Sun Please.

I have been very neglectful! After graduation I went to Vegas for a week and then got back and started the wedding planning so I have been a poor excuse for a blogger.  I bought a sunhat in Vegas that has become my favorite accessory!  Especially because my forehead cannot take anymore sun.  So here is a quick illustration inspired by my hat! :)

Getting the supplies ready!

Cutting the wood... took many tries and much wasted wood before we got it right. :(

Putting them together!

Hooray! Nine frames? No biggie.

For the student exhibition at CCS I decided to make my own frames instead of having them professionally done.  Main reason was the cost, but also I just really wanted to try it.  They turned out really good and I was really proud of them!  My fiances' brother helped me out a lot with the cutting but I was a very helpful assistant :).  Will post pictures of the finished product and images later!

Silkscreen and ties!

Not my favorite part.

Almost there!

Ah.. favorite part.

And then... finished! For my brother's 18th birthdays I decided to make them each a tie.  They have a couple of nice events coming up so I thought it would be cool if they had their own personalized tie to wear to them.  One is "Gimme Gimme More" because my bro loves Brit, and the other is a balloon animal for my other brother because... well its precious.  They better appreciate them because this was a late night for me and all involved. But it was fun :)

Packaging is DONE!

Told you they were almost here! And one day later... what do you know.  I am really happy with them.  It was something completely new for me and I put a lot of time into this project to make it come together.  So happy with the product. Introducing Abroad Affairs Lip Gloss!

In my image class we had an assignment to either create a design for a website or redesign an existing website.  I chose to design a website for my Uncle's band, Legend the Band, which already has a website but I thought it would be fun to do something close to home.  The band is a 50s and 60s rock and roll cover band so I wanted to keep it looking vintage and simple.  The designs are basically what the page would look like on the home page and what would happened if you clicked a link.  It is not actually being made, the point of the assignment is to think about what things would do on the page and what it would look like.

View Book Illustration #3!

"Artist's revitalize spaces."

I was asked to do one more illustration for the CCS View Book after the first two I had submitted to them last week.  I was pretty excited but only had a few days to complete it so it was spontaneous and fun.  I loved making all the "frames" and just getting crazy and creative with the designs.
