New Places to Go

Okay, so I'm working on building a more professional and complete public identity which warranted a new email and a new blog (since I can't transfer this one to my new email).  So any further updates can be found here: my new blog .  Bear with the dust since it's a work in progress!

The Metamorphosis Cover

This is my final project for my Editorial Illustration class.  We had to design a cover for The Metamorposis by Franz Kafka.  Fun stuff.

So I recently became aware the fact that Google Chrome sucks are understanding CMYK color modes.  So if you're looking at my blog with Chrome be aware that any of the digital paintings made for print are going to look bad when they are viewed.  I'm working on re-uploading those that need to be but until then be warned!  Viewers on IE9 and Firefox can rest easy because there seems to be no problem there.

***UPDATE***Okay, as of now all the stuff in the first few pages (at least) has been swapped to RGB.  So now it should all display correctly.

Talking to Myself

No, that's not what I feel I do with this blog... It's kind of what I'm doing in this painting though.  Done for my Editorial Illustration class.  The article published in Esquire magazine with the same name as in the image.

Poster Project

This is probably one of the first things that I have produced in a while that I am completely happy with.  I know, that's kind of sad but maybe it means there's more good stuff to come.  Also, it was brought to my attention during class critique that I subconciously hid a second image in here.  Can you find it?

DIL 317 A - Photo Realistic Paintings

Yeah, the title says it all.  I know that some people feel these kinds of paintins are kind of hollow, but I've always had an appreciation for hyper-realism in paintings.

Finally Final

I finished this a really long time ago but just now got around to posting it... I'm rather lazy, am I not?

DIL 317 A - Changes and Stuff

Alright, obviously the blog is undergoing some style changes... Bear with me (if anyone really takes note of my blog anyhow!) they will come together soon!

Besides that, here's my weekly post for class.  This is a pretty cool little blog filled with comics about various games from the hay-day of Nintendo for the most part.  I love this style though it's something way too loose and whimsical for me to actually replicate... Enjoy!

DIL317 A - The Other Side of Fat

While the world is focused on trying to control the obeisity problem, which is a real threat, there is another side that is often neglected.  This video makes a wonderful example.

Lions Card Competition

Every year the Detroit Lions football club has a contest for people (not sure if it's just students, or students from where) to design their holiday (yay for being PC) card for that year.  This is my submission.  10X14 (to be reduced to 5X7) PSCS4
