I’m messing around with triangles today.
Some Photoshop collages done on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It’s a bit too warm in the study; I’m listening to Suze Orman podcasts and poring over the endlessly fascinating Library of Congress photostream over at flickr.
I’ve been going through the Andrea Tomingas archives lately. Dug these two drawings up from the vertical files:
This one is a drawing of my friend’s awesome dog. I did this in around 2006 I think ? — I have to tell the archivist to keep better track. I did the drawing first in pencil on paper from a photograph, then I went over it in ink. The red and brown of the eyes were added in Photoshop.
This is another one done from a photograph. I did it in ink on paper, then colored and added texture in Photoshop. I took the photograph at the Nike Site in Los Angeles, which is a pretty and interesting place to hike to in LA.
I made a thank you card / happy new year card out of the circles and lines design I drew a couple weeks ago:
I did the original circles and lines drawing with ink on paper. I added the texture and color in Photoshop. The type is from the awesome family, Novecento, a few weights of which are free on myfonts.
These monsters hired me to do their portraits as New Year’s gifts to each other, which I thought was sweet. It seemed like the monsters might eat me for dinner, so I had to make their portraits a little more flattering than realistic. This went over really well and the monsters even jokingly mentioned that I might need new glasses. They winked at each other, which sent ooze flying.
These were done with pencil on paper. Color & texture done in Photoshop.
I had a birthday, guys! I’m 30 now, which means I’m officially an adult, which means that it’s perfectly acceptable for me to make thank you cards of kitties with kitty tails. I’m pretty sure this is a nice kitty with an evil kitty tail, but cats are so weird that you can’t really tell who is who. So I had a birthday, and this is the thank you card I made for people who were nice enough to remember me on my very special day.
I did this in pencil on paper, then I traced it in Illustrator and I colored it and added texture in Photoshop. The typeface is Le Havre Rounded.
