I created these images using Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator, using creative commons photographs, with the exception of the final picture, which uses my own photography and anonymous graffiti from local “writers”. Click on the image to see a larger version and the slideshow.
This was a logo for a dance troupe for graphic design. This is the second version; they wanted to emphasize diversity so I thought rainbow text against stars., as they go well with the feathers.
This was a logo type for graphic design; I chose Lex LUthors Lex Corp from the Superman comic books. There are three L’s for his initials.
This assignment for graphic design was for an e-book cover. I decided to make each side of the cook jacket illustrate a different poem from Tim Burton.
This was the first photo shop image I created for the MGD program. The assignment was to illustrate a riddle; I chose one of Gollums riddles from The Hobbit and felt a vampire fit the feel.
This was a composite image for my photography class; the graffiti is from rail cars. I think it goes well stylistically with the Wu-tang clan album cover so I decided to include it.
This was one of my cd covers for the Photoshop II final; it is for the Wu-Tang clans debut album.. I think it captures the bands unique aesthetic, the top lettering also makes it look more like a 70’s kung fu movie at a theater.
This was my midterm for Adobe Illustrator; it is a reproduction of a still of Major Motoko Kusanagi, from the Japanese animated film Ghost in the Shell.
This was a project for typography; it is a poster for the 1998 Ozzfest tour. The top two fonts are the actual fonts used by the bands; the rest stylistically match them as best I could.
This was a CD cover for my Photoshop II final project; it is for the early German techno band Kraftwerk; I used textures to give an 80’s Amiga computer more of a cyber punk crime scene feeling.
This was one of my first projects in Photoshop II, the objective was to adjust the colors; I really liked the contrast against the inorganic background; it feels very post apocalyptic and alien.
This was my first assignment for Photoshop II, the object was to make a self portrait that showed our inner world; I think the dark black and white background makes the otherwise muted colors in the foreground stand out a lot more.
This was my midterm for Adobe Photoshop; the objective was to create a cover for the weekly world news. I think the black and white really makes the lightning stand out much better and makes the gas mask and aeronautical silhouettes more ominous.
This was one of my CD covers for the Photoshop II final; for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. I think the rainbow stands out much better in space; as do the rest of the browns and greys.
This was an advertisement for my Photoshop II class; it was at the time of Day of the Dead; so I decided to do a coca cola advertisement that incorporated Spanish. I think the decorative patterns help with the dark subject matter. One of the objectives was to use a lot of negative space.
This was my favorite project for Photoshop II; the objective was to use only photo shop to illustrate an image. At first I hated the idea because illustrating is what illustrator is for; but I used the opportunity to experiment with type; flame, futuristic weapons and lighting. The fireman is Guy Montag, from Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
