demo: intro to western riding

Hey! Here’s another demo presentation I did for a job interview. This time, I was free to pick any topic I liked… so I chose horses (gasp). Specifically, I created a short powerpoint presentation, and an accompanying PDF handout with additional content. You can check out the full document here. (And oh — I did get the job).

demo: photo basics course

A few weeks ago I got the chance to present a demo of my work for a job interview. The assignment was to create powerpoint mock-up of an eLearning course about using a digital camera. I thought it was a pretty fun little project! You can see a PDF of the final result here.

For the main image of the camera, I used official product photos. But for the camera shown in the step-by-step instructions, I actually used an Illustrator drawing — mainly so that I could limit the complexity of the interface and focus only on the necessary features.

Funny thing, though; the first thing I ever did in Illustrator was a camera! It was for an assignment in college. Couldn’t help but remember that experience as I put this demo together!

Well, it’s time for another portfolio! I’m looking for a new job opportunity, and I’m honestly very excited about it. I learned so much at my old job, and I’m looking forward to experiencing something new and even more challenging.

A new portfolio needs a new cover, so — here’s mine. This time I’m going with my favourite animal — BISON! And a whole herd of them, just to make things more complicated.

Here they are! I just love bison so much.

illustration: i cLOVE you stickers

You may know that I’m an organic veg grower, and my biggest crop is GARLIC. This year I’m selling some of my extra bulbs, and I wanted a cute sticker to put on the bags of garlic that I’ll be packaging for sale. And so… happy garlic bulb was born! He cLOVES you so much.

Ok! I know I’ve posted these a few times already, but here is a full set of illustrations that I did for a western-themed personal project a while back. I know some of them (i.e.: curly-horned sheep) don’t exactly scream wild wild west, but… well, it was Chinese New Year at the time and it seemed like a good idea.
