One week left till the show! aka crunchtime. aka madness. I haven’t been posting a lot on here, mostly because I’ve been working and studying and things like that. I can’t guarantee that I will post a lot more between now and the show, but I will make sure to tie up loose ends and post pictures of the final products/the show. as of now I have finished silkscreening all of the...
15 day countdown
I have spent the last week and half sorting through and editing photos from the two shoots & then designing the photos/text into a lookbook of sorts. It basically showcases the products (apparel/accessories) that I have made. Tonight I have finished the booklet! which is pretty exciting. The following post will include some screenshots of my favorite spreads. enjoy! -j

photos on photos on photos
yesterday we (jo, luci, 2 models, and me) did two photoshoots. the photos came out just as I imagined/hoped they would. I don’t want to spoil anything but I did want to give a huge huge thank you to everyone who helped out. and maybe perhaps a tiny sneak preview (unedited and compressed- just a heads up).
my pieces project haz a lot of pieces. #womp. started mocking up a website. very very beginning stages of an interface. thinking about a lot of things but figured I would post where I am starting/what it would look like in a browser. this will be changing a ton.
ran my first prints tonight and also ran into quite a few problems. I realized that I needed to brush up on my silkscreening skills because I forgot so many little details of things that make the process go smoothly. But I guess there’s always the initial first attempt when everything goes wrong that can go wrong. By the end I think I got the hang of it and started to feel more confident....
Just about finished up my illustrations, as featured in my last post. Everythings digitized and colored; there are 6 in total and I’m totally pumped about each one. I’ve started prototyping what the designs will look like on tshirts & I’ve also taken apart some of the shapes I used in the illustrations and I am playing around with the idea of using individual shapes in a more...
I’ve spent a lot of time sketching this past week in attempts to turn out as many ideas as possible for illustrations that will be silkscreened on to products. I have developed a few good ones that I’m beginning to scan into the computer and fix up as illustrator files, but I still have a bunch that need work. I’m finding more and more inspiration from patterns and products every...
and I shall name thee, 1/2 Full.
Tuesday was my first in-class review for my project. I basically outlined a lot of what I have written about (what the project is, why im doing it, my audience, etc.). I also included some new research I’ve done concerning what is already out there, what separates my brand from the stuff that is already out there, and some of my inspiration behind the project. Since Tuesday, I have started...
objective: to create an independent graphic illustration company that sells apparel, prints, and accessories. The brand will be based on the use of very simple geometric shapes and solid bright colors, and will have a hand drawn style that exerts a fun and outgoing personality. the reasoning: I want to create a brand that mirrors my ideal outlook on life as a result of past experiences....
silkscreening & geometric shapes
Last semester I initiated an independent study in silkscreening. I originally hoped it would allow me to continue learning about the art, while I also hoped that it would give me the opportunity to do a project that was self defined and interesting to me and my personal aspirations. Well, I did learn a whole lot about silkscreening. In fact, thanks to some awesome people I learned pretty much...
