The summer and fall of 2014 were obviously not spent writing in my blog (sorry I will try to do better this year). Instead they were spent thinking and learning. I spent a lot of my time thinking about what I want to do with all that I know and came up with how much I still needed to learn. Funny that.
From all that thinking I came up with two things in particular that I wanted to do. First, I wanted to rebrand my web business and change it up a bit and the second was to work on a web comic.
Both needed websites and artwork. More precisely, vectorized digital artwork.
So how does a drawing in my sketchbook become a vectorized logo? Adobe Illustrator.
Sketchbook drawing of web services logo for Three Loud Crows
So I drew my new logo for my web services business Three Loud Crows in my sketchbook. Then I scanned the image into Adobe Photoshop, changed the colour mode to grayscale and cleaned it up. Enter, Adobe Illustrator … I placed the logo onto new artboard, image traced it, and painted it.

Et voilà! Vectorized digital artwork. It’s a big piece that fits nicely into the puzzle of what I’ll be working on this year.
