Zephyr









I dared to create a self-contained, small, repetitious comic for Mr.Ralph.  I like it.  And it looks mighty tasty.

Baba Yaga



Here's a little diddy for senior thesis.  While not in her chicken leg hut, the Baba Yaga often enjoys flying around in her mortar while perusing the surrounding forest.  Occasionally she will feast upon little children.  I enjoyed this one a lot.  This is good because I feel I have recently been stuck in a funk.  I also feel very good about the color pallette which is a little new to me.  Its safe to assume these colors will be sticking around for a little while longer.  A step in the right direction.

Here was a fun project for Brian's class.  We were to develop comic about a character being followed by a "stranger."  It seemed a good topic for the horror genre so this is page one of two.  Its a bummer we didn't get to finish the second page in class so it may be awhile before the end of the piece is shown.  What a shame.

The Plague's No Good



This is the final for my representation of some Norwegian folklore wherein the black plague is embodied as an old hag who would roam the hillsides of Norway sweeping away life.  Eerie.

This is a piece very close to final.  Details will follow once i post the final but as of now it would be greatly appreciated if i could get some feedback on the piece before i forever avert my gaze from it.

Hydra


Tom Gauld FTW

Recently I have been coming up with some successful imagery for Brian Ralph's Sequential Art class.  I seem to have misinterpreted the type of work that was expected from the course, most importantly the fact that the pieces are generally supposed to be "comics" in a more traditional sense.  Although I have found myself to enjoy numerous comics I am not as keen on creating them.  The past few entries have been more along the lines of "art pieces that are sequential" more so than comics.  In class I have been critiqued on my use of the same size panel for each image.  It may be something I need to move past, or perhaps something I need to strengthen.  I am not entirely sure yet, but i do enjoy them the way they are.  What do you think?

Linocut



Sequential Print I made for fun.  It felt good.

Sherlock Abode



Here is a work in progress for Brian Ralph.  I am establishing a pitch packet for my rendition of Sherlock Holmes.  This is a still of what the environment of such imagery would resemble.  Any feedback would help.  Im still fiddling with parts of it and know it needs quite a bit more work.

I laugh in the face of heartbreak.



Here is a sketch/color test for the current judging at MICA for the "Words on Wheels" MTA poem-athon.  My poem was about the heartbreak and struggle of love and a relationship.  BAH!

I only made one of these to become popular.

I feel like I should say something epic.  Shame.






Here's a quick color study and a piece devoted to the complete revamp of an advertisement mascot for Brian Ralph's Character Development.  I present to you, the TRIX rabbit.  Simple.
