Cut Paper Creation
Well, I’ve been seeing cut paper art for a while now. I was commissioned to make a sign and thought this would be a cool way to do it. The group I made this for was looking for a pretty artsy, less professional looking sign so I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try it out for myself.
NEW POSTER DESIGN: Arkansas Printmakers Collective
I have been terribly bad at posting any of the work I have done so far this semester while working in the Marketing & Communications Department at Hendrix College. This is the first poster I’ve shared even though I must have created at least a dozen posters in addition some brochures, ads, and other elements.
Anyway, the Arkansas Printmaking Collective exhibit looks really cool. I tried to have the poster portray some of the major printmaking aspects like inking and the sort of stamp-like feel.
Jen and Omar from These are Things created their new series of European city maps. Inspired by an old European road-trip guidebook, they decided to apply their modern, graphic style to each city’s historic landmarks. With prints for Athens, Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris and Rome, the full set ($199 for six or $39 each) is a creative way to celebrate beautiful cities you’ve visited or maybe inspire a trip to visit them one day.
NEW POSTER for HENDRIX.
Here is a poster for a trio doing a clarinet recital. “DDG”—what’s it mean?! Well I asked everyone in my office, we weren’t sure. So, I went straight to the source: the Music Department who commissioned the piece. They don’t know what it stands for! Odd.
Anyway, here is the new 11x17 poster I did for the “DDG Trio” recital!
These are some prints that I made in Adobe Illustrator. Both are supposed to be the same theme, in a way. I intended to portray a sense of “living better.” The first one is living better day to day personally, by being healthy. The second one really is just being aware of less developed places in the world, and people who are forced to deal with things like poverty, warfare, and a lack of resources.
