previews and such

here's a two previews for upcoming stuff. The first is this drawing/painting i've been working on for a while since i'm trying to see what happens when i spend a long time doing a piece instead of like 20 minutes. it's supposed to be done for this juried art show by this weekend since that's when the drop-off is, but I am thouroughly unsure of if it will get finished in time. the 2nd is this sketchbook page that i've been working on and off on. newly primed!

this last piece was something I did awhile ago that I was never satified with. annnnnd I'm still not though it is better. graphite, ink, acrylic, digital

Hey everyone, I'm finally getting around to update this thing again. Last semester was hell and you have no idea how happy I am that it's over. Lot's of drama that made it very hard to get work done. I feel like my drawing skillz have worsened which is why I'll be taking 2 drawing classes next semester. Speaking of which here's my schedule for fall!

monday: abnormal and personal psychology- Akira Otani
tuesday: Illustration concepts1-Allan Comport, Drawing: Illusionism-Susan Waters-Eller
wednesday: Drawing: Sumi-ink- Youngmi Organ
thursday: A Baroque Feast- Kim Anderson
friday: offfffffffffffff (but I'm currently signed up for DIY)

I think I'm going to try and go to Art Center in Pasadena for my Spring semester of this year. If anyone who goes there has any advice please tell me! I'm not sure what classes I'll be able to take but they'll probably be 300-400 levels? I also need to figure out where I'll be living since I don't think they have dorms. It should be nice to get out of Baltimore after the fall and focus on getting some hardcore work done.

Sooooooo this summer I'm interning for a few dudes at a little place called the pencil factory. It's basically a revamped warehouse in Brooklyn that used to be an actual pencil factory and there are like 6 floors with a wide array of creative companies. I'm working for a group of freelancers who share studio space most notably Ted, Josh, Sam, Grady, Chris, and Rachel. I'm hoping Frank Stockton makes an appearance sometime so I can keep being an illustration creepster. lol. My first day I was working with Josh (who's one of my favorite illustrators ever so I was mad nervous) and his studio-mates Niel and Alex and it was pretty shweet. If anything exciting happens I shall keep everyone posted!

and congrats to my dawg Cam for interning for Mr. James Jean.

anyways, here are some sketchbook pages from semi-recent times. the first 6 are from my old book and the last 3 are some from the new book that has been rather uncooperative. Not sure how I feel about most of these but w/e it's all good.
