Wait... what?

FINALS WEEK!!! The last week of school is very hectic, so I leave you with this. My last Illustration project of spring semester 2008! You read about the beginning of it in my last post.


Hello, bird.

Ornithology was the inspiration for this project. I researched birds, and thought of the Monk parrots that live in my hometown, that are actually native to South America. Do they belong here? This took me on a tangent, looking at birds and where they do and don't belong. Here are some artist trading cards I came up with during the project. TWEET.

July, ahhhh summer.....

Calendars!!! I was assigned the month of July and discovered that July is ice cream month. Who knew? So here is my ice cream inspired calender page.
"Mmmmm... mint chocolate chip."

Final Fork Forest!

Here is my final fork project, finally! It took me a really long time to get used to the pastels, and I still haven't quite got the hang of them, I suppose I'll have to practice more. The final forks apparently did take on a more "Wizard of Oz" theme, ENJOY!

Forks Forever

Here is a sketch I came up with at the last minute for this project. The assignment started off as an article that talked all about the history of, and interesting facts about forks. This comic was sort of a take off on how the chinese chopsticks were used for a long time before forks were invented.

Fork you.

Our newest assignment is all about forks. Here is one of the ideas I'm trying to work out. It's sort of a fork in the road play on the Wizard of Oz, but it will probably evolve and change. I will post my final piece next Thursday, so continue biting your nails with excitement until then.

My Adorable Book Plate

We had to create a book plate for illustration class, so here it is!
Of course, this actually comes in handy after acquiring about a million books for required reading in college. And another plus to the assignment, is that I decided to use myself as a child in the plate. So bask in the glow of my magnificent bookplate and obsess over how cute I was when I was little.
