Here comes the sun…

This is what happens when you spend too much time at Starbucks… You get songs stuck in your head.

The original idea started out as a random doodle while chatting with my friends over the  weekend. A little time in Illustrator to clean it up, and re-tool some of the letters, and some fun with Photoshop, and here it is; the final poster.

Another semester over.

I’ve been silent here for a few months. Things got pretty busy and the commute into the city everyday was exhausting. But now the semester is over, and I’ve got a few months to work (hopefully. Someone hire me!), and do some of my own personal projects that got put aside this past year. Yay!

I hand-made a screwpost portfolio for my end of the year review, and for never building a book before, I have to admit I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I even hand-painted the logo on the cover.

new week, new project.

Working on masks this week, 3D and in Photoshop…

I’ve decided to make a mask of mirrors, after a conversation I had with a friend. Here’s a few photos of the progress so far. I still need to paint the left side (waiting for the grout to dry) and attach something to make the mask wearable, since we have to photograph ourselves in the mask as part of the project.

 

what I’ve been up to lately…

New school, new projects, and no sleep.

here’s some stuff I’ve been working on.

Illustrating the alphabet. Some of the letters got out of order, I’m not sure how to fix that, but you’ll get the idea.

WIP Pencil, 18x24in. Final project for Drawing 2.

Been busy all weekend trying to catch up on the last few projects for class. One week left until graduation. And every time I think of it I get all teary… I’m gonna miss that place, and the people.

It’s having a little bit of an identity crisis…

another one down… almost. I think I’m going to crop the pieces down and mount them to some mat-board. It bothers me that the small chair ended up on its side… poor planning on my part. It’s alright though, because it would have to be folded anyhow to fit in the envelope so a little cropping shouldn’t be  an issue.

one more to go.

more updates…

Here’s what I’ve been working on so far. Two more projects to finish… and I’m running out of time!

Many, many thanks to everyone who’s been helping, supporting, inspiring, and donating materials for all these projects. You know who you are, and I couldn’t have gotten this far without all of you! Love you all!

Now its time for me to get back to work.

random updates…

Just a few things I’m currently working on…self prtrait, ear.

(Yet another) Self portrait. This is in just the beginning stages. Yes, its a wonky cell phone picture again… My camera is busy with another project at the moment. (See below.) I thought I was going to try this in pastels, but somehow I just kept continuing on in pencil… We’ll see what happens, maybe I’ll try both.

This is going to be a series of water drop/splash photos… the set up was pretty tricky for this one. I ended up with a baking pan since none of my bowls were wide or deep enough for the lenses I have and I couldn’t get quite the right distance away. Seems the combo of this bread pan and my 55-200mm lens and a couple of clamp lights are doing the trick… but its tough to get that lens to move fast enough to catch the action.

sketches…

I need more sketches, and drawings in my portfolio, and my brain is all but fried lately.  So I’m leaving it up to all you people out there in the interwebz… tweet me, or post down below an idea you want to see, and I’ll post whatever I come up with here.

some recent drawings…
