Graphic Design

I am continuing to expand my skills into the world of graphic arts — particularly Photoshop and Illustrator for Mac (I have them on both iMac and Macbook Air) and am using iPad apps like Art Studio. I love the digital landscape for art because I am an artistic person to begin with. This was a natural transition for me and I am hooked learning new techniques — like manipulation of layers, vector masks, and shadows.

Below I will keep editing and arranging the sample works as I add new content.  I mostly have kept it chronological from top to bottom (latest to oldest), but not always. Sometimes it is based on what I want to showcase most or like most as well.

An Apple concept where I created everything from scratch including the iPad:

Here is a new piece I did and detailed in a blog post where I took a pencil drawing and turned it into digital art using filters and hand-drawn setions:


Some comic book style fantasy art backdrop:


Below is one of my revent ideas to do a project on quantum computing or as I called it, “Out of This World Computing.” Everything is done by me as I took old projects and put them together with a filter i to this almost stone-looking Egyptian structure and made it into something pretty cool looking I think:

Then I turned it into a potential ad idea for IBM Watson:


Here is my latest Vector-based project using Illustrator on Mac — I used a photograph I took on iPad near me to represent cloud computing and networking, but the rest is all done in Illustrator:


Some more of my pure vector work using Illustrator — this time the concept is Bitcoins:


Here are lower quality screencaps of further revisions due to me not saving these revisions with export, but screen-capping them:

Some more Art Studio rasterized variants, but I was able to add some cool stuff easier on iPad — such as my my photographs and importing them into a digital art workflow. I also added some other pieces that I’ve done before and cut and pasted into it (the robot from Illustrator and iPad drawn with stylus on Illustrator — also the lower right is part of a pastel hand-drawn artwork of mine):

Added some shading in one of the images below for the figures and object I placed:

Another variation as noticed the arm for one of my objects was cut off although it looks kimd of cool as if he is appearing from behind the darkness I wanted to redo it:

Some cloud computing concept ideas drawn with stylus on iPad and Art Studio app:

I wanted to do something entirely hand-crafted on iPad not cut and pasted in a sense:



Mac Computer Concept (2018):


Bird through clouds (2018):

More variations:

Also, very Recent (late 2017) for blog post about iPad Anonymity via VPN:


Here is a piece I did a few years back for PC World (TechHive blog at the time) where I wrote and researched this entire story and added this image using photoshop and scaling from public image database (as well as Apple’s website for the devices and TV shot):



Edit: Some more of my recent work (late 2017):

Artificial Intelligence concept (2017):


Here are some samples of my latest content crearion (the iPads below were entirely hand drawn using my finger on the iPad screen and an app called Art Studio for iPad):


Minimalism concept (more here):



Using basic digital imagine apps on iPad combined with some of my photography and some of my traditional, pastel-based, artwork to create a mini collage of sorts:


Older/my beginner samples: Here are some examples of cloud computing logos I created from scratch that are entirely created by me in Photoshop:

Here is an older Appmodo post of mine where I used Att Studio for iPad to create the a steve jobs image. I experimented with layers to copy and paste images already available on the Web — without actual art creation this was pure Photoshop manipulation. Below, I took this further and used the actual Adobe Photoshop CS5 for desktop:
