Stickers – Craig Santo

I created the first two images during lab section – I didn’t know that we needed to do a logo for the layered one, but I’d say it’s pretty close to the twitter logo…

My Griffin sticker is a corgi-bird hybrid, created by cutting apart a bird silhouette (removing most of the bird, and then breaking the wings and tail apart) and unioning them with the corgi silhouette.

For the “Twitter” logo, I found a black-and-white outlined picture of a bird, and used two copies of it to make the separate pieces – one became the full black background that the rest of the pieces would go on, and the other turned into the separate pieces that would be layered on top (main body/head, wing, beak).

I don’t have any in-progress shots of the “Twitter” sticker, but the layering was wing, body, beak. In retrospect I slightly missed the wing sticker’s placement.

For the final sticker, I edited the “Welcome to Nightvale” art depicted below

There were some printing mishaps – after sacrificing a few vinyl sheets, I decided to do the two black pieces (tower and waves) separately because I wasn’t quite able to get them on the same sheet – the alignment of the printing sheet was not quite what it said it was.
All the layers finalized
Backsplash layer with tower
Eye on top of backsplash layer
Center of eye added
Final – waves added

The toughest part about this assignment was getting the black pieces of the sticker to peel out and stick properly – I need to pluck out pluck out pieces from the tower sticker, and delicately pull the waves from the rest of their vinyl.
