Digital Design

I have been following along with the PhotoShop Daily creative challenges this month. I did a challenge with VooDooVal in the past and had a lot of fun. She is an amazing digital designer and a great teacher. She hosted a Ps challenge earlier this month about creating movie posters. Yesterday, I began a challenge with Kathleen Illustrated. She calls it Camp Photoshop. I love these challenges. I usually can’t participate because of my workload…but bring on Summer Vacay!

Here are some of the challenges we worked on this month:

If you are interested in participating please join us on Behance. You can follow some awesome illustrators and graphic designers there too. There is so much inspiration there daily. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks for following me and my art process.

My best,
Emily Warren

Remember Reflect Reform In this work, I have been exploring phenomena of memory augmentation. I experimented with reflections and cinematic images by juxtaposing photographs, paint, wood, and mylar. The direction of the work includes painting intimate, reflective, observations of augmented memories.  I began by building a cabinet of curiosities as a way to form a tableau painting and experiment with different media. Inspired by the relief paintings by artist Sally Han, I built a model of a Victorian cabinet using tenets of Darwin's theory of evolution. I painted on a variety of surfaces including wood, photographs, and adding raw lumber to the pieces. In this process, I disassembled the cabinet to give autonomy to each piece. Although I diverted from the original idea of a final installation, there was an impulse to paint larger. Adding mylar was yet another way to accentuate reflection as a part of the critical dialogue with the work. The final result offers an opportunity to remember, reflect, and reform.
