from Trixter for Wacom
In 2014, I began writing articles for the Wacom Info Channel. After having written several articles Wacom asked that I change the structure of my articles for 2015. The articles would deviate from the traditional question and answers style interviews to that of an article with a story arch.
Wacom has allowed me freedom to choose my topics and I wanted to do something spectacular for 2015! I decided to write a feature on Visual FX Art Director Luis Guggenberger, who works for Trixter in Munich.
Luis and Trixter have worked on several MARVEL films and I thought it would be brilliant to feature them because of the upcoming release of Avengers Age of Ultron.
For my articles I usually include the following: the text (of course), sized photos, notes, a photo placement guide, a caption guide and other items that help may help Wacom set up the article. However, Wacom asked me if I would like to illustrate the articles. I of course agreed and started thinking how I could accomplish this task.
I decided that illustrating my subjects would be a interesting way to share my creative side with my the Wacom followers. I proposed that I do this and by utilizing the colors from the Wacom logo, so that the images are branded towards Wacom. My only restriction was that I could only use two colors from the Wacom Logo.
While interviewing Luis, I asked him to provide a picture and he did so. Then I began creating the illustration using Adobe Illustrator, so that it could be scaled to various sizes and easily changed.
When finished I provided Wacom with the original Adobe Illustrator file and various ways to use the image to promote the article via social media.
