End of Summer Recap
Hello Everyone. Happy Labor Day Weekend!
Summer is winding down now and Fall quickly approaching. Are you ready for cool days and nights, sweaters and the leaves changing? Are you ready to go back to school, for pumpkin spice or your favorite TV shows to return? I am, but I’ll still take a few more days, or weeks, of summer 🙂
I thought it was time for a quick update, and I figure since I have this new site and easy to update blog, I could do a little something something for ya. So with that, here’s what’s been going on!
At the start of summer, I did some designs for a friend who has a Non-Profit Organization. I honestly don’t know much about the project, but I do know he wanted to make T-shirts to sell for charity. And I believe his church is involved, and that some, if not all, of the money would be going to help Haiti. So while I didn’t/don’t have all the project info, I know it’s all for a good cause which was more than enough for me to hop on board. These images would be used like the Polo logo is used on a shirt, small and placed where the breast pocket might go. And you can see there are a wide variety of color options. I’m not quite sure if any shirts have been made yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing them when they are.
Early in the summer I made a logo for a friend’s start-up. She (Chi) sells jewelry, among other things, and she really wasn’t feeling the logo she already had. Since I had hooked up a logo sometime back for a friend of her’s that she liked, she had kept me in mind for when it was time to revamp her logo. Also, along with the final logo and logo with image, you can see some of the original sketches and mocks that lead to the final design.
Around mid-summer I designed and illustrated a dust jacket for Danielle Burnette. Danielle wrote a book that she wanted to self publish, and she reached out to me for the cover design and illustration. I was more than happy to help out and the end result came out great! When the book was done she then asked me to create an intro image for her website. I had a lot of fun illustrating both images and it looks like I’ll be helping out with some business cards very soon as well! You can check out the book and site at the links below!
Past that, there are a few other things going on, that I either can’t talk about yet, or can’t show work for. However, I can still tell you a little bit about what’s going on. For example, I’m currently working on a new educational game app. It’s got a pretty cute style and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the final product. Also, the Legend of Fat Ninja team is working on another game for Cartoon Network. I’m excited about this one, but it’ll be a long time off before it comes out, so stay tuned. I’m also adding to the NBA buddies I did a few years back for Curriculum Associates. And speaking of C.A, I’m also doing a few illustrations for their educational website. This is another project that’s a long way off from release. And lastly, I’ve been freelancing for Sudler and Hennessy, illustrating and designing an Interactive Kiosk Display for a pharmaceutical convention. This display includes some mini games using the new Leap Motion controller, which is similar to the X-Box Kinect.
Ok, I think that about wraps it up. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your summer!
