This tutorial was great example of using the camera and it’s depth of field feature. After completing the tutorial I swapped out the crosses for my logo. I then exported the image as an animated gif in Adobe Media Encoder, here’s the final animation.
So our Mayor of Sketch N’ Chill decided to get up and leave New York to live in Arizona… FOREVER Maybe. I had known Eric for a very long time as well, we went to the same school – POBJFK High School on Long Island, New York. He was always the life of the event I held every 2 weeks at a bar called The Republic in Farmingdale. Members as well as good friends supplied drawings and videos to produce a memorable piece of content for his Facebook page. I collected all these various forms of media and created this video to give Eric an energy boost to grant him the confidence he needs to start fresh.
So, my girlfriend has a sister that can kick Sponge Bob’s butt in Karate… and to be honest, most people’s butts if they were looking to be kicked. For her birthday, her Mom thought it would be nice to get her a Karate belt holder, she asked me if there was anything cool I could come up with, I looked at her and said, “You’ve come to the right place” as if I was a destination. I added LED lights to the back of a Karate Belt unit and asked Surface Grooves to Laser Engrave her name in Japanese at the top. I simply sent over an Adobe Illustrator file over to Surface Grooves and gave them the belt holder and it was done in under 15 min.
This was a fun project, I would love to do more of these!

Munoz Stockin’ Events (MSE) is a branch of Munoz Stock, a company founded by my brother’s band, The Muckrakers and me, Evan Munoz. Munoz Stockin’ Events (MSE) produces local Long Island Music / Art / Video Game parties and gatherings. We put together these events to keep current with the Long Island community year round leading up to our larger event Munoz-Stock, a Music + Art + Video Game Festival currently being held at Station Sports in Huntington Long Island.
In light of the global situation in 2020 MSE like many, turned to a more virtual approach to hold events. The first online concert series we came up with is called Show On The Go! Our first episode aired live May, 23rd 2020 on Munoz-Stock’s Facebook page, we had 6 live performers from bands on the East Coast. Show On The Go! also featured a live Digital Artist that painted during the event in Adobe Photoshop using a drawing tablet. The Munoz-Stock team also created 2 skits, one was a Mortal Kombat 11 battle between Shanon Munoz and Joey Bosco, the other was mock Zoom Workout skit including Joey Bosco + The Muckrakers + Evan Munoz. To help support local Long Island Bars that have supported Munoz-Stock over the years, we directed viewers to One Eye Jacks in Bethpage multiple ways during the event to promote their new takeout menu. The show was a great success with over 2.5k viewers over the 3 hour event. The MSE team will be continuing to produce Show On The Go! on a monthly basis to keep connected with the local Long Island Music and Art Scene during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
I’m excited to see this platform grow because it is a great way of showcasing the local talent there is out here on Long Island. This is a perfect project to combine multiple skill sets for a Marketing Graphic Designer like myself, Evan Munoz. To promote growth on this channel and create a highly polished show I had to exercise use of StreamYard, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Adobe Rush and Digital Marketing best practices. I am looking forward to producing more Show On The Go! Episodes with The Muckrakers/Munoz-Stock Team and Actor Joey Bosco from Los Angeles.
So as I had a little time to myself this March, I decided to take one of my drawings and turn it into an animation. But! I took it a step further. Due to my lack of Adobe After Effects on my computer, I tried to use an OLD version of Adobe Flash CS5 to create this animation… God I need a copy of After Effects 😦
I sketched out this guy bored one day on this private beach on Long Island:
Then I digitally painted this on my Wacom Intuos Pro tablet in Autodesk’s SketchBook Express:
Last I created some clouds in Affinity Designer and animated this guy in Adobe Flash, I think I messed up in rendering somewhere – might need to look that up, but it came out okay for my testing:
As creative professionals, everything we do has to be creative in someway! At least that is how I feel, so why not dress up your resume? After all as designers, isn’t our job to organize data in a more visually pleasing manor? With that being said I found an article on inspirationfeed.com that inspired me to Re-design my resume to make it look like a designer created it. What do you guys think about this topic? Should designers keep a standard resume or a more graphic oriented resume?
Andddddd as promised here is my take on this topic. Please let me know what you think! Would you hire me if you saw this?

The second page to my website, I am building a Scrolling Parallax website. So the whole website will be one page with a couple elements on the page moving at a slower rate as you scroll creating an illusion of depth. I can’t wait to have the site up and running still have a while to go!!!
