Something funny happens when you take a passionate traveler and force them to stay more or less tethered to one location for four years: they start to fascinate. Towards the end of my last semester at art school I ran into one of old professors who excitedly asked me “Are you still doing travel design?!” I had never thought of myself as a “travel designer” but as I began to put my portfolio together I realized I did have quite the repertoire of projects that I had steered with my wanderlust.
With graduation behind me and a shiny new Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts hanging on my metaphorical wall, I thought I’d share a some of my favorite travel related art I created over my four years at art school.
The first assignment I’m going to post is one I call Sea Snaps. The assignment was to redesign a disposable camera, and with my passion for diving my mind went straight underwater. I bought a disposable underwater camera, pried it apart, and made this, one of my favorite projects of all time:
In addition to my travel motif, I tend to use pattern a lot in my work, and I love this one. My fingers were covered in gold spraypaint and I was itching to go diving, but I remember presenting this in class as one of my proudest critiques.
You can see more of my design work on , or you can stay tuned for the next week as I share a few more of my favorite creations!
