ABSTRACT

Come up with a theme and design a realistic looking box using scans and photographs of objects and then create an illusion of a box

I went with a religious / spiritual route to play with (so to speak) I utilized my Photoshop skills to create light and shadow illusions, smoke, and burn effects

The symbolisms of the design are endless and I'd like to leave them open for interpretation

CONCEPT 

HOLE

THE IDEA WAS TO HAVE A HOLE OR A BREAK FOR THE SMOKE TO COME OUT

SMOKE 

CAREFULLY SMUDGED LAYERS OF WHITE SMOKE TO CREATE A REALISTIC SMOKE EFFECTS

SHADOWS

MANUALLY APPLIED SHADOWS TO CREATE THE ILLUSION OF DEPTH 

BURNING

EFFECTS WERE APPLIED 

TIME

WAS A CHOICE TO USE AS A TITLE

so, it's hypothetical. TIME, if you're

reading this, hire me.

 ARTICLE

TALKS ABOUT A  STRUGGLE WITH RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY WHICH GOES WELL WITH THE SYMBOLISM OF THE DESIGN

FIRE

CONSTRUCTED USING SEVERAL LAYERS OF LIGHT AND WARM COLORS

ABSTRACT

Designing a cover for Aperture magazine using blending techniques and incorporating 

conceptual imageries.

Was that a dream? Is the rhetorical question that I ask myself after every design session that involves blending visual arts, especially abstract photography. I integrated horror, mystical elements, and simplicity with typography to create this Aperture cove.
