Greetings from Toronto

Toronto's postcard

This postcard gave me a full year of Adobe creative suite when I submitted it for the Adobe Live Design Challenge during Behance live. This prize came at a perfect time for a struggling creative. Thank you Behance team! [add happy tears here] The image of Toronto’s Harbourfront was sourced at unsplash.com and taken by Sidra Saeed @sidrahmd

This below zero weather is testing my patience and since I’m trying to get some Illustrations skills in Adobe Illustrator, it appeared to be very appropriate to share my #currentwintervibe sponsored by my not there yet illustration skills but trying. Brrr enjoy.

_hi_2019

It took me a couple days to decide whether to hit the skip button for this year’s recap but it felt somewhat important for my future mental health to do it so when I feel melancholic about time going to fast I can have a quick peek to this post and realize that this past year did not suck as much as I thought but …

New Content

Social Media content x Bare Ethics. With the dreary winter days on us, the mood for Bare Ethics Instagram feed changed for a clean and brighter imagery. The next two collage images were split into a nine grid layout. What I like about this trend splitting images in 3, 6, 9 … is the freedom that gives us to explore possibilities and to be more …

Rosalía “El mal querer”

Still cannot believe it took me this long to run into this gorgeous Album. El Mal Querer, from the Spanish artist Rosalía, rooted in Flamenco, each song is a chapter of an intense, dramatic and romantic love story. The Art involving the music is power, it shows how much work and thought went producing such a project. Try to watch the visuals only once, I dare you …

New Portfolio

It was about time to upgrade the layout of my Portfolio and give its own home. Even Though I always liked it to have it all together I started listening to what some other visitors of this page had commented about it and most of the feedback was the same: overall looks nice but it does not get to the point of what I want …

Imagine

In honor of what should have been today his 78th birthday, I made a quick motion to celebrate the release of a new box set of his iconic album, Imagine. Happy Birthday John Lennon! Top image:  John Lennon at Tittenhurst Park, 1971 Photo by Peter Fordham ©1971 Yoko Ono

Feelings

Un día despiertas y el corazón está tranquilo. Nada duele,  nada angustia, nada grita. Entonces ya fue, ya acabó , volviste. Poem by  Rafael Cabaliere Random things that happen when you need a mental break and also run into your super ancient Bamboo tablet. A quick doodle and a heartful poem pulled out of Social media.

Adventure

A quick video put together with After Effects to introduce a platform game “Monggu’s Adventure” that my team (Soohae did all the Illustrations and Keitha worked the game logic in Construct2) and I  worked on last semester. In case you feel like clicking on: Behind Head of Design for Google Hardware, Ivy Ross. This headphone store and this home. Best places to travel in 2018. Sketch is …

2017 Thank you but no thanks.

This year, allergies stayed around for too long that’s when I should have known this year was going to be one for the books but not for the right reasons. We had a rough year with good and challenging things happening to our little family but just like some will say “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” Thank you 2017 for reminding me where …
