Art style sketches + scribbles

About 3/4ths through the block of time carved out for project production, my mind starts to splutter. The writing gears just sort of give out.

That’s when art style and direction exercises take over. The scribbles & sketches seen above are experiments (though they might not look it) and studies of what works while using black ink, white acrylic, and Sharpie marker on toned paper.

There’s something cathartic about these scribble-dibbles.

Geeky ribbon sketch - Rebecca Miller illustration

Just a fast rough of a very nerdy geeky tattoo illustration featuring binary! A that lil’ orange guy? The lovely Smashing Magazine mascot. The round guy rolls around the studio making sure all is running smoothly.

This post first appeared on February 2nd, 2014. The loveable cute plush Smashing Magazine mascot was a prize won as a result of being a winning submission (“Pantone Catalyst”) for Smashing Magazine’s annual photography 2013 contest.

Just some action shots of my Super Mario desk. The shelf and box were fun to make and the flowers were from ThinkGeek.com.
