Process: Prodigious Life
I just want to share the process of how I made the header of my blog. First of all, if you’re going to design your own header as well, you need to have a direct idea of what you actually want. If nothing gets into your mind, searching off for different designs might help you, at least. Well, that’s how I got mine. In case you want to know what sites I visit to be inspired, here they are:
- From Up North - Graphic Design
- Abduzeedo - Graphic Design / Articles
- Inspiration Feed - Articles
- Behance - Illustration / Typography
As you can see, it’s not that good. I seriously think that I have lost the ability to draw well ever since I stopped doing so when I was 1st year HS! :-( So here’s a tip. If you don’t want to lose your skill/talent, just keep on honing/using them and never miss a day! :-)
The lineart was made in Illustrator while the elements surrounding the typography were made in Photoshop. Here, you will see the flow of how I edited the whole design from the beginning.
Final design and look:
It All Ends Here
This movie amazed me for its great visuals. Although I haven’t seen all of the Harry Potter movies, I still think it has a deep sense of story. A reason why I should watch them someday. Anyway, I hope guys like it!
Upon searching for some references, I found an inspirational quote:
Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one remembers to turn on the light.
— Albus Dumbledore
Happy Birthday JJOE!!
Approximately 19 hours ago, I turned 17 years old and felt old right away. :-( Haha! Anyway, I would like to thank all the people who have read and have been reading my blog ever since (if there’s any huhu). If you are kind of an old follower of mine, you would notice that I became less active as time goes by.. I got too busy in school stuff to post something, but still, I managed somehow. Ah! So, I will try my best to be active again to keep track of my ‘journey’ in college life!
Soon, I’m going to be a Green Archer! *cool sound effect plays* Hooray! But I think I have to post something about my graduation before I officially become one since I studied at SAS for the past 12 years! What a loyal Andrean here. Haha!
In relation to the typography above, I found my purpose in life, maybe, to inspire other people through art and design. I’ve always dreamed to run a design studio that makes thoughtful craft for the print / web and beyond. And in order for that to happen, of course, I need to pick the right program. Which then led me to choose Advertising in DLSU! Hopefully, it will be fun and exciting as a lot of people told me, like Ate Abbey and Sir Dan.
Again, thank you to all my followers for being part of my life! Now that I know my purpose in life, I’m going to continue what I always wanted to do. Make art! How about you, have you found your purpose in life?
This was my first-ever artwork of the year, 2013! Guess where did I submit this? (You got it!) Graphika Manila! Yup, I tried my luck again by submitting a portrait though I know they were looking for something unique. This wasn’t published but I thank them for pushing me to create an artwork after 3 months, I guess?
So yeah, summer vacation has just started and I look forward on being active again here on tumblr and making lotsa digital stuff! And, still on the confusion what school should I enter. :-( DLSU, CSB, or MINT? Huhu. Ahhh, I just need some time to think. Probably.
