Early stages of another Narnia illustration! Its the Voyage of the Dawn Treader! See the sketchbook doodle flesh out with Photoshop and some imagination. The illustration portrays the ship towards the farthest extent of its journey. As crew members look through crystal clear water at the lilies below, Reepicheep the mouse gets excited about what lies beyond.
Reepicheep got some more attention. I worked the drawing in with a photo of grass for a more believable setting. Take a look at the subtle animation on the first image. I wanted to give the point of view of someone disoriented on the ground and seeing this little armored mouse. Different color effects also included. The color differences were mostly achieved by applying different blending modes to layers and experimenting with the stacking.
Here are some shots of the banner I developed for "The Baptism of Our Lord" service at the 2014 WELS Worship Conference. The twist was not originally intended, but I liked it for a few reasons. It shared the view with worshipers on 3 sides, may have caused some curiosity/discovery, and (my favorite) activated the piece in a sculptural way. The twist gave a new kind of motion to the piece...
Here's an overview of print materials I'm bringing to this year's WELS National Worship Conference.
See the new edition of business cards below. I'm planning some fun ways to distribute them at the conference. If you are attending, keep your eyes peeled. If you come across a cube or a stray pack of cards...finders keepers. You may see them in stacks at vendors tables...take a few, leave the stack. COLLECT AND TRADE WITH YOUR FRIENDS! 12 CARDS IN ALL! (Don't worry I have plenty...)
