Illustration Project Final #8


Most. Favorite. Assignment. Ever.

For this one, we had to draw a portrait of someone, anyone, anyone at all--and then this would be used as a promo piece for places we would like to work at. My professor suggested that instead of one rider I have a whole bunch of riders posing, since I wanted to do this in a sort of sequential manner...since I plan to go into comics. Acrylic and ink.

Edit: cleaned it up a bit here and there, re-uploaded.

Illustration Project Final #7

Piece for an essay about how WWII is portrayed differently then it actually was. I feel like I could have used another day on this.

My Favorite Book

...was Mr. Popper's Penguins, when I was very very little. Lithograph.

Illustration Final # 6

Wine label design for Periscope Cellars. It's a puhi. : D

This is close, but not quite there. Could use some variation in tone and such. Still, I am very pleased with this piece. Acrylics and ink as usual.

Illustration Final #5

Illustration done for an Op-Ed (opinion editorial article) assignment. The article I chose was Michel Pollan's "Big Food VS Big Insurance." It's a really great read. I'm a bit ashamed that I couldn't come up with more then this cliche idea, since the article was so great, but an Op-Ed piece is supposed to be concise and simple.

It's such a great feeling to work with just ink. : D

Illustration Final #4

This project was a CD cover. I was assigned MC5's "Kick Out The Jams". There's a few mistakes here and there, and I think I should have paid more attention to the lines. Mrf. Not one of my best attempts.
