IF – Renewal

IF : Renewal

My first Illustration Friday entry of the year and my first ever ambigram! That's right ... flip it over and it reads the same :) If you've never looked into them before, there are some really amazing ambrigram logos and designers out there.

Since it was my first ambigram, it took a while to get right. I drew it on paper 3 times, then re-did it in Illustrator about 10 times. It still isn't perfect, but it seems pretty fun.

IF : Muddy
My entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme of "muddy" is pretty simple ... just some fun feet splashing in the mud. Since I haven't been carrying my sketchbook with me the last few weeks, I drew this as a quick sketch right in Illustrator, refined it here and then added a tiny bit of ...
IF : Blur
I decided that for this week's Illustration Friday theme of "blur" I would make this pretty Mac icon ... one, because it has been a while since I made an icon and I miss all 262,144 of those pixels and two, because when I think of blurred things, I immediately think the fuzzy color circles ...
