DIGITAL DRAWING – Turned Yellow Application

I had the opportunity to apply for a company who illustrates people in a particular style. If you don’t know what style this is, then I don’t know how to respond to that!

I used Illustrator at first but then moved to Photoshop because the brush tool is more manageable. I could have done better, but it was 3am and I was getting light headed.

I didn’t get the job, but I did have fun. Also, there’s no reason behind the personality I used as my reference. Don’t troll me!

SHIRT DESIGN – I Serve Because I Love

I enjoyed doing this project for a Canadian client of mine because it reflected a piece of my core belief. I am not just a freelance artist, I am also a full time Christian. My driving force in serving, whether in freelance art or in my regular work, is LOVE! The kind of love that is unconditional in nature.

My first concept involved 2 scribbled hands holding each other just above the wrist. I wanted to show a strong bond between two people. I used 2 colors in this piece. The yellow green hand on top signifies the helping hand while the white one below signifies the need for help. The rugged style showed the imperfection of people. The verse was given by the client along with the main words to be spread across the shirt.

The client want a more cleaner look and because it would be harder to prep silk screens with textured elements (harder but not impossible). Eventually, the client told me to scrap the whole hand thing and told me exactly what he wanted! hence, the 1st picture!

Weeeeellll, I’m not mad how it turned out. All in all, the client is still my boss, I got paid, and I enjoyed pushing myself to the limits of my creativity.
