finding motivation to work has been especially difficult for some reason, but I've got to remain focused and get things done. Even when assignments are totally trivial as is the case for this portrait assignment for a watercolor class which I have "digitized" and will later overlay with watercolor washes or something.
Today I did yard work for a few hours, physical labor leaves a really satisfying tensity because you actually feel like you accomplished something from the soreness.

Midterms Over

without any major disasters

today I started working on a series of drawings/paintings based on photos of my friend Oliver's home which recently burned down, thankfully he and his family escaped unharmed. The photos of the wreckage are for some reason appealing to me and with Oliver's blessing I am going to continue exploring them.

first attempts, I am unsure as to ideas about color use.

myth makers

My last two myth makers assignment,

first is the Victorian style childrens book illustration of Baba Yaga's hut that moves around on a chicken leg. Baba Yaga steals children and eats them. My grandma used to tell me about her.

The Second is my anthropomorphic pulp style illustration. It definitely wasnt a subject I felt too comfortable with but Dexter inspired me to do something super creepy.
