Character Designs for Tu

These were for an assignment for one of my classes where we had to come up with characters, their personalities, and a story to surround them.  I did these with watercolor and scanned them, and I hate how scanned work looks.  Trust me that the real ones look better than these crappy scans.

I call them Aki Lenore, Charlie Sinclair, and Ocho, respectively.

Fairy Abuse and Bubble Prophylactics

The first is a piece for Editorial Illus.  We had to twist a fairy tale to fit into an PSA against child abuse.  I chose The Boy Who Cried Wolf.  It's "subtle" as my teacher would say, as to its references to the original story, but it worked he thought.

The second piece was for a short love story in the New Yorker.  It's about a guy who starts dating a girl who is neurotic and OCD and hates germs.  She goes so far as to have sex with full body condoms and makes her new beau go through a series of physicals and medical exams and tests.  She eventually leaves him when she finds out he's a shoe salesmen, and touches unclean feet.  :)
