Learning to Bend It

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

After a few years of lusting over the Lensbaby products I finally decided that the time to take action and buy one. Although, the main factor in my sudden purchase is that my days of student discounts are coming to a swift end. So expect some new images popping up throughout my blog as I continue to test out this new toy.

So without further ado, here are some of my latest experiments:

Camera Wallpaper Dark

Last summer I made my self a little illustration project to digitally sketch a nice brownie camera. I was pleased with it so I went on and made a second. From that second I decided to make myself a background, which I am now sharing with you. I hope you like it!

Personal Project: Camera Illustrations

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

After my recent re-discovery of tutorials, I have taken to briefly reading through the articles on Vectortuts or PSDtuts in order to gather the general ideas behind the tools and concepts behind the final result while keeping in mind the potential use in my professional output. However, an article posted by Katie Marcus on a developing a sketchy camera illustration caught my fancy. Was it the style, or the fact that I’m obsessive about my Holga? Whatever the reason, I kept it flagged as unread in my Google Reader until I had time to work through it.

Combining my love of photography, and my love of Illustrator (and, of course, the information provided by the tutorial), I have embarked on a personal project illustrating vintage cameras.
