Folk Poster

This is the final assignment for computer illustration, It was open so I chose to do a poster for a folk festival. I used both programs painter and photoshop to do this piece. I wanted it to have a cut out paper feel so I thought it came out pretty cool, I just wish that the text was a little bigger. Yahh schools over, time for christmas break! :)

Banjo Man

Here's an editorial piece I did for an assignment illustrating an article about an old banjo player that had miracle brain surgery while he was playing his banjo so the surgeons could pin point the part of his brain that was effecting the movement of his figures...It worked and now hes still a playin. I though it was pretty cool, this is my take on it. I had a lot of fun with this project, this is done in all acrylic. Thanks for looking, Happy Thanksgiving!

2 portraits

Here are 2 more portraits that I did for fun when Matt was doing his portrait assignment for his Illustration class. It was fun just to mess around with new techniques and media.

Digital still life

This is an assignment we had in computer illustration. It was to do a still life using a program called painter. The subject is kind of boring but it was just so we could learn the program, it was pretty cool because they try and make it seem just like you are really painting...but on a computer, kind of weird but I was pleased with the results, surely a lot less messy.

This is my last illustration assignment where we were to do a sequential illustration in 3 to 5 panels. If you can't tell it's a cat on a boat and then the man is fishing and then he caught a big fish and then you see that he caught the fish with the cat. I know it sounds sad but don't worry the cat is fine and he gets to eat some of the fish. Well anyways I was having trouble getting into this piece at the beginning but it ended up being pretty fun. After I had the drawings down I cut out all the shapes with different papers, it's the first time I have ever tried doing an illustration like this so tell me what you think! :)

This is the same thing as below but I messed around in photoshop a little more and added in some textures to make it more interesting. You can see the texture clearer if you click on the image.

This is the first time I have ever really used photoshop. I didn't really know what I was doing so let me know what you think.

300 m.p.h torrential outpour blues

Hey guys this is the 3rd illustration I did this semester. Its an illustration of a song by The White Stripes called 300 m.p.h torrential outpour blues. My interpretation of the song was that there are many different paths that you can choose to take in life but in the end you will end up dead regardless. I got really inspired when I went to San Francisco this summer and saw all the houses and apartments covering the hills. I thought it looked really cool so I used it in this piece. I had a lot of fun with the media and I think it came out pretty nice. Please comment. :) Thanks for looking.

New stuff

This is a print I did this semester in print making its one of a set of 5 prints.

Here's the first illustration I did this semester, we were to illustrate what we did over the summer. I think it came out pretty cool but I forgot to take a picture of it before my mom framed it so the picture quality is kind of crappy.

This is the second illustration assignment from this semester. If you can't tell its John Lennon and Yoko Ono depicted as Adam and eve. I thought is was appropriate seeing that they were naked in most of their pictures. I did this piece in watercolor, which is not one of my favorite medias.


This is the last illustration I did last semester. Is was an open assignment and I thought it would be cool to design a vintage consert poster. I had a lot of fun with this project although the text was time consuming. Thanks for looking :)
