Ghosts in the Groove time lapse process video. Illustrating with Photoshop and a Wacom Cintiq.

Another process video for you guys. This is for a piece I call ‘Ghosts in the Groove.’ This was created using my 12″ Wacom Cintiq (older model) tablet. With this illustration I was trying to mimic the overprinting process when doing silkscreen. To do this I chose 2 colours and used the multiply effect in Photoshop. When taking this to press always take Photoshop’s multiply effect a grain of salt. 9 times out of 10 it will not be exactly what you see on screen. It’s a constant trial and error process until you get the results you’re looking for.

In future videos I will show some of the other techniques I have used to mimic the silkscreen process. Until then stay tuned and thanks for checking out my speed drawing process video.

5 Not so Creative Questions with Designer and Illustrator Logan Schmitt


For those who don’t know you. Who the hell are you?

I’m just a poor boy from West Virginia who moved to the big ol’ city of Columbus, Ohio with a suitcase full of dreams, doodles, and squeegees.

What do you do?

I’m an illustrator and screen printer. I make posters for bands, design t-shirts, and sling my work at craft shows. I draw lots of pictures of animals, bones, creeps, and flowers…usually with the Dark Crystal playing in the background.

What’s a tip you’d give to people? Something you’ve picked up along the way.

No one is going to do it for you. If you want to do something go DO it. It’s easy to think that things will come to you or someone will tell you you’re ready, especially if you’re going to art school or something like that. Just put in the work and go get it!

What are you into. Or something that recently inspired you?

Well, Halloween just happened so all that fantastic storytelling and imagery is just swirling around in my head. Few things will instantly inspire me as much as a creepy old folk tale or ghost story.

Pancakes or waffles?

I’m going to have to go with waffles. Not restaurant-style or Belgian-style though (although I’m very Belgian, myself). Just give me a box of store-bought Eggos, an unhealthy amount of butter, and a jug o’ syrup.
