New Geometric Instagram Edits

Working on some new instagram edits from photos of taken in Tahoe and San Francisco :)

Lake Instagram Edit Geometry - by 9000things      Mountain Lake Instagram Edit Geometry - by 9000things

Skyline Instagram Edit Geometry - 9000things      Purple Mountain Instagram Edit Geometry - by 9000things

Some people have asked how I make these, or which apps I use. First I take a photo and filter it through instagram a few times. After that I transfer the image to my computer and do the rest of the work in Illustrator and Photoshop. The finished images are a composite of altered photos and geometric vector drawings.

I’ll be putting these on my Society6 page!

Back To Work

After the craziness of my first serious holiday season as a business owner (that shi- is FOR REAL), I’ve really been enjoying taking a break. Enjoying it a little too much, really. Time to stop slacking and get back to life things.

Winter Vacation is OVER - instagram photo collage by 9000things

Spent at least two hours making this image about procrastinating as an act of procrastination.

Boston Postcards Rough Draft

I’m working on a collection of Boston postcards from photographs that I’ve taken from around town. The inspiration comes from the instagram free-for-alls that I did a few months ago. (see those here and here and the precursor instagram hacks here and here)

Here are a few of them, still in progress:

Copley Square Boston Postcard - 9000things Swan Boats in the Boston Public Garden Postcard - 9000things Charles River and Boston City Skyline Postcard - 9000things

Let me know what you think :)

Instagram Hacks: #FourQuestions_freeforall

@FourQuestions started a freeforall contest on Instagram with actual prizes and everything! Today is the last day, but check out the photos and the rules on their website. I’m totally obsessed with instagram hacks right now, so I’ve entered the following six edits based on others’ photos:

Collabs are with @tylerforesthauser @stevenromo @stacyreneee @krischanstclair

As an aside, I’m thinking of taking the concepts I’ve been working on here to make postcards to sell, so let me know what you think is working, and which ideas I should ditch. Thanks!

Instagram Hacks: #TylerForestHauser_freeforall

Instagram has spawned a super fun project medium called the #freeforall.

Instagrammers post a handful of their unused photos on the internets for downloading and you edit them and post them to IG with the appropriate hashtag. @tylerforesthauser started one of these a little while ago and his gorgeous photos make it way too easy to make pretty things. Here’s his website with downloads and instructions.

And here are my edits. (waaaaay too much fun…)

More on instagram.

More Instagram Hacks

Love the juxtaposition of the oldish looking filtered photos with the crispness of vector drawings. These are definitely becoming an obsession :)

I’m thinking about printing out some travel landscapes and altering them similar to this, but with patterned washi tape. What do you think? Stay tuned…

Instagram Photos + Ai

So happy with the geometry obsession on the internet- obviously I’m going to take advantage!

These are the first in a series of instagram photos from various places I’ve traveled, which have been filtered and edited in illustrator. Enjoy :)

Check out my instagram feed to see more filtered and altered photos.

 

UPDATE: Some of these guys are available on my Society6 page as prints, pillows, iPhone cases and totes. You should totes go check it out. (I did that.)
