I live in the Pacific Northwest and have several bird feeders on my balcony. One of the frequent visitors is the Steller's Jay and they have a very distinctive look. They are also very vocal and seem to have a ton of personality. The mohawk of feathers they have on their heads reminds me of a series of steampunk-style tubes, almost as though the bird were steam powered. I think that could be very cool and thought I should create that version of the Jay. Here is one of my initial sketches of the bird. Please see here for the full project!
New steampunk project!
These are some projects I am looking into creating soon. This is just a cleaned up scan of my sketchbook, but since I am always drawing, it just makes sense to share!
Working in Illustrator
I have been learning Adobe Illustrator on my own using the help of books and internet tutorials. This is one of my first projects. I am enjoying the vector based project and the programs abilities, though I do love Photoshop still!
My next project is working on a logo for a new company. I will be using a limited color palette and will work on business cards once the logo is complete.
I have created my new business card! This is the front of the card. I usually like to include a QR code on the backs of my business cards so that you can find my portfolio or LinkedIn page easily, but I decided to use the back of the card to list my technical skills instead.
Portfolio Website created!
