In a bit of an illustrator mood tonight. Meant to go to bed earlier, but decided to start working on this little fellow instead.

boring classroom illustration.

bored

Look at this little dude! He’s so boring! Only boring people are bored. And he is a bored student, an illustration I made for a written report. Because I like to make extra work for myself, to go with the assignments for my online Adult Learning classes. It’s like bonus learning!

character illustration: Stephanie!

 

It’s Stephanie!

Stephanie did me a huge favour in helping me publish my Captivate demo course (getting around the limited availability that Adobe imposes on materials published with the 30-day trial). In return I promised to create an illustrated character based on a photo of her. Here it is!

more course screen designs!

I started building my ‘learn to bake… Sugar Cookies’ course in Captivate.

But it was sort of a headache (because of all the custom graphics I’m using) so I’ve gone back to lay the whole thing out in Illustrator instead. After I do that, it should be a cinch to rebuild it all in Captivate. I can just re-create all the basic shapes (rounded rectangles and all that) and pull the custom assets out of the Illustrator file as I need them.

Super excited to get this finished now!

character dev: Chef Tony

character dev: Chef Tony

When I went to school at Humber, we shared a building with a few culinary classrooms. The chefs-in-training had checkered pants as part of their uniform, so I guess there’s some reason for that?

Anyway, here’s teeny Chef Tony. He’s got his regulation checkered pants and everything!

I’ll be using him in a demo training course I’m making to show my abilities with e-learning authoring tools like Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline. More screenshots from that as I progress along.
