Continuing on from my last post, here is another sample video of work done using Cinema 4D software.
Here is a video of various test animations I’ve created over the past few months, using Cinema 4D software. I’ve played around with many different techniques, including hair, grass, dynamics (like wind, water, gravity, particles), displacement maps for weird textures, titles and 3D text and modeling of objects. Check em out.
I’ve been working with fonts and typography for years as a designer. So I really like finally knowing the history behind words like serif and sans-serif and Helvetica. This stop motion animation by Ben Barrett-Forrest gives you a history lesson in typography in a very appealing way.
I’m excited to be learning the ins and outs of Illustrator. I’m particularly fascinated with Gradient Mesh drawings. Trying to create photo-realistic images from meshes of gradients. I’m still a noob at it, but have gotten some pretty nice results so far. Here’s a gallery of some of my first works.
Graphic designer, Mike Joyce, has created some absolutely spunky vintage style typographic posters for over 200 bands and concerts (just a few of which are pictured above). His retro style is influenced by his love of punk rock and swiss modernism. Each of his designs are cool as all get out. His posters are available in 3 different sizes, check them out at SWISSTED.
Look at these super duper neato comic book and graphic novel cover design winners from the AWWWARDS. They make me wet myself a little.
This video is beautiful and inspiring.
Looky Looky, it’s my name up in paper artwork. These paper typography letters are quite the fun thing. Spell your name in them. Or don’t.
Everyone (and that includes you) knows that I love cocktails. I also love multi-colored things like rainbows and vomit. So it makes perfect sense that these images of colorful cocktails captured my attention right away.

I stumbled upon these amazing illustrations of New Zealand artist, Andrew Archer. The zombie pic really caught my eye, but he’s got a nice portfolio of images.
