Poster and Book Cover Art

Catherine's movie poster for Photoshop 1, Professor Victoria Martin

This week I am sharing the work of Catherine who is an incredible artist, designer and photographer. This lady has it all. Her work ethic is incredible and the projects she submits are always top in the class. Great job Catherine, and I consider myself lucky to have had such a talent in my classroom.

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.

Salute to Ian M.

photoshop pieces created by Ian

These pieces were created by Ian, who is enrolled in my Photoshop 2 course here at Palm Beach State, Lake Worth. Each of these pieces is impeccable.

What makes them powerful is the use of scale to alter the way we view things. A shark fin becomes even scarier, and from a cave, a gigantic eyeball stares back at the viewer.

Well done, Ian, keep up the excellent work.

Shout Out Tammy U.

Professor Victoria Martin monoprint

I usually post images of digital design, but today I had to share this mono-print created in my Digital Imagery for the Fine Artist class by Tammy U.
Tammy carved linocuts for her project (which were gorgeous), and she had a little scrap of linoleum left over. She inked that small 2 x 2-inch block and began hand printing onto a piece of tea-stained paper. The entire room began to chatter; they loved it, and so did I.
One of the things I love about teaching is seeing students discover new things and do them so well. Miss Tammy, I believe you have the makings of a very talented printmaker and abstract artist, as well. So good; keep up the excellent work.
