Joyful Joyent

I know, I know LONG TIME no post!! I'm here to remedy this with new(ish) works to share!



Back in July and August, before beginning the full time job on "Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!" I did a series of drawings for Joyent, a start up company up in San Fransisco. Joyent is headed by a very nice group of gentlemen who were really FANTASTIC to work with. I had a lot of fun making these drawings too. A big thanks to David Young, Brian Bell, John Gruber for making the experience very pleasant and easy. Additional thanks to Cameron Moll for his lovely shout out here. Well, I can't say it was all easy because it sucked up every waking moment of my life for weeks BUT they were generally, very pleased with what I gave them... which is always what you strive for as a commerical artist. The process worked...we went over my rough storyboards and character sketches, discussed, made changes, I then moved on to color comps (my illustrator drawings without textures) on to final with textutes and tweaks. Overall, any changes they requested made great sense for their product and made my drawings stronger too. I'm a fan of these guys and wish'em tons of success.

I'll post an additional drawing or two in the coming days but for now, here's a couple more:

Welcome back. Sounds like you've been having fun and staying busy. Nice stuff. Always fun to see what you're up to.

Ward Jenkins said...

Lovely work, Paige! I love the bottom one the best for some reason. Something about the way the woman looks with her eyes, and the way she's waving at the 'dude.' Great stuff.

Ryan said...

Paige, I'm glad to see you haven't completely disappeared. It looks like you have been hard at work. Your attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. Good luck with your continuing adventures.

Roz said...

These are so great, love the expressions! I'm so glad you posted and shared them with us. All the best to you and hope you are enjoying your time at the new job...well not so new anymore!

Adan Ayala said...

Welcome back. We never gave up hope for a new post...

Glad to hear that, though it was tough going there, it al worked out and had fun at what you're doing.

How much input did you have on each character before you started working on them? Like does the 20something blonde woman with the urban black glasses have a name, background, etc.? Or did you sketch several characters, got feedback on them and refined? Or are the characters slighly modified versions of your friends? :)

Great work. I even had to visit Joyent to check out your other drawings. Welcome back.

checked out the Joyent site for more of your work. congrats - great job!

paige said...

thanks youse guys!! I'm thrilled to see you've all popped on by after my lack of entries over the past couple months!! thank you, thank you.

Adan: basically, Joyent gave me a list of character names and I kind of went from there with the sketches. They immediately approved those. I got lucky.

Ward: I like that one too. She's letting the IT guy that she really won't be needing his services.

Hi Guy and Roz!! I'll be getting on over to your sites promptly! I need to catch up on what's goin' on!

Cool illustrations... Your characters look like everyone I once worked with in my life but I don't think there was so many smiles on Mondays....

Anyone who appreciates your work is OK with me.

Paige,

Love this series for Joyent. Especially the fellow with the go-tee and scull t shirt. I am glad the job was a success for you, something we all strive for.
Happy New Year and all the best!

bernadette said...

trés amusantes ces illustrations bravo

Kevin White said...

...they should let you loose on the layout in the blog area also (http://joyeur.com/) since the design departure there doesn't mesh with the rest of the brand. Your material is already a nice compliment to the U.I.

I love your art!
