New Designs for Valentine’s Day
I love the idea of putting some of my art on everyday objects. Back in 2012 I discovered redbubble, a site where I can design and sell fun iPad iPhone iPod and Samsung Galaxy smartphone cases. In fact, I bought myself an iPhone case that I designed and every day it makes me smile when I look at it. I’ve also given iPhone and iPad cases as gifts, a great way to share my art with my friends and family.
Most of my photographs are licensed for use on the net or are sitting on a hard drive, so it is so rare and satisfying to see them made into something tangible. Redbubble has added the ability to offer Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 smartphone cases in addition to those for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5/5S since I first blogged about designing smartphone cases.
This year, for Valentine’s Day, I designed some digital images on Photoshop, combining various textures with color overlays and heart shaped brushes to make a series of abstract designs from dark red passionate hearts to light and airy pastel heart designs. I thought they would make great Valentines Day gifts. If you’re a designer yourself, you may want to check out the “Damned Hearts” brushes designed by r4fay which I used on the red “Passionate Hearts” iPad case below.
