Playing around with some groovy vote buttons!
I've been teaching myself how to animate some micro-animations (emphasis on the MICRO). I'm fascinated with how fleeting memories and thoughts can be and wanted to translate this idea into some new experimental pieces. A gif seemed the perfect medium and so here we are:
My pops is a huge, hugE, huGE, hUGE, HUGE baseball fan! Like the biggest. He's working on hitting (pun intended) all of the MLB baseball stadiums and as a result we've seen quite a few games over the year. He's also a big ol' Giants fan. From an early age he ingrained the values of rooting for SF deep into our impressionable kid brains. Go giants! (It worked.) On top of that, Willie Mays is his all-time hero, man crush and favorite player, so I decided I would put together a baseball/Willie Mays flavored Christmas gift for the old man. I'm pleased to report that he was happy with it. Happy Holidays!
I love patterns. I've used found fabric patterning in the backgrounds of many of my mixed media paintings, but I wanted to try my hand at designing my own. These are a handful of the designs I generated in 2017.
By hiring an illustrator. ;)
A Kentucky Derby-esque drawing of a woman and her fascinator.
I have hardly any experience when it comes to painting murals, but I went ahead and painted this undulating mural for a home gym anyways. The original drawing was created digitally and the final painting was produced using good ol' fashioned house paint.
These digital illustrations are inspired by the tradition of cross stitching, something I've never had the patience to stitch, but apparently have the drive to draw. I added some flowing hand drawn titles for each spot illustration to finish off the grouping. Hope you'll enjoy!
I've made a handful of sketchbooks over the last year using some book binding techniques I picked up in a course I took years ago. Since then, I've played around with all sorts of different ways to finish off these books. I love giving out handmade gifts when I can and these make wonderful presents.
Sometimes one cup isn't enough.
My wonderful, talented mother asked me to whip up some business cards to promote her business.
