the new Criterion Collection:)

Well this is my final for my Illustration class.  Zippo.  The last one of the year.  Obviously, the task was to recreate a dvd cover.  We could choose from Gosford Park, Spinal Tap, Chinatown, Logan's Run, The Usual Suspects, and Yojimbo.  It wasn't required to add in the text for the title, but I wanted to do my own version with the title to get the full effect, and because I was going for the very art deco, movie posters of the 30s and 40s aesthetic.  Hope you like.

I hope to be giving myself assignments throughout the summer.  So hopefully I'll keep that up.  Remind me to if you ever see me forget.  Ugh.

updation bonanza!

This is my final for my figure drawing class.  The assignment was to craft a story, create some characters, and do a three panel narrative.  In reality it was supposed to be one image per panel, but I decided to do a comic book style thing instead.  Each panel has a main image surrounded by smaller vignettes that act as borders and "fillers" as to the rest of the story.  I saw a dvd ad for Bonnie and Clyde, and that was the basic inspiration.  Enjoy amigos.
