Working on Digital Illustrations

Hello everyone!

For the past two weeks, I have been experimenting with the Wacom tablet, and I think I’m getting the hang of it! I actually really enjoy using it to draw. I’ve also learned that I can create stop motion animations in Photoshop, which is fantastic because I won’t have to learn a whole new program to do this! I’ve created a few illustrations so far, which you can read about below and check out in the gallery in the sidebar!

New digital illustration on Photoshop

I’ve recently been inspired to be more creative and artistic with my illustrations, which is why I put so much time and effort into this more creative interpretation of what it’s like to have a learning disability. I feel like medical illustrations don’t only have to be about conveying facts and anatomy. Instead, I think expressing a powerful feeling is sometimes equally important in describing what goes on in the brain or body, which is what I wanted to do with this illustration.  

For the past few weeks, I have also been working on another Desmos animation. This piece wasn’t originally intended to be for my independent study, but I decided to make it about the brain because I thought it would look really cool. I’m not quite done with it, but I will be sure to post the completed version when I am! Thanks for catching up with with I’ve been working on.

  1. Hi Alex,
    I am really intrigued by your current Desmos project. To me, it is a good representation of the jumbled thoughts that occur in a learning different brain when trying to decipher something. Is that what you had intended?

    1. Hi Ms. Whiting– thank you! and that was certainly a big part of my thinking when creating this piece.
