Creative 365: Best of December

The Creative 365 project is me doing everything I can to do something amazing and creative every single day for a year! Every month, I plan on posting the best pieces from it for you here!

Of all the months in this project, December was the hardest. I was working on a bunch of different commissions at the start of the month, along with a full-time job, and that left little time to do something for myself or to just relax. Even after all the digital illustrations, it was tough for me to sit-down and start illustrating again at my desk. By Christmas Eve I had built my new desk, which really inspired me to draw like crazy!

November saw a lot of drawing on a tablet since I was trying to expand my skills in digital-only illustration. Other than that, I had a few designs and went on a trip.

Creative 365: Best of October

Ah, October! A month of horror and terror, and ripe for inspiration for pieces based on darkness and evil! The focus here was on Graphic Design above all else, and I started experimenting a bit with layouts. And with the government shutdown in full effect, a lot of the designs wound up being fairly political. On a whole, it was a fun month!

Creative 365: Best of August

August wound up being a very odd month. While still doing what I could creatively, the month wound up leading to a rush for my art show, which I needed to get together in only 2 weeks!

Creative 365: The Best of June

June was a month of design risks and challenges, and a massive revelation about government surveillance that shocked and amazed me and made me mad. The result? A mixed bag of political design work and exercises in design. I had an idea for a zine that I may develop.

It was a month of experimentation and pushing new limits. We lost of Jeff Hanneman of Slayer, Philadelphia decided to install more cameras, and I decided to motivate myself to create some of the best work I’ve done to date.

I wound up attempting a redesign of Model Mayhem, experimenting with mixed-media, and a few typography exercises. All in all, it was a pretty solid month.

Creative 365: The Best of March

This month I saw my work grow and expand more than I thought. There wasn’t as much illustration as I would have liked, but the graphic design and photography I did are among some of my best! There were a lot of bad days, but the work doesn’t reflect it. In fact, in a lot of cases, it overcame them.

If there is one lesson to be learned, it’s this: Drawn even when you hate it, design even if you wish you didn’t have to, and capture every moment you can.

My Minimalist Movie Posters

Every once in a while, I’ll sit at my desk, not sure what to do for a design project, and I’ll look over at my DVD collection next to me. The first one I did was for Office Space, and my favorite would be the one for Airheads. It’s always interesting to try and think of a central theme or item from a movie that helps everyone to either understand the point of the movie, and bring about some nostalgia about it. Largely because of the later is the reason I try not to do a lot. Nostalgia is awesome, but moving ahead is better.

So sit back, enjoy these posters, and remember how much you enjoyed these movies before, and will enjoy them again!

My Modern Propaganda Posters

I love doing Propaganda posters. In the past few years, I’ve done some from faux-propaganda to real posters for real events to help gain support for a cause.

The one thing that I usually do is go for a more “classic” look, with a focus on Art-Deco, Constructionism, and Art-Nouveau styles. This time, I decided to just go a completely different route and focus on more modern design techniques. There wasn’t a set agenda; I just wanted to do something different. If something came to mind, I would do a poster on it.

I wound up doing one based on my feelings about how marketers treat and use modern social networking and treat it, and in the turn the people who use it, as a commodity. Another one made fun of the “going green” movement, another on how the Great Recession is only over for the rich, and finally I did one during Rand Paul’s Filibuster.
