Weekend doodles

Dismissing any innuendo or double entendre, I find the weekends are best for sitting at home with a coffee, pencil in one hand and scrapbook in the other whilst watching morning cartoons/music videos. I find its a great way to expand the imagination and get the creative juices flowing without even realising it. Any doodles I do I post on instagram (Written_light). Does anyone else do something similar? Anyway, here’s a few random sketches, feedback welcome. Enjoy!

What do Certain Colors Mean? Color is a powerful psychological trigger. It creates strong emotions. Here are some popular colors and the emotions they typically generate:

RED:

  • Love, warmth, excitement, passion, known internationally as a buying color.
  • Attention getter.
  • In small amounts it is the best color to stimulate sales, but in large amounts can turn off more subtle customers. Works best to draw attention to a specific message or area you want customers to focus on
  • Negative: danger, anger

Blue:

  • Power, professionalism, trustworthiness, calm
  • Best seller and most favorite color for people throughout the world.
  • Considered the color of communication, tranquility and peacefulness – dark blue leads to authority and power
  • Negative: boredom, sadness

Green:

  • Nature, life, money, relaxing
  • Considered a passive, not a stimulating color
  • Negative: decay, toxicity, illness

Orange:

  • Affordability, creativity, fun, youth
  • Might be the most irritating color and least favorite in the world.
  • Direct mail…

Blessed are the coffee makers

One of the first designs I did just for fun, when I first started my course. I love coffee plus there’s a line in Monty Python’s Life of Brian, “I think he said blessed are the cheese makers”. I found it funny so I put my own twist on it. Everyone that has their morning cup of coffee should feel blessed to start the day off in such a way. The first photo are my ideas I drew in my A5 notebook and the second is the final background that was made when I first started using Illustrator. At some stage I may finalize Saint Barista. Feedback welcome. Enjoy!
