I started out just trying to draw a keyboard while I was bored in my code school class, a keyboard turned into a mouse, a mouse turned into a Wacom tablet, then at that point I was inspired to finish out the rest of the desktop to replace the main image of my portfolio, which used to be a stock photo of a designers desktop.
I based my X-wing over the Death Star poster off Jeff Halsey's posters for Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. I wanted to draw up a Star Wars poster that fit in with that series. I tweeted this image at Jeff explaining my fondness for his work, and he retweeted my drawing to his followers and responded the following quote.
@ShawnFarnum love it dude!— Jeff Halsey (@jeffhalsey) October 24, 2016
This was my third drawing (one month after learning to draw in Sketch). Star wars Force awakens was about to come out and I needed to express my excitement through creating this illustrated BB-8.
I’ve needed devices in some of my web development projects. Instead of paying for some stock photography I decided to draw up a few devices to put screenshots of various products and companies I’ve worked with.
This was my first attempt at drawing anything major in Sketch, I must have been a week in at that point and had just recently finished playing through the Portal & Portal 2 video game series. The Cake is a lie and also this is your companion cube.
I decided to draw my family into this Christmas card, it was our first Christmas season in Bozeman. I decided to reimagine both of my children Ethan and Zoe as well as my girlfriend Lisa. We are all a bunch of nerds and I thought that I would capture each of the things that we are all nerdy about with our t-shirts. Oh and who can pass up southparkifying your family!
I wanted to write a separate piece about the sign from the Christmas card. This sign exists on most of the major roadways into Bozeman. Mine is a little cartoonish but it's supposed to be. If you ever decide to visit or live in Bozeman be on the look out for these signs, it was fun drawing them.
