Hey wait, remember me?

So, I've certainly been gone a long time, eh? There's really no excuse, but nevertheless I'll explain that I've been graduating/moving to a new apartment/starting a time-consuming concept art internship at Big Huge Games. In any case, I'm trying to get back on track with my true love: Illustration!

So, here's a long overdue photo:
My senior thesis show! Look, there's me, and there's a selection of my work!

Also, I recently completed a full page illustration for Spider Magazine, about a magic trick. (the page is titled "Abracadabra!") Whee!

Also, this past week/weekend I was volunteering at ICON5 in NY with an assortment of other Mica alumni/undergrads that Whitney Sherman (the chair of our department, AND the president of ICON5) recruited, and some lovely people from other art schools.
Some of the work we had to do was less than enjoyable, and we had to stay in coffin-sized YMCA rooms for 2 nights before moving to the hotel, but there were several open-bar events when I had a lot of fun chatting with the talented and excellent illustrators Sam Weber, Jillian Tamaki, and Frank Stockton.
I also bought a great $10 signed Process Recess print (radical!), and received a free American Illustration book (jawesome!). All in all, a good experience. Here's a couple of thumbprint doodles I did in the "Wreck This Journal" book I bought while I was there:

ALSO, I was featured on Lost at E Minor! Sweet! A big Thank You To Ilana!

I'm working on some new stuff, so updates soon!
'Till then! (I'm getting back on track, I swear!)
