Drawing my name. I need a calligraphy class and some new pens. It doesn’t look too bad in this picture but its far from what I want. This is what I do when I should be writing a paper :) #calligraphy #drawing #graphicpens #doodle #practicemskesperfect #hand drawn #handmadetype #script #cursive #typography #design #procrastination #frustration
I die laughing.
Interesting to think about.
I recently got flustered at the AIGA student conference, at Maryville university, because people were asking me if I wanted to be a designer or an illustrator. I want to be a designer who illustrates. I couldn’t imagine not doing either. If money was no object would I still be a designer who illustrates? but of course!
“Wow Mr. Balloon, we’re going to have so much fun together.” POP “Hey, Mr. Balloon are you okay? Wha- what the, OHMYJESUSSWEETMOTHEROFGOD?!”
I can never not reblog this. ALWAYS AUTO REBLOG.
That’s like the most delayed reaction ever.
What if humans jumped like that when they got scared?! Bahaha I would scare everyone.
Creating Food #PantonePairings with @dschwen
Minneapolis-based illustrator and art director David Schwen (@dschwen) has long used Instagram as a creative outlet, documenting unique typography, literally interpreting common turns of phrase, and adding notification badges to everyday objects.
But lately, Schwen has embarked on a new theme: through the hashtag #pantonepairings, he has recreated paired Pantone color swatches with commonly paired food items.
“As a designer, you’re constantly picking color chips and pairing them up with one another. A while back I had an idea of making Pantone chips out of real household objects—sponges, cardboard, and the like. But while I was finishing up a poster design, I had taped two Pantone chips together to see how they looked next to one another. Instantly I thought of how people pair food together, and that was that. Pantone pairings.”
