Just want to throw up some more stuff I did for school. BLEH!
The Osheaga poster was for Typography class. We had to design a wood-type (or wood-type-ish in my case) poster around an existing festival . One of the last things I did with my buds back home was go to Montreal and did the whole Osheaga 2012 thing. With out getting too much into it, let’s just say it was pretty f*%$ing awesome! If you’ve been to Osheaga 2012 let me know in the comments! I’d like to hear about your experience.
Typography’s second assignment. I made a few rough drafts of potential title headers. Just playing around with words and placement. Which one do you like? Got any suggestions?
A quick little diddy I drew for digital imaging class. The assignment was to draw any thing we’d like in grey scale using a tablet. I got swamped with a different assignemt that’s due very soon and had to do this very quickly before class. I decided drawing some thing from scratch in the time frame i had would take too long so I did what any good artist would, I stole. I didn’t actually steal this as all the line work, design, and shading was still done by myself, but I traced over a pre-existing image. Though it’s not totally original, I was rather pleased by how it turned out since it really was my first real attempt to draw any thing with a tablet.
Below is the original image I used to trace. You can tell which one is mine, cause the original one is better :P
Just want to show off 2 more illustrations I’ve done for school. One on old school paper and ink, and the other in Illustrator. For those who may scour this blog for other art/geek related topics that’s not just my own stuff I apologize for the self centered few postings. I’ll have some other interesting shiznits posted other than my own stuff soon. For now, enjoy these 2 illustrations!
Back at’er, as the locals of my home would say. This is quarter two of my graphic design course, and already, the banner I made for this blog before school is making me hate myself. Ah yes, the awakening of a mind, learning new ways to pick things apart needlessly.
So to the point, here’s a bunch of stuff I did during school so far.
This was for design class. We had to make a cardboard spaceship. I chose to do the Sith Destroyer from Star Wars. pew pew pew.
Digital Imaging 2. We had to create a CD cover for a band of our chsosing. I really like the Gorillaz and thought it would be interesting to work with their art style. I was unconfident with photoshop at the time of this project, and had missed a class. I asked my friend Steve, a great artist and graphic designer, to help me catch up. While he was there we did this project together as a kind of quick tutorial.
This is Digital Imaging 2′ assignment 2. we had to create an ad from a select era. I was once a huge TF2 player, bus since have waned in the game. I am still a huge fan of the art style of the game. I chose to do my ad from the 40s-50s era, and drew lots of inspiration from TF2’s mock poster advertisements since the game takes place in that era.
Hey look, I drew some tomatoes, and here they are :D
With more and more projects piling on, it get’s harder to find time to sit down for a few hours and just draw. Of course this is really just an excuse, I’ve played my fair share of hours in Minecraft and Mass Effect 3’s multi-player to have four portfolios completed over the last few months. A friend wants me to do his story boards for his film, starting school again in August, and seeing friends of new and old surpass me in ability and passion was more than enough to motivate me to get back into it.
A little while ago I featured an article describing the altered art world of Magic the Gathering. Today I’m here to feature the alters of one specific artist.
Eric Klug is a freelance illustrator based in Maryland, US. His alters are some of the best and most imaginative I’ve ever seen. Some thing that garbed my attention right away while I was browsing his (many, MANY) alters was both the versatility in style, and the subtle witty undertone of his work. It’s one thing to be amazed by a beautifully re-rendering of a card, but it’s another to chuckle, while being amazed at the same time.
As usual, I don’t like being too wordy, I rather let the images do the talking. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a million trillion worth of words.
Be sure to visit Eric online for even more incredible work!
