My BFA project

So I am slowly working on my BFA project and I have gotten a color study from the children's book my uncle wrote. It's about my cousin Makenna who is trying to decide what she wants to be for Halloween. This is her dressed up as a lion as her father suggested. Enjoy!

Awesome Album Art

So this post is not about my work, but I was listening to Feist yesterday and I looked at the album art and was like "I need to blog about this!" I just want to simply say that the album art is fantastic and so are all the songs. I chose some more inspiring albums to share with you. Happy Tuesday!

Sun dancer

Well I have been so busy lately, some may think that I have disappeared of the face of the earth. Not so! I have been drawing, painting and working in illustrator and photoshop consistently from 4:30 am to 7 pm everyday this week to catch up in all my art projects. It came to me that I haven't posted anything new in over a week and I am excited to show you my interpretation of the sun! It is to compliment my dancing moon piece I did a few months ago. I have to say doing a graphic image of a girl doing a barrel roll was no easy task. I still have some tweaking to do, but I still want to share with you! Have a great President's day weekend!

Disobedient Elephant

This is version 1 of this illustration. The requirement of this project was to incorporate the words circus, president, and sin. When I first got this I thought it would be impossible to do. I brainstormed all the synonyms for these words to see how they could relate. I decided that president could be the ring master, since he is in charge of the circus. I wanted to make this a children's book illustration so with sin I chose disobedience, where it is not serious but enough to know that it is not an encouraged behavior. I wanted to try to make my style of my dancers fits into a children's book by mixing digital and hand drawn ink. Looking at it now I would like to change my drawing a bit by making the ring master pointing out to the arena, telling the elephant to get out there. I also want to make the elephant crossing her arms and turning her waist and head away from the ring master. I hope you enjoy it so far!
