Something I've worked on that I can finally share with the world (only after 2 years of when it was originally worked on :D). This should be quite a fun range, cause one's supposed to break Guinness World records playing with each item :]
I't is a little side project of mine and a collaboration with an awesome illustrator, Sasha. I hope to post way more related stuff near in the future. Including projection visuals, character designs ect. :]
My attempt at fashion illustration! Recently I have stumbled upon this amazing Japanese street wear style, Decora (check out Phaidon's Fruits) . These dressed-up teens have some real attitude , too cool! :D I sketched up this bubbly girl! :] Here is the original reference:
I absolutely needed to post something, cause blog hasn't been updated for...a while. These are a few quick study drawings and sketches that I did recently. I'm pretty happy with these cause the aim was to practice drawing whilst on lunch break...
For these , I started with painting the portrait in black and white first. Then, really, just play with lots and lost of different brushes and colours . One particularly amazing brush was realistic charcoal , by artfus.
Here is a sequence of audiovisuals collection. I've been working on it throughout the winter for a couple of events. At
the moment I'm thinking how to integrate digital painting too... I'll share
some test results at some point I think. Thanks for watching (:]
Cycling to work everyday made me appreciate
bicycles. I find myself wondering about cycling in general. I suppose
that's where the inspiration for this product comes from (and from here).
A though of a new type of ad boards, suited particularly to bicycle frames. It could serve for advertisement carried out by individuals (cyclists) and not by fat agencies. And you would probably want to promote something meaningful and relevant to you, like social ads or self-promotion...
Recently I went to Spielwarenmesse a toy fair in Nuremberg. I saw lots and lots of robot pets, they're definitely trending. Even the tamagotchi's making a return! But one's I took a note of were, Teksta puppy and Zoomer pup, which won the award for innovative toy.
I thought I'd give it a go at designing a more articulated robot dog. And as for the name, it is given after my beloved dog Munis, who sadly passed away very recently. It's in his image that I have based the character on: upbeat, bubbly and kiddy. Which he was to his very old days.
P.S. a thanks goes to Tom for encouragement to revisit the design (:]
And that's what little girls are made of! A nice little old rhyme, which inspired this one. I've been meaning for quite a while to attempt and design a fashion doll which was cuter than Bratzillas and with a bit more spice than Kawaii Crush. (:]
I thought a family portrait collage would be the best Christmas gift this year.
With this portrait collage I was aiming to achieve a strong contrast in light, painterly strokes and slightly exaggerated volumes so it does feel a bit stylized. The composition nods to the family tree, with my grandparents in the middle, their two daughters branching out with their families each side of their parents. Overall, it was a warm and intimate experience, drawing all of the loved ones and getting to know their face in minute detail :]
This time it is piece of work inspired by Secret Chiefs 3, Album Forms, Scorched Earth Saturnalia. I think the design feels grounded to that particular track, but let me know what you think if you give it a go:
