This video really helped me learn how to paint hair on a Wacom tablet. Hair is one of the most complex and difficult things to paint, and for my first project, it really terrified me. I put it off until the end, and without this unique approach, I don’t believe I would have been able to get my hair to look as I desired.
This was made for the cover of the program of The Actor’s Charitable Theatre’s Summer Camp. It has the spiral to signify the "down the rabbit hole" as well as an illusion that Alice In Wonderland is filled with.
Here I created my own emoji in Adobe Illustrator
Here is an update to my sister’s graduation picture. I am currently in the process of fixing the shading around the eyes and the mouth.
I created this poster for The ACT’s production of In The Heights. It was the first poster I created using purely shapes to build with. I am especially proud of the bridge, as I had to draw and warp each line. It was very time-consuming, but I am pleased with the final product.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves.”
I consider myself a clean person. I pick up after myself, and I dust on a regular basis. I don’t consider putting dishes away chores. I just think of it as organizing my things, which lessens my stress-level. But one thing I cannot stand to do is laundry. Cleaning them isn’t necessarily a big deal, but folding them. I put off laundry until I have absolutely no clean clothes, letting my hamper overflow, because I dread having to fold them afterwards.
I don’t know why it bothers me so much. I’ll spend an hour sweeping, mopping, and tidying up my living room at least once a week just because I’m bored. But I will not do my laundry. Or, if I decide I have to do it, I’ll put off folding them. I’ve made it a rule to always put my clean clothes on my bed so I am forced to fold them before I go to sleep.
I suppose it may be because of the monotony of it. Having to do the same movements over and over every 10 seconds is something that would drive me insane. I hate monotony. And I’m a very spontaneous person (example: when I decide to go take my dog for a walk instead of fold the clothes on my bed). It also may be because I know that however much I try, I will not be able to fold each and every shirt the exact same way. I’m a perfectionist. I like my lines parallel and distributed equally. I like my circles perfect and right angles are calming to look at.
Whatever causes it, I can’t fold clothes without getting stressed. It’s a funny thing. And maybe one day I’ll get over it. But it’s been 20 years, and I still hate it from when I was 5 years old.
I created these two posters for The Actor’s Charitable Theatre’s dinner theatre fundraiser. I designed it to look like it was for a traditional gospel show. For more information on The ACT click here.
This logo was created for The Actor’s Charitable Theatre’s production of Steel Magnolias. This was my first character creation I made from scratch. This is part of a series I did for this current season that has square dimensions and minimalist design.
