Hand Sketches






Illustration Assignments of The Past


Illustrate the day of the dead : skeletons partying in a tequila bottle.

Still Life


We were given a list of items and were to pick 3 items and create a story :
I choose couple dancing , two people rowing, and a heart..(twisted the meaning of the couple around to an underwater demon couple dancing.
(Finish the sentence Love is..)
..Sacrifice
I know jess likes the colored version, but I think my rough sketch turned out better :)

Depict yourself at 10 years old



Given a poem to illustrate


Was to create a poster for our more sustainable solution for a wasteful company.
My idea was instead of throwing away Christmas window decor, why don't we iron them onto book bags and reuse them.


Same assignment as the pick three items. Had the same teacher twice and he was absent so I suppose this was his back-up assignment.

Some 'Ol Fav Sketches from Me Sketchbooks






Portraits

Assignment to turn yourself into a character from the past or a fictional character ( emphasis on costume ). At first I desperately wanted to paint myself as Darth Maul or Cleopatra, but neither worked out so well, but I'm quite happy with my choice of geisha Kara :)
