Despite usually posting on Sundays, I just HAD to share this with you guys. I’ve been taking an online ink painting class and tried my hand at practicing Chinese calligraphy. Here are some of my best characters. I’m very proud of them, but would love to get formal training from a real master at some point. Hope no actual Chinese viewers are shaking their heads. :P
At my old job a while back, I had to design some Christmas banners for a mall in NY. I’ll keep the exact locale on the down low, since I probably can’t upload the final version. These are the first drafts that got scrapped. I quite like how they turned out, and it’s a nice starting point for more detailed Illustrator work to follow.
Watercolor practice with some hipster studies. I usually try to use watercolor alone, but I have a lot more fun with pen + ink accents. Not to mention it looks better in this case. More of this type of work to come!
