I made this poster for my friend's band, called In The Audience, which is based back home in ye olde Portland, Maine!

I've never made a music event poster before. It was fun!

Although, I do still struggle a lot with digital painting. Hopefully it's not too apparent here. > _ >

Inner Demon

Here's a sketch I did recently for my Monster class. The prompt was "inner demon".

I ended up scanning this and coloring it in Photoshop, but I'm not particularly happy with how it came out, so I'm not sure if I'll get around to putting it up here. Probably at some point I will. I don't have the file on my computer right now anyway though so it'll have to wait. :B

I loooooove animal skullssss

Here's some rough drawings of a character I've been drawin' for a year or two, named Umbra. He's a mischievous forest spirit! Part stag.

Should I give him antlers? He had antlers for a while, but they were hard to draw, especially next to his big ears, so I took them away.

Recent work!

I just got back from spring break! And what a nice spring break it was. Had an amazing birthday, took pictures of things, ate COPIOUS, COPIOUS amounts of food... It even snowed, like, eight inches on Friday, and I was totally cool with it because I didn't have to walk anywhere for once! It was just pretty.

Got basically nothing done though, which is scary. Still struggling to find an internship, and things are progressing painfully slowly. There's always a part of me that says, WHY DON'T YOU JUST GIVE UP AND GO BACK TO WORKING RETAIL FOR THE SUMMER. But alas, I know from experience that would be soul-crushing. SO. We keep plugging away.

Speaking of plugging away, I just got some new work from this semester photographed! I posted it on my portfolio site as well ( ). Czech it out:

Self-portrait in oil. I've never painted my own face in profile before. It was fun!

Oil portrait of my good friend Dustin
"Beauty vs. Revulsion". Oil, beeswax, scratch technique

A (disproportionate) portrait of my favorite favorite favorite musician, the magical Sufjan Stevens. Oil.

HHHHH IT'S MY BIRTHDAY and also some more sketches.


So that's really cool. 

On a different note, here's some sketches I did during an awesome Art History class I took last semester about Femmes Fatales. 

Back in the late 19th/early 20th centuries, it was common to think of women as being rather dangerous and untrustworthy creatures, as far as their supposed seductive/destructive powers went. Thus, there was a large fascination with Greek mythology involving dangerous female creatures, like Medusa, Sphinxes, and Nymphs.

That girl in the parka on the left has nothing to do with anything, really, she just happens to be on the same page as the nymph.

Well, no, that's not really the reason, but at this point it sure is shaping up to be.

My fantastic parents, for my birthday, bought me a new Nikon 3100, and I've been dicking around with it all afternoon. Since all I've really done is sit on my couch watching movies on my laptop with my cat sleeping next to me, I've mostly been testing it out on him. I love it so far!
