Crappy piano music...

Well, one day, that green blob on her head will read as a hat.

Take care.

All eyes led in evil...

This is turning into a surprisingly sentimental/emotional piece. I wanted it to be really sensitive and delicate, but this is how it is developing and it kind of came out of nowhere.

The basic visual concept here is the x-ray. The writing that was meant to accompany this had to do with science as art, and I tried to combine the concepts. Obvious, but it makes for a beautiful visual metaphor, I think.

In the tradition of my entire senior project, there is another glaring error on this piece but...I'll let you figure it out.

Hint: it has nothing to do with the anatomy.

Take care.

Something rare...

Here's some typography I whipped up for my book design. Original writing.

I haven't done considered typography in years and I really like these. Those experts will probably say mean things about it.

Take care.

Hodge podge a lodge...

Here's a bunch of little pieces I've done recently (when I should have been doing senior thesis stuff).

1. "I f***ing want to tear you apart."
Special/custom bookmark for JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye (which i am currently reading; first time I've read fiction in about a year)

2. "Deliver us from whackness!"
I really loved Freaknik: The Musical. Here's a couple of my favorite characters. The Tall Gangsta (unnamed, Snoop Dogg) and Trap Jesus (Lil' Wayne). I don't know anything about rap, its culture, or Freaknik, but that was a great cartoon.

3. "Quit acting gay."
My favorite characters from Hark! A Vagrant: the mystery solving teens. They show up a few times, give the comic a good read through.

Take care.

I could wait forever...

To say that progress has been slow would be a great understatement. I'm tired of this.

Take care.

My brain hurts!

Here's the beginning of the phrenology piece. I had to cut the skulls out of the original paper because the composition went too far to the edge.

*sigh* Very little of the thesis work is going the way I want it to.

Take care.
