In my previous blog post, I discussed my main long-term goal as a designer and illustrator. Here, I will be discussing a couple of my general design interest with some of my more recent work as examples.
I’m sure this is a bit redundant at this point, but I really enjoy making illustrations, both in general and for the purpose of adding it to apparel and other merchandise.
The images above show one of my most recent digital illustrations. If you’re Christian or have listened to Christian music in the past, you probably know what song I’m riffing off of here. I had the sketch for this sitting in my sketchbook for a long time but I’m glad I finally worked on it. This was a lot of fun to make, and I like how it turned out. (If you’re interested in having this as a T-shirt or sticker, I have a Redbubble shop @ leviathancrow.)
I also quite enjoy designing logos and working on branding guides and materials. I’m not going to lie, part of it is because depending on the project, I might possibly have the opportunity to include illustration work as a part of the logo. I am aware of how clichéd this sounds, but I also enjoy the problem-solving aspect of it too.
The idea for the project featured above was to create a logo for a hypothetical company that fit my tongue-in-cheek style and interests. I settled on a satanic-themed edibles company called Devilish Delights. This went through a lot of iterations throughout the entire process, and I’m presenting the final versions of the ones I liked here. My favorite part of working on this logo was coming up with the way the goat merges in and out of the cannabis leaf, especially where the bottom of the neck ends. I also think the texture I added to it works quite well.
