Samples Of My Simple Art

Updated on April 5, 2011

art /ärt/ Noun

The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

I really enjoying creating things that are crisp, clean, simple and powerful.

Typography

This is my first attempt at typography. Typography is the art or process of setting and arranging types and fonts. This is my favorite form of art to create because I love words, I love fonts and creating an image from them is awesome.

I also love Michael Jackson and decided to use his words.

Ad Campaigns

The first picture is an awareness poster I created for World Vision. They are a humanitarian organization that works with children, families and communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling causes of poverty.  I have two little girls that I sponsor from this site.

The second one is very simple. This is a sign I made for the free hugs campaign. This is where a few people go out into the public carrying a sign like this one just to give free hugs. The two sentences are my motto.

Attitude

I made this next poster because I love basketball and I love the "No Fear" mentality.  When I'm on the court there is no such thing as giving up!

What Matters

When it comes to saving the world, and listening and learning to influential people it really inspires me.  Especially when Mother Earth doesn't have to say a word!

Video

I will be shooting a short documentary for the Free Hugs campaign next Saturday.  I will be posting the video after I edit, which is another form of art I enjoy, so please look for that and let me know what you think as well!

Thanks for looking.

      Incredible work, especially with the Michael Jackson. 8 hours well spent to create that iconic silhouette with words.

      Very Nice!

      I can't draw stick figures, really. My hubs are as close to art as I can seem to get. Gosh, now I'd love to get that free hug!!! If you've spent much time on Lower Greenville Avenue, in Dallas - then I might have already had one. . . . .as I'd a habit of drinking, and just walking up to attractive women and hugging them anywhere on the street. I really don't know how I always got away with that ( and got the hugs! ) guess I look about as dangerous as I am.
