The Amazing Sword Swallower

Sometimes it’s fun to look at past work. Recently, I came across a series of illustrations I did for Emspace Group in Omaha some years ago. They are an innovative group of creative thinkers and wanted to showcase their skills in a calendar. Having previously worked as a designer myself, I understand how to work with illustration to incorporate space for copy. I created all the headline type for each in Adobe Illustrator, researching particular typefaces unique to the nostalgic style I wanted to achieve. It was fun working in a sketchy, painterly style and incorporating the “E” symbol for Emspace in each illustration.
