I wish I could say the watercolor is mine own, but it's actually painted by my illustration teacher, Jose Villarrubia, who did a watercolor demo in class today and used me as a model. Life drawing as usual. I got a good likeness of the model (except for the missing arm), so I am a little pleased. The longer poses promised to me in the coming weeks will be greatly appreciated.

My first print of the year at top, and two color versions of my most recent print. Due next is our big independent appropriation of Jon Rappleye's work, after which we continue independent work and finish editioning Jon's prints.

I have made a blog now, because blogs are easy to maintain and good venues for instantaneous feedback. Also, since blogs are so informal, I won't feel bad about posting crummy sketches or failed projects. Updates should be regular, and by that I mean whenever I feel like it. Below is a fairly comprehensive summary of my doings so far. Feel free to leave feedback, especially the valuable (read: critical) kind. Don't hold back--I can't punch you through the internet. Yet.

Here's a sketch for my Herakles assignment (telling the story of Herakles in 1930's New York). I thought the tight penwork might suggest that era even more successfully than costuming and architecture, so I'm going to stick with it (and abandon color) for the finals.
