Well hello again everybody! It’s been too long between posts so I’m going to try my damnedest to get two of them up and written today.
I recently started interning at CoPilot Creative and have really been enjoying it. I honestly had to think long and hard about whether or not I wanted to take an unpaid internship, but in the end I decided the experience and free lunches were worth it. The very first day I was doing things that I would have never done on my own, liking making banner ads,editing large brochures in Indesign, and creating Ebooks.
On Tuesday, Austin shot me an email from a lady at the Colorado Springs Independent who was looking for a part time graphic designer to help with ad layout through the end of the month.
By the end of the day I had myself a job at the newspaper! I’m pretty damn excited to be quite honest.
I mean come on!
I’m also getting quite good at making Thai food in the wok, as you can see by the Pad Se Ew pictured above. Protip: The trick to getting authentic tasting Pad Se Ew is to really crisp the noodles. You want to get a nice toasty flavor on everything.
We had Fixer Creative over for lunch one Sunday. It was lovely and we’re looking forward having lunch with them again.
I’ve wanted to do an art piece like this for quite some time and I finally got around to doing an early sketch. Looks pretty good eh?
I’ve been working with markers more as a start for later illustration work. See the following.
You seeing those handsome mugs? I’m thinking of doing a series of marker drawings of album covers that I like.
I’m working on developing a style that I like. It’s always a work in progress.
Paper is fun/frustrating with its color limitations. You have to mix colors and pens to get the desired colors. Notice how I made two different purples by using the wash with a white pen stroke and a purple pen stroke.
Ok. That’s about it for now. Catch you on the flip side (later)
