This was a calendar project for my Graphic Design studio class. It is an alternative way of recording time by the kinds of pills we take. These days everyone is either taking or has taken pills so I felt as though it was an experience many could relate to. In this case I changed the kind of prescription drugs one can take to kinds of small actions that we over look that influence our day. I had 3 pill options; One for pushing the snooze button, one for driving a car, and one for turning on the television. The left panel is instructions and side effects, the center is the calendar where you would take a sticker pill out of each pill bottle and stick it in the hand on the calendar to record the number of "pills" taken that day.
I came up with an idea of this character that had giant hands and came up with some situations for him. I think I might expand upon this idea later... just take it a little further... maybe a short illustrated story or a cleaned up bigger version.
I took these photos and printed them on some colored textured paper and painted over them. I think they turned out pretty neat. I have a couple of things out of my sketchbook I want to post up too... I like the pink car... someone's drunk behind the wheel.
This was a play poster for Illustration. Like the painted hand by itself... It was around halloween so I was inspired to pick a vampire play. The play was short and a little strange. But love is torn apart, brought together, and self sacrifice from demons... The Vampire dies in the end by a sword through the heart...
Alright, this whole posting thing is new to me. I want to show people who might be interested in what I've done and and what I am doing with Graphic Design and such. I have a facebook and I've had a Myspace but I think this may be hard for me, but it's too early to tell. Well I suppose one has to start somewhere. I had a project to do a caricature and combine that celebrity with an animal. This is what I chose... Can you guess who?
