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…
There is another great Threadless called “I put a spell on you”! Well, you do know I enjoy the magic and witchy things, so I was all over this challenge, with 13 designs this time… Yeah, 13 😉
I went a little Terry crazy lately!!! It all started when I created a skull that looked like it’s smiling. Later, I added some eyeballs, I gave the creature a cool shirt and I named him Terry The Ghoul.
I managed to find some sassy stuff among my artwork! It would be nice of you if you voted for me! These are my sassy submissions to Threadless:
I LOVE HOODIES! It’s the most perfect piece of clothing ever and I can’t wait until it’s hoodie season again!
My great plan was to design my own tarot deck based on the Rider-Waite tarot deck. But, as I made a couple and realized it will be very boring to repeat someone else’s work, I started to experiment with the tarot card designs…
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.
I like participating in Threadless design contests and when I saw the LOWBROW2 was open for entries – I was all over it! I think my designs can more or less, all be in the lowbrow art genre…
A few weeks ago lovely people from DesignByHumans contacted me with a question if I wanted to be their featured artist!
