Playing with shapes



I made a quick thumbnail sketch of a woman in front of a black
background with just her clothes/gear being positive. This was
the result.



I like the different offbeat shapes that came from this. Also
based on a quick sketch, though this one is slightly different
than the one on my portfolio blog.

Book Cover test design


I had an idea of making a mini show book (6x7in) for
different blog artists, submitting work from their blogs to be shown in the book. I thought of making it a non-profit thing to hand out at comic cons and other shows, to give artists more exposure of their blogs & promote their work. I'd love to do something like that, or a mini artist magazine thing. I'm sure some artists would actually want to participate in something like that. Of course there's the question of funding for the books to be printed. Starting out might be an out of pocket thing unless I'm able to find help in some non-profit organizations arena. Just an idea anyway.



Originally the cover design started out as a project I was going to propose to Coca-Cola for an artistically stylized incentive booklet to give away to their customers to promote their products, but I decided against it. Below are some cover design tests I did in photoshop. It was fun though.





And here's a design I was planning to do for Hewlett Packard, but then I came to my senses. Just got carried away, just a little bit. But I like designing little booklets.

Storyboard style test



This is just one the first few panels of some thumbnails I made for a storyboard. I'm trying to work on a establishing style to help capture the look & feel while telling the story. I want to set up a way to accomplish that & still work quickly to move through the panels and get the story out.

DOMINIQUE REVUE: From Stage to Runway Fashion Show

Here are some photos I took of my friend's fashion show. It was phenomenal! Not only did she design the clothing, but choreographed the dancing as well. She mixed stage entertainment with her fashion show.


















This is a small clip from the beginning of the show. She did the whole choreography and is also the one dancing in white. All the models did an exceptional job.
Here's a link to her blog: http://www.dominiquerevue.blogspot.com/

Animated short commercial I did for the HP HDX Dragon Notebook Contest on HardwareGeeks.com

As a bonus in the contest you had to put together a video (commercial-like) advertising the laptop. The contest was almost over, so I made this overnight using only Adobe Photoshop and Premiere. It's really only a collection of quick drawings I did in Photoshop and edited in Premiere. The song is from the Johnnie Walker Fish commercial. It was a fun quick little project.

Cover Design for another self-published Graphic Novel



While jotting down plot points and other concepts on a sketch pad, I sketched a cover design in Photoshop for an idea I had of a dark toned story . I made this months ago, its just been sitting in the back of my head. I'm still working out story kinks for this while I put together my first children's graphic novel book.

Some brand new spankin character designs








Some new designs I did the past two days. I'm just trying out a different style. I really like the graphic angular look. I've been doing simple blocky shapes as a preview for a certain direction to go. It's been fun experiment.
