It’s been quite a while since I drew Arby (derived from the abbreviation for Recreational Bus: RB), so I seized the chance and went for it. I even created a logo for Yonda Globe, who loves Earth Day and, according to the artwork, has been “bringing the world together since 1995.” 1995 of course can refer to just about anything, like my celebrating Earth Day in 1st grade. And I believe children attending elementary school would be thrilled to see my holiday/event-based work. They deserve to experience the pleasures of education the same way I did.
Only four days late to post this little gem.
From top left to bottom right we have Jacken, Rags, Tipper, Yonda, Boomer, Vivian, Wobble, Clumpy, Chickpea, Inchbean, Featherly, Luman, Stella, and Dwight.
Fun fact: 10 of them (that excludes Chickpea, Featherly, Stella, and Dwight) are revised versions of previously devised cards, with Jacken, Tipper, Wobble, and Clumpy first being made in 2011 and the others in 2012.
Today is Groundhog Day (and yes, we have six more weeks of winter) on the second day of February. It also marks the third year after my mother’s passing away. What I have here is a drawing I made exactly one year ago, reminding me that even in her absence, she helps my creativity continue to flourish.
Love always, CJ Signorino
Another one of my unique ideas developed through the use of some of my characters. And who would’ve thought a chicken-shaped kitchen timer would be a perfect fit for making pastries and stuff in my fictional world of toys, objects, and vehicles?
What I love most about colors is you can mix them in amazing gradients. My latest work, which was completed just before my 30-day trial on Adobe Illustrator expired, shows a nicely silhouetted Jacken in the foreground watching the sun rise. If this doesn’t prove how creative and artistic I really am, I don’t know what does.
What I have here is an update to the picture I made to remind my family and friends of the team my mother formed before her passing away: Team Brenda.
Notice how bright the colors are? I even removed the shadows to make the file smaller. And if you’re wondering why there’s a big open space on the left, I tried to make this picture a cover photo on my Facebook page.
