This week as part of art class, my 7 year old daughter and I designed a logo for tacos together. 🌮. I wanted to show her how to develop an idea from a little rough scribble to something finished through iteration. 📝. So we started with a little post it sketch then I had her draw a big version of the taco and lettering. I had her do a second version of the lettering, putting down some guidelines first. 🔤. Then I broke out the tracing paper and used her taco and letters as the guide to draw something a little more polished. We talked about characterizing it by giving it a face. She wanted to add the speech bubble. 🎨. Then I showed her how to scan that in and use illustrator to vectorize it and add color layers. 🌈. Here is the finished version with my color pallet choices. She didn’t finish hers yet. 🤷‍♂️. We learned alot and had fun in the process.

This quote came from my darling wife @aniliaj who loves nothing more than lying in bed reading books, eating croissants and drinking coffee. 🥐 ☕. The other things are just so hard some days. Especially now. 😩. Here’s hoping you find the strength to accomplish anything on your list today. 🏅. Swipe right for process vid 👉. #typespire #typespiration #typegang

Asheville Fauxsaic

I decided to try my hand at one of these 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.Riding away from Asheville, I had some time to kill on a bus ride to visit some family

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.

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. ♥️
