I had posted this originally on my instagram and forgot to post it here. This was a fun illustration that I worked on one day. Recently I’ve been in a mood to draw with markers and I love balance between the metallic inks and black. I plan on creating more and better illustrations with my markers, because sometimes it’s a lot more fun to work hands on then working on the computer.
It’s that time of year where everyone is thankful for what they have followed by the madness for more stuff to be thankful for next year. Here is a list of awesome deals for designers and people who enjoy cool graphics.

In case you didn’t know 5 Pointz in New York was whited out, destroying all the art that was there. It seems like everyday Art loses its respect and it’s something that we should not take for granted. Let’s keep art alive whether it’s on the street or in the gallery. 5 pointz was one of the coolest places and it needs to be back. Rest In Paint.

One thing I personally believe that every designer should have in their toolkit is the ability to work on traditional media. I enjoy practicing my craft and it’s fun for me. Above is a recent drawing created with my prisma markers. A lof of designers miss that little tool, which is very useful for the entire design process. I’m not saying this image will be digital, but sketching ideas beforehand helps. I believe a designer IS an artist and working on traditional mediums is necessary. I will continue to hone my skill whether it’s painting, drawing, etc.
It’s that right around the corner, the last Munny Social of the year. Am I looking forward to it? You’ve seen the previous posts of past Munny Socials, so yes I am. When there’s a good vibe in the air from the people, music, delicious food, and creative flow it’s addictive. If you want to have fun through creativity and meeting new people I say try this out. $18 is the cost and you could win some cool prizes alongside of the awesome munny that you create.
