New Schedule

So, I have storyboarding and digital illustration, which I suppose I should be thankful for. I really want to take the digital class, but I am not convinced storyboarding will be a good fit. I have talked to Tom (Herzberg) and he thinks I'll do fine; I just don't want to be frustrated and restrained. No great portfolio pieces came out of this year.

I am super pumped for art history and art and activism, though. Both seem awesome and I think it will provide a new perspective on art for me.

There is a 3 hour break on tuesdays and thursdays, though and a 2 hour break mondays and wednesdays. I hate that, but Tom said I could paint and draw in his room if there's an open desk.

UTNE Editorial Illustration

This is a mock illustration for UTNE Magazine entitled, "The Dangers of Dairies."I based this concept on the idea of fusion; I wanted the interviewee, Gustavo, to fuse into the cow. According to the article, he was kicked by a cow and was deeply injured. Because he is an immigrant, he could not afford the best medical attention, and now the plate that the doctor secured in his skull is slipping. He experiences constant agony and is marred by the damage left by the cow. He says if he was legal, he would never spend another hour in the dairy.

I have had many challenges with this piece, (which is currently still incomplete) but am working them out as I go. I do prefer the black and white version best so I will continue to work with that copy.
