My christmas designs, printed :D

My Christmas designs arrived and I am really happy with the result. I decided on the four final designs from all of your help, and what I liked too. Plus, I decided to have a notepad and stickers made. Even though the notepad is not really ‘Christmas related‘ it has to make an appearance. I…

Stepping back into web design

I haven’t created my own website design for a long time.

I basically opened Illustrator with the intention of creating an artwork, but I wasn’t sure what. I found myself sketching the head, then kind of fell into a morbid/depressed character. I kept the character dark, but I also wanted to include something that would signal hope, but seem completely out of place with the image,…
