This is still sort of work in progress, but hey. I could always use feedback and I have a month long break coming up to make it look better/get better at making things look cohesive in Photosop. It's supposed to be an accident waiting to happen - I chose 4Loko and the internet, aka the mother of all bad combinations.

I know, ok. My updates don't happen, ever. Here's a work in progress I'm trying to knock out by ICON. It's a poster/portrait of The Tallest Man on Earth, who you should really listen to if you haven't yet.
Feedback appreciated, please and thanks! I'll keep posting shots of this as it comes along.

Here's the sketch/underdrawing for my Drawing and Painting: A Dialogue final. I'm going to start painting it tonight. I finally took advantage of the do-literally-whatever-you-want aspect of that class, and stopped worrying about if my work had enough "content" and "meaning" (which it doesn't, really, which is why I struggled all semester). Oddly enough when my professor gave me a critique he pointed out all kinds of possible subtexts, so maybe there's hope for me after all. Ultimately I just had a lot of fun drawing from my imagination, after not doing so for a while. There are probably a lot of proportion issues, but whatevs.
Oh. And the basis for this drawing was Facebook. More progress pictures coming soon.

So here's a screen cap of my latest assignment for Illustration 2! It's a magazine spread for the Radiolab episode about space. I'm going to color Carl Sagan's halo with metallic pencil when I print this bad boy out. I'll post a more finished jpeg file (hopefully with some sharper edges, ha) later.
Also here's the original drawing for kicks. I changed some stuff but graphite powder is my new bff.

Long time no update. So the lovely and talented Paige Vickers is making a zine about Texas and I was asked to contribute. Turns out Texas has a lot of really sweet cowboy folklore, so color me inspired. I'm thinking I'm going to do at least three sexy cowgirl ladies (Annie Oakley, Slue-foot Sue, some saloon girls) and some cows. Maybe. Here's the first go; it's definitely an under-sketch and will be more detailed later on. I mainly wanted some input on the background.
Should I go with this one, which is partial and has some grass and some rocks and a little shrub tree (just in case you can't read my scribbles) or...
the simple rope border (yes, that's supposed to be rope), or come up with something else all together? Other ideas involved really long grass making curvy patterns. Or cacti. My attempts weren't so great but I'll post them if I make any headway. What do ya'll think? (any crit not pertaining to the background is welcome too)
