The colors!

Hello there... I am now trying to get back to work... giving myself projects... remembering how much I love all of this...

I am currently having a problem with posting my images... the colors are not coming out as vivid as they actually are (and sometimes not close a tall)... if you know how to correct this problem please help me out. Feel free to comment with any input you may have to correct the situation...


you're the only fish in the sea for me...

You are the paint on my canvas, the color that makes me shine, you are it all...

My last project at the Fashion Institure of tecnology. I wanted this project to mean more to me than any other. My last semester was the best semester by far. I had great friends, and finally found the style I think fits me. I didn't want tlo just do the project to do it. We had all the freedom in the world, which was good and bad (but mostly good) and I wanted to take advantage of it, and come out with something spectacular.

I wanted this project to mean something for me for the rest of my life.

Although I do not normally work digitally, it was definately neccessary for this one.
I wanted to illustrate quite possibly the best part of FIT, the people that I grew to love.

Noone could ever understand what we went through, but eachother. We are forever connected through the struggles, the ups, the downs, the bs...

Some people say we didn't go to "real college", and although we may not have had to take as many written exams, we were tested everyday, and we did it, we supported eachother, tested eachother, challenged eachother and did it together.

So, for my final project at the school that helped make me who I am today, I wanted to show the people that not only grew into my classmates, my best friends, and my competition, they grew into my family. We may or may not celebrate holidays, and have dinner together every night, but these people are more like a family to me than anything I have ever had.

So this project is dedicated to them. The Illustration Graduates of 2007.

When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely
I will paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful


I wanted to explore a different area of Illustration with my next mentor project. After a wonderful presentation by William Low on Larry Days work, I was intrigued by storyboards, so I contacted Mr. Day and got an assignment. I though I could do it, and I still think I can but I feel like the ones I did may be a little too stylized. I think maybe they should be more realistic, and more straight forward. I think that all of the panels on their own are successful illustrations. The background definately is too much, and I plan on changing it, to send the focus back to the foreground.

I like the characters I created, maybe I can take them further...

Silent Spread...

The story I choose was extremely short. One line per page, if that.

I wound up making two spreads wordless.

In the second half of the story, there is a character named Katie, so I wanted to introduce her. So I tried to have just an entrance scene. I think it was successful in the idea, and the drawing, but maybe the color lacks a bit.
