Thesis Spots (examples)

After messing around my food illustrations for a few weeks I ended up changing the way I was working and am currently much much happier with what I am doing
Here is an example of some of the little spots and illustrations that will be working with the text

Anthropologie Internship

I had deleted this post awhile back but now that it has been some months since this was all done and made I thought it safe to post it
Some of the work I did in my Anthropologie internship this past summer

 The day I discovered that despite my horrible handwriting, I could in fact do hand-lettering

 Hours of paper clipping stringing later

Learned I could make paper shirts

1950's "B" Movie Characters

A somewhat cleaned up version of the monster that I posted last night, Joe, Betty, Guy at Generating Plant, Gramps, and Derek (could they have given them more generic names?)
We had to work only from a 90 second audio track, I don't even know which movie this is actually from yet, it was really interesting trying to design character with so little information (other than 50's and the things they were saying, some of which was very little)
Going to try and clean some of these up and get them colored and up on my website sometime during spring break (probably Betty, the monster, and maybe one of the dudes with a bit of reworking)

Bat Monster

For storyboarding we had to design 6 characters (5 human, one monster) based on a 90 second audio clip from a 1950s "b" movie.  The only information given about the monster is that it's from a cave... sooo bat inspired monster was created
Will most likely post up the sketches of the 5 human characters tomorrow

Visual Journalism (2)

Top drawing is from Caribou coffee
Bottom two were on the Baltimore circulator and then my attempts to work into the sketch
I always like the drawings far better just as sketchbook drawings (and my teacher does too) but I figured I'd play around with it.  Maybe I'll find something I like
Either way I am really enjoying this class. I think it'll really help loosen up my work

Baking blog!

That's right! I have my lovely gluten free baking blog up and running for thesis (and for fun of course)
