These are works which I have created throughout my years as a designer. I often draw inspiration from my own interests and the communities which I am in. Most of these pieces were done for fun in my free time. All of these pieces were made using vectors.
These pieces were created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
MARRY ME, NIGHTMARE
ANIME STYLE In these vectorized anime illustrations, I have used Adobe Illustrator to draw characters I like from games as well as my own original character. The first two drawings of D.VA from Overwatch and Akali from League of Legends were done because I like the aesthetic of both of those characters. The third illustration, the original character, takes inspiration from a song, Marry me, Nightmare, by t-pazolite. I used that song as inspiration to imagine what sort of character that song would be about.
GOBLIN NEEDS A JOBLIN
PERSONAL STYLE These two pieces are examples of my own personal style. I like to work using the pathfinder tool in illustrator to combine circles and squares, round their corners, and completely transform the shapes into new ones. I think it's a lot of fun to combine shapes in these ways and just go where I think feels right. These are illustrations of two phrases which I thought would be cool to visually represent in my own style. The phrase "Goblin needs a Joblin" comes from how my friend described herself during her job search. As for "Catfish," one of my other friends thought it would be a fun challenge for me to draw.
PERSONAL STYLE My inspiration for trying this abstract style came from a newfound obsession with Wassily Kandinsky during my sophomore year. During my Renaissance to modern art history class, I was fascinated by all of the Bauhaus designers but I really fell for Kandinsky. I thought his philosophy behind shape and color was so interesting. My favorite works of his are White Point (1923), Circles in a Circle (1923), and Black and Violet (1923). I thought that it would be cool to try to represent animal characters in a style similar to his. The first drawing is of Prinny from Disgaea while the second is of a hippo being bullied by his oxpecker coworker. Even though in this illustration the oxpecker is mean, in the wild, hippos and oxpeckers have a symbiotic relationship.
