Hey everyone! I just scanned and cleaned up a bunch of 35 mm silver gelatin prints from first semester's Basic Photo with Lesly Deschler Canossi, who is an amazing professor, by the way. Really enjoyed the class. The set above is a mix of work from a couple of different projects, one of them being my final for the class. Props to Amanda for modeling on that one

This here is a photo of the backdrop I made for my final. I made sure during the planning stages that I would be able to use it both vertically and sideways as a backdrop. The whole ink drawing was about 6 feet by 11 feet, on cut Lennox. Big thanks to Chris for all the help! To the right is my favorite picture out of the set I did of Madison. Love that girl.

The God In The River REVISED

Okay, so I sent the final out to two professors for critique, and used both of their suggestions and came up with this, my final FINAL edit.

So to recap: 11x14", lineart was brush+ink+crow quill, colored digitally.

The God In The River

Awwwww hells YES.
So I've been working on this piece for like, an entire week, just to polish it up for scholarships and for Society of Illustrators. Here's the original ink and graphite, versus the final colored piece. This looks nothing like what I did in class.
This illustration was a non-literal interpretation of a remix of "My Sweet Shadow" by the band In Flames. I listened to the song, and wrote down what I heard instead of the actual lyrics, and then used the images I came up with as a spring board for that. The actual process was more complicated, but that's it in a nutshell.

Don't Play With Your Food

So I'm back at MICA! And excited for new classes, scholarship applications, resume-boosting, and hopefully staying on top of things. For example, here's some work from an assignment I got on Tuesday in Hand Letters. Now I just have to make 8 more compositions and I'm all aces.
