Figurative Drawing Dump

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 to the Crazy Ones..

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.

(Side note, the condensed text of 'Here's to the Crazy Ones' can be found in the Text Edit icon in OS X, take a look!)
