The Wild Wild World Of Hominy!

Last month, the assignment for the Lilla Rogers Bootcamp was to make an editorial illustration based on an article about beginning a meditation practice. I loved it. Editorial Illustration is a field I'd love to expand into. So, my plan is to work at building that sector of my portfolio. I found an article on Huffington Post about hominy. I have never had it, and really knew nothing about it. So, it was a fun, educational project for me. I came up with some imagery based on the article, as well as a few things I read about hominy. Who knew it was in so many foods that I love!? You can see the article here. Above is my illustration. You can watch the animated version below. Enjoy!

Animated GIF of Nautical Design

Yesterday, I had so much fun playing with the latest theme from the Lilla Rogers Bootcamp that I am currently enrolled in. I finished this little design at the end of the day and was just thrilled with the way it came out. I was even able to plug in my little anchors pattern that I made a while back into the background to finish it off. Yippee!

Well, I got carried away with trying to make a GIF of the image this morning. I always feel the giddy enthusiasm of a child when I work with animation. There's just such joy in bringing things to life in an animation that I just can't get enough of. Whether it's making an apple just move across the table in a stop-motion or doing something like this, it just makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too! :)
