I recently remembered to hit “RECORD” while I was working on a new vector design in Inkscape. The result is a timelapse video I uploaded on Youtube, featuring some awesome music by a Croatian band called Zlobnik. It took me a whole day to render video, but I did it! Yaaay! I’m quite happy with the outcome!
OK! Making shoe design on an old laptop is super challenging, but I just LOVE TO DO IT! Because it takes me a while to do it, I only made 3 different shoe designs so far – they are available in my Threadless artist shop: vonkowen.threadless.com/mens/shoes … But that’s not what I want to talk about right now…
Almost all my artwork is black and white vector designs created in an amazing open source software called Inkscape. I found out about it a few years ago when I was looking for a free alternative for Adobe Illustrator. I was just a beginner, my demo license has expired and I wasn’t sure I even like doing vector graphics and didn’t want to pay a lot for software I might not even use.
A few weeks ago lovely people from DesignByHumans contacted me with a question if I wanted to be their featured artist!
