This blog is the best thing I ever saw.

Also posting the work I did for the Somerset Collection bag design competition and the Detroit Zoo Contest. Didn't win or place in them but I had fun coming up with something that fit the bill and was still me.

Now that graduation and everything is over I'm just going to take my time and do more work on my portfolio. For my reviews one big suggestion I got was to try working with media to really refine my form turning. I know that I love ink work so I will continue to use that but I am going to do some playing with oils a lot this summer as well as trying out some new digital approaches. Drawing is where I'm most comfortable and I'm excited to work with oils and see what I get out of it; plus at least its summer and ventilation won't involve sitting by a cold window like last winter hah.

Anyhow here's another work from senior studio this last semester on an article about female metalheads. I don't know if I'm cool enough to call myself a metalhead but I do listen to a few choice awesome metal bands and you bet I listened the hell out of them while I worked on this. I think this is a good example of a media issue and I am going to probably transfer this drawing and try to tackle it with oils this time.

oh my god! so happy I found this again. Hell yeah Diamanda Galas.

Here's a piece from junior year and some recent sketchlings. The painting was about skuld and her sisters the norns of fate. It was really fun and it makes me want to do a whole new version now...perhaps now that I have some time to work on stuff without the stress of fast deadlines.

So here's some oldies I just wanted to post. Newer stuff is on the way but I just started a move and didn't bring my new archive drive. Did these for fall semester in Object Drawing. It was my way to say wow this assignment of drawing an illuminated object sounds boring...I'm going to make it into something I love instead. They were definitely a nice experience as far as working with digital techniques (used the sketch and photoshop for them) and I think having the drawing figured out well made it easier.

Also it was pretty cool that I was simultaneously taking Diane Voss's class on optics and light reading up on the history of light and scientific theory. And that's where I figured out the titles! Lux and Illumines.
