After many hours hunched over a cutting board with burned and glued fingers, our wedding invites are finally done!
My friend Bill and I stopped in this week to shoparooni to check out the Vinyl show 'Straight from the crate'. The show looks really good. This was the second time I stopped in and already there are a lot of pieces missing. Its a pay and go show, so you can swipe the pieces right from the wall if you're going to buy.
I originally had the idea of building a large cassette tape out of old records and record covers, but with limited time and size restrictions...I went with painting a cassette tape on a record.
I've been giving up my Saturdays to take an Adobe Flash class, to freshen up and to begin to build my portfolio site. I was itching to do a quick animation in Flash since its been so long and thought AstroBoy would be fun, seeing that the movie is right around the corner....
...So, here it is in all its glory. 18 seconds of awesomenesss....wow- all that work for 18 dumb seconds??? Glad I'm not an animatorSee it on YouTube!
Here are the pieces and parts for a flash animation Im working on. On saturdays Im taking a Flash class to get refreshed so I can set my website up in Flash. Seeing all the cool animation stuff you can do, I couldn't help myself and start an AstroBoy animation in light of the new movie coming to theaters soon. I should have the animation up in a few days hopefully....stay tuned!
Star Trek TNG- "the early years"
A sketch for Sketch-o-rama this week. I thought the next generation gang could possibly be in school while cap'n kirk and spock are just getting started on the enterprise. I did this in Illustrator- Im trying to get faster at vectoring...CS4 makes life a lot easier.
'San Juan', my final for the new Skate Deck show. For the most part I'm happy with how it turned out.
I inked the city sketch using India Ink
The background pattern was applied with spray paint after the stencil was cut.
Cutting a stencil for a background pattern. I took a photo of this pattern when we were in San Juan. It was a really cool tile floor in one of the old buildings. Thought I'd be able to use it for something someday.
I decided to rework the illustration on my board from the 'All hands on Decks' art show. I wanted to keep the wood showing through this time. Heres the sanded board all ready to be painted up.
Heres my submission to Sketch-o-rama (http://sketch-o-rama.blogspot.com/). The theme this week was the Terminator since the new movie will be coming out soon.
I inked my sketch in photoshop CS4, the rotate view tool helped so much! Saved me so much time.
My original concept sketch.
I've been working on a concept for a childrens book and wedding stuff (invites and all that fun stuff).
But its been my webpage that has been taking up most of my time...check it out so far. Still have a long way to go, but think I have a decent portfolio picked out. Hoping to have it up in the next few months.
My sketch for my skate deck for the 'All Hands On Decks' art show.
The subject is San Juan, Puerto Rico...where I spent Christmas and New Years last year. The houses are so colorful, I've been wanting to do some kind of art piece of San Juan for some time now.
