ARTISTRY MEETS DESIGN
Self Portrait-Geo Me

Illustrations

It all begins here. Illustrating/sketching is the beginning of all works of art. I use a variety of pencils, colored pencils, pens and the computer to create the effect I want. This is a variety of fine art, quick sketches and thumbnails.

These are the four mandalas I hand drew that became the footprint for my repeating pattern that I screen printed on fabric. You can find that piece under my Printmaking portfolio. This is how it looked on the screen. 

Dancer

Dancer

This is an illustration I designed in Illustrator. I am a lover of yoga and dance and this image suited those desires. The wallpaper is a repeating pattern of a mandala I drew. Mandalas are designed for meditation and in yoga there is a focal point (a drishti) and meditation is one pointed focus so I combined the two in this image.
