Archive : Noonis aka toys

Meet the Noonis. I don't know why I never posted these, but I found them today in a box while searching for something else. I made them last fall out of found wood, model kit parts, and building blocks. The vector image below was the final color study that I threw together before painting the mash-up of parts I wood-glued up.

I wish I could remember all their names... (worst memory in the world here)

The purple guy in the study wasn't finished due to time constraints.

Closet Inventory : August 2010

I think it's safe to say I need a life.

Either way, I'm slowly catching up on these illustrations. In other news, there's a possibility that I might be leaving Texas, or maybe Austin still has some more surprises for me... Details to come in the near future.

Closet Inventory : July 2010

One fine July morning while waiting at work, I starting doodling as per the usual idle time. Hearts, type and pandas somehow led me to creating this idea of illustrating my daily work outfit. No big deal, right? This sparked another challenge: how long could I go without repeating an entire outfit? So far, I've been going strong since June 7th. Sadly, I only started this project July 13th, so there's a good chunk missing.

I have some of August started, but so far its only living in its pen drawing form for the moment. I'm going to figure out what to do with these soon enough...

Process : Identity

Sketchbook : Credits

Updated credits for the sketchbook section

This is a little something I made back in March at the request of my friend David, who happened to be working on updating the Ringling catalog. I haven't seen the finished product, but I hope to get a hold of the new catalog asap. Oh, and by the way, one of my sketchbook drawing/paintings is in there. Look for this lady:

Test : Carter's

C arter's came to Ringling a few weeks ago, and with the rush of preparing for the senior show, I completely missed all on campus recruiters that came that week. A friend passed me the contact info and within a day or two I got the test.

Senior Show : Paper Fun

My senior show was this past Friday (April 30), and my table mate Jessica and I decided to do a collaborative effort for our wall space. Yeah, I could've put up all the posters I've designed, but that's no fun. We had been talking about it for weeks and had been sending inspiration back and forth. However, this endeavor was actually conceived and executed the night before. Discussions, sketches, cutting, quick stops for food, and Kinko's were all done within an eight hour time span. I couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime, or a better result. I hope everyone who saw it enjoyed it just as much as we enjoyed making it.

Icons : GOOD

These are some icons I designed for a group project for GOOD Magazine. I chose to be part of this collaborative effort over doing a 10 pg paper. I'd say this was the better choice. The aim is to do a mini guerrilla campaign to make people aware of their water usage and how important it is to conserve it.
After collecting all the data, this was just how I visualized it in my head...

(from left to right - top to bottom)
1. 70% of an adult’s body is made up of water.
2. 84 gallons of water are used per person a day in Sarasota County alone.
3. The largest desalination plant in the US is located in Tampa. (It costs $3.06/1000 gal)
4. A drip from a faucet can waste up to 19.81 gallons a day.
5. Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water is readily available for direct human use.
6. Freshwater animals are disappearing 5 times faster than land animals.
7. 1/4 of the world’s population is without safe drinking water.
8. Humans use an average of 50 gallons of water a day.
9. Americans use 5 times more the amount of water than Europeans use.

Zine : Raw

This semester's graphic design class this semester = chill. We were given a list of projects to choose from, and from there you design what you want/whatever you feel would improve your portfolio. First on my list was this:

An abundance of front line fashion, music and design with added insolence, always for model citizens...

This pretty much sums up everything I'm into, so I decided to make a high end zine. With the assistance of the wonderful photographer Hadar Pitchon, I was provided with the means to make what I had always wanted to. This will be a limited run of 20, which I do not currently have printed, but they will be available at my Senior Portfolio show April 30. And so, without further ado, I reveal a few of my favorite spreads from Raw:

Made up of Japanese brush pen, paint on glass, paper cut-outs, graphite, ball point pen, charcoal, conte crayon, watercolor, markers, and anything else I could find in my stash of art stuff. All drawings and type by me (of course).

Random : Poster

Last semester there were a lot of random projects– this being one of them. I wasn't too pleased with the poster this became, but the image is somewhat nice. I had fun making it at least.
