Animals in my kits
Animals in my kits
Hello! Some more catching up today! These stills are a few examples of the work I did for the KWK! Comic app available for Android, iPhone and who knows what else. It’s a great project I was approached for a little over a year ago where you can create your own fun little comics using provided imagery, purchasing kits like mine for more diversity, and using your own photographs! It’s a neat little idea and the kids love it, so if you’ve got any of those, you should take a peek.
It was a very different job, and I have to admit that it was a lot of fun! I would be open to doing more app work in the future. 🙂
Day 16: Batwings
Day 17: Insect
Day 18: Cauldron
Well… October ended. Not sure when the end of the month got here, but I know it happened and, sadly, with the rush of work and whatever else happened in October, I failed to finish the illustration challenge I took up. That being said, I made it pretty far and enjoyed the challenge more than anticipated. Perhaps next year the entire challenge will get finished, hmm?
So, to end the fun little series, here are the last three days I did– unfinished as they may be. Enjoy Batwings, Insect, and Cauldron!
In other news, I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed their Halloween!
Now that all the Birthdays have come and gone, it’s finally time to put this little series up here! It was a wonderful challenge, coming up with four cards that interacted this year. There was originally going to be 5, but, well… I settled at four.
If you like what you see, I’ve got cut out variations of each of these creatures up on my RedBubble Shop as stickers, iPhone cases and a variety of other unique gifts.
Each piece was drawn using brush and India ink, then finished up and formatted using Adobe Photoshop. Additionally, each card had some fun hand done font inside wishing each family member the very best on their special day. With any luck, I’ll have these available as a 4 or 8 pack set of blank stationary as soon as I get my Store Envy shop up and running!
I don’t usually think to post my sketches up on here, but in retrospect, I don’t see why I shouldn’t. Sketches are an important process to every artist, whether they’re sketches of a piece commissioned, random doodles enjoyed over a cup of coffee, or observational scribbles. As a student, one of my classes this semester is focussed entirely around the sketchbook and trying to get us back into them, because they are very important. It’s an importance that gets lost in the hustle-bustle, busy-body world of present day. I miss sketching, and so they will be periodically popping up onto my blog, to remind myself and others that there is always time to sit down and draw a little something.
An added twist to this assignment, and to explain the entree title, is that only one of the two sketchbooks I’m required to keep this semester will remain with me. Sketchbooks are often thought to be very personal objects, but as in Illustrator you need to learn to be a little less attached. The school supplied the smaller of my books, and it will be returned to the school, for the KCAI Illustration Library to be kept and used by future students for inspiration– or a good laugh. Exciting, isn’t it? 🙂 Anyway, enjoy!
