I am just an other dweller of this domain. The services I provide are shown on the Home page. Mainly I create realistic vector drawings, portraits, paintings, logos and illustrations with the magnificent Affinity Designer, like this 'The Jaguar and the Rose'. Occasionally I use Affinity Photo for bitmap editing jobs and portraits and Affinity Publisher for Desktop Publishing for print. In the future I may switch to the brilliant and sophisticated VectorStyler for creating vector artwork. I am currently intensively exploring this mind blowing program.
Remnant artwork from the time in which I still worked in CorelPaint - one of my proto Affinity era applications. Fiddling about with effect functions without a clear plan at times can lead to eye pleasing non-figurative imagery.
When I'm not creating visual art, I write entries for several of my blogs - my portfolio blog, opinion blog and poetry blog or just write to keep from being bored. Boredom often is the phase that precedes inspiration and creativity, which is a good remedy against mediocracy. it makes life less miserable, which should not be the default state of living. One of the best ways to get immediate physical relief from being uninspired average, is to fart. For that reason farting in public should not be embarrassing, but encouraged.
From time to time I indulge in creating analog art, which is either (analog) airbrushing, pencil drawing or painting with acrylics on canvas or paper. These crafts have a therapeutic effect without the need of a shrink. Sometimes I have Metallica, other times Danny Gatton, Black Pumas or Angelo Debarre playing while doodling. Or just the singing of the birds in my ecological backyard. Occasionally I listen to Dark Journalist, Joseph P Farrell or Forum Borealis on youtube which is some sort of relief against the gloom offered by mainstream propaganda.
On rare occasions, I create 3D art. Sometimes to support the 2D images I draw to obtain the correct perspective, other times to just create a 3D object. I am by far no expert in this area, but I am able to create simple objects. I used to use Rhinoceros 3D for this purpose and at times DesignSpark. But recently, since Blender significantly updated its UI, that program may perhaps be a good alternative. However, I still need to get familiar with it to use it in a proper way.
Since discovering the brilliant webdesign program Nicepage, approximately a year and a half ago, I was persuaded to offer this type of service, since it requires no coding skills whatsoever and allows to entirely focus on creativity, while putting no grid constraints on artistic interpretation. This is a screendump of an old version of the VectorWhiz website.
It often is instantly visible if logo and business card designs are based on well deliberated and empathic aspects with good graphical skill or lack any of this. This card is multi-layered with cut outs in the top layer.
I have created dozens of high quality educational books for the advanced composites industry, particularly for the aviation, space, automotive and marine market segments. All books contain 2D and 3D instructional drawings, tables, forms, mathematical formulae and graphs that were made from scratch. Due to the pandemic situation many of such documents had to be rebuilt to make them suitable for online use, because they were designed for print initially. Online docs of course allow much more interactivity.
