It’s finally happing. I’ve started an experimental daily illustration blog on Tumblr, creating one new, original illustration a day (jonathanharing.tumblr.com).
I’ve always loved illustration. Turning the pages of magazines like WIRED and Computer Arts, one of my favorite aspects has always been the beautiful illustrations filling the pages. Until recently I considered myself strictly a designer/media artist. But what truly got me into design in the first place (my early days as a nerd child) was 3D software and Photoshop. At the time, I had no idea that digital illustration could include non-hand-drawn work. I had never imagined my skill set coming together to create imagery in the form of illustrations. Just recently it dawned on me that if I put my professional design experience together with photography, fine arts, and cutting edge software and technology skills, then perhaps something interesting could come of it.
The blog is finally up, and is full of my daily explorations and experimentations into the world of illustration. So far 17 days are posted, but I’m just getting started!
