Firstly, I’d like to say a BIG “Thank You!” to everyone who voted, commented and shared my hammerheads sock design for the Sock It To Me, design a sock contest. I was overwhelmed by all the support! Unfortunately I didn’t win, yet I came 8th out of 11,000 which is pretty good going! (better than last year!) … and I think more than likely will be entering again next year!!
It’s Uppercase magazine 10th year anniversary and I’ve designed a front cover. Here’s my design, which is based on art materials. I tend to use Procreate more these days, although I still like traditional mediums, such as paint and pencil which I sometimes use within my artwork. Procreate has lots of awesome drawing tools and it’s quick, but I still love the look of natural paint strokes and textures you can create with gouache and pencils. I’m still experimenting with digital tools that will achieve the same effect as the hand drawn look!
Here is my magazine cover submission.
Uppercase 10th year anniversary
I wanted to create a cover that represents my style and to demonstrate my love of colour. I love pink, which sits perfectly with lilacs, blues, warm yellows and contrasting greens. I’ve also been mixing thing up lately, initially drawing in Procreate, then polishing my designs in Photoshop, to adding finer details in Illustrator. I used all three resources for the Uppercase 10th year anniversary magazine cover deign.
