So, new year, new beginning! A lot of changes are in store this year that’s for sure! I’m actually working on reinventing myself and my brand. I’m not quite ready to reveal any details but you’ll be the first to know when it’s all done!
For the time being, I’d like to start sharing my design process more often. This is an elegant aqua and gold mood board I put together for a client that needs a new identity for her brand new photography business. She’s super talented and I’m super excited to be working with her!
I find creating mood boards a helpful part of the design process and a good way to make sure that you and the client are on the same page. Do any of you use mood boards?
Dear Miss Happy Robot Town, I am an aspiring artist who is graduating college and all I know is that I want to create happy and cheerful things in people's lives through design.However, I don't know where to start. I don't have any fancy schooling for art or know any snazzy programs-I've only been doodling my whole life. Do you have any advice for me?
Hi, person. Thanks for writing! I’ve always loved doodling as well but I am mostly a digital doodler and illustrator. My handmade skills are lacking. :/ I don’t think you really need fancy gadgets to do what you love and be successful. There are many places (like Etsy) where you can showcase and sell some handmade goods. Maybe that would be the best option for you??
If you do get those snazzy programs (I use Photoshop and Illustrator), there are TONS of tutorials online that are super helpful for learning basics and more. I’m self-taught but also went to art school which motivated me to learn more and teach myself more. I’m a firm believer that you can accomplish your goals if you try hard enough and never quit! :)
I’m not sure if I answered your question or helped at all. I don’t think I’m very good at giving advice hehe. Good luck with your future endeavors!
My cheesy advice made me think of “Sailor Moon Says” so I made a doodle… (post will follow).
I couldn’t be more excited! My original idea was fun but after reading their Facebook event description I realized I haven’t based any of my passed entries on actual toys I loved as a kid. I don’t want to give it away just yet but there will be toy customization/sculpting/painting involved and I can’t wait to get started! You’ll have to stay tuned to see process shots for any hints of what I’m making. *off to make a Flickr account*
Here’s my entry of that assignment I posted about a while ago along with the other amazing entries. I wanted to make mine costumes of a bunch of my favorite movies but I only got the chance to do two: Ghostbusters and Dracula. :) I’ve never really made paper dolls before so I’m not too sure how good/easy this would be to cut out and put together. But feel free to do so and send me pictures if you do XD
Honestly, I think mine was a little overkill :x Oh well haha. I had fun! I want to make it into a flash game later with a few more costumes. It will be a little late for halloween but I really want to do a fun collab with my boyfriend. Can’t wait!
