Doodling and drawing to Graphic Design

Under - Design, Illustration, Typography

Rupinder Singh is a passionate graphic designer from India. He graduated in Media Science from NSHM School of Media and Communication with specialization in Advertisement and Public Relations. Rupinder works freelance and runs a design blog 365 Concepts where he shares his latest projects and inspirations.

My interest in graphic designing began back in my childhood days, when I was fascinated by the amazing world of design. I used to check magazine covers, movie posters and print advertisements and always wondered how they came up with such interesting ideas and designs. Doodling and drawing were always in my list of hobbies. One of my earliest rendezvous with art and design was at the age of 5, when I was awarded by the certificate of merit in ‘All-India Camel Colouring Contest, 1992’.

Along the way I realized that graphic designing is the most effective and powerful way of expressing ideas, thoughts and views.

Nomad Brush for the iPad

Under - Art, Illustration, Industrial Design, Technology

This appears to be something that I had been waiting for but the video and the website do not provide enough information to address all your questions. It sure is a unique artist paintbrush stylus for the iPad made with a long handle and soft bristles, but is it pressure sensitive? Is it going to work with all those paint and sketch apps out there or would come with it’s own?

The information is very sketchy and I see a slight lag in response (may be just me!) in that three seconds demo shown in the video above. Available February 2011 so meanwhile enjoy this and yes, I hope Wacom is going to wake up soon.

Watercolors by Grzegorz Wróbel

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration

This is awe-inspiring watercolor artwork by Grzegorz Wróbel. An architect by profession, Grzegorz Wróbel was born in 1983 and started painting with watercolors at the age of 12.

During my studies at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, I learnt a lot about watercolors. Although the faculty of Architecture at this university has a strong tradition in drawings and watercolors, but most of my skills are gained from my own study and personal interest in this medium, and from friends who also work with watercolors.

In summer time I usually draw from life. I think this is the best way to learn something new and to achieve better skills. But in winter, it is hard to go outside and paint as water freezes : ) so, I paint from photos that I have made earlier.

The most difficult thing when working with watercolors is to control water! You just cannot control it 100%. I use a lot of water and I think it is the greatest thing to observe how it flows on your paper and creates magical things.

Playing with the sky…

Playing with the sky - Valeria Prieto

Valeria Prieto, based in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, studied graphic design at the Institute of Architecture, Design and Art at the University of Ciudad. She’s been teaching contemporary art and illustration at elementary, middle and high schools in Mexico since 2002. She also serves as a photographer and collaborator in short films and animations.

Her latest work ‘Playing with the sky’ caught my eye on her blog which is simply brilliant! I asked her if she could share her thoughts around it:

Those images were shot with Sony Cyber Shot TX5, and then I selected some vintage images/elements to add more life into them. Sometimes I use a peephole and a crystal with cuts to get various background effects and I like to merge several photos into one.

I have loved photography since childhood. One of the best things I’ve seen in the city where I live (city of Juárez, Chihuahua, MX) are the sunsets, so I love to take pictures of them because every day it is different, especially in winter the sunsets are so colorful that I don’t need to apply color correction. I like to play with the shots by adding items such as musical notes and birds on electric wires, buildings or images that may become part of those great sceneries.

The fox trap

The fox trap

Jonathan Bartlett is a New York based illustrator with a knack for metaphor and clever stories.

Growing up I certainly didn’t consider picture making or storytelling to be a means to an end. I didn’t even know what the word ‘illustration’ meant until I was a junior in college.

One day I told my teachers I wanted more creative freedom so I was going to be a graphic designer; they laughed at me…quite literally. In turn this made me really mad so I looked again at the list of art majors, saw illustration and in an instant said ‘fine, I’ll be an illustrator”. And that was that, a classic case of the tell-me-I-can’t-do-something…
