Amy Preview

What are you talking about? Amy Sedaris looks exactly like this! (I'm working on my last assignment for portraiture class, picturing my personal idol. Just so happens I'm very happy with the way this is going and because of that I couldn't care less that it's totally unrecognizable. Come on man, rodeo bunny!)

Kink Preview

Just a little taste of what I'm working on in my printmaking class. I'm saving the "ew" parts for later.

Skinny Jimmy

For another portraiture assignment- one where we were given randomly generated sentences describing various characters. It was a tossup between Jimmy and some giant lady who ate cigarettes before "she came," and I like my Jimmy sketch more. Plus I'm doing kinky old ladies for another assignment...

Skinny Jimmy Sketch

I love drawing old people.

Sweet Tweets, Take Two

After critique I tweaked some things with my birds, so here is the final final result for all eight spots. My favorite just might be the bike messenger guy.

Tweet Spots

Some of the spots I did for new class competition for an article about Milwaukee tweets for Milwaukee Magazine. Sorry they're a little blurry, I just took some quick screen shots before going to bed. I'm not sure if I like the offset background or the centered one yet. Here are some of both.

Bus Driver Offerings

Because some teachers are cruel, they assign things like "illustrate an embarrassing moment you've had while going to MIAD" and then I end up drawing things like this... because I am a pervert. Chelsey had forgotten her bus pass so I was merely making the suggestion that she offer the bus driver something else in exchange for his services, however I managed to do so while a big tour of potential MIAD students was being led right past us in the illustration studios. My bad, heh?

These were my two options for how to illustrate that equivalent of shouting "blowjob!"- popular vote elected the second.

Before, when the lines were all brown and stuff.

Finished version. Some things I want to change, but overall I'm happy with it. I changed my embarrassing moment late in the game so that coupled with Easter caused me to rush a little bit at the end, but for something that was primarily done in one night, I like it.
