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?!

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...

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.

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 :)

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!

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...

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 :)

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.

My first piece of this school year is due on tuesday in Senior Studio. Wednesday my second piece is due in Book Cover. I still have to go into it with colored pencil to make it 'pop'. I still have monday in class to work on it though :) I'll post the finished one when it's done.
