I've gotten a couple decent drawings out of this semester's figure drawing class, and one of the nice things is that the class is so relaxed in composition, that I can focus on portraiture. Here's a collection of drawings I've done in the past week (and one from last year that reminded me of a drawing I did today). The top one is the only mildly illustrative one. It's a little hard to tell, but it's supposed to be a little humorous. I'm sure you'll all see it.

Here's a project I recently finished that was a lot of fun to work on. It's a poster series I did for my advertising and graphic design class inspired by Apple's 'Think Different.' commercial. It's a very moving campaign that signified one of Apple's transitions. The first poster was simply for displaying the type. Printed out, it's very vivid and eye catching. The next three are a series I did with the original text (slightly edited for size). I really love the colors against the historical black and white photos. I chose Einstein, Picasso, and MLK Jr because I believe they were three of the most influential people that changed the way we see or do things. A lot of kerning and leading went into that text block to emphasize the most important lines and words, and overall, I'm really happy with it.
