Storybook Characters

Story Characters

I was asked to help illustrate a story book as a gift for someone leaving an organization, and this is one of the model sheets I made up for the different support characters.  Overall, I think the book did a good job humorously capturing the many feats of this beloved colleague.

I did the initial sketches on paper and in Krita, but the finished art was done all in Inkscape.  I built the characters as interchangeable parts for consistency across the pages and to speed things up.  I ended up having to recreate so many different hands and arm/leg positions that I don’t know if it really made anything faster, but they definitely looked the same throughout.

Staining Die Numbers

Staining Die Numbers

I got a custom request through etsy to make an icosahedron and stain the numbers on it for a young couple.  That whole process was quite a bit of work, but I think it came out nicely.  Haven’t heard back from them yet, but I really hope they like it.

Wayfaring Sign

Wayfaring Sign

I was asked to make a two sided wayfaring sign for a friend’s work which was a new challenge for me.  I decided to do the graphics on foam board, and sandwich it between two pieces of plexiglass in a custom frame.  I also drew the crazy looking duck for them.

Custom Sized Frame

Picture Letter Frame

A family friend had one of those picture letter things made for their family but could never find a frame it would fit in.  So I just made her one.

Justin Timberlake Poster

Justin timberlake

One of our good friends with an unhealthy obsession for Justin Timberlake, bacon, Pennsylvania, and beer asked me to draw up a poster for her.  This was the linework I came up with, and then added many more elements around it.  Her mug was in the photo frame.

Making a Beer Light

Beer Light

I got to build a “Beer Light” for a local organization, so the boss could signal the end of the day and a time to have some camaraderie.  It has two different designs, alternating every other side.  The light inside is a CFL, so it shouldn’t get too hot, and I left a 1/8″ gap at the top to let out heat.

Toothless Door Decal

This a an idea I’m working on for a friend of my wife’s.  Her little daughter is a big fan of How to Train Your Dragon and quite the firecracker.  She wanted a decal to go on her bedroom door.

Here’s what I eventually rendered in mypaint and inkscape.  Will be cutting out in vinyl.

Teen Titans – Etsy Commission

Night Begins to Shine Finished

Night Begins to Shine Finished

It’s been a long time since I posted anything, lots of projects on the side.  This was a commission I got through Etsy for the whole Teen Titans crew in the same style as one of my Inktober doodles. I didn’t want to post this until it was mailed and received by the customer.

Tennessee Decals

Tennessee Home

Tennessee Home

Last post for the weekend, I made some more state shaped Home stickers on a 1′ x 2′ sheet of vinyl I had.  Designed in Inkscape and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Vinyl from here.

I’ve also added a new guardian to my desk to ensure my boys aren’t eating anything when they use my computer.  I’m worried what shenanigans these two might get into though when no one is looking.
