Because Purple is So In!

Just finished this motion piece for the Washington University in St. Louis branch of Relay for Life. The concept is "Why do You Relay?" Visually I wanted this motion to be a type based piece which is quite a change of pace for me considering I tend to avoid type. I also wanted to convey the idea of the track that Relay physically takes place on. My goal was to suggest the the idea of the track by using the white lines as a means of transition. Then as the motion progressed it became more and more clear what the lines represented. I think it worked out well and I have to say that doing precise storyboards helped me a great deal in not only the planning but the final product. Please join Relay for Life and help in the fight against Cancer.

WUPR Illustrations

Hi all, so yet again it's been a while since my last post. Things have been picking up with the softball season starting, first game in two weeks, but I do have a few new things. I did these two illustration for our political magazine on campus. This issue like many other magazines was titled "A Year in Review." I did two illustrations this time, one about the launch of the i-phone and the second about the 2000 presidential elections. I took this chance to work on likenesses. I think it went well though I would like to work on pushing the envelope more next time.
