A Look Back

We all started somewhere. My real spark for art came around freshman year of high school. It's been a few days since my last post, so I thought I'd a throw something up here to show what I did before foundation's year at CCAD. I'm pretty sure these were from junior to senior year. Let them inspire you, or (more likely) let them make you feel better about what you're currently doing.

Stealing the West

Here's a spot illustration I did for my styles and concepts class. The article was about the anniversary of Aaron Burr getting acquitted for trying to take over the western United States. Hope you all enjoy!

Is my head a beach ball?

Here's a new line drawing for my portrait painting class. It's a bit abstract (which is a nice way of saying she has one round head) but I think I like that about it. I'm going to start painting on it at 12:30 today (Thursday), so if I get any suggestions before then, I'll keep them in mind. It'll be an oil painting on a 14 x 18" canvas.

Down on Skid Row

I'm working on a revamped movie cover right now that's from the 80's and thought I'd put a little taste of it online. It's for my black and white illustration class, so it won't end up having any color (unless I decide to do a two color illustration). This was just a preliminary sketch I did for it of the three main characters. Anyone who didn't already know what movie it was can go ahead and take a guess.

It's About Time

So, after months and months of having this blog, I've finally got it up and running. Welcome everyone who's checking it out now. There should be regular posts from now on. I guess I should start it off right and show a work in progress piece.

This is from my Illustration Styles and Concepts class and we're supposed to do a famous person as an animal. If you can guess who it is, awesome, but I have to go back into the face and make it resemble her more. Also, I'm going to actually render the jewelry and hair similar to the face, so they have some depth rather than being flat. Anything else you guys see, let me know.
