Art for Jee

Hello everyone! I'm trying to get back into posting. I've been doing most of my designing at work so I haven't been illustrating as much as I would like. So here's a new one! I created this little piece of art for a classmate of mine that's been going through some tough times. Hope she get's better soon!

Black Friday!

Black Friday was CRAZY! People go a little nutty on Black Friday.... My hope is that I will never have to work in retail on Black Friday ever again. Here's a jiggy doodle I made to describe the day.

Goodbye Urban Outfitters

My last day at Urban Outfitters was on Black Friday. I suppose after working there for over 8 years I had to go out with a BANG! The great part is that I got a new job! Not only is it a new job, but it is an amazing job as a UI Designer for PopCap Games. I will finally be designing full time! R.I.P. Urban Outfitters. I will miss you dearly.

Back To School: Tot By Toys!

I've decided to periodically go back to some of my school projects that I really enjoyed and post some of the images that didn't make it on my portfolio site, and a also give a little description about each project. This logo is one of them. I created this logo for a company called Tot By Toys. The store specialized in educational designer toys for kids. Here are my inspiration photo's (from research), and the final logo. As you can see, I pulled a little inspiration from each of these images, but I have to admit, my main sources of inspiration came from Dr. Seuss and Sanrio, two of the world's greatest artists and designers out there!

Things Are Looking Up!

This weeks illustration for that weekly drawing thing was a lot of fun! The directions were to illustrate type that reads "things are looking up". I had so much fun with it that I made two different drawings and had a hard time deciding which one to submit!

Animal Topiaries

I created this little tree friend for that weekly drawing thing. He's an animal topiary! I was thinking of drawing a picture of a tree about to eat a little boy, but I ran out of time and drew this guy instead. I feel like I should just call my blog that other weekly drawing thing since all I post are drawings for that blog...but none the less, I love my little blog and will continue to post, even if this is all I post each week.

Monster Fish Man & His Drug Pig

Tis the time to get excited about Halloween! I created this one for that weekly drawing thing, and since it was my week to choose the topic, I went all out!

Here's the story behind the name:
I wanted to have a nice Halloween theme, so I first chose Monster Fish Man. Then later in the week, I went hiking with my brother, his wife, and my dad, and as we were hiking my brother and I began trying to speak in German (because my brothers wife knows German) and by mistake I ended up saying Drug Pig! So there you have it, and what a fine title it is! Have a wonderfully spooky Halloween!
