Made a simple vector drawing from a photo I snapped a few weeks ago of redwood trees up in Mendocino. Variations on the colors.
Just found old biz cards I made with an old Epson color printer ( the best btw ) and then plastic laminated them at Kinkos ( remember them? ) photoshop collage of my drawings, paintings and Dover 😉 – heavy duty laminate. Hand cut.
Found some of the original artwork that I used for them which is below.
Just a few snaps of a mural, trompe l’oeil painting I made years ago for a decorator working on the interior of a luxury hotel in Kirkland, WA. – This one one of the penthouse suites that had 2 hidden closets behind my paintings. Literally had about 2.5 days to complete both and move on to the next. Fun times.
Pencil on paper, sketches of tree trunks. Done years ago. Posted also on my instagram.
I created these Package designs for Sephora, with 6 Disney Characters. Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Frozen (Elsa & Anna), Snow White. The work includes an illustration on the top of the compact lid, and then the entire box or package was thought out. They were available only on Sephora’s website and the downtown LA Disney store in Orange county, Anaheim.
I used a few existing stock Disney silhouette vector images for each, created the colors, package layouts, patterned backgrounds, the compact lid illustrations, font choices, entire box design.
When I had a painting and design business years ago I would draw designs out on velum or thin tracing paper and then transfer the image on to a canvas or wall – whatever surface it was painted on. I sometimes used transfer paper or rubbed graphite on the back of the drawing and then re-traced the image.
This is what other panels of the paintings looked liked in progress. The color images were scanned from older color prints. Pre-digital cameras.
