Hauoli Bar & Swill

I did this logo design for my Electronic Illustration class last year. It was done in Illustrator, and I dont have any work up yet of stuff done in that program, so heres something fun. I had fun trying to get a look of realism while still keeping it fairly flat. I also created the text myself, Its not a stock font, and Hauoli means Happy I believe in Hawaiian, Im not positive but thats what I was going for.

With all the time off I've had with school closed I have had some time to mess around with some photoshop work. This is my first real attempt at an animal, and using some textured brushes and stuff. I really like how easily you can get a fur texture with certain brushes. I want to do a few pieces in this style, let me know what you think. thanks.

Obama is done.

I finished up the Obama caricature, it was my first attempt at the c f payne technique. One picture is the full view, the other is a detail where you can see the tie and shirt and the little american flag pin a bit closer, which were my favorite part of it I think

The first assignment in humorous illustration this year is a caricature. So this is my Obama, its my color comp for the final piece which Im thinking about doing with an oil wash then colored pencil and paint and stuff. This is definintly my favorite assignment of the year so far and Ill post the final result when its finished. Also I did a couple other caricatures of different people before I decided on this on, so I may post those too, although I didn't think they were that great. Enjoy.
