Working with Black and White

I love to create designs in black and white. I like other colors don’t get me wrong, but the combination of black and white seems to draw me back every time I work on my artwork. I like the simple and bold statement that black and white makes. The contrast of the two colors just make a loud noise and expression. They said to the world, we know who we are and we are here to stay. The two colors together give off this kind of strength and sureness that speaks to the world and to me. I want to be more sure of myself, more bold to the world, and more confident in my work.

I just run across a site that talks about, and I quote ” unquestionably sophisticated and elegant” of black and white in interior design. The site is called Freshome.com ( Interior Design & Architecture), where they focus on fresh looks and styles in the Interior Design and Architecture Industries. Here is the link to the site –Interior Design – Black & White

Lately,I have been working on black and white designs and images. Here are a few of my designs.

Black and white speak to me a lot and hope they never stop. I want to be as strong and brave as those colors and I know I will.

Learning Something New

Today, I decided to learn something today. I know how to use Adobe Illustrator, but it is always good to learn something or do something new. So I went to a site I love to search a lot called IllustrationClass.com.a site by Von Glitschka. There is a lesson there that goes over creating characters from thumbnails to full color characters.

IllustratorClass.com

So Here is my Thumbnail stretch.

Here is the final design, What do you think?  I wanted to name him Mad Peanut, but I don’t think he looks that mad.  What Name would you give him? Also I would like to thank Von Glitschka for helping us artist out here learn something new. I was not great with characters, but since I have done one I am more welling to do more.

Hello world!

July 28, 2011 1 comment

Hey, My name is Tawana Walker. I am trying my hand at blogging. In the past, I was a person of few words. I am trying to get away from that. I am a graphic artist who love patterns, black and white, and unique images. At this time in my life, I am trying to get into the surface textile industry.

My basic life consists of A husband, one son and two daughters, 12 brothers and sisters and around 45 nieces and nephews & counting. I just lost my mother last December and my father has been gone for six years now. I am not working at this time, I am looking for a new direction for my life when it comes to graphics.

I will be using the blog site to showcase my work, show off my family and show my love for graphics.

Hope you come back to check me out..

The only picture I like of myself.
