[private]Year 2010 had been such busy year for me , during this year i really stopped writing anymore of the tutorials and got busy working for myself , getting myself ready you can say for the freelancer’s freedom. And i must say i have done it successfully . During this time i started my own online illustrations and graphics store and very successfully started getting orders for custom designs and illustrations which i like doing most!
During this time i found myself lost in creating FOR the client and started wondering if i was beginning to loose myself as an artist? … just to explore myself and the way i am going and my art is going i started 100 sketches , the idea is not really to produce all 100 sketches in coming 100 days but it is just a path to exploration and i am so behind!! .
Yesterday i again doodled out some stuff and then started working on it having a clear idea of what artwork i am looking for so i doodled…. and got lost doodling 🙂 here is what i ended up creating.
It feels so good to give your illustrations life and see them as a part of your own house. This is a new venture that i have stepped into . Wall decals are recently becoming very much popular. I created this logo for decal ideas , along with the identity development. Since the decals are mostly about decor and lifestyles i incorporated a cool looking floral motif for this in the logo design.
Site design is still under construction but the decals are already up for sale through etsy site. You can visit the Etsy store for the designs view currently in production these designs are recreated from my illustrations as decals .
While the site is still being created , i wanted to create a branding theme for the whole site. The elements of supportive designs are created using hand drawn and sketched feel which will be carried out in the following website design ( i will keep you updated ) . Here is the banner for the ETSY Store that i created while staying in the precieved artistic style for the brand.
also the Etsy Avatar to go with the whole concept
The requirement of the store is provide instructions and color choices here are is the design for color chart and the instructions sheet.
Since the site is following the sketchy feel to it , i am planning to add similar product previews something like you see below
I will shortly write the design details of the website and its creation phases as it happens.. so exciting!
During this process of self exploration through different mediums i am these days trying out new techniques with water colors . I will be posting a few more of these in coming posts . I hope to expand my knowledge of shapes , forms and creative techniques.
I just had to skip my regular post of 100 sketches due to few logo jobs which needed to be finished . One of them was Logo for Alfurqan Islamic Center . With not an ideal time frame in hand this job was to be delivered within 1 hour!. Luckily the client was happy with the very first and initial review sent to them. Here is what i came up with hope you like it too.
