Value Study - Carry Around

Illustration for a song... The Annuals "Carry Around".

Redrew this image too much. Finally found a somewhat happy medium with this one. Here's the value study.
Thinking about doing acrylic/charcoal underwash...and finishing digital...
we'll see. I have two days.

The Brothel

Worked my butt off on this one with hopes of getting it into Illest... and it got in! Illest of Ill 09' woop woop!

The scan is terrible.. there's a glare on some parts of the painting... but.. you get the idea. :)

Bitches N' Bubbles

Got into Illest of Ill 09' with this...
Didn't think it would actually get in when I submitted so I titled it "Bitches N' Bubbles"
...and then it got in. hahah. Greatness.

Illustration Academy

So I've been a busy baby since school got out. Starting June 1 - July 17, I've been in the Illustration Academy working my ass off. It's kind of like a super expensive bootcamp for artists. And let me tell you, it's worth every penny. I happened to recieve the full scholarship for the program by pure luck, thanks to George Pratt's recommendation and Jon English's kindness to reel me into it last minute. Couldn't ask for a better birthday present considering I turned 21 two days later.Anyhow - met and worked with some incredible illustrators including George Pratt(hero), Jon English (leader), Jon Foster (a personal fav.), Doug Chayka(badass), Mark English (the legend), Brent Watkinson (hilarious), Anita Kunz, Barron Storey (AHHMAZING speaker!), Sterling Hundley (<3), C.F.Payne, Gary Kelley, and so much moreee! Okay. And now on to some things I've done. We've had specific assignments each week and only one week to execute it from start to finish...including thumbnails, value/color studies, tight sketches, and the final execution.. which usually didnt happen till saturday/sunday night for me. Can't say I'm in love with everything I've produced here.. but it's all been successful. :) The first two pieces are parts of my process, neither the final. The first, a color study for an assignment titled "A Slice of Sarasota", and the second is the final tight sketch for a piece where we had to illustrate a "conversation". The last two pictures are finals.. all though I plan on going in and putting more work into both. I chose Snoop Dogg for a "conceptual portrait" assignment given by Anita Kunz... turned out to be one of my favorites. Portrayed him as a iconic figure. Annd the last picture.. well, haha.. the assignment was to illustrate one of the seven deadly sins and I was given the sin Envy... and it needs no further explanation. ;) I'll post the other two finals next time, along with two other pieces I've done.

Last one...

Came up with this image for my poetry book. Kind of dig it...what do you think?

Oh, and...don't make fun of my poetry.

First time doing acetone pen transfers... couple came out a little rough.
