My first big project of the semester is DONE. My life for the past week has been this advertising campaign. As you saw in my last post, I ended up taking my own photos (something I've never had to do before). I'm rather proud of how the photos turned out, so here's a sampling of them!

My Life

This has been my life today. An improvised lightroom, hand made props, and lots & lots of produce.

Busy Busy

Sorry for the lack of updates..

School has kicked into gear, with one project breaking away from the pack as the Most Time Consuming and Annoying. It doesn't help that a couple of days ago I scrapped everything I had been working on for three weeks (what had I been working on all that time?! I don't even know) and basically started over.

Today I am hoping to finish the whole thing up.

I hope I can get my butt in gear.

I woke up smack in the middle of a dream, and now my hands don't want to work right. I've had to correct so many typos in this little post alone, that I'm reaaallllly beginning to doubt that my skills with an x-acto will be  up to snuff today.

In case you were wondering, I woke up in the middle of throwing a little boy off a fence because he was infected and if he touched water, the spores would reproduce and kill us all. He was trying to climb the fence because other children were escaping from a boat (on water; you see where that is going?) to get to land, and he wanted to join in. And I was like "oh no you don't, you got the spores".

I'm cruel in my dreams.



this was my face when i found out

Seriously though, I'm super happy for those two kool kats. I wish wish wish I could be in Indiana with them right now!!!!!!!


Hey, wow, it has been a loooooong time. It pained me to be away from comics for so long.

My trip to Georgia was awesome! I had a great time with my two traveling buddies, Travis and Dylan. The wedding was beautiful, and the pre-party of unlimited free drinks wasn't too bad either :)

But after a hectic weekend and a week of non-stop classes, I've had absolutely no time for art. None at all. Not even a doodle. It's really sad, actually.

I do, however, have something to show you! I got the O-K to put this online recently, so I figured I'd give you a look at what I made over the summer. It's a pro-bono project for GMU's homecoming brochure that I did as a favor for my friend Andrew (hi Andrew!). As frustrating a project as it was (I never have drawn a map before, nor will I ever ever again), I'm pretty happy with the final product! You can actually navigate around campus with this! Well... except for the dorms. I kinda just let those muddle together..... WITHOUT FURTHER ADO.

(I really do recommend viewing this full size)
Ta-Da! A map of my campus! Complete with disproportionate mascot, balloons, and statue! This is all the art I've got for you for now, so take it or leave it :)
