#MakeItGraphic | Series 2 – Vector Vibes

I am VERY excited about this next #MakeItGraphic theme, “Vector Vibes.”  Before we get into it, I want to thank all those who checked out #MakeItGraphic | Series 1 – iPhoneography.

All (digital) illustrators know a lot can be achieved with the mighty little pen tool.  I admit when I first learned how to use it way back when I was not the most elegant.  But now I really enjoy the creative problem solving that comes with the technique — the more you use it the more fun results it yields.  When I first typed the word ‘Vibes’ I automatically thought of surfing.  I then knew I wanted to design prints on a surfboard but the main question was what.  The first thing that popped into mind was a gun, but because I don’t promote negative implications linked to them I went the cheeky route.  Yes, I know I can be slightly weird, sometimes mistaken for quirky?,  but I’m definitely nuts, and I am totally OK with that.  Life’s more fun with a sense of humor spliced with ridiculousness.  Having said that, I hope you like this series!

(Skyler’s take)

Vector?
I get asked this question a lot. The way I explain it is, make this $hit as $&@ %#*^ big as you want because it’s like the fricking energizer bunny.

It’s graphic: look away fool,
