This is Maria Loor's blog about the creative process on design, art and illustration and life sometimes.

MLK poster in progress

Starting the research process for the MLK "I have a Dream" poster, part of my series of "Faces of Love & Inspiration".  The first part of the research process is letter size brush & ink quick drawings. Later on I will move to larger scale sketches. This series started with the poster to celebrate graphic designers some years ago (published by Taschen) and after that I did the one for Ella Fitzgerald shown earlier on this sketchblog.

AIGA Centennial Celebration

Last night my chair design won the People's Choice Award at the AIGA Centennial Celebration at the Miami Ad School. The chair design event has taken place in different cities all across the United States to celebrate the 100 years of AIGA, the professional association for design. Yei! So grateful!!  — Picture courtesy of AIGA. #AIGA100
