sketching some storyboards for a client, one of my favorite things to do. On a side note: i'm thinking of redoing this mannequin project that I did a few years ago, my style and subject matter of my illustrations has changed so I'm contemplating updating my mannequin to reflect that

Thrifting: The Little Black Dress

I don't know any girl that doesn't love a Balmain dress. Sparkles, bodycon, and short...yes please! But since my budget isn't exactly in the Balmain ballpark I decided to do some hunting at the local Good Will to see if I could find something along the same lines and here's what I found:

the dress started out as a long sheath dress, I'm not really a fan of mid-calf length dresses I either like them to be long or short, so I adjusted the hem of the dress and add a belt to make the fit a little tighter. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Martin and Corretta

There is something remarkable about a love like this, one that endures and stand not only the tests of time but all the hate that hell can thrust upon it. MLK day is upon us and every year I am always drawn to these two, not just because of the legacy that they left for me and my future family but I'm always in awe at the strength and the utter greatness that it takes and took for them to go through what they did. I am forever grateful.

Sneak Peak: My new websites

Site: M-Class Creative
Service: Graphic Design, Art Direction, Corporate Identity

Hey guys here's a look at my completely re-branded freelance graphic design business' website. I've been working on it for a few weeks now and by working i mean starting and stopping work in between family gatherings, visiting friends, and working at my other job. Its been a challenge to say the least but I'm really happy with how its coming along. I've still got a laundry list of other things that have to be done before I'm 100% ready to relaunch my freelance business but its coming along swimmingly.

Service: personal art portfolio, animation, illustration, children's book illustration

I also decided to make another site completely dedicated to my digital and fine arts. There you will be able to purchase prints, commission artwork, and keep up with my animated works as well. As you can see, there is still much to be done with this site but I'm pleased with the layout and I wanted its color scheme to echo my scheme here on the blog to maintain continuity.

with all that being said, I hope you all are enjoying your New Year and its off to a positive and productive start!!
