Hi my name is Alex, This channel will be the central creative visual hub to broadcast my videos to give you a "behind the scenes" look at my graphic design work. It will be a visual treat to look at. It will be a mixture of illustration recordings, graphic design time-lapse montages, and a mixture of jazz funk and rock n roll to accompany the videos. So not only will you receive fresh designs, lines, tones, textures and colours into your eyes, but also audio tracks to melt your brain into a gooey fudge.
Thumbnail design for Dan Brown's Channel, "Pogobat". You can download these on my Flickr. Twitter Tuesday design: http://www.flickr.com/photos/freshalex/4580681940/ Wall Wednesdays design: http://www.flickr.com/photos/freshalex/4580050689/ I designed these 2 thumbnails using adobe Illustrator, proximate time it took was 20 mins. The drum music you hear is "BillRayDrums - Shuffle with Stop Time" is is free to download under creative commons http://ccmixter.org/people/BillRayDrums/sample
Vectorizing yourself into a cartoon can be done using Illustrator, but once you know the basics you can do it using any program that has a "pen tool".I put this video together to show you how I turned myself into a cartoon. I did this because I noticed some services/websites out there that offer to turn your pictures into a cartoon for a fee / price. So to show you just how easy (or difficult) it can be I recorded myself turning myself (and partner) into a cartoon.
