For the month of February, I’m uploading a daily design to sharpen my skills.
Why? Lately, I’ve been coding ALOT. I love working that part of my brain, but I’ve been missing spending time in illustrator just making stuff.
I’ll upload stuff for clients or for personal projects, but the point is I’m forcing myself to ship something.
Today’s design is inspired by the really nice Mahlkonig EK43 Grinder I sit across from all day every day at the coffee shop I work out of. It’s truly a beautiful piece of machinery and I had a blast making this really simple side profile illustration of it. I included all of my revisions to show the thought process as I moved towards the finish. I started with basic shapes and moved through various iterations until I came to something acceptable.
