Dribbble I’m Playing! Finally!

Dribbble Player at Last!

Last week, I was honoured to receive an invitation to join the creative world of Dribbble! An invite only community to showcase creative work and network with fellow creatives.

My invitation was from Robert Bree, a logo designer and handlettering specialist from Munich. Firstly, it is customary to express thanks through a creative shot, and introduce myself to the Dribbble community. I set about creating my illustration. With Autumn upon us, it felt only right to come up with something seasonal.

Secondly, this debut shot usually contains the Dribbble ‘Basketball’ icon… So, how could I combine this with an Autumnal themed creative shot? Then the idea hit me… Conkers! I searched the site for other shots of conkers and found very few! Perfect, this theme also had a uniqueness.

Dribbble Conkers

Using the Basketball icon as the winning conker, smashing the opposing conker, I uploaded my debut shot. I got a warm reception and I can’t wait to start sharing more of my work with other creatives.

Lastly, after creating this piece, I decided to create a version of it with two conkers – seeing that this subject was also lacking in stock illustrations, this is now available as a stock image for download on Dreamstime.

LETRASET TRIA

Having bought a couple of Johanna Basford‘s colouring books for grown-ups as Birthday gifts for other people, I found myself hankering for one of my own. After quite a bit of unsuccessful hint dropping, a copy of ‘Secret Garden’ accidentally fell into my shopping trolley shortly before Christmas, that had ‘Present for Mummy’ written all over it! Sure enough on Christmas morning, there it was… My very own colouring book!

Colour Your World

Color CC

Colour Scheme Generator

I have always had an affinity with colour wheels and colour charts. As a child, I remember walking round DIY Stores with my parents, and being in awe of the colour chart stand for paints, with its huge array of shade cards. I’d always pick several up and put them in my pocket to take home.

I can only assume that all creative’s have the same fascination and connection with colour that I have and are aware of just how important it is, to the world of design.
