Kinetic Typography

Hey everyone! Nicky here
Check out my kinetic typography video I’m working on currently for Advanced Typography! More to come when it’s finished

When in Doubt, Sketch!

The stereotypical artist/designer:

  1. funked up hipster clothing
  2. crazy hair
  3. SKETCHBOOK IN HAND!

3. on the list is the most important tool for any creative individual.

Why is this?

It helps to recollect inspiration around you.

I have heard people say to carry a sketchbook wherever you go, and I may just take them up on that suggestion. Considering that I live in a diverse and unique city, many interesting things may occur and I may want to remember those things I see, hear, etc. You can do a quick doodle or a full on drawing, just as long as you place it on the paper is better than nothing.

Here is the stack of my sketchbooks:

And here is a drawing I made for my cover page for my Grade 12 Art sketchbook (Andy Warhol inspired and I used my Promarkers of course πŸ˜€ )
