Facial Plastic Surgery Illustration

Hi!!

It’s been …too long. I won’t bore you with the details surrounding my absence, but I will tell you that while I was gone, I got to do this:

Treatment Areas for Facial Fillers and Botox, oh my! This illustration was created for a facial plastic surgeon client to go inside an E-Newsletter. It is pure visual content!

I used a few photo references to get the facial proportions right, and my best judgement on the eyebrows.

Fact: I plucked half of my eyebrows off in the 90s

Go forth and be well!

Temporary Tatts

hello

A little while ago I created a “How to Set up your Illustration Portfolio” post where I recommended that you find examples of professional projects similar to the projects you would like to get and to illustrate your own version of them in order to show future clients that you are ready for top-level work… Well, here I am! Back to set a good example by doing one or maybe more of these “professional” projects! Let’s try it!

When I was searching for new projects that seemed like they could be real projects, I somehow stumbled across BriefBox and my search was over!

I did not sign up for the service. However, I did borrow one of the many free fake creative briefs they have on thier website for designers and illustrators like myself who want to get practice doing professional work, improve thier portfolios or practice thier skills.

Here is what the brief said:

Project overview:

‘Tatties’ specialize in temporary tattoos. They are looking for a new food-based design or set of designs to add to the ‘Food’ category on their online shop. Their transfer tattoos appeal to a wide audience of people, from young children who want to have fun with temporary tattoos to middle-aged women using them for parties and others events.

Use the inspiration images to get a feel for the style of designs that have been successful in the past, and then begin playing with your ideas. Using food as the theme, come up with two or three quirky designs that would work well as temporary tattoos: Use quotations, realistic pictures of food, or perhaps more cartoon-like images.

The nature of temporary tattoos is fun and playful, and the client is looking for something that reflects this; think bold colours and shaping. Try to work some humour in there!

 And here is what I did:

Unicorn Stamp Illustration

The Project

A friend of mine who operates her own boutique clothing business created a new way to track special purchases made by her customers by stamping the back of tags and rewarding customers who collect the tags with free merch! Clever!

The Scope

One garment tag stamp illustration featuring a magical, girly unicorn with the text “You Found One!”. I estimated the project would take about 2 hours.

The Options

I created these four options for her to choose from. She decided the cursive version without a border was more fun. She also had me remove her initials. The revisions went very quickly.
