For those about to rock...

The title of this assignment for my Illustration 1 class was, "The History of Rock and Roll." We could use any media and it could be any size, as long as it was a square. I chose to do mine in digital, and here's the final piece. Overall it took about 40 hours.

Breakfast anyone?

Our first Illustration1 assignment was pretty basic, just illustrate breakfast, any breakfast. The catch was the we had to use a graphic style, like the works of Wayne Thiebaud. I rendered mine digitally and this is the final outcome. I hand drew all of the type aside from the date, which was a major pain in the butt.

something new...

I bought a lightbox so I could practice animating! This isn't much but I'll probably end up animating a lot more because its a nice change.

Oil Spill.

First time using oil paints, it took a while to get used to them, but I've come to the conclusion I prefer them to acrylics.
