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...
