Ugly bug ball

I wanted to illustrate one of my favorite childhood songs "The Ugly Bug Ball" by Burl Ives. So here are my attempts of making some ugly bugs. It was fun I'm going to have to find excuses to make more of them.

Here is the final illustration after many changes.

So I was trying to think of what to do for my next piece and I remembered a funny quote from the new Horton Hears a Who, Katie said "in my world everyone is a pony and they eat rainbows and poop butterflies." I thought it was ridiculous and would be funny and fun to illustrate so here are the results.

These were the many changes the pony went threw...

The final...

Fashion Photos?

Bowie's "Fashion" always comes to mind when fashion is mentioned hehe so anyways What?! Me doing fashion photography crazy huh? It is actually a great experience and I'm learning so much. Here are some of the shots taken so far...

We started off with a mannequin...

Then we moved on to real models our teacher hires from an agency in Tampa...

Some of the fashion selected by our teacher I don't agree with but we are still learning to work with colors, textures, and lighting so I guess it all works out. Check back for more shots.

Some old prints I dug up

My 1st silkscreens...

These silkscreens were eventually used on some limited edition tshirts.

Some traditional printmaking...



This was an old illustration my grandfather had done circa 1950s and I turned the line work into a silkscreen image and colored it with a monotype. Fine lines are soo hard to silkscreen I have yet to get that down but I really like how this looks like an old illustration with faded out colors.
