A quick thank you for all the generous gifts to Quinn’s baptism.
Baby pause caused me to be a bit lazy with personal project. I totally forget how time consuming newborns are. After almost 5 months, I slowly get some personal time back. My fingers start itching for some design. There’s a small project for my lovely busband on the line, so stay tuned for an update. I hope it won’t take another 5 months 🙂 Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the only creative outlet I did in the last months: some birthday cards & packaging.
This month, I finished my final contribution to the Plunket Remuera newsletter, for now anyways. It’s been a fun little side project and I enjoyed doing some editorial illustrations. Here are some images from the latest newsletter issue. More after the jump.
Due to a short deadline, the illustrations of the latest newsletter from Plunket Remuera are intentionally a bit rough and “untidy”. That allowed me to save up on time while keeping a little bit of a painted look. These illustrations are done purely digitally. More images after the jump.
Last week, I watched the documentary film “Searching for Sugar Man”. And story, images and music still stuck in my head. Those posters are a little tribute to a moving and emotionally satisfying experience. If you haven’t seen this brilliant film yet: do it. It’s well worth it.
In those rare times when freelance jobs are slowed down and you suddenly find yourself with a bit of spare time on your hand, I saw smashing magazine’s poster competition and decided to contribute. Although both my submissions were under the best 35 selected entries (out of 150), they just fell short of getting a prize. But it was fun doing anyway.
