robbieierubino's Profile Picture
robbieierubino

Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
My name is Robert John 'Robbie' Ierubino, Jr. I create art based on geometry and silhouettes; fandom and personal dedication; as well as dreams inspired by music and nature. I have been interested in the arts my whole life. At first, I created music and visual "lights" and started painting and creating other forms of digital art when I was 16.

Personally, I'd like to say that I have autism and I am fine with that. I created a documentary called, 'Stuck in the Middle' (ierubino.com/stuckinthemiddle)/, and invite you to watch. This 30-minute video is about my life with autism - my ups and downs - and why acceptance is the only thing I and others with autism want.

Journal History

I had an exciting interview with Jenna from Learn From Autisticslearnfromautistics.com/autism-…

PREVIEW:
Robbie Ierubino is an American artist with autism studying Graphic Design at Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent, England. He has developed his own style of art which he calls “shapism” and uses his art to communicate his unique world perspective and advocate for acceptance. This week he shared how autism influences his art and his passion for working to improve autism acceptance.
MLP - The Unexpected Future (Graphic) Poster
While creating this poster, I was inspired by one of the greatest visionaries of graphic design, Saul Bass, who created title sequences and colorful posters from the film industry. Never heard of him? I would recommend you to look him up in Google! He's amazing!

Some silhouettes are made from other creatives, so I would like to credit:
OH! There is a silhouette of New York City in the background in case you didn't know. "Where is it?" you may ask. So, how about I give you a tip. Flip the poster upside-down, and you might find a figure of the Statue of Liberty on the right side of the poster.

As for the "human" shadows, I may have created them based on the creative end credits from "The Incredibles," don't you think?

The poem that I added in the poster, by Kaitlyn M. Yawn reminded me about why friendship can be an essential thing for love. And perhaps, it may tell you of the official series and brony community as well! :)

There are two other versions of the poster that I would like for you to see which best suits you:
I love designing posters, and with that interest in mind, I feel like I wanted to prove my true talent of art to others. Although I am a student studying Graphic Design at Staffordshire University, I never wanted to give up my dream story. I am a low-budget contemporary graphic artist with autism who wishes to commission artists and illustrators based on my expression of my imagination. But when I get across a high amount of money, I wanted to bring support to the community and give charity donations for people with disabilities in the future. So, if you wanted to support my radio play and help me accomplish my goals, feel free to select a tier in my Patreon page (www.patreon.com/robbieierubino). I hope you understand what I'm trying to say because I'm not good with words, to be honest.

OH! And by the way, I was thinking of an illustrated version of my poster design because I thought about the idea of how magical, thrilling, and attractive the style would turn out to be. Feel free to ask me if you want to make an illustrated version of my poster design.

-------------------------

If you want to know what My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future is about, here is a fascinating synopsis of my radio play (which is now in development):

Three human beings, Danny Williams, Morgan and Molly Brunner, are trapped and banished to Equestria by one of Danny’s psychology clients. And by searching for help, they learned about the incident which has caused the separation of the Mane Six, who are the only ones who could help them escape. So, it is up to them to talk to the six ponies and help them reunite with each other. And after it is done, Danny planned to continue the therapy with his unexpected client who banished him but with new friends.

- CANCELED -


Hey, everyone. So, due to the lack of participating, the number of contestants, and leaves, the My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future poster contest has now been canceled. It is disappointing when I only see some artists took a small time to complete their poster illustration. I know making this piece of work would take a long time, and that's what I planned the contest for 2 months. And because of this reason to cancel this contest, this leaves me no choice but to commission an artist/illustrator to build a poster illustration, based on the works of Drew Struzan and Kyle Lambert. Also, I want to tell you that I'm having trouble saving money because I kept spending them on my needs and wants. And because I have autism and addictive to commissions, I would have money problems and my life wouldn't better without them. that's why I need your help to donate points in my dA profile and to select a tier for my upcoming project in Patreon (www.patreon.com/robbieierubino). And if you don't want to be a patron in Patreon or if you don't have points, feel free to donate some of your money in my PayPal.Me profile (paypal.me/RobbieIerubino). So please, please, please help me because the more the money I have, the better my life would be, and the happier the amount of support I'll get for my upcoming story and play.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today, I would like to tell you about the idea of making a cinematic poster for my radio play, My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future. I was thinking about making an artistic illustration in a style of Drew Struzan & Kyle Lambert. If you don't know who they are, the links of their works are below the description of this journal. And by starting the work of the poster, I have made a unique retro background of space and colors in Photoshop. But, there is one more thing that is missing...

MLP - TUF Poster Background by robbieierubino

There are no story characters featured in the poster! And I am just only a contemporary graphic artist with autism who does art differently than the traditional ways. Here is proof that I can only do graphic design works for entertainment:

MLP - The Unexpected Future (Mane 6 Teaser) Poster by robbieierubino  MLP - The Unexpected Future (Mirror) Poster by robbieierubino

That's why I need one of YOU, professional artists and illustrators, to help me complete my work. And by doing that, I decided a fun activity for everyone to volunteer and to participate.

I want to invite every artist and illustrator to help me complete my poster with an illustration in a particular...

ART CONTEST!


This may sound like a LONG collaborative project, but I believe that it is up to you to make sure that you are motivated and confident to draw. Every artist and illustrator must have that place to continue their work for this event. So, if you want to join the contest, here are the following steps of how to enter:
  1. Favorite this journal.
  2. Comment below, ”I would like to join and participate in the poster contest!”
  3. Wait until you get a note of a link to my sta.sh of files: a background poster and its character layout, plus references of the story characters you will be illustrating.

CONTEST VOLUNTEERING ARE NOW CLOSED!


I know that it might take a long time to complete one of your illustrations for the poster. And that is why I decided to plan the contest’s deadline to February 16, 2019, 12:00 PM GMT, so that you will have more time to draw your submission!

UPDATE 1: There has been a change of plan for the contest. I have decided to update the deadline to next week and end the volunteering audition. For now on, the competition will be participated by nine contestants:

PenRosa
FalafelJake
GlorysiaMelodyYT
PrincessRainbowDream
BlueSideArts
Mittz-The-Trash-Lord
Mah521
Erim-Kawamori
Tillie-TMB

:iconpenrosa::iconfalafeljake::iconglorysiamelodyyt::iconprincessrainbowdream::iconbluesidearts::iconmittz-the-trash-lord::iconmah521::iconerim-kawamori::icontillie-tmb:

Two of the contestants had shown me their processes of how far their illustration is from completion. Some of them have been working on their personal work and might have forgotten about the contest. So, from this day forward, they have to work and complete their illustration until Saturday, February 23, 2019, 12:00 PM GMT! And when they have completed their drawings, their submissions will be displayed on the submission journal below! Good luck drawling and submitting your work for my poster! ;) (Wink)

What’s essential for every contest are a set of rules. So, here are the rules for every artist and illustrator participating this contest:
  1. Do NOT upload your private images from my sta.sh to Derpibooru or any other website.
  2. Every Saturday will be a reminder for you to participate in creating your contest submission.
  3. No NSFW artwork. This is an SFW contest!
  4. If you want to create your own layout for character placements and ignore the design which I created, do it. ;)
  5. This contest is NOT for money gambling.

I will judge to see which artist and illustrator have made the most artistic and stylish way to fit with my poster. And once I have chosen the winner, he or she will be noted privately to have a Skype conversation with me and a printed submission of his or hers with typography, typefaces, and graphic design included, which I'm a master of creating. The winner will be revealed when the printed poster is delivered to him or her. And remember, if you are told that you had won the contest and will have your charming illustration included in my poster printed, it is important that you must remind me when it came to you!

If you want to recommend an artist or an illustrator join the contest, tag a friend or any artist from your interest in the comments below.  Also, if you are curious about the radio play I wish to create, feel free to drop by in my Patreon page (www.patreon.com/robbieierubino)! And finally, if you have any questions about the contest and the radio play, please comment on this journal below, and I will answer your questions in a short period of time.

Thank you for reading my journal! And now, here are some extra stuff that can help you with your submission and others:

NEW!


Please read this journal because I need help.
My Concerns of Copyright / HELP!Last time, I have announced that I was joining with OMG to help me produce a radio play called, My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future. But now, they decided to decline because of the copyright features my story has. I know it sounds uncomfortable to do a copyrighted play because it's the law. And now, I don't know what to do in my future. I wanted to direct my story so badly, but I'm all alone! That's why I built a page in Patreon, and submitted an ad in Equestria Daily for more support.
I know that Hasbro owns MLP, and I have no idea if I could ask them for permission to fair use. I do not have a cast and crew yet, but that is why I need your help. I hadn't made a poll in DeviantArt for years. But I think I am going to play the clas

MLP - The Unexpected Future Poster Contest
EDIT 1: I was told that I wasn't direct throughout the whole community. So, I wanted to apologize for being out of control and crazy to some artists and illustrators because of my autism. I just wanted to know if you're going to participate in the contest or not. And for that, I have made a far decision to remove my list of tagged artists and illustrators I wanted to invite for this contest and will note some of them to see if they can join. Thank you, Couch-Crusader, for the concern that I have done.

EDIT 2: I had a feeling about what I can do to create posters. So, I decided to show you what I can only do for creating entertainment works as a contemporary graphic artist with autism. Plus, I hope it will be on Equestria Daily someday.

EDIT 3: I have added a new column below the YouTube links, called "NEW!" as in new stuff to feature in this journal.

EDIT 4: Contest volunteering has now come to a close! The deadline has been updated so that contestants will have extra more time to complete their submission.

Good luck to PenRosa, FalafelJake, GlorysiaMelodyYT, PrincessRainbowDream, BlueSideArts, Mittz-The-Trash-Lord, Mah521, Erim-Kawamori, & Tillie-TMB for their participation and skill to create one single illustration for the poster! ;)

ALIEN
After the commission series, SCARS, I had a thought about doing more of that. So I commissioned Earthsong9405 once again to draw three headshot sketches of the three human beings from my upcoming radio play, My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future (link to teaser video). I have created NEW minimalistic backgrounds for her illustrations, too! After all, it was fun that I get to watch her do my commissions in a live stream (again)!


Thank you, :iconearthsong9405:, for doing another commission series, ALIEN, in an incredible style of yours. Plus for my future commission plans, I have decided to be your $5 patron in your Patreon account for the next one. I can't wait to get started a new headshot sketch in the future!

Comission Sketch for robbieierubino by SpiritusTenebre  COMISSION : Where are we? by SpiritusTenebre 
  • Names of characters in series (top to bottom)
    • Danny Williams
    • Morgan Brunner (Danny's old friend)
    • Molly Brunner (Morgan's little sister)
  • The designs are based on the human characters from the beginning age of MLP (G1).
    • Since I saw a male character, Danny, from the first show, I thought about redesigning him to represent the fandom and community the "Friendship is Magic" has created throughout my entire story.
    • WEIRD FACT: I might have accidentally used Morgan as the name, instead of Megan, which is the original. Whoops! :D

If you want to know what My Little Pony: The Unexpected Future is about, here is a fascinating synopsis of my radio play (which is now in development):

Three human beings, Danny Williams, Morgan and Molly Brunner, are trapped and banished to Equestria by one of Danny’s psychology clients. And by searching for help, they learned about the incident which has caused the separation of the Mane Six, who are the only ones who could help them escape. So, it is up to them to talk to the six ponies and help them reunite with each other.

Thank you, GlorysiaMelodyYT, but unfortunately, it is not the time to make an official website for now on. I do appreciate your idea, but it is not the time to do it yet. You see, I wanted to work on a BIG project for the community itself, and that project is to create a radio play. If you have never heard of it, there is a link below the text. So, maybe sooner or later, the time will come. I'm sorry.
