Breaking Down the Process

An in-depth look at my approach to the illustration, typography, and inspiration behind my conceptual poster for the film Logan (2017).

artwork

From digital photomanipulation and drawing tablets down to old-fashioned ink and paper, I make it a priority to remain as versatile as possible when it comes to what I create.

Sometimes the inspiration can come from the challenge of making a composition out of nothing but a photograph. Other times it come as a tribute to a film. Whatever it ends up being, I don't restrain myself when it comes to what I use.

 
 

DESIGN

Every client has an idea of what they aspire for their project to be. They may need a logo, a website, or even the cover artwork for a new album that they've been recording - what matters is that the design reflects their vision and fulfills it. That's where being versatile becomes necessary; the projects that I'm approached with are diverse in their values and identities, and I need to be ready for each one. 

Whether I'm working on UI/UX, promotional campaigns, or even the overall branding of a small business, my role is to make sure that what I create complements exactly what the other side has in mind. 

 
 

Photography

When it comes to creativity for anyone, whether they utilize it as a profession or not, the foundation for our inspiration comes from what we see around us. In my senior year of high school, I saved up and bought a Canon 5D Mark II, and started taking pictures of what I saw around me. It could have been pictures of the Dallas skyline because I found myself on a rooftop with a nice view, or it could have been pictures of my friends as they were walking up to the stage and receiving their high school diplomas.

I've never considered photography a profession - I don't specialize in wedding portraits, and I don't run events with large setups and lighting umbrellas. I just document my environment, and I do that through whatever camera I may have on me. Many of the shots in my collection were taken with that same DSLR I bought seven years ago - and many were taken on an iPhone. Out of everything I've taken inspiration from, the work that I'm most proud of has always come from a foundation of the places that I've gone - and the people that I've met along the way.
