Pizza Burglar by Derek Wilson

Happy Tuesday!

For those of you who are creative, you know that when you do quick thumbnail sketches to come up with new ideas, often times things you wouldn't normally think of come out. Well Pizza Burglar came out the other day. 

Below is the thumbnail, followed by the print and some color variations. 

Who doesn't love pizza? Apparently aliens love it.

Here is the 2nd sticker in my Earthbound fan art sticker series. Poo was fun to do, and he took me longer than expected to finish, because I kept added details. Also I am extremely detail oriented so sometimes it takes longer to get the effect I want. 

Hope you enjoy! On to Paula!

Earthbound was always one of my favorite video games growing up so I decided to do some more fan art. This was created all in Adobe Illustrator. Mr. Saturns are jumping in the background, which were an alien like creature you met on your journey. Now I am sounding super dorky, but they are cute in an ugly cute way. 

Hope you enjoy!

Good morning!

I just completed this nasty crazy eyed monster that is part of the Mutant Eyeball family, but he is spear heading a series of monster stickers I will be working on. This was an insane amount of fun to do with trying to figure out how many eyeballs can I place on him.  

Completed all in Adobe Illustrator. 
Happy Tuesday! (I need coffee...)

Fiona's episodes are some of my favorite on Adventure Time. They have a more mature feel to them in my option and its pretty cool to see all the original character do a gender swap. Hope you enjoy my digital vector art take on Fiona!

Happy Monday!

Finn Fanart from Adventure Time by Derek Wilson

Adventure Time is one of my FAVORITE cartoons of all time, so I decided to do a little fan art print of Finn. Finn is awesome, and I think I may have to do Fiona next. This print is Fin...ished! (bahahaaaa!) 

 Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens Review by Derek Wilson

I recently treated myself to a new lens for my Cannon Rebel T5i. This Canon EF 50mm lens is actually fantastic and I would recommend it for any level of photographers out there. I have been able to experiment with it with some nature and my dog, and am pretty pleased with the performance. Also, the price tag is pretty reasonable at a little over a $100 bucks, depending on which package you purchase. If you are interested in checking it out, the particular package I purchased came with some filters and other various accessories that always come in handy. Here is where you can buy it. Below are some images I recently took to test out the lens.

Any photographers out there in the market for a new lens I would highly recommend this one. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens has a quick autofocus that I am enjoying so far. Other reviews I have read say it is actually great for video as well, but I have yet to try that out. Overall I am pleased with the purchase!

Hope you all had an awesome 4th!

Updates to the Shop! by Derek Wilson

Happy Sunday!

I haven't been posting as much as I moved into a new apartment and have been trying to settle in. You never know how much you own until you have to move it, so its been a cleansing items and donating them which feels good!

I have been decorating the new place and just hung up this lovely piece of an old Buick car in black and white in the bathroom, which this print is now available at my shop here. This photo is printed on 24x32 canvas, and fits pretty nice between the sink and the shower.  I am really happy with the printing, and contrast of the photo in person. 

I will be adding some sizing updates to the shop, to make the selections easier to navigate. If you have any questions on any sizing please feel free to message me! 

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday, as the weather is gorgeous! More to come soon!

Prints of Cleveland by Derek Wilson

Happy Tuesday!

I have been experimenting with Photoshop and some photos I have taken in the past few months. I am working on a series of prints that are a little more graphic and colorful rather than the normal Black and White or color prints I do. Here are three prints I have started in a series of about 5 in the works.

I have an obsession with yellows and greens with black so I figure why not focus on these colors first. I will post more when they are complete.

Clevelanders- weather is finally breaking! I don't want to say that the white stuff is over, because I said that already this year and got smacked in the face with more, but I will say the outlook looks good at this point. It is northern Ohio so anything is possible as we all know. :)

Cheers and I hope you all are having a good start to your week!

Cleveland Co Labs Printed Flyer by Derek Wilson

I just wanted to share the printed version of the Cleveland Co Labs flyer I designed. I was super excited to help out Cleveland Co Labs market their event for charity.

The flyer was designed with the idea of two light bulbs going off, as in both sides of the business would gain knowledge and ideas.

I am very happy with the finished printed piece!

Cleveland Panoramic Photography by Derek Wilson

Cleveland Panoramic Print © Derek Prince Wilson 2017

Hello!

I am currently working on some photography I did of downtown Cleveland Ohio. I have lived in downtown Cleveland for 4 years, but am a Cleveland native on the west side of the city. I took many black and white panoramic photos of the city, and am editing and prepping them for sale online. This is a test print I had printed, and overall I am pleased with how it printed. 

I will keep you posted on where these will be at for sale! Happy Friday!
