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.

Frida Brooch

Frida brooch by Victoria Rose Martin

Today I thought I would share a little pin/brooch I made (for a change). There are so many ways to be creative. This pin measures about 4.5 inches. A mini oil painting, embroidered, and beaded.

When I spend too much time on the computers I enjoy doing something that gets my hands dirty. And I like creating things for me, instead of clients.

I created a series of these brooches in honor of the 100th anniversary of women having the right to vote. There are people out there putting up hurdles to try and take that right away. Don’t  waste your right to vote. Don’t like the government? You really cannot complain if you do not vote.  Remember, some of our grandmothers died fighting for their rights.

Now go and make something you are passionate about.
