I had the great privilege to create illustrations for Adobe Creative Cloud. These images will be used as header art for featured learning content on Adobe.com in the near future.
The challenge was to create conceptual, rather than literal, artistic interpretation of tutorial topics and content.
It was a pleasure to work with Art Director, Kendall Plant, and an honor to be in the company of some truly inspired illustrators.
Matty and Collin both got to work on the adobe project as well. They did such a great job with their sets. I especially love Matty’s cool Miami man with the squigs. I have been posting mine individually but I will post my set soon with an update on the specs of the project. Woo Matty! <3 Get it, girl. Check out both of their work!
UMMMM I GOT A CINTIQ??!!! I can make fluid lines?!!! WHAT THE HECK
I might actually be able to make patterns again and they’d actually look the way they’re supposed to?
Ak Ana, the “White Mother” is the primordial creator-goddess of Turkic people and the Khanty and Mansi peoples of Siberia. She is also known as the goddess of the water. She was the consort of Kayra Han.
Water had created earlier than Earth. Therefore she was believed to be a sister to Earth. The beginning of the Earth emanated from Water. In ancient Turkish beliefs, Tangri (God) Kaira Khan is a pure, white goose that flies constantly over an endless expanse of water (time). But before Ak-Ana appears to urge Kaira Khan to create, he experiences a disturbance of his calm. From the bottom of the Water a “sacred duck” Lura lifted the sand, clay and silt, from which the Earth was created. Water was the initial state of everything in existence. Water evenly gave rise to both foreign and hostile elements. It was the possessor of spirits and the entrance into the other realm. The life, fertility and productivity of land depended on the Ak Ana.

So I was REALLY excited Ava’s Demon was having a contest… I’d wondered what mine would look like when I first started reading and now I had an excuse to design her! Yesss!! “ヽ(´▽｀)ノ”
I really really really love themes and hidden meanings and the way the canon characters both match yet also foil an aspect of their demons. I really wanted my demon to represent both good, bad, and neutral things. So ok lets see how well I can summarize this oh gosh.

A number of people have informed me that my hiatus post is being used to promote my blog and so is being broadcast all over tumblr… so I made this thing to put a stop to that.
