Digital Illustrations for DIY Network
In 2011 and 2012, I started experimenting with digital illustration on the package branding for DIYNetwork.com. The resulting graphics had a light-hearted, handmade, and slightly feminine feel that made the content more accessible.
For Cleaning Tips, I started with a Wacom tablet outline and then added color with brushes in Photoshop.
The Big I Do was a mixture of doodles from my sketchbook collaged with photographic elements.
Finally, just because it still makes me laugh…
One of the first projects I did for DIYNetwork.com were these playful graphics for Throne Week. I used a mixture of stock art and drawings but what really made it stand out was the hot pink. I was known as “the girl that did that toilet crest” for months which, as a newbie, was a lot better than “hey you!”
