I've been working a lot at IMCO Technologies doing their marketing campaign for RSNA, I want to put that stuff up here but I think I should wait until it's been released to the public, which will be very soon after Thanksgiving. It's very different from what I normally do, mostly because someone else is the one making the rules...

They offered me a full time job!! Sweet! I will have health insurance again, and I might be able to *think about getting a car. If anyone has any ideas for a type of car-I'm all ears, all I know is I want it to be small and probably 2 door. I need to spoof up my wardrobe a bit first though, I never realized I only ever wear jeans until it was inappropriate to ever wear jeans.

And I almost forgot the most important news of all - dun dun - OBAMA!! That's right. #2 in the line of presidents that I've been able to vote for, #1 in the line of presidents I've voted for that have actually won. I think it's really important that we keep the excitement that Obama's campaign has created. Americans need a reason to be proud of America. We have been kinda lacking in reasons for patriotism lately, and a person can only 'hope' that Obama can keep it up. I don't know about everybody else but I'm excited to see what we can do...

I guess I'll leave it there for today. Have a good weekend everybody, try to stay warm!

Huraaaay!! My website is finally up in it's entirety! The gallery pages have been missing for awhile but they are up now, yay!! If you wanna check it out the link is at the top of the page :D

Also I got a lot done on one of the illustrations I've been working on lately, so hopefully that one will be up here soon. Keep checking.

My respect for Obama has grown since another certain candidate for president showed up to a debate not wearing a flag pin and not a thing has been said about it. What a stupid thing to make a big deal about in the first place. Seriously.

No fun pictures today, just thought I'd throw up an update, since I'm bored and I don't very often. I've been doing a lot of my own little projects lately, but I crave deadlines!! Without them I am too easily distracted... Like just now when you missed me tapping along enthusiastically to whatever I'm listening to on Pandora (Something Corporate), while chewing my nail. I miss school. I liked having homework parties with all of my illustration buddies til the wee hours of the morning... The destination then was easy: Graduate. What's the destination now? Get Paid. It's all about the money now. I hate thinking about money. Subject change it is!

Being a big Charlaine Harris-Sookie Stackhouse fan I've been watching True Blood religiously so far. Two episodes in and here are my big issues-"Sookie" should not have the same pronounciation as "cookie" and are those not THE lamest fang-shooting-out sounds anyone has ever heard? I also think they chose the wrong teeth to put them on-I think they would look better on the next teeth over (sorry if you have no idea what I'm talking about). Thank god it's gory, if they'd messed that up too, I might have had a problem watching.

Now that I've ranted a bit, I really need a scanner!
Later everybody!

Max 2

For some reason it's not letting me add to my last post, so here are the two versions that weren't in it. And F.Y.I. I named her Max.

Max 1

Well, hello everyone!! I had inspiration in the form of the front cover of Maxim (that I've mysteriously started receiving). And these are what I made, obviously they're basically the same-I played with the colors. It's all digital... There was another way that I liked the colors but I forgot to save that one, so I'll probably get it up here sometime in the future... I like the last one the best.

What's up everybody? This is another afterlife piece from my thesis. This one is called "Ghosts" I found a story about a culture in Africa where they believe that ghosts haunt cemeteries and live in trees, here's my interpretation.

A Quicky in the Woods ;)

I've started two new pieces that I'm putting time and effort into but they are both unfinished as of yet, so in the meantime have some art...

This is pretty recent. I started it in acrylic, used watercolor to do most of it, and finished it in Photoshop.

4th of July Self Portrait

Go figure that I would post on a national holiday... Anyways I was at my aunt's house today for the celebration and I decided to practice my photoshop drawing when I got back. Plus I had the perfect subject since, while having loads of fun while I was there, I also got bitten by about 20 mosquitoes. So here is what I've dubbed "Stupid Mosquitoes."

The Skillful Huntsman Concept Art

I did character development for the story "The Skillful Huntsman," a Grimm's Fairy tale. Of course, I couldn't just illustrate it strait so I did my interpretation. I set the story in space with a futuristic/victorian style, and the huntsman was turned into a Treasure Huntsman. Let me know if you like what you see.

I'm adding these now because I just made a bunch of changes to the color one and I thought I would get it out here for people to see.

Textured Ladies

So these three illustrations were my first-time-experiments playing with texture in photoshop. They were done in free time about 8 months ago, I call them the Angle Girls. I'm trying to be better at remembering to add things to this blog, even though the only person that I know for a fact reads it is me. Hopefully one day I'll be a famous illustrator and then people will come here and be astounded that I am a normal person just like they are. Hopefully.

Here is another one of my thesis pieces for your eyes to inspect. Have fun! And let me know what you think!!

Or it could always turn into what was memorable about the month or year... haha Anyways I'm now finished with my senior show. I created the concepts, sketched a zillion sketches, painted for hours and hours and was finally able to hang things on the wall that I could be mostly proud of. Awesome.

So there are seven pieces; 2 Heavens, 2 Hells, a Reincarnation, a Purgatory, and some ghosts. Here's a little taste. This one is loosely based on the traditional "streets of gold"/"second paradise" version of Heaven.

First Blog Post

I suppose the first post should really be something amazing. Seeing as I have no time to make something amazing, this is what you're going to get. This is the first picture in a line of pictures that I'm planning to create featuring whatever was memorable about the day, which will probably end up being more about what was memorable during the week... Anyway, I will make and add a new one when I can.
