replacement assignment”!

I was looking around Warren Berger’s site, Warren Berger & beautiful questions

http://amorebeautifulquestion.com/, and found an article of his that really intrigued me:

Mick Ebeling, Master Questioner

It’s about Mick Ebeling, an entrepreneur and philanthropist,

who invented a tool that would help a paralyzed artist draw again.

This really makes me so happy, I’d heard that there was something out there, but never learned what or by whom until now. Being an artist, one of my worst fears is that something would happen that would prevent me from drawing, so it’s incredibly comforting to know that there is a tool out there to help; and incredibly inspiring that Mark Noonan who took it upon himself to create it.
