Asheville Fauxsaic

Asheville Fauxsaic

I decided to try my hand at one of these #fauxsaics that have been catching my eye. Created in illustrator by making some patterns and brushes and then adding minor distortions and variations, then bringing into photoshop to dirty up and add lighting and feet. Bare feet seemed appropriate for #Asheville.

Riding away from Asheville, I had some time to kill on a bus ride to visit some family.

Typography Illustration on Father’s Day

Typography Illustration on Father’s Day

Sending out a little love this Father’s day.
❤️
Teaching our kids to choose love over hate, fear, tribalism, the list goes on and on, is a never ending labor of… Love.
💜
Thanks to the father figures in my life who’ve set the example and shown me love even when I was difficult. ♥️

Decided to do the #HOMwork challenge this week.

Decided to do the #HOMwork challenge this week.

Decided to do the #HOMwork challenge this week. Which was to do 16 versions of a letter. I chose H and did 6 capital and 6 lower. It was fun and challenging to come up with a different idea for each one. Good exercise. I needed a little at art challenge as a break from the business work.
Sometimes if I am experiencing a creative block I’ll try and just do something else. I find if I focus my attention on something different, then my subconscious can play with the challenge a little and I’ll often have a eureka moment of sorts. Sometimes the best way to find something is to stop looking for it so hard and then you can catch it out of the corner of your eye. ?️ @homsweethom @stefankunz

Graceful Exit

Graceful Exit

“Few men of action have been able to make a graceful exit at the appropriate time.” Malcolm Muggeridge

Today is my last day at Fastsigns. When one door closes, another door opens. I’ve decided it’s time for moving on to pursue new ventures and focusing on John Hornsby Creative full time.

He’s a picture I drew of Obama leaving the white house for the last time. And no I’m not comparing myself to him nor fastsigns to the White House.

I’m John Hornsby and I approve of this message.
