holy smokes!

It's been quite a while since I've updated! I finished this painting a long time ago and didn't ever post it. So here it is! Been keeping busy lately designing CD covers, logos and anything else I come across. I'll post more about all that later.

exercising my art brain

Chad's parents just moved into a new house, and they've asked me to make a painting for their kitchen! So they sent me a picture of a painting that they wanted me to use as reference. I figured this was a good opportunity to exercise my reference copying skills and get a little bit more comfortable using oils. This is only my second time. Here's what I've got so far

First time for everything

I've been wanting to do a painting of lips for a vacant wall in my apartment. I finally got around to doing it and decided it would be a good time to try oils. So here is my VERY first ever attempt at oil painting. I'm happy about it :)

Happy Mother's Day!

I had to make 3 mother's day cards this year. My mom loved hers and Chad's mom loved hers!!

It's all downhill after this

Finals are coming up. Only 8 more official days of class for me. I'm so happy and scared and excited and nervous...but I'm sure after finals are over I'll actually be able to enjoy the ending of my journey at CCS. Here's the latest of my senior studio projects. Jack and Jill

Time to let your hair down...

This week, I stuffed 25 envelopes with samples of my work and such. It took me forever to put them together, so I'm happy to say that they are in the mail and on their way! The end of the semester and graduation are getting closer and closer! It's starting to get down to crunch time. Here's my latest project for Senior Studio. This is my version of Rapunzel...

Picking Up Pace!!

After our critique on this project we only technically have two projects left before the end of the semester! Yikes! I have business cards and image sample booklets on their way so I can start sending them out to potential clients. The end of my last semester here at CCS is quickly approaching...only two more months and I'll  be a graduated, professional artist!! wow.
Anyhoo, here's what I just finished for Senior Studio. Slow Joe is tired of being slow, so he gets roller blades :)

just a game of cat and mouse

Here is my next project for senior studio. I've moved up from traditional paper dolls to 3-D paper toys [the new generation of the paper doll].

the beginning of the end

My very last semester at CCS is in full swing. It's kind of intimidating to think that in another 4 months I will be graduated, and officially a professional illustrator! YIKES! Well, for now, here is the beginning of my first assignment for senior studio. I still have to scan it in to photoshop and finish it up, but here it is for now! I'll update with more pics when it's finished!

under construction

I got a new domain name to start making my website for my web class. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten it working yet to even put up the under construction page...but anyhoo! I did this for my welcome page :)
