Behind the scenes, and updates on current projects.
This blog is a place for me to document behind-the-scenes processes and projects. I love web design, animation, illustration and Craft!
I have been working on the first brief for both the Intermediate and Advanced tracks of the MIID Winter School and have enjoyed learning new techniques in Illustrator CC.
I had a specific technique in mind for the Intermediate and was glad to finally try it out! I photographed a range of different flowers and then used both the image trace and recolour artwork options in Adobe Illustrator CC to create a range of motifs within the specified palette for the brief.
Still looking for a calendar for 2018? The Squibble Design art calendar is now available with updated art and patterns for the coming year!
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you have all had a good holiday, I am back and ready to go!
I will be streaming my art projects on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and am currently working on an oil pinting of a Victorian bunny. I may also stream games eventually as I have quite a few drawing and art games.
Here is a timelapse video of my most recent stream, I will be working on this painting again on Thursday.Victorian Bunny Oil Painting Timelapse - Third Session from SquibbleDesign on www.twitch.tv
This month I am also enrolled in the MIID Winter design school, so I will be busy making patterns throughout January and February. I have already started on the briefs for the intermediate and advanced tracks, here is a sneak peek:
Finally, one of my goals for 2018 is to improve my digital painting. I love making graphics, but my actual digital painting skills are in need of drastic improvement! I have had a few breakthoughs recently, and have been trying out these Photoshop sketch brushes from Macalabs. I think with regular practice I should see good progress. I am posting progress photos on my instagram account and will do a round-up here when I have a few more under my belt!
Thank you for your support in 2017, bring on 2018!
I have moved all my Vlogs to my Twitch channel as unfortunately Vidme shut down at the end of last year. Here is the December Vlog!Watch Vlog December 2017 from SquibbleDesign on www.twitch.tv
Last weekend I finally walked top of Mt Vic, it was hard but worth when we got to the summit! We got there just in time before the clouds started to roll in, then walked all the way back down again. I was pretty tired by that point and we ended the day with an ice cream and a walk along the waterfront before heading home.
