The digital age has changed art and design forever. It’s how my profession lives and thrives! Outside the realm of design, the artscape has been changed quite a lot. How do I mean? Let’s take a look at the world of digital painting as well as a little spotlight on an awesome artist and friend of mine, Keight Maclean.
Just recently, I was reading through my tweets and was stopped in my tracks by this one article about a guy named Ben Wilson who is an English artist from London. Now, that may not sound like anything too interesting, and that might be true. Until you consider the fact his favourite medium is “Paint on Gum stuck to sidewalk”. Yes, you read that right; he paints on that gross old gum stuck to sidewalks!
Printing. It doesn’t take a designer to tell you that printing is never easy—it sucks. As a designer, I have tons of things to get printed all the time and it’s always a struggle to find a good, high quality, reliable, and cheap printer. Not only have I found this, but also they even run a local office in my hometown, as well as Vancouver!
With my trip back to my home town of London Ontario, came some great chances to take more photos! I got together with an old friend, Anja, and spent an afternoon snapping some shots. It was really a pleasure working with her, even if she had her eyes closed in most shots! Here are the best of the bunch!
Ever since I started my Design-a-Day project, I’ve been getting more and more into illustration and ever since a friend of mine forced me onto Deviant Art, I’ve been seeing more and more of it. Just recently I’ve come across a really awesome artist who, looking back on my most recent designs, has been a bit of an influence to me. They go by the name of Galgard on dA and in real life, Kasidej.
