Digital Imagery student Veronica

This post features Digital Imagery student Veronica. I love her paintings so much. They’re fresh and colorful. The  line quality and brush strokes are so lovely and loose. I love how they are feminine and goddess like.

I would totally buy one of these paintings. I am so impressed with your work Veronica, well done!

Jazz Postcard Student Project

My Graphic Design 2 class  is in it’s second week and the students already have two projects under their belts. Well done. One of the projects was a 6 x 9 postcard for a Jazz concert. And my students know to never come with just one version. 

Here are two created by Jen. During crit this first student (Jen) said that “she had never made an illustration in Adobe Illustrator before”.

 I am very proud of both of these students because they both stated that they felt they had a weaknesses in a particular area and wanted to challenge themselves to push their comfort levels and try something different. The card below was created by Monica who challenged herself to explore typography. She chose a serif typeface that she felt reflected NYC Jazz clubs. I really like how she rotated the type to echo the stem of the J. She also rotated the order of the word Jazz. Did you notice? When I think of Jazz I think of music that sort of skips all over the place. So the A being in the middle makes sense to me.  Two very different approaches and both successful in different ways.  Well done ladies.

Featured Student: Zaire

Professor Victoria Martin student work: Zaire

Today I would love to introduce you to another extremely talented student named Zaire. The image above was created in Photoshop 1 as his art history piece.

His influence was Japanese Urban Art and Anime. The colors glow. Check out the halo effect around the upper edge of the beast as he removes the skin from his bones. Sweet and really scary at the same time. 

I also really like the use of contrasting colors. Note the little green tinge around the eyeball. Well done Zaire. This week of Thanksgiving I am thankful to have such wonderful, talented students in my classroom. Thanks for making my job such a joy.
