Collabin' and other projects

seems like this semester just keeps on throwing more and more at me, but i can handle it (just wish i had more time to play my PS3).

the next project that i have to work on is a collaboration for my SENIOR PORTFOLIO class. seems pretty simple enuff since i do have a bunch of illustrator and art friends. i might hook up with my boy Matt Gee (pretty cool graffiti art style) and try to bust something out with that and my pen and ink skillz. we'll see how this turns out in the end....tho, i miiiight actually try to go digital with this bad boy.

i still want/NEED to work on some personal pieces. my little squirrel guy, Radicchio, needs more time in the spotlight. i think i'm gonna get down with that after the semester's done and over. i'm ready for a damn break before my last semester hits this FALL.

aiiiight, back to more sketching and planning before i head off to work.


Dia De Los DONE.

well, it took a helluva while (sweat, tears, near starvation) but i finally finished my poster piece for class. i'm pleased with how it came out.

i think i'm really starting to pick up on this DIGITAL action. more to come.

Just A Bit More.

so, here's a bit more progress in my poster design, i've gotten more used to the program (layers and how they work). this is turning out pretty nice. once i get the basic shapes laid out i can focus on effects and all that jazz...


aiight, back to work.

Dia De Los Muertos Poster Assignment

so i'm currently working on my newest assignment for class, a poster design. i decided on the holiday DIA DE LOS MUERTOS because there's just something about it that draws me to it.

in any case, i think i'm off to a good start, but i'm gonna leave it here for now (work soon). build up the shapes then work on the effects and all that afterwards.

New Post. YEP.

here's another image of mine that the posting first time around didn't do it justice. i just need to invest in a nice scanner, but until then my school's facilities will have to do ;)

the original was a charcoal sketch of one of the models in my clothed figure drawing class a couple of semesters back. i decided to go back and spice him up with a lil pen and ink with a watercolor finish.


this beauty is a fave of mine. i went and experimented with coffee along with the watercolor and pen. i like the result and i'm currently planning another in the series.

Watercolors & Inks

here's another piece featuring my little squirrel character whose name i have YET to decide on. i like how this one came out, it's simple and that what i dig about it. had to get a better scan 'cuz the first time around it was pretty dark.



here's the first in a series that shall remain nameless for now (i love surprises). just a little collage of character action here.

^ what my mind is full of.

Pen Practice

here's a lil' something from a few weeks ago. i basically took an original graphite sketch by George Coghill and brought it into ILLUSTRATOR and messed around with layers, the pen tool, and other various functions. fun stuff!

Updating :)

it's been a while since i've last updated but let's just say it's been a helluva spring break. here's a little something i did recently for class:

behold, my Marvel Bears. it was for a symbol assignment for my vector art class. i decided that i wanted to use bears for the subject matter and unify them all by turning them into various Marvel Comics heroes and villains. i like how they came out. big fan of the Venom bear.

i'm feeling a bit more confident with my CS5 skills.
