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.

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.

I had so much fun last year, that I decided to enter again for this year’s Sock It To Me, design a sock contest. Last year, I created a Fennec fox sock design and I came seventeenth out of six thousand, which was pretty good!

I’d like to share with you my five design entries in this blog post and I’d also like to announce that I’ve been selected again …WHOOP WHOOP! This year, there were over eleven thousand entries and here is my Sock It To Me sock design 2018, chosen as part of their thirty finalists.

I thought I’d use some of the icons created from the 100 day project, which would fit perfectly with their current ranges. Sock It To Me chose my Hammerheads design and I think it would suit either a male or female customer i.e. the colours and sharks are gender neutral.

For the other designs, again I used ocean themed icons, as well as a cute Angel & Fairy cakes and a badger at night design. All are quite quirky and fun, which is what you want on socks right?

Here are my other sock designs

…and here is again my selected Hammerheads design entry.

 

Designing socks is fun and you can virtually put anything on a sock. What I love about Sock It To Me are their crazy designs for adults and children. They have a whole variety and I think the quirkier, the better!

If you’d like to vote for my design, please visit SockItToMe. Thank you! 😀
