This was a particularly interesting project. Artist Nan Holmes needed invitations for an art exhibit. The pieces centered around gestural hand illustrations she had created demonstrating specific movements that Tibetan monks would use in their daily meditations. What I did was take one of her hand gestures (which was originally sketched just like a black and white gestural drawing) and imbue it with a colorful “aura” I created.

LoweStudio Inc was founded by me, Raphael Lowe, a Honolulu based illustrator and web designer. I presently design and manage a few dozen commercial websites, but my main focus these days is acting as the head developer for Kapiolani Community College and teaching New Media Arts.
I started this blog the day I quit my last job to set out on my own two feet as an independent graphic designer. I had no motivations other than to document my experiences for my own self reflection and gratification from time to time. Does this blog have anything to do with design?...not always, but my daily experiences shape how I design.
