Typographic Portrait

typographic portrait

These pieces were created in Design Fundamentals where I teach the students Adobe Illustrator and how to think of and use typography in different ways. Mad Hatter was created by Angie.

The piece below was created by Marie. I absolutely love this piece, the color relationships, contrast and handling of type.

Immediately below is a typographic portrait completed by Heather. She used a photograph of her daughter to create a sweet illustration. My favorite thing is how she created the dandelions from W’s and T’s. I am always impressed with the incredibly talented students here at PBSC.

Character Design Illustrations

Book illustration by Anabel, for Professor Victoria Martin's Publication Design Course

The illustration above was created by Anabel for my Photoshop 1 class, Fall 23. The assignment involves students creating a character¬† design. This is Anabel’s portfolio cover page for the asisgnment. I blurred her last name for privacy concerns. The students illustrate a book cover and accompanying movie artwork. She’s incredibly talented and inspiring to all of those around her. As well as being a really nice person.

Hats off to the incredibly talented graphic design student Dot; who makes everything he does look effortless.

This piece is based on the Synergy Imagery assignment. Cool overlapping and blend options. This design demonstrates you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Just have a great concept, use high res images, and experiment with type and color.

Sara T: Photoshop 2

Today it’s all about Sara T. who is a talented graphic design student at Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth Campus. These pieces were created in Photoshop 2 where students were asked to create artwork to go on a card.

It could be a playing card, greeting card, or tarot card based on Astronomy or Astrology. Fun! Great work Sara. You have a very bright artistic future ahead of you if you keep up the good work.
