I'm Holly, and this my blog. I'm a web designer and developer currently living in Houston, Texas.
This is the place where I post about my life, my work, my thoughts, my opinions, "and the other things," that make up who I am.
I finished the graphic design piece I posted about before. I’m really happy with how it came out.
I created this poster as graphic design piece for my portfolio. I started by sketching out the illustration and then drawing the line-art. After that, I scan the drawings into the computer and cleaned the lines up in Photoshop. I also added some effects with some layer overlays. Lastly, I added the text in Illustrator.
The fictional music venue mentioned in the poster, “Fitzpatrick’s,” is a reference to Fitzgerald’s, a actual music venue in Houston. Also while the first five bands listed on the poster (Sunlight Demons, No Glitter No Blood, Crowns of Crayons, The Prismatics, & Tangle of Thorns) are fictional, the last five (Wild Moccasins, Buxton, New York City Queens, The Tontons, Featherface & A Sea Es) are actual local Houston bands.
