Hey my readers!
This past month has been a bit of a struggle but I’m working through it. Basically, I keep telling myself: Shit happens. But life goes on.
In the last few days I heard some pretty exciting news and would like to share them with you.
Last week, I submitted an application form for the Cityfest Artwalk, part of a festival that’s happening August 23 in Toronto. I found out that my work is good enough to be part of the Artwalk, so now I’m super excited!!

Today I had the great opportunity to take a trip to Toronto’s new Aquarium :)
I eagerly charged up my camera and shot some videos; here is what I saw with a special someone :)
This past Wednesday was December 25 aka Christmas; probably the one day a year that I can ask for anything that I want. In all honesty, I had a difficult time deciding on the gifts I wanted to receive from my family, mainly because I was pretty content with what I already had. Finally, I crafted a short list of items, including a Wacom Inkling.
What is an Inkling you ask?
Just watch this video:
Pretty cool right?
Well, on Christmas, this is one of the gifts I got from my family and it is quite INCREDIBLE!!!
Here’s the step by step of how it works:
Food Porn is back!
Yes, I am returning to the project i was planning on doing during the summer but completely forgot to do… NOW I HAVE AN EXCUSE TO ACTUALLY FINISH IT!!!!!!!!
In my Typography class this semester, we have been making books, and we were assigned our final book, which is intended to combine the parts of the first two books into something more interesting. The intention is to create a book that, on the surface, appears to be about another topic entirely, but is actually about typography. My professor, Christopher Moorehead, commented that each year he receives a type of pornographic book. Upon hearing this, my friend Marty and I decided that we would each make a porno! Marty is making his about 50s pin-up girls and me… I’m doing FOOD PORN!
Here are a few of the spreads I have made so far for the book:
I am just now realizing how many projects I have promised to work on, and how many I’ve forgotten to work on…
BUT THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!!!
Sweet Drops is a “Candy Brand” I created. With this, I wanted to practice package design, logo design, branding, all it takes to make a product. So far, I have made the logo design that I really really like!
I also made a colour palette of logo colours to use:
Now, I’m focusing on the packaging of the “candy”. Maybe, I’ll make the actual candy or sweets… WE SHALL SEE!!!!
Any comments/feedback are always welcome so don’t be shy :)
Lately, I’ve been spending a good chunk of my Internet time on behance.net, a website for people to showcase and discover creative work. It’s a great website for designers who want recognition in their work from other people for potential jobs. Obviously, I signed up so I can get more exposure to other people’s successful work. For example, I started following andersdenkend, a graphic and editorial design company based in Germany. Some of the projects on the profile include:
This project really interested me because I quite like the style of the work. Therefore, I decided to experiment in Adobe Illustrator and I came up with this:
Remember, inspiration can come from anywhere, so embrace it while you can :)
