digital media/vector art (illustrator CS)
drawn 23 May 2006
tim over at nightgig and of the gigcast asked me to come up with a little logo for their gigcast drive-bys. (think mini-podcasts.) he asked for a beatnik in a car. well, how about one in a pink caddy?
details still need to be done on the car, but the beatnik is, for the most part, finished.
there prolly is a better way to do this, but for the moment, here's what i do:
i scan my original pencils, placing them in illustrator as a jpeg and lock the object, where it can't shift around on me. then, i take the trusty pencil tool in CS and draw over it, adding color and detail where needed. simple. i can create from scratch in CS, but i want this to be exact to my pencil sketch.

been in a blue funk the past few days. perhaps i need to keep busier. it just frustrates me that i can't share things, even the most mundane of things with him anymore. *sigh* i mean i broke down at work, twice this week and it's only wednesday. i know i need to let it out, but i just feel so unsure of everything...so i came home and art-ed before i went to bed.
i'm experimenting with fimo, trying to make charms and pendants to wear. we'll see how it turns out. working on a little piece for girlwithoutfear as a gift.
after the above piece is done, i have a commission from my aunt for an illustration for a family tree.
i'm off to hit the showers before work.
