Senior and AP Studio Art student Emma Sheets designed a new logo for The Falconer using the Adobe Draw app on her iPad. Here is a look into the background of the artist behind the new logo.

How did you get into art?

  • “I’ve always been into art my whole life, but I didn’t really start getting serious about it [and] doing competitions and really stretching my skills until high school.”

When did you realize that art was something you are passionate about?

  • “[I realized in] middle school just because before that I liked to do art and that’s something that I would do for fun, but then people would say ‘oh, you’re so good at art, you should be an artist.’ I was like ‘oh, that sounds cool.’ Maybe I’ll try and actually get better at art.”

What is your favorite form of art to do?

  • “I like drawing and painting, that kind of stuff, [mostly] 2D art.”

Are you planning on majoring or minoring in art?

  • “I was thinking about minoring in art in college, but now I’ve kind of decided against it just because I don’t want college to be too overwhelming with adding a bunch of extra classes and also I just want to make sure that I can keep it as a passion, but I don’t have to force myself to rush my art or something.”

Do you see yourself continuing to do art in the future?

  • “I hope so. That’s why I’m kind of worried that if I don’t end up taking art classes that I won’t make as much time, but hopefully in the future I’ll make sure I make time to still continue art.”

Was it difficult to create the logo?

  • “After Peyton gave the examples of [what] they were going for, [the] concept of it came kind of easily, but it took a long time to actually make sure all the letters flowed together and make sure that everyone agreed on what font style they liked best and what colors looked best and the style of the falcon, so it was a pretty long process. [It took me] almost two months [and] I worked pretty extensively on it up until the Chicago trip.”

How did you create the logo?

  • “The first draft I made of it was actually on Notability because I didn’t know how to work any kind of design apps, especially [on] the computer. I had no idea what I was doing. But then I transferred it to Adobe Draw, an app on my iPad, and I drew it on there, which is a lot better for design kind of things and I was just learning my way through it, figuring out how to use the app, and I’m still figuring out how to sync Adobe Draw on my iPad to Adobe Illustrator on the computers to make it like as professional as possible.”
