I have four illustrations I need to create this weekend…One of Goji growing in Himalayan foothills, one of Green Tea in Japan, one of Vanilla in the Polynesian Jungle and one of Cacao growing in the Amazon rainforest.
The trick is that the style has to be the same and they all are backgrounds for a product so the key ingredient needs to pop and type will need to run over the illustration.
This is not a natural fit for my wheelhouse and I’m going to be relying heavily on combining bits and bobs I find at a stock house.
For me Illustration and logo design both are like doing my taxes, they require that I jump in - or i will procrastinate until the very last second. My client on these is an odd duck and very opinionated so I can’t have him in my head.
I’ve finally set up a professional page on Facebook for my business - Qdesigninc - I am a web and print designer. I’ve been designing for a long time and absolutely love the challenge and variety of design projects I’ve been fortunate enough to work on over the years. The link is:
Tim & I both attended Pratt Institute in NYC awhile back. Like may, we’d lost track of each other and reconnected on Facebook. He’s gone on to make a name for himself in children’s book writing and illustration. Several months ago Tim launched a Kickstarter campaign to help defray costs for traveling around and speaking to students about writing and Illustration. I donated to his campaign and one of the generous perks for that donation was a custom drawing. I’ve been looking for an icon for my chicken company and this is perfect. I love it. Thanks Tim!
