substitues for the El Sleezo Cuties

I finished my final for Chuck's class! I really like it! I also finished my final for Senior Studio. I like it too.

Cast Glass final

Here is my final for my cast glass class. Eventually, these pieces will be mounted so they look like they're coming out of the wall when they're hung. The concept behind this was "temptation".

what was in my glass cubbie?

Since it's the last week of school, I had to clean out my cubbie in glass class. Here are the pieces that were inside!

A test apple I did before starting my final.

A little pixy thing I made up.

and a Kermit bust!!

Here is what I've been working on lately. My second to last piece for senior studio. I illustrated one of my favorite poems from my childhood :) there are still some minor details in my construction that I'll have to tweak on the next piece I do like this...And of course, my last piece for Chuck's class!! it's how Kermit and Fozzie first met. at the El Sleezo Cafe. Fozzie tried to entertain the audience with his comedic performance, only to be booed at. The crowd started getting rowdy, and Kermit jumped in to save the day[and Fozzie]! who knew a frog and a bear could be BFF's and such great dancers?!

pin up process

Here are some process pictures from my pin.up book cover project. The drawing mounted onto the illustration board. The finished painting. and from there I put it into photoshop where I edited it. Chuck likes the painting better than my edited version...

personalized sigg bottle!

For Dave's class we're ordering a sample sigg bottle with our art on it as a potential promotional item. This is great because I really need one anyway, and this is an awesome excuse to get one and display my art at the same time!! So what better to have on a sigg bottle for myself than...A FROG!!! here's what I came up with.

four down, two to go...

So my fourth piece for senior studio is done for now. We have crit tomorrow so I'm sure there will be some changes. Here's what I got! My inspiration was the song "Stray Cat Strut". More specifically, the lyrics "Get a shoe thrown at me by a mean old man, I get my dinner from a garbage can...I don't bother chasing mice around. I slink down an alley looking for a fight, I howl to the moonlight on a hot summer's night! Singing the blues while the lady cats cry, wow stray cat you're a real tough guy. I wish I could be as carefree and wild, but I got cat class and I got cat style..." Here's my stray cat, loosely based off my own cats JR and Munster :)

it's my party and...

My third piece for senior studio is done. It's this little girl's birthday and she's dreaming of being a princess. Now, every princess needs a pony/stallion/unicorn! too bad this girl's parents got her a fat, sloppy, smelly used horse...anyhoo, in critique, Gil told me to de.saturate it. Here are both versions!

Pin.Up take II

Our next project in Chuck's class is a fake book cover for The Meaning of Dreams. I decided that I want to do a pin.up while I still have the chance! So, Chad took some reference pictures for me :) they were just as much as fun as the first one's Matt took. Also, I finished my Lion's Christmas card for this year...

dreams do come true

I've always wanted to be a pin.up girl, so when my friend Matt Bisset needed some pin.up reference I volunteered to model for him for a couple shots. It was fun! the pictures turned out pretty nice too! Here's a couple of the images Matt took of me :)

keep on keepin' on!

I changed some things on my first piece for senior studio after our critique. I also finished my second piece for that class. We haven't critiqued yet, so I'm sure there will be some changes made at some point...

slow and steady...

I finally finished my piece for Chuck's class. Also, I got my first piece of the semester out of the kiln in my advanced cast glass class! I'm not done cold working it yet, so consider it another work in progress. The bottom reminds me of a head of lettuce or something.

the first week

The first week of school has to come to an end. I still can't believe I'm a senior this year! I've gotten 2 projects already and here are my sketches.

I've been trying to make myself draw everyday. These are just some quick little drawings I did for fun! Rupert the Hippo, Munster Cheese Head (based off my kitty cat) and Lucas.
