skateboard mockups

These boards were the mock boards created for TI and lil wayne. It was a group effort of people at work particulary, Evan, Heather, Pete, John and Myself. We did a pretty good job considering it was all last minute.

Customizable Shoes by Zerlina Designs/ Tara Lim

Illustration Gifts

I've recently been doing illustrations as presents. It's been very good pratice for me in terms of colorization and also techniques in forming shapes to represent certain shadows on the face. Its a hike to get it done but as most things in design, the more you do it, the faster it gets.

Last week I worked on new designs. I thought they were pretty rad so i might as well blog about it. One is for wordpress and the other is for Mims. i had a pretty fun time doing the Mims designs. I'm satisfied with the outcome of the designs and I hope the clients are too.

So Today, I sold 6 Copies of this shirt! I was really psyched about it and it totally made my day! It's a good thing I set my royalties to 20 percent per product in the entire gallery. This is by far my best selling design. I hope to make more of it.

I guess that in every designer's life, there have been moments of rejection and struggles. I have had a couple of those and today is one of those days... but its what makes me a better designer. Over the years I have learned to deal with such situations-- work in the design industry, its about pleasing your clients. Well at least for graphic design. I recall that when i first started taking up art & graphic design, I mainly focused on finding what it is i feel expressing it through my work. I am still able to do this but channeled in a different way. In each piece of work i do, there's a little bit of me in it.I guess a big part of me misses being able to do art just for me and not for anyone else...

Well on the brighter side of the day, I got my fist sale on my stamps. I normally sell my tshirts pretty well. oh and Some of my other tees were also featured in certain categories of the zazzle site without any hookups :)

I had this idea that someday cake designers could start exemplifying their cake design digitally to help clients envision the cake for the special day- weddings, birthdays and cakes for every occasion.
I was given the opportunity to create posposals for colby caillat tshirt designs. I played around with the fonts to make them feel more colbiesque if there is such a word. I am still waiting to hear back from them but whether or not they like it, its a good addition to my portfolio pieces.

In addition, another project is the american idol finale tee that i also had heather jump on.. its mainly playing with the layout they have and the design elements that they have in their style guide... We are still waiting for approval but hopefully they'll end up liking something. that's all for now...

Celebrate Life Conference Flier

Something i created for the 2008 Conference. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out considering that a lot of text was involved in it and it just somehow came out naturally. It was a good exercise of what i used to do in layout and typography class.

Vagina Monologues T-Shirt Design

I haven't quite been able to write about what i have worked recently but here is a sample of something i worked on for a friend awhile back. They raised thousands of dollars selling these tees so rock on!

American Idol T-Shirt Designs

American Idol T-Shirts that evan and i worked on in 2 days are finally up and live in the official american idol store! All the hard work paid off... We ran into many speed bumps along the way but we've survived. It's a different feeling once you've seen all your work up and potentially to bbe worn my thousands of AI contestant fans out there.

Self illustration

Here is the latest illustration that i've done of myself. I have always wanted to draw myself in a somewhat artistic graphic way so here is it. It also has somewhat of a comical theme to it. It also despicts what i've been feeling lately-- I guess it's that feeling of still figuring out whats out there for me and what it takes to be that one great artist. I guess the awesome part of being an artist is we get to be ourselves and find ourselves within your work along the way.
