Cleaning. More old stuff.

I was tidying and sorting through some stuff when I came across my portfolio from college!  Some of the paintings are horrifically embarrassing but some of the images I still have some fond memories of making.

I am sharing my favorites as to not let these get lost into time.  The originals are long gone and all I have are some printouts that magically haven’t been destroyed since 2005.

IMAG0398This one was always one of my favorites as I loved painting the animals at the time.  This was a set of behemoths (green) in the hold of Noah’s ark with some friendly rhinos, a hippo, some weird looking elephants, and an ugly bug.



This skydiving dog got me a lot of praise at the time.  I think it was the personality/face of the dog.


IMAG0403These last two were based on some stories from Aesop’s fables.




Lack of posts and old school image

So I have not been posting recently because I have been super busy with some freelance work!  Yay!  I have been creating some 3d renders and Solidworks models for two different companies on top of trying to get some personal work done, volunteering with Chicago Bike Buddies and having a full time job.  I love being busy.

An old sketch from the past did pass my way and I thought I’d share.  A few years ago i was into combining human anatomy with other things, mainly plants.  This one however I tried to combine metal with anatomy on an 18x 24 or whatever sheet.  It is totally lost for the ages and only a crappy phone pic left! I’d love to make and finish some like this.misc 070
