Compelling digital illustrations combine technique and inspiration. These illustrations were created while experimenting with Illustrator's vast toolkit and day dreaming about some of my favorite people and places.
The drawing of the house was a final exam in college, using illustration techniques to create a detailed/accurate drawing of my home. I live on an acreage with stunning views of the sky and wanted to capture the house as the sun sets behind it. I created the sun-rays and the shadows around the drawing bringing a depth to the illustration.
This drawing was created as a school assignment to illustrate a children's book cover featuring an animal. My story is called “The Wish”. It is about a lonely little fox who just has one wish….to have a friend. All aspects of the illustration were created using the pen tool, various brushes and shapes in Illustrator.
This illustrated poster was done completely in Illustrator. It was created as a school assignment to promote a fundraising event for a mobile zoo. The target audience is kids and parents. The color palette, cartoon nature of the illustration and fun typography represents the event well and appeals to families.
