Featured Eye Candy

Graphic Content, a local blog that features artists in the area, shared some of my work today.  I had been contacted by Kiel, the main contributor to the site, and was asked if he could use some of my work for future content. (He found my site because I had linked to them in my Design blog roll.)  I gave him permission and, thus, it has now occurred.  There may be more of my work featured in the future, if it’s found worthy enough and their in need of content. Go check it out and browse through previously featured artists and their work!

It’s a blog that is showcasing local artists and their varying art – and I think it’s great! Got some stuff you want to share? Submit it to them!

Three Vector Portraits

Vector Portraits

I was asked to create these three vector portraits yesterday. I spent 4.5 hrs yesterday and 7.5 hrs today working on them. While they aren’t exactly spitting images of the persons, they are pretty darn close and take on some of their characteristics. I’m pretty proud of them.

I’m having issues with using black in Illustrator. For some reason, the default black swatch isn’t true black and so after I’m all done with an image, I realize that the “black” I used is actually slightly grey or purple. I’ve had this issue on two separate computers, so I know it’s not how I have the swatches set up. But it might be something with the color mode – anyone out there know what the issue might be? I only notice it once I save as a .jpg, never while I’m creating.

August Wallpapers

This month, the theme is Summer and Back to School. Feel free to download any to your computer to use as your background! Find them at this page.

There’s only one more month left until I’ve done a series of wallpapers for every month of the year. I plan to continue doing wallpapers as often as I can (because some of them are sub-par) and that might mean once a month, once every couple weeks or once every several weeks. I’ll try to add monthly wallpapers to current months that are lacking good wallpapers. But I also hope to just release themed series, like “flowers”, “swirls”, “retro”, etc. If you have any themes you’d like to see wallpapers for sometime, leave a comment with your suggestions!
