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
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...
