CYNDI BAMF

This is my childhood friend Cynthia. We lived next to each other for a time and I was friends with her and her sister. I remember doing a lot of things with Cyndi when we were kids.

If not for Facebook, we’d never had come in contact with each other again, I’m sure of it. One of my favorite things about social media is how it can reconnect you with people.

Cynthia is a strong woman, living in California. She is politically driven and advocates for equal rights. I love seeing what she is doing with her life: she speaks out, she participates in marches and movements and protests, she is using her voice and she encourages others to do so as well. I wish I had half her drive! Cynthia for President!

I enjoy practicing techniques in Photoshop and Illustrator, and this one was fun and simple. Inspired by Shepard Fairy’s Obey Giant propaganda poster and its variations. I printed it out on glossy photo paper and sent it to her as a surprise. The colors turned out rich and sharp, I was happy with it.

Designs for Beauty Witch

New designs for cosmetologist, Tiffany Rubio. She wanted to change her branding, and came up with “Beauty Witch, let me work my magic”. It instantly reminded me of Bewitched, the 1970’s TV sitcom. I used pictures of Tiffany to shape her into a cartoon.

Goth Mirror

Handpainted with an artificial flower arrangement attached to the side featuring black roses, purple spiders and black and silver striped curly cues that remind me of Nightmare Before Christmas.  I also added a wire spider web detail directly onto the mirror part. This was originally just a frame and I added the mirror.
