Your stomach likes it!!

Sitting pose. Maybe forty minutes or so. It came out rather nice if you look at it close up, but from farther back it looses a lot of its subtle shifts. I'm gonna call it done cuz there is no way I'm gonna do her pants, they're acid wash (not only ugly but just a bitch to look good with pen).


I know I said I was going to work on the charicature more, but I decided to work on the "real" one  instead. Tee gave me some good pointers and they helped a lot. Thanks girl!

I decided to try and do the sketch a day thing. Im starting with the alphabet as a theme. A is for Abbot and Costello. Super quick line drawing. I like it quite a bit though. 

This is the line drawing that I'm going to be working on all night. It's an add for mountian dew. Your Stomach Likes It!!

Jeff Carlisle came to talk to our class. It was really uplifting and enjoyable. He talked about how he got his start and where he is now. I respect him so much for doing exactly what he want to do, which is fantasy and sci-fi art. He draws Star Wars for a living. It was great to hear that even though it seems he has more failure than success, he is a success and wouldn't change his past experiences for notin'. Also, he does a great kermit impression. I got to give it up to CCAD for all the great lectures we've been having lately. The Dinotopia guy (Gurrney?) James Sullivan, who is the greatest matte painter for movies for all of time, and now Jeff. I feel like I've really been getting a sensational experience as of late, and that is awesome.

And what she looks like through the Allison filter. Simone was a really good sport about this. I applaud her good nature. Not finished but I thought it deserved a post. 

What she really looks like . . . 

'Tard dump.


The Gooch has been over taken by the evil and vile Malcolm. Tune in next week to see what happens!

The Gooch in color. Watercolor and color pencil on bristol. There's ink in there too. David Catraow can eat his heart out!

Live models, who would of guessed? I spiced it up a little. Maybe an hour? Watercolor and ink on bristol. 

Malcolm color

Kid in my class wrote a story about a fisherman catching the big-un. Pencil on bristol.

A story about a failing juggler and his abusive wife-y. Spot illustration for newspaper. Watercolor and ink

This is a "movie poster" idea as Tardini-o would say. Spend an hour on it?

this is a piece I did for my Uncle, as the little caption suggests. He built this car from the ground up, 1965 Shelby Cobra.

spamalot playbill


spam spam spam spam. I was sad that I couldn't include the very expensive forest. Oh well. My SC teacher says this was probably the best project I've done for class. I agree.
