Variable Tee

Color TeeI was playing around with illustrator the other day and decided to come up with this concept: I’m variable. Currently this one says Variable. I am looking at different ways to get it printed but this current Women’s V neck Shirt is $23 each if you’re interested :-). Oh why not, support the starving artist haha.

This was very refreshing to play with by the way :-). I used the same idea on a digsby design for fun:

Painting mural with team

Incredible Team!

Originally uploaded by Jerlyn Thomas

This is the great team that did this masterpiece :-)!

I got up at 6 am. I was in the office by the time I usually get up. I also had no coffee (haven’t had coffee for 2 weeks).

Our volunteer day took place at the visions vacation camp for the blind. They are actually hiring for the summer so if you’d like to apply you can download forms for employment on their site.

We painted the mural today. Yesterday Rigel and I did the preliminary sketch and today our amazing team colored the illustration.

Mural Phase 1

Today we went to sketch the mural – field trip! We went to the camp grounds to do so… to prep the area for our upcoming volunteer day.

My coworker and I decided to free draw the mural instead of projecting it, since we both can illustrate. WONDERFUL idea!

Here’s a brief journey through photos…

So weird that this place is only an hour away…It was nice to be out of the city for most of the day.

High Contrast Mural Drawing

This is what I am sketching out today for volunteer day tomorrow. It’s for a vision impaired camp that’s why the colors are in high contrast. I haven’t used illustrator in awhile so this was a change in my norm: coding or designing.

The team is painting it tomorrow. The cab leaves in a few minutes, it’s currently 9 AM. I’m excited about this field trip! A fellow co-worker, Rigel, will also be helping :-D. This should be fun!

I will document it by taking photos with my digital camera :-).

New Illustration

I was working on a new style these past weeks.

It started out with a photograph.

Brittani Smith

I took photos of this model, Brittani Smith and it was retouched from the original.

These were final inked sketches that I made from pencil sketches. I printed the photograph first and traced sketches over on tracing paper.

I made some vectors and cropped the image to create a silhouette.
