I decided I hated the old cafe illustration and I fixed it after some good advice from my class. Hello outside cafe!

I'm doing a three piece series on this girl. The first will be her arriving in Paris, with her luggage, her enjoying a hot chocolate in Paris, and the last will be her on a river boat in a fabulous dress. I'm almost done with the other two! Will post them soon!

And I finally finished it last night! This was fun to illustrate!

I started this sketch last night for a piece in my world of stories. We are supposed to illustrate a story about a fellow classmate. I chose this story, I thought it was funny and in my head I thought it could look like a children's book.

I'll be finished with it by the weekend!

I finished this forever ago but never posted it! I got rid of the original la musica title, it looked stupid!

For Thiel's class our new assignment is an open assignment and he thinks I do my illustrations really fast so I'm supposed to do like three or four so I decided to do some fashion illustrations. I'm going to do fashion through the decades and dedicate an illustration to the 20s, 30s, 50s, and 60s.  I left out forties 'cause eh, not much happened (in my opinion).. But this is my current version of the 50's illo. 

I need to clean up some of the lines and I'll be done! 

Here's my sketch for the 20's gal. 

La musica

Here's another look at my La Musica posters. This is pre-text, but I'm finished the text on both posters today!

Not finished yet though!

Here's a little preview of what I'm working on for the La Musica poster. I'm sorry the quality is so bad, the original file is too big to upload so this is a crappy snapshot of it. It's much brighter in the original file!

It feels good to take a break from the wind and grind to do my own thing for a couple of minutes!

Here's a bit of an update on Farewell! I'm about to start a couple more pieces so stay tuned!

Here is the beginning of an illustration for this gentleman's book of poetry. It might be published soon. The poem is about this man's wife who is dieing and she is looking at her garden and running her fingers across her sofa. I wanted to draw her laying down (almost like she's in already in the ground) and I wanted you could soon the garden through the sofa.

This was an illustration to accompany an article about this man who wants to tax fat people because the national obesity rate is increasing at an alarming rate. So I decided to make America out of junk food. All digital. It makes me hungry just looking at it, haha! And yes, those are swedish fish swimming around the country!

It's a new year, new blog

This is about travel. It was our first assignment Mr. Thiel has given us. It was a pretty fun spot illustration.
Hey there guys, please change your bookmarks! I've decided to make a new blog, because weeeell, quite frankly, this layout is all messed up and we just can not figure out how to fix it. SOOOO let's move it on over to

I have two versions of this. One without the water ripple reflection thingies and, obviously, this one with the ripple reflections. But yeah, I'm kinda happy with how this turned out, I experimented with process I've never really tried! That's what this summer has really been for me, since I just got my wacom a few months ago, I've been trying to get a hang on it. Hopefully it'll lead to something great someday!

ps. blogger has completly washed out this image. It's much richer/more details/better resolution on my laptop
I love drawing but I have the hardest time coming up with what colors I am going to use. My teacher last year, George Pratt, told my class to look at colored illustrations we already like because you can't copyright a color scheme right?

I made this earlier today, not sure about the font but it can be changed if i feel the whim to. It totally started out as something different. But when I started to color it, I really didn't feel shading it, so I went flat.
