This movie has one of my favorite scenes ever in a movie. I’ve never watched a scene that was paced so slowly, that was so intense. I made an illustration using DMesh, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I wish I could find the designer that made that type lockup to give them credit, but I just updated the typeface and added some texture to it.
Last time I posted an illustration of an iconic image it was of Michael Jordan in the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest. This time it’s the well known shot of Muhammad Ali after knocking down Sonny Liston in 1965. I used DMesh and Photoshop, with some watercolor texture courtesy of Katie. I’m pleased with how it turned out. Before I got a chance to blog this, I showed my coworker and he wanted a print. I shot a picture with my phone to include in this blog post. And for the first time ever, I’m making this available as a wallpaper download!

Katie and I decided to print the poster that I made of Mt. Fuji, but it needed a companion poster for where we wanted to hang it. We talked about a couple different things that would go well with the iconic mountain, and decided eventually that the statue of the little mermaid in Copenhagen Denmark would be a good fit. We weren’t sure if it would work graphically speaking, since the scale is way different, but decided it was worth a shot.
I’m really happy with how they turned out, we printed and hung them up, pictures to come!
P.S. Slade and Dallas’ wedding was awesome, I’m so excited to edit pictures and put them up, stay tuned!
I’ve had this idea rattling around in my brain for a couple of months. I finally found the time to get it out of my brain and into a PSD. I’m pleased with the result, the layering of textures was fun, and DMesh helped out with the delaunay triangle part. Woohoo!
I love Andy Warhol’s work, and JJ Abrams creativity (and craziness) blows my mind. I came up with this idea a while back, didn’t do anything with it for a really long time, and then rushed to get it done by today! In order to be faithful to Warhol’s work, I knew I had to screen print these, which I’ve never screened onto paper, I’ve never used water based inks, and I’ve only screened shirts twice. This was a really fun and challenging project (I never want to print two colors with a one color press ever again).
And now for the good part, you can win these! I’m giving these away, just comment below and I’ll pick the best ones. One poster will be given to the person that comes up with the best story about the Dharma shark. Two posters will go to the person with the best “My friend would love one of these!” that isn’t “My friend is completely obsessed with Lost OMG!”
Here are the facts: 2 color screen print, 12″ x 18″ untrimmed, limited edition of 40, hand numbered, French Paper Smart White, comment by 5.30.2010 at 9:00pm PST.
Update: My good friend Narineh is giving away a couple of my posters. Enter her poster contest!
