0.3.0 sketches

Endless, endless testing.   0.3.0 was partly a new emoji update, but also just trying to tie up more loose ends for the future. I wanted to be super-satisfied with various core elements of the aesthetic and design philosophy so I could move on with bigger changes and more new emoji without feeling like I […]

Mutant Standard 0.2.4 Sketches

Here are all the sketches from 0.2.4, and a very long commentary.¬†I am now making notes as I’m making the emoji, so giving you commentary is more efficient more detailed, and less scary to post at the end of a version because I have all the content already available.

Because Mutant Standard is a project where I’m constantly making little pictures, a production pipeline is needed to make this run more smoothly. It helps […]

My Tools

So, this project broke $100/mo a few weeks ago in pledges, which means we broke my first goal and I will start uploading my sketches and process pics with each new release. But before I do that, I figured it would be a good idea to try to contextualise these sketches and process pics by […]
