Figya Paintin'

Paintings. Of figures! Oh my!

Oh, and a landscape

The updates are coming! The updates are coming!

Considering I haven't posted since May, and my junior year is now half over, I figure its kind of silly to be doing this now. But better late than never I suppose. So here comes the flood of stuff done from this past semester.

Painting of the oil variety

I've still got to photograph the rest of my paintings (that I like), considering they're all at least twice the size of the scanner in here. But I'll give you a preview with the most successful of my downtown paintings.

Illustrations and such

So here's the rest of my illustration projects starting with the Day in the Life (I know, I'm way behind)
medium: watercolor, ink

'Wish You were Here' Postcards from Antarctica
medium: acryllic

The Creature Project
medium: Gouache
(I'll leave it up to you to determine which 3 animals I combined ;] )

The Grimm Fairy Tales Illustration from the Story Iron Hans
(done on scratchboard [top] and then digitally colored [bottom])

A Master-Remake of a Caspar David Friedrich painting
done in oil rub and acryllic

more to come soon...

Long time no post...

So I'm aware that I'm a slacker in regard to this thing (especially when it comes to actually photographing/scanning my work), but I finally managed to get most of the rest of the stuff from sophomore year scanned. So prepare for a glut of updates over the next few weeks.

Graphic Design

New Post! So, as is the case with everyone in Illustration right now, I've been working nonstop and haven't had much time to post new work. But I thought I'd start things off by posting my graphic design work. It's definitely been a different way of thinking for me, but I like how some of the things have turned out.-Illustrated Poster assignment for Pavement
