My name is Meg Vazquez and I’m a Junior at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). My concentrations are Illustration and Graphic Design along with an emphasis on printmaking. I want to use this Tumblr as a window into my mind, a way to share thoughts and ideas that I have along with things that I see that I really love. I hope you and enjoy :) and tell your friends!
Ichthyophobia-The fear of fish
*Created in 9/2010 for Illustration Concepts I, design a set of 8 stamps with the theme of phobias
My current Illustration Concepts project was to come up with a design for an issue of the Urbanite magazine. The theme was innovation and that was pretty much our only guideline. My idea was to take the common business man (of the…future!) and innovate a way for him to travel faster while multi-tasking. Here’s the process, I’m sure I’ll end up tweaking it but I’m pretty happy with it right now.
For Illustration II we were given the prompt listed above and had to come up with a solution using only pen and ink (cross hatching) after that we had to go back to the drawing board and render using only solid shapes. I illustrated a priest with no pants on (and a seemingly seductive smile?). I really like my cross hatching piece but the relief copy just feels lacking.
