Marcovaldo


For my final project this semester, we designed characters and environments based on a short story from the Marcovaldo collection in the style of an assigned artist. My project is based on "The City Lost in the Snow" inspired by the style of Harry Clarke. These are my final pieces, I really enjoyed this project and absolutely can't believe I only have one semester left of school!! Ahh!

Some head studies of characters from the artist Harry Clarke for a class project I'm currently working on. I love his style so these studies were a lot of fun!

Inktober 2


Better late than never, this last Inktober spread is one of my favorites of the month!
I was Tina Belcher for Halloween this year, so naturally day 31 had to be a drawing of her.

Crew of You


I've been meaning to revisit my Crew of You assignment from last semester for a while, and today I finally took some time for it! Color is still in the works, but I'm also digging this line art version.

This Side of Paradise


A friend of mine recently recommended that I read This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The characters were so fantastic I decided to work on designs for some of them, so here are some sketches of Amory Blaine and two of his lady loves, Rosalind and Eleanor! More on this to come!

Robin Hood

This semester I was in an advanced modeling class, and for our final project we were able to model anything that we wanted! I decided to model the Robin Hood character I designed in my visual development class last semester.

Original character design

The original Robin Hood assignment was to design a character for a 3D film, so I thought it would be a fun challenge to actually make the character in 3D. It was so cool to see my own character actually realized in 3D!

Finally, the most exciting part of this whole project is that I was able to get my model 3D printed! This was such an exciting process and I'm glad I had the opportunity to model my own character, and I absolutely love the final print!

The Call of the Void

My illustration for Barron Storey's zine project, my class's theme was The Call of the Void.

The lyrics in the piece are from this wonderful song, Car Crash by Wakey!Wakey!

Figure Painting



These are the first couple paintings from the figure painting class I am currently taking. We have been working in oil with a very limited palette, I'm really loving it!

Generations


My final piece for Barron Storey's "Generations" project, mine is on the evolution of bathing suits! We created six individual "bits" with no vision of the end result, then cut and pasted them all into one piece to tell the story of our subject. It was so fun to use such a different creative process!

Holden

I find that my list of books to read is always growing simply because I love re-reading old favorites too much. I'm currently revisiting The Catcher in the Rye, my absolute favorite.

"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy."

Breaking Bad




Lately I've been reading James Gurney's Color and Light and watching a lot of Breaking Bad (I'm obsessed). As a result I've been seriously nerding out over the lighting in the show, and have been doing a lot of lighting studies! These are a few of my favorites, they've been super informative and fun!
