Me, as reflected in a portrait of Frida Kahlo I did for a student competition. I won 1st place, much to my surprise! Whoo!

Synergism in Illustration class

Yeeeeaaaah. This was the illustration I did for synergism class. The only one.... Slurpee oasis. Yummm :D

Blogger seems to have faded my colors some.

Catching up on illustration class uploads

movie poster for The Shawshank Redemption. Title would go on that wall in the back.

Book cover for The Giver. Need to fix a couple things, but this convinced Thiel that I might be able to handle pastels, as well as digital.
Thank god, because this much digital is kiiiillling meeeee!

Fashion Ill. Lumber Jack fashions, of course. I need to go back in and finish outlining. maybe give her a chin... lol...

RDJ as Sherlock Holmes, with crack pipe.
I'm not satisfied with it, but I don't expect to spend much more time on it.

Yes. All the wood grain is different.

Illustration class, for an article on the massive increase of self diagnosis, via Google, WebMD, and other internets.

Drop Bears

tight sketch for Synergism in Illustration class project. Assignment was 'Fearsome critters'(look it up on wiki, lol). I chose to illustrate the Australian legend of Drop Bears, which are pretty much koalas with giant fangs, and claws, that wait in trees till hikers walk under them, then drop on the hikers, and rip out their throats. You can tell a drop bear is in a tree over you by laying on the ground, and spitting upwards. They'll spit back. ;)

I have changes I'll be making.

stuff from last year

Media class

I'll have more as soon as I can scan them. again.

Guache for Brandes' Adv. Media class
with this I discovered just how easy it is to work FOREVER on a guache piece. (this was my first, ever)


I know, I know...
I'd apologize for not updating in a year, but it's been a frustrating year, to say the least. Ah well.
my super sweet acrylic painting. 11"x36"
Fully rendered graphite drawing underneath, fixed, then painted over in true Don Brandes style. Yes, folks, that means I drew the patterns on walls, carpet, furniture, and tea accessories by hand, for better, or worse. This piece got into the Cosmix show at the Bradenton Museum of South Florida (or something like that), and is currently making it's rounds with the rest of the show to various galleries around the state of FL.
Chinese white Technique Pratt showed us. Pretty neat.
Scottish Landscape. Sheep. The works.
three hour ill (on an article about three men being condemned to stoning in the middle East. One man escaped.)

three hour ill (on an article about 'the Angel of Death,' a doctor who worked for the SS during WWII on increasing the chances of pregnancies producing twins, in an effort to produce an Arian army faster. After the fall of Germany, he escaped to Brazil, but seemed to have continued his research. Long story short there is a town in Brazil where, to this day, 8 out of 10 [my numbers might be off] pregnancies are twins.)
