First of all, thanks to all of you who took the time to visit my little blog kick-off! It was nice hearing from everyone who commented on my first post, and hopefully I can make some more posts to hold your interest.
I know I said I was going to put up thesis stuff--but I lied......I'm sorry! I'm actually feeling pretty uninspired with it right now, but I'm working on getting back on track. In the meantime, I have some sketches for your perusal!
In our senior thesis classes, we each started off with a moleskin sketchbook, which we had to give a one word theme (like, "discovery" or "flower" or "skullcrushing" or anything else we could come up with). Then, every week you had to grab a new sketchbook and put something in it relating to the theme. Here's some examples of themes I drew for (sometimes I added photoshop coloring, just for fun):
(however, according to zeitgeist expert Jeremy Enecio, drawing people with antlers just went out of style, so I'm ashamed to say that I'm terribly unfashionable)
Silly. That picture is actually from a fashion show I was in last year--the designer made a bunch of postcards with me on them (eee...), and I figured I might as well put them to use. Plus, I love sweets!
Hey, remember those sexy Hindenburg people? I had always meant to do one more, and this was actually my favorite one, but I never got the time to do it.....maybe this summer. Here's the lineart and my rough color sketch:
Finally, just a random sketch from my sketchbook I decided to color real quick:
Jeremy also tells me that owls are also out of fashion, but I liked owls before they were in fashion. So there!
More updates later. This was our first week with Frank Stockton in my fashion class! Our first assignment is to make an illustration for "something you wouldn't mind shortening your life for" (Doesn't "being an illustrator" fit into that category...?)
It's a toughie, but I'll have some sketches for next week.
Maybe they'll include buffets! Or bears!
