Vector Illustration

A combination of masks, textures and brushes applied with a beetling level of detail.

Sometimes, I enjoy bringing doodles from my sketchbook to life digitally. After sketching, I snap a picture and import it to start creating silhouettes. Then, I apply a mix of brushes and transparencies to achieve depth.

Above all, I enjoy bringing depth to landscapes. Vector brushes have come a long way and I like to customize mine for each layout. As a result, a lot of detail can be packed into a simple shape.

Sometimes, when a more sleek illustration style is needed I turn to different tools. To create these app icons, I mixed blends, transparencies and Photoshop effects in a vector program.
