This is a work I created, which was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. The words are an almost quotation of something Goldsworthy has said.

This is similar to another work I have done, or rather the same piece taken further. And the man's reflection is similar to his person.

I think the addition of the water makes the work more contemplative.

Polka Dot Frog

I'm thinking about creating a print of this. If I ever do, I will post it here. Here's my Photoshop/Illustrator plan. You can see I used my original frog Illustrator drawing.

The Original T-shirt

Here is where I began with the design I posted yesterday. This is the t-shirt I made last June before going back to Budapest. It turns out it was unseasonably hot when I was there, so I couldn't wear it. I can wear it now here. It's chilly.

I (Heart) Buda & Pest!

The circle really is the hardest shape to design a composition on successfully. This is a variation of a t-shirt design I have made. The circle composition is for pins and stickers rather than t-shirts

If anyone wants a pin, let me know you can get one for $1.00!

Mice, Mice, Everywhere

I have been having a problem with mice in my house lately. Here is a tessellation in response to this problem.

I think this is better. I know it's only a thumbnail, but it helps to see how it will read. Let me know if you agree or disagree.

Choose Your Own Genre

I have decided that I'm going to create illustrations based on the morals from Aesop's Fables, but they are also going to be based on the idea that the "choose your own adventure" books began. You can choose which genre you would like to look at/read. I have three planned out. Here is the thumbnail of the first title box.

I need to make the genre text have less contrast so it blends in more with the background. I don't want it to have the same visual weight as the beginning of the moral.

I'm excited about this. It's a fun creative endeavor.

My New Logo

The new logo for my non-existent business. It makes me feel better when I have a bad teaching-day to think up a dream job.

I just take it a bit further by sketching out logos on my computer...

Astronaut Adventures

I like it better with the color. I know that I should change the color based on which planet he is on, but I really just wanted to get something new up.

I am open to comments or suggestions~!

Frog With Fangs

This is a character from a story I wrote in high school. I still want to illustrate it someday, so I guess this means I have officially started working on my first illustrated book.

Yee Haw!

Take that pencil away from the artist! Let's see some digital work...not quite yet.

Who wins? The good guy or the bad guy? Who is the good guy and who is the bad guy?

More Narrative

I hope it is clear what is happening. I know my perspective is a bit off on the faller and the tripper, so I have to work on that a bit. I was trying to use foreshortening to make it look like the faller is coming closer to the viewer, but he just looks like he should be WAY taller than the other guy. I need some work!

Broken Window

I know his eyes are a bit funky, but I'm pretty happy that I was able to get this far on this...

Poor guy! He is not allowed to be in this clique.

I know, I'm obsessed (see Architectural Elements blog.) I need to go back to Budapest again! Three days was not enough after 10 years.

On Humor...

Oh how our humor changes over the years...or does it? Is this punchline still funny even after 5th grade?

I have forgotten What I Was Going to Say...

This is the most recent painting I have completed...I have another one I started, but I won't probably finish it, so this is it for now.

Your Eyelids are Getting HEAVY...

Drawn in pen, and tweaked in photoshop.

You are getting very sleepy...


Some lines and shapes are heavier than others.

I Choo-Choo-Choose You.

The quotation is appropriated from The Simpsons, but I did come up with the illustration on my own.
