Christmas Ships Project for School

November 14, 2015 at 3:59 am | Posted in 2015, artist, arts & crafts, Christmas, Christmas Songs, Christmas Traditions, design, graphic design, Holidays | Leave a comment

I’ve been working on this design project for my typography class. I chose to do an event series centered on the Christmas Ships that parade up and down the rivers near Portland, Oregon with Christmas lights. Find out more at http://christmasships.org if you are interested. Here is some of my work so far. There is a whole bunch more process work that I’m not posting, but this is where I’m at right now. We have to create a whole bunch of different parts for the whole campaign. You can click the below images to enlarge them too.

IMG_4269This is our 2013 Christmas tree. It has a few Hello Kitties, but mostly it has my Winter collection of Starbucks Bears. :) There are also a few ornaments on it, but not many compared to how many ornaments we actually have! lol. The Winter Starbucks bears also include some of my Chinese New Year Bearista bears. :) Happy Holidays everybody! :)

Made this pirate kitty for my friend’s son. His pants are removable. Bit of an OOPS in the fabric placement for the crotch area on the front. Luckily the pants cover it! haha. He’s also got an eye patch (but no eyes) and a bow tie. I hope he enjoys his matey! Arrrggggh!!! :)

My supernice friend Debby gave me some Hello Kitty holiday fabric and I decided to make a Hello Kitty ornament doll with it. I made two other smaller ones, but their hands were shaped more weird, so I enlarge the pattern I designed and came up with this Hello Kitty! I thought she could do with a skirt/apron too! hehe. The red stripes are the back. Even though she has no real face, I think she is pretty cute! :)

JOY!

I just finished this JOY decoration. I turned my wreath into the ‘O’ and then I made a ‘J’ and a ‘Y.’ Not too shabby I say. It isn’t perfect, but I like it a lot! Yay!
