Earlier, this past September, I moved in with three people i had never met before. After we had all unpacked and had settled in we somehow congregated in the dining room and began to share some of our stories with each other and quickly became friends. One of the girls, Jannet, began telling us of when she was kid and her mother found her eating her turtle's food. Her mother was a little concerned and went to the pet store and asked if it was safe? It turns out it was. It's all protein, who knew?
Jannet then asked me what program I was in and told her "fourth year illustration", she got so excited that I could draw and said "draw me!"
And so I did, it was just a quick little thing but now it hangs on our fridge and everyday when i look at it I remember how healthy turtles are.
A few years ago I was challenged with illustrating "today's ideal beauty". My Idea of beauty is very different than the idea of beauty portrayed in magazines and the media. Young girls are seeing that if you're a certain look and you are really really dumb then you're beautiful. Hence, the Bimb-O-Matic! Intelligent individuals go in and blond bimbos come out.
Unfortunately the original was lost forever, so I did it again. It's still a work in progress, but it'll be ready soon.
This is an older piece from last semester, 2010. The idea was to create characters and give them a personality. I'm not sure if I pulled it off but I had a lot of fun creating it and I love making up characters.
For narrative class, we were given the task of putting together our own story. This is the first page of possibly 9. I know you're probably thinking, "where is this going?" Well, you'll just have to wait to find out.
I don't style my hair, my bed is my stylist. Every morning I wake up to a mess of curls and waves and never know what to do with it. Half awake and just looking for that first cup of coffee, I try to toss it all together as fast as I can. Results may vary.
