The school year is almost over and there is just one more day left until summer vacation. I’m feeling so frustrated, anxious, and happy at the same time. Today was my last day to work on my Mac Lab final and I’m pretty sad that I didn’t get to finish one of my most important collage this year. But next year will be even better and I hope I’ll become a more professional digital artists. I so much big plans and I hate missing out on them. Good thing there will be the Mac Lab Summer Academy-this should keep me busy for a while. I also have the Adobe products right here at home so I can start creating things on my own time. I can’t wait to see the finished Mac Lab iBook when it’s all sorted out and put together.
The featured image here was a cover page I designed for my student chapter. I had to redo the design a couple of times since I wanted it to look good.
I have now finished 4 icons. These icons are (in reading order): maps, video, YouTube, and iTunes. They were a lot of work but I still have a lot to finish. I didn’t get to finish the tutorial right now since I was still working on the iPad. Hopefully, there will be a tutorial tomorrow.
Also, FJ Studios blog was created and I’m going to post the same information on both blogs(FJStudios and FaDesigns). I’m glad the iPad project is turning out fine with no issues so far. I also decided to make another tutorial to show how I quickly made one the icons I talked about at the beginning of the post.
I’ll upload a full image of what my iPad looks like, but it will be later this week.
Today, I present you the vector address application for the iPad. It’s not exact since I was working on small pixilated image so It’s all lot of guess work. I spent more time working on the iPad project today. I was also given a paper of what the design previously was so that also handy. I managed to talk James into helping with the project since James and I are part of the unofficial(as of yet) FJ Studio. So this will be first attempt at collaborating together to design a poster/postcards. I am doing the graphics part of the work and he is doing the writing portion of it, this is exactly how James intended it to be. I’ll continue to provide updates on this project.
On a side note, I like how the rings looked like it’s slanted, another indirect illusions I always seem to make just like the Orange Nation and its static effect.
ANNOUNCEMENT: A new tutorial is coming, possibly this week or next week-hopefully, tomorrow ;).
The past week, I was bombarded to design logos for Chris C., Mac Lab Media, and Local Oracle(prize competition). Chris C. came to me and asked me to make a logo for CR Design Lab in Illustrator and so I did and I came up with this. I made this one the featured image just because the other ones aren’t completed yet. The Mac Lab Media also want their logo finished so I experimented with the perspective tool and came up with something weird but I’ll feature sooner or later. As for the last logo I was not asked/told to do is the Local Oracle logo which is giving out a cash prize to the winner who designs the best logo. James was the one that pointed this out to me as he is trying to make cash from loads of art contests. James W. and I are finally teaming up to make a cool logo for them.
James also had a plan to make collaborative blog or something similar that will be called FJ Studios. I can’t really tell anymore than that but more info coming soon.
Note: I’m still working on the iPad project.
