I put together a self-promotional type piece. I haven't quite mastered the craft of soldering, but it was fun! I plan on making more, but probably smaller/cleaner looking. Also, I've been experimenting making jewelry using this soldering technique =) Hopefully I'll have pieces to put up fairly soon!

New Stuff!!

This is a character development piece we got in illustration class. I wrote a summary of a little story called "Joey the polar Bear Puppy." I based it off of my Great Pyrenees dog back home, so cute! It was a lot of fun and I would like to do more work similar to this. I also put a portrait of Jason in we turned in recently for painting class. We had to do a portrait of someone close to us =).

Last Semester

Here are some pieces I wanted to post from last semester. I really like the colors (and my new teapot!) I picked for the teapot, this one was done in painter in my computer illustration class. The book cover for "A Little Princess" was a lot of fun. I started off with a sketch then used photoshop for scanned in textures. I used the burn tool a lot as well, I think it helped a lot with the mood. The Christmas card thing is a small snippit of this promotional piece I did, but I thought i would include it anyway. The little boy eating a pepper is a series piece inspired by my brother that I put together for illustration class. Lastly, I included my last figure painting of the semester. I worked fairly small that time, but I like how it turned out for the most part.
