Something old, something new.

two things to put up today, once ive been meaning to put up since the summer.
this first one is a drawing i did while listening to the oh so wonderful Deftones (go figure). It's drawn from the song Change In The house of Flies and was done in pen, highlighter, and colored pencil.
the original drawing measures about 11x14 inches.

this second one was the first project for my typography class. (word and image) we had to create a font based off of our own hand writting, then make it consistent by tweaking ligatures, kerning, arms, x-heights, ect. When done with that we used a descriptive word to blow up and fill in with an illustration of the word. The word is about 7 inches high and 38 inches long. Entirely done by hand with prismacolor fine liners over the course of a week.

peace out ya'll.

i have ridden the moon worm.

epic work dump.

i realize its been far to long since i actually did any updates.
i have quite a bit to put up as of now.
it's been quite a busy semester so far, even within the first few weeks. Lots of work, lots of thinking.
first one is for my illustration 3 class. the first project we had was to do concept work for characters from the first few chapters of Geek Love, a novel about a family of side show freaks. After doing concepts for the individual characters we then set out to design a new cover for the book. i deviated away from doing character montages and scenes because i really cant stand it when book covers or DVD sleeves just try and cram an entire movie into a little drawing or photo.

this is one of my concept pages for Leonna, a lizard like little girl who died as an infant.

then my finished book cover. One of the things that was talked about early in the book was the geek pit, where Crystal Lil would entertain crowds biting the heads off of chickens. good clean fun.

next a few things drawn from life.

peace out!
