And now for something a little bit different...

Photography!
I do black and white film photography (dark room) as well, although not nearly as often as illustration
Here are a few prints from the semester...
The above print is a part of a series of double exposures, I should have more of them to post later

Don't Ask Don't Tell

Op-Ed piece done in Illustration 1 class earlier this semester
The assignment was that Time Magazine called and tells you they need a piece by the end of the day
Basically we had to choose between the Chilean Miners article or the Don't Ask Don't Tell article and plan/finish our piece in the 5 hours of class time

Mine is Don't Ask Don't Tell based on a quote from the article that went something along the lines of recruiters hands would no longer be tied by sexuality allowing them to pick the best and brightest recruits regardless of sexual preference

Apologies for the somewhat poor quality... the paper really isn't that dark in the corners
Original is 11"x14" done entirely in Pencil


Animated Series

We had to pitch an animated series for Illustration One
This film would be called Dark Shadow
It follows the story of Romy and Cyrene
The merfolk and humans co-habitate underwater, the merfolk living in the ocean and the humans living in a lush environment encased in glass built into the sea rock
One day a dark shadow cases over the whole ocean and suddenly merfolk start to go missing
They immediately blame the humans but when they show up at the humans environment, they realize that they are having the same problem
Cyrene shows Romy an ancient book they discovered that speaks of a similar occurrence about 1000 years prior
Using said book, the two (with the help of other side characters) discover what has been going on...

You get to find out what has been happening in a later post, because I do not currently have the artwork for it :]
Cyrene

Romy
