I was up late one evening last week just surfing the internet when I received a message from a follower suggesting I watch PJ, Tiny Planet Explorer by PJ Liguori. As pictured, I clearly enjoyed it and found inspiration in the two minutes and ten seconds it lasted. It had me wonder what ten items I’d pack if I moved to another planet and I thought the ten things he packed said a lot about his character. So, here I am after creating a mock film poster for this short film that has even won an award.
I was curious and looked through and watched like 3-5 of his other videos (I know one was Office Space and another was Lullaby Box) and his creativity is quite contagious. I was in a bit of a slump last week just exhausted from my various jobs and I’m happy I was able to find the energy to make this. He’s quite a story teller and I think he’s one of those creatives everyone would love to collaborate with (I certainly would at least in terms of comics or other). It also opened my eyes to the fact that YouTube is entirely a separate culture that I had zero knowledge of until now.

DISCLAIMER: I have zero connection to PJ Liguori and he did not partake in the creation of this mock film poster. This is purely inspired.
Promotional piece for myself. I’m still deciding between this background and another version. Clients will be receiving this as an A3 poster in the mail (and some friends and family too). It will also serve as my opening page for my portfolio book.
Dip pen and ink with digital color.
Also, I can screen phone calls, just FYI.
First project for my Advertising Illustration class. We could choose any social or political topic that affects everyday American people and we had to incorporate the American flag as the motif in an informative poster. I obviously chose cocaine abuse ┐(‘～`；)┌
I also used my friend, James, as reference! Ink, gouache, graphite, and Photoshop!
I’ve also been in a rush with self-promotion stuff with help from Mark because one of my Illustration professors recommended me for an interview with BCBG for a potential internship!
I’ve also started a Behance for those who wanted a site with just my artwork. I needed a temporary website for my portfolio and when I get the chance this weekend, I’ll add the link to it on my sidebar, but for now just click the Behance button. Right now, it’s all work you’ve seen before because it’s all on my Tumblr.
A gig poster for my friend’s band, The Monikers. It’s a faux gig because they’ll be busy recording this summer, but I was at least able to use it for class! You can check them out at TheMonikers.com. The demo songs they have up are old I believe, but still worth looking into. That and they can use this poster for an actual future show.
We had critique today and my professor really liked it so I had nothing to change (yayyyyy!). I had a lot of fun with this, so I’m looking into taking the Poster Design class that’s offered here in the future.
This time it’s all digital work! I scanned a pencil sketch in and even did the line art digitally. I think I may start using that technique more and still doing other projects just using the pencil lines. And the type is hand lettered as well! I was nervous about that part of the project because I’m not really confident with creating my own type, but I’m really happy with the turn out.
