"We... are the Crystal Gems!"

These are part of a series I did of portraits of characters from Steven Universe, one of my favorite TV shows! It was a lot of fun drawing so many different body types.

The Most Happy Fella poster & other designs for YMTC

I created this illustration and poster design for YMTC Berkeley for their production of The Most Happy Fella. Above is the final version, and the basis for all the other graphics promoting the show. 

This show was particularly tricky for me, because I was rather turned off by the story of the show. I had trouble celebrating the main character and central romance. We went through way more drafts and looks than we usually do. So there are a few versions below that I love visually but didn't do enough to convey the story and feel of the show. I especially like the one directly below. The love letters give a hint of the story, but perhaps not enough of one. 

The whole thing was drawn digitally with my tablet and using shapes in Illustrator, to be printed as both 11"x17" posters and smaller postcards.

The above design was an iteration of another pretty but not-story-ful draft, below:

Here's one where I tried to bring in the people and the romance, but still note quite the right vibe:

Here I'm getting close. Can you tell I love decorative borders?

Awesöme Orchestra postcards

Closing out my series of belatedly shared design projects - here's a postcard I made last year for Awesöme Orchestra. Above are the 2 versions of the front that were printed, and below the back, which was the same for all of them. Really fun project for a great organization!

Website Design & Branding for YMTC

Here's another design project I'm posting a little belatedly - my design for YMTC's website. I also did a little branding work in that we're using the website color scheme and fonts on other materials, not just the site. Above is the mockup I created based on the wireframe I was provided, below is the color scheme along with the Google fonts used on the site. Check out the live site here!

Dog silhouette sketches

Watercolor and ink sketches and studies of doggies! Originals vary, but none are longer than 7" on their longest edge. Thinking about negative and positive space, the texture of pooling pigment, and keeping things simple.
