I've been trying to teach myself more motion graphics in After Effects, so I decided to make a card for Mother's Day this year.
About a year ago while I was at Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners we were tasked with coming up with an idea that encourages "everyday adventures."
One of the ideas I pitched was a mini-adventure generator in the vein of WhatTheFuckShouldIMakeForDinner.com.
After a good amount of legwork, the brief ended up getting put on the shelf. Then COVID-19 hit and the shelter-in-place orders brought the idea back. You can see the final result at WhatOnEarthShouldIDoWithMyKids.com.
I'm from Georgia, where the current Governor is an idiot who is reopening the state before COVID-19 has been handled and thus putting people's lives at risk. He also stole an election by striking hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls as Secretary of State just before the election. Given all that, I made this.
After I finished Randy's, I was still feeling super motivated to draw so I decided to take on another Los Angeles landmark. While drawing Randy's I realized that my style lent itself to painting so I made a few modifications. to see how it'd look. Which do you prefer?
As a side note, I took the original mural and dropped it in in Photoshop. I'm not skilled enough to recreate real art on my own.
