August - Blue Steel

Client: nevermindful
Role: Design, Illustration
Tools: Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema4D
Year: 2018
A suprise for an unsuspecting desert valley — ‘August - Blue Steel’ was a calendar commission for nevermindful 2018, and a fun opportunity to explore a combination of two of my favorite things these days: pixel art and 3D to create an unconventional calendar for the month of August.
