“There’s an online art challenge called the #toonmechallenge. I attempted it, but then realized that 1. I have no way of connecting the two images, 2. the measurements are probably off anyway, so it looks cooler on its own. XDDDDDD.
So here is a sloppy #selfportrait from an artist who is seriously rusty. Still, I like how the mouth and nose came out.

Dear friends, I’ve got news!

I’ve been quietly working on something new and exciting for the past 2 years.
It’s finally here! My ebook, The Estuary Veins, is out in the wild. It’s made for your phone (or other small devices).
You can purchase it on my site (https://buff.ly/2St2h8n) and get 25% off OR you can find it on Amazon.
I’m so happy this puppy is out. It certainly took a while to release but we made it and it’s very exciting.”
“I spent part of last year working with a group of incredibly talented and passionate people building an exciting new brand. Today, http://www.mantlmen.com is live and I couldn’t be more excited! Huge congrats to the MANTL team, Audrey Elise, and everyone else who helped bring this brand to life. Please go check them out, support them, and share with your friends.”

Sunday night draw. This is a drawing of a lady I follow on Instagram. If you want me to draw you, I just made an account called @idrawrandomfollowers.”

“I meant to share this a while ago but I guess I never did! A few months ago I was able to create this movie poster for Rickey Jewkes’ musical short film Meanwhile in New York. It was submitted to the Utah Film Festival earlier this year. Such an honor to create poster for this film!”

“Always a joy to create something for Ballet Center Utah, Inc!”


Alissa Hicks

“I just have to share this awesome bag that I was so lucky to get to design for my company’s event. I love the pops of color and pattern. It was so fun to do because it’s the kind of design that appeals to me personally.”

Matt Page

“Here’s the digital painting and initial sketch for the Matt card. On the iPad is one of my favorite illustrations I made this year, which was inspired by the work of Modigliani. The artwork on these cards was all done on the iPad using the Procreate app. I added the “Happy Holidays” and nameplate afterwards using Adobe Illustrator.”
“Happy holidays y’all! I hope you all have a great (whatever you’re into this time of the year)!”

“This is my second layout for SLUG magazine. Pick up the December issue now! “


 

INKTOBER 2019 & Other Scary Things!

From BBC News:

The man behind the Inktober viral drawing challenge

“In 2009, Jake Parker wanted to improve his inking skills.

What started out as a challenge for himself turned into a global phenomenon in the artist community.

During the month of October, millions of people post their drawings under the #Inktober.”

“Piece from a different Drink & Draw I went to tonight at Changing Hands Bookstore Phoenix and pit on by Fuzzy Headspace. This one had a live model. Was fun working from a model again, realized how much I’ve missed it. Took some liberties with the background.”

I recently had the opportunity to design this postcard for The INN Between’s annual fundraising event. Hospice for the homeless—compassion and care for ANYONE who is dying—is something I wholeheartedly believe in, and I’m so glad I could help.

In 2010, Salt Lake Community College Visual Art & Design Graphic Design students Nadya Bratt & Casey Kim created INK as a club for anyone interested in Graphic Design. After their graduation from SLCC, INK evolved into an online source for those passionate about the visual communication industry by offering access to news, resources, and networking.

Each piece showcases the design process from initial research and ideas to a completed product. And most importantly… how a good foundation in graphic design is used in a multitude of careers.
