Digital Illustration

Within my style.. I believe it would be very easy to go to doing digital work because I paint in flat colors. For anyone who doesn't know me, my work is all painted with acrylic paint and I do it because I LOVE the process of mixing colors and the work that goes into doing a physical painting. For my one assignment I decided to do a full spread book cover for a field guide on birds, and it was my first digital piece. As you can see there is not much difference between the digital work and my other painted work but I think I'll stick to painting!

Pattern Design

I have been having difficult posting this particular image perhaps because the computers at school are very slow and special. But anyway this is a gridded pattern of an image that I put together by combining two paintings. 


Self Portrait

In the past self portraits have always been annoying for me to do because I would always get hung up on getting an exact likeness and wondering how I should render the figure. I think though that it's gotten to the point where I've been able to get past that and simply have fun with it. I tried to treat the face in a less stylized way then i've been doing recently, but still keep the work in relation to my current pieces. Below is the finished painting, done for John Twingley's class.
