Color study

When I was a junior in college I took a children's book illustration class. We had to make pencils of the book and only complete like two or three pieces so I have all these left over pencils from the class. I've decided in my down time I will finish them! Here's a color study of one of the pencils!

I've arisen from the dead

I am the worst. THE WORST!! I haven't updated in forever!! Not that anyone is following this anymore....

Well, just to give a quick update on my life, I started freelancing for a company and I've made a bunch of puzzles for them, icons, and a childrens book! I was so busy freelancing, that I didn't do any personal art!


I moved to Atlanta to start an internship as a designer in the Home, Gift & Toy department at Carter's!

So it's been a crazy few months my dears. BUT! I will start posting again. I don't have any finish pieces I am allowed to show right now but I've been drawing in my sketch book like mad so tomorrow I will start posting my sketch book again.

To make up for my bad behavior, I will post really embarrassing unfinished art from the past few years. Please, feel free to laugh at me.

Color study of a painting I finished in...april.

Umm..Started this September of 2010... kinda forgot about it...

I made this after I finished reading Anna Karenina in 2009

Don't judge me

Doodled this while I was watching Dr. Who. I think I need to draw some Who fanart. :)

Audrey Hepburn doodle

I doodled this last night while I was suffering from insomnia and watching Arrietty the Borrower. By the way, the movie was gorgeous and I loved it, thank you Studio Ghibli!

Wanna see a sneak peak?

Here's a little color study (SNEAK PEAK) of my wedding invitations. My wedding has been occupying my head lately instead of art, bad Alyssa!

I can't tell which I want to finish. The balloon type or the regular one? Any opinions?

I can't wait to star the finish on my invitation!

Pirate ship

I doodled this today before work. I can't tell if I like the first one or the second more and I just realized it needs a pirate flag, haha! But this is based on a super old sketch in my sketch book. I think I am going to start going through all my old sketchbooks and try to execute some of my old ideas!

ps. I always wanted to be a pirate from Neverland!

Illustration Friday - Soaked

Sometimes it gets a little frustrating when your elephant keeps giggling during bath time!

Ringling is over! After many all-nighters, tears, starvation, and critiques; my life as an art student is over! Of course I will always consider my somewhat a student because I never want to stop progressing but I am now a professional! (I wish I felt like it...)

I am happy to present my thesis! It was an introduction book to Greek Gods! I want to take each individual characters' story and make a book for them! Or at least a couple of illustrations. I have a lot of plans and ideas though...

There are a couple left but I will update that tomorrow!
