Acrylic and colored pencil on 6"x8" Vellum paper.
This is the last and final illustration for this long Project, that I started JUST one week ago! I had a good three weeks to do it but ultimately with 2 other projects a few redesigns, work, this got pushed to the very last minute. BUT I LOVE IT!
This project proves that I can theoretically illustrate a book soon in the future. There are 5 other illustrations that go along with this one before it. And it is like a little mini, adorable children's book... C:
Tomorrow I get to present it along with a caribou book that I completely designed on the computer that I'm also so excited about. Then ... I am done with this semester and on to the next after Christmas.

this is one complete piece of paper with everything connected, just a bunch of well planned holes in it.
This is my third project for 2 dimensional design. I'm pleased with how easy it was for me but then I am also displeased because I could have pushed myself to make it just a bit better. This almost always happens for every thing I make. At first I'm soo impressed with myself then by the time I finish all I can think about is what I could do better for a next project.
also I would be much more content if I would have realized deer don't have human back legs, theirs are bent opposite. Honestly Heather, who will notice?!

I spent 9 hours working on this today for my Desktop design class. It was equally frustrating but exciting.
This is only half of what I wanted to do with it, but for now I'll live with this and if I get time I'll add on all the texture that is gona be the fur.

There are still a lot of problems with it, and I TRIED to fix them but I'm only 12 hours into my 1 million hour run to being a master, so time will fix them.
For now I'm happy with it, I'm glad to say it's more then I could have ever imagined when I started this class a month ago.
Now I go for a bike ride!

I don't believe I heard myself when I said There won't be many more small paintings done due to my summer classes. Lately that's all I've been doing, and all I want to do.

Schools almost over, but that also means schools close to starting again. I have one more assignment for web design, and maybe a book cover to do but then I'll be good. I want to finish a few projects before the end of summer and go places but my mood has slowly been sinking. It finally feels like summer though, up in the 80's, the sunlight is hot and there's a screeching noise that always comes at this time of year. I'm sure I'll be cheering up soon and out of the doldrums.
At least 3 weeks spent in English class learning a book called The Phantom Tollbooth and I will never forget the word DOLDROM EVER! That was literally a nightmare in a book.

this one is a poster design as a promotion for active older adults for Skate land.
This is the first time I have done this style in such large scale. It was very nerve racking, but I'm very pleased especially with the portrait.

A card for my mother's mother. The other day Dad, Kyle Her and I went out to lunch for Grandmother and mother in law day. She's always so sweat and darling. I couldn't help but smile at her curled hair. It's now paper white with the ends still yellow like they were dipped in gold.

Commission for a classmate I had in High school.
He's a kind, lighthearted guy who until recently I found is the greatest guitarist I've had the pleasure of knowing. Yet I still haven't been able to see him perform, and really would love to. You're an amazing person Obi. I'm constantly impressed with how much your excelling with your talent. It was a pleasure to create this for someone as equally creative. I'm glad you asked me to make this for you C:
She asked me to do a piece for her after she heard about my 1st and 2nd places in the NHCC gallery. My amazing co-worker was excited to spread the word and show whoever my art. My manage had a look at my blog and immediately showed me a picture of an adorable great Dane. She wanted the piece as a thank you card for her room mate that she is moving away from now that she is getting her own house. The dog is her roommate's and the cat is hers.

Triadic color scheme: (yellow green, blue purple, red orange) with black and white
This portrait was really fun to do. On my regular blog I posted the picture I used for this. I was able to create this really deep shadow on the side of my face which is now a deep mysterious blue shadow. I also set up the background with odd decorative picture frames that helped carry the whimsical feel I was going for.
I'm always surprised when ever I do a project as big as this, it somehow gets easier and less stressful with every new one.

But I can now say I'm greatly relieved. Yesterday was the opening night to the NHCC student art gallery and I came just in time to accept two awards granted to me. I won a 2nd place (there were 2) for painting on my self portrait and a 1st place on my illustration of the color quilt.
Up next I have a small collection of my art being displayed in the NHCC campus center for the art's festival and I might be more excited for that one just in the fact that it's a collection and looks cohesive.
