this first one is a splash page i made for my studio. i may add more colour to it yet. i was working to make it diverse both in topic and medium.
this one and the one below it i actually did over the summer in spain. scarabs (also known as dung beetles) are common in my family's hometown. they fly all over the place like miniature apache choppers: very loud, very bold- very COOL :D i found a dead one and, careful not to touch it (since it, as its name implied, smelled of the dung it so loved) did some anatomical studies and even managed to pry its wing and abdominal shell open without breaking it.
the first piece i did for olson's painting for illustrators class. the assignment was a small warm up still life. we werent allowed to spend more than half an hour on it. fun stuff- i really enjoy his class, ill be posting more from that class soon
the first project for illustration 2: to make a mask that we design. mine is an alien meld between the japanese giant hornet and the australian bulldog ant. this took 1 week.
charicature assignment for illustration 2: the dalai lama
cover submission for the first new inprint issue: secrets. i thought this was a fun idea to go with the theme- the secret that bigfoot is actually a prank being played out by other mythical creatures/ urban legends.
illustration 2's assignment to illustrate a poem called "note" which is about a rat that finds its wayon stage during a performance of the nativity scene, and is subsequentially killed. i thought this poem was particularly sad, although many found it humorous.
this sparrow is one of many personal projects that i will be uploading in the near future. he is made of corrugated cardboard.
so i finally update! my apologies for the delay, and even still this isnt nearly all the work i plan to upload, but its a good start. i still have a bunch to scan and photograph.
