pop art with a twist

something i have become passionate about in these past few years is creating pop art pieces. whether it's a custom piece, a famous celebrity, or just your favorite pet, i enjoy sitting down in front of my computer, on my own terms, and creating these pop art designs.

since i am a graphic designer, i have always loved my field and my craft, but in recent months, i have become worn out on the daily criticisms and demands of the client-designer relationship. it can take an emotional toll on one's psyche, to say the least, but for the most part, the end result is more than satisfactory. this doesn't, however, deter me from finding a new passion within the same realm of digital art—but this time, it comes with a twist.

recently i discovered last year during a business trip to the new york stationery show, how i noticed what is HOT right now—silhouette art. i realize it's true with all things being cyclical, that seeing as the silhouette as an art form has been around since the 1700s, i immediately became intrigued with its update and facelift. with bright colors and flair to give it that "pop," i knew i had found my calling.

naturally, i started with my daughter as my first subject, and added a bright pink for the background and her name in a fancy script font—then voila! it looks gorgeous on the wall in her room. printed on gallery wrapped canvas and ready to hang, it gives the appearance of a masterpiece in your own home, for a fraction of the cost.

you can view my etsy shop here for more details on how to purchase one.
