I’m working on improving my After Effects skills! Take a look at my first attempt at using the fancy Rotobrush tool. For other newbs, Rotobrush allows you to seperate elements of the foreground from the background of a video. It’s quite popular for opening credits – e.g. the stunning beginning of Life of Pi.
I made myself a new desktop background with an adorable picture of my little sister in Hawaii. Perfect for brightening the impending finals week stress!
Another little graphic for The Daily Muse. Floral springyness all around!
Foodies run the world. Or at least restaurants. Little graphic project for The Daily Muse.
I’d like to think that given the right circumstances, Pinocchio would be a stand up guy.
Having a bit of fun with hand drawn letters.
This my cover for the latest issue of the Helena Vigilante. The cover story focuses on the experiences of vets coming home. I went with a modern collage feel, combining images of war, patriotism and soldiers with the images from home and Montana.
Fun fact: my little brother is hidden somewhere in this collage. :)
Mean Girls is probably the single most quotable, gif-able, and still relevant piece of pop culture from the mid-00s (I know, I know, not a competitive category). Thank you Tina Fey for writing the movie of a generation. Now that I’m finished gushing over the obviously brilliant, please enjoy my Mean Girls quote (belated) Valentines. You better send me one bee-yotch.
Created in Illustrator, printed out, and watercolored.
What can I say, I think beautifully presented ideas get all the attention? I’m currently learning how to use GIS, which for the non-GIS users in the crowd is basically manipulating information that is attached to GPS coordinates. I’m excited about the possibilities of the program, but a little disappointed by the lack of flexibility in design. I’m learning how to customize the map more now (as you can see above) but this was clearly a program designed for science kids, not design nerds.
To all you business professional valentine senders out there… feast your eyes. Or send them to your friends!
