Design Process for “I Like How You Roll”
I have been into retro 70s and 80s “stuff”, like cassette tapes, classic cars, and roller skates. I drew a bunch of roller skates in my sketchbook one day during my art residency last summer as part of my daily sketchbook practice using my art prompt generator that I coded in p5.js.
I polished up one of those skates for this card. I really loved how my “You Rock!” design had some type that burst out of the frame, so I did a similar treatment on this card as well.
Here is my winning entry: “I Like How You Roll”
I’m thrilled to be a part of Minted’s artist community and look forward to other opportunities with them. Through them, I’ve had designs picked up by major retailers. I participate in Minted’s design challenges to build my illustration skills and to help them include more queer voices in their offerings. I hope they continue to support independent artists and try harder to include a more diverse group of artists and styles than are currently represented in their collections.
