First Order Stormtrooper

I recently completed this illustration. My challenge to myself was to recreate this image based off of a picture I found using only shape layers and layer effects. I wanted to see if I could do it, and the end result is an (almost) infinitely scaleable image. 44 shape layers, no pixel layers, no smart objects.

Finally getting around to posting an illustration that I finally got around to making. I’d been tossing this idea around in my head for a while, and it took me a while to get it done. Now it’s taken me forever to post it, but here it is! Also, I’m still not sure how to decide if I should call it a buffalo or a bison.

RIP Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee had such a wide variety of characters that he played over the years. He was one of my favorite voices in film, and he had such a presence on the screen. Of all of his characters, this is the one that I will remember him most for.

Warriors!

To celebrate the upcoming matchup between the Warriors and the Cavaliers, I made this illustration of Steph Curry. Done in a style that I associate with Hey Studio, this was a challenging one for me. It was difficult to condense him down to simplified shapes while still maintaining his identity.

Patrick Willis

I made this a little while back to honor Patrick Willis as he was retiring. I believe that athletes should be allowed to make the decision of retirement not just when they’re played out and not able to compete, but to have a higher quality of life for post-retirement. In his retirement announcement, Willis talked about not being able to give that “wow” to the fans, but also about having the ability to play with kids, play pickup basketball, or even walk without a limp. I love that he’s thinking about the future, and not just about how much money he could make, or how famous or noteworthy he can be.
