here is some concept art for a fictional video game i made up about vikings. the two environments pictured are scenes from 2 of the 9 realms in norse mythology. the fiery death lava place is called 'hel'(appropriately), and the cold mountainous giant pillar place is called 'niflheim'(a mouthful). anyways, i was focusing a lot on mood and scale in these pieces so hopefully they both are distinct in those areas.

environment

trying my hand at design. i should point out that the design was based on something warren linn (www.warrenlinn.com) had done. he commissioned me to digitize it for him. i took some liberties with the layout, type, and color however.

Oils around 20x32

These are a few drawings out of my sketchbook. I started a new one recently because my other one was lost on the way to New York. It now resides under the seat of a China Town Bus and will remain there for all eternity.

This was done for Illustration. The assignment was to either do a piece for a "beatnik barbershop" thats opening up soon or do the cover for Gay Life. I opted with the latter because I felt I could be a little more free with it.

This was done for my illustration class. We made an exiquiste corpse of words and drew the result. My sentence turned out to be: "Dionysus found the treasure in a paper sailboat."

Here are some environments I've done in my spare time (rare these days). A lot of experimenting goes on with these just to find a method of working that best suits me.

Done for Illustration Club. There is an accompanying haiku:

Pixel and Cathode
R G B C M Y K
Electric Alive

Any thoughts about the color?


This was a copy of a John Singer Sargent painting called "The Sulphur Match". We had to replace one of the characters with a self portrait emphasizing our contemporary setting. Very fun to do. Learned a lot. Oils.

A troll with his game. Watercolor.


Here is a piece done for Illustration I. The assignment was to create an album cover for one of our favorite bands. Pretty self explanatory.

Fresh Start

Well, I finally found the motivation to start a blog. I've visited blogs of my friends many-a-time in a late night internet desperation and decided to help the cause. If all goes according to plan, I can use this as a medium to post my work for school as well as some personal stuff. I've been hesitant about making a website because the work I'm doing in school right now is all over the place and doesn't seem like good "website" material. As an illustration major, I am able to take classes in a bunch of different areas. I'm taking an illustration class, a more traditional painting class, as well as a class about visual journalism, aptly named "Visual Journalism". The work that will be posted will be from these classes as well as some fun stuff. Hopefully I can stay on the ball about keeping the thing updated...
