Having been the new kid on the block, I know what it feels like to begin making your way in the world of professional artistry. So, I wanted to take a moment here to give a shout out to a good friend of mine, and up-and-coming artist Gabriel Leake.
Gabriel and I collaborated on a project for a client of mine, Living Way Church. I had already designed Living Way’s corporate identity, and collaborated with Cotten:Tech to do a website for them as well. Gabriel and I worked together to develop a logo for Living Way’s new youth ministry, which would be called 2Twenty2, based on a scripture from II Timothy 2:22.
We were successful, as Living Way is using the logo, and has gotten a great response from it. Gabriel has a fascinating digital design style that I call Neue Graffiti. If the art of graffiti were to be reinvented, Gabriel’s work would be at the forefront of the movement. It’s painterly, raw, textured and original.
He’s got a new blog site up showcasing some of his work in traditional mediums: graphite pencil portraits, pen and ink drawings, oil painting, and so forth. Check it out! Gabriel Leake Portfolio
