Joseph Randy S Mayuga

I'm Joseph Mayuga, a graphic artist/designer and network engineer based near Los Angeles. Although I've worked in a technical field, my passion lies in the creative arts of graphic design, page layouts, document creation, technical guides, logo creation, illustrations, photo manipulation, photo-realistic 3D scene/object rendering, photography, and even costume creation. My graphic design resume. My generic resume.

My other interests span many areas including PC gaming/building, the automotive world and all the latest vehicle technologies (in-car screens/UX, powertrains, styling) music/sound systems, and I am a fan of the L.A. Lakers.

Music Player UI/UX Mock-up using Adobe XD (Interactive)

Not satisfied with the Apple Carplay system in my car, I made this mock-up in Adobe XD from scratch based on Sony's Walkman app used in their Xperia line of phones and tablets. This would have been perfect for automotive applications and I feel it is more elegant, beautiful and user-friendly than the current Apple Carplay and Android Auto offerings which do not appear to be updated very often.

I particularly wanted large, swipable artwork and direct links for artist and album. Clicking on the album artwork displays the currently playing tracks and the background samples its colors from the current album artwork.

This was from Anime Expo 2017 where a friendly 2B and I weigh our options on the Persona 5 menu.

3D model I created using 3ds Max from a few grainy jpegs of a VW Polo rally car with wide fender flares. I dreamed of a consumer version that retained all the bodywork.
VW Polo Rally car rendered with HDRI and I forget which renderer. This was done without a proper skylight, just a low res jpg.
The completed bodyshell. I believe I was experimenting with different shellac settings for paint.
I rendered my brother's car using very low resolution perspective shots as reference. I wish I'd actually done the interior.
A watercolor drawing I did of the Hulk done on plain paper.
The opening panel to my Hulk vs. Juggernaut comic, done in watercolors.
Freehand drawing of the VF-1S Veritech from Robotech/Macross. I used a reference drawing. Look how pencil smears.
Freehand drawing of the SDF-1 from Robotech/Macross. I used a reference drawing of the SDF-1.

Look how old this mock-up VHS(!) artwork is of my unfinished movie, Agent.
