WHITE INK

Hybrid


Today the digital world is around us and has become component in our current forms of expressions. Digital graffiti mimics the way graffiti artists traditionally paint in a digital way. Each project begins with a learning and gathering period. Once a word or name is decided a hand sketch is created. The sketch is imported into adobe illustrator and rendered in the same way it would be rendered on a wall or in a sketchbook. Gradients are designed to start from light to dark and middle values are adjusted to create rich tonal gradients. Multiple layer masks are designed to create new movements with color defining new blends. The contrast of hard line and none outlined shapes define a unique composition.

Scaling


The beauty of digital graffiti is the ability to scale. Vector work is 1200 dpi multiplied times infinity making it a great solution for projections and large scale printing. Graphics are created using tight zoom ins to refine details. Hit print and scale is infinite.
