Lets Be Fashionable People


Edited (obviously)

Photo Edits for Tara (the gf's twin sister). She is currently in Paris, France for a fashion merchandising class and asked if I would edit some photos and make them more 'professional looking'. Well you cannot save a terrible photo at 72 dpi but lets see what we can muster up.

Brilliant Horizon: How the Horizon is Illuminated

This is really an example of how my design evolves as I work through a concept. Looking back on my earlier ideas I am grateful that they stayed as concepts and did not bloom into anything. The final concept is finally coming together and I am overjoyed to see how it is turning out.

Total running time: 9 hours (7.21.10)

Cliche and boring. what is going on with the adolescent girl?

A sketch drawn in the middle of the morning. I came up with a genious idea halfway through REM sleep (or it seemed) and could not let it slip away. Quick sketch follow by continued REM sleep.

Fleshing out the final concept.

Finalizing color choices and cleaning up lines. Type still needs work.

Touched up the lines and colors.

Need to add a few typography edits and we should be good.

Most Stout Men Don't Rape

We are currently debating the type/wording of the poster to make it sound, lets say, less terrible.

The Wonderful World-o-Wigen (update)

Well it has been a few since I posted the start to my poster series for the Wigen Hall RA's (Wizard of Oz theme). My character design is done for the tin man and I am working on placing his on a floating island? YEP! and its awesome. Tell me your thoughts...

V1. I am the Tin Man and I am on top of the world!

V2. The floating platform has been cleaned up a great deal.

V3. Just need to work out the kinks on the text for the RA names.

How to Excuse Yourself from a Drinking Situation (hehe)

This next bulletin board is how to formulate excuses when you are hanging out with drinkers and are not drinking. Me and the designers came up with some much better excuses than the original ones which were terrible. Read the examples below and you will understand what I mean by terrible.

1. If someone asks
"Hey, everyone, how about doing a round of kamikaze shots?

You could say

"No thanks. The last time I did shots I puked up colors you've never even seen before."

2. If someone asks
"Why aren't you drinking?"

You could say

"You should've seen me last night, man. Then you'd have the ugly answer to that question." (You can say this even if you didn't drink last night!)

I am still working on formulating excuses that are clever and either very ridiculous or outlandish. This bulletin board project has been a large under taking but I decided to try a new illustration style for each one. I have 3.5 down and 1.5 more to go.
