I was just showing my roommate the Illustration and Design page on the Dawson College website, since we were having a discussion about our past art/design programs, when I came across the program's promotional video. I decided to have a look and SURPRISE! There's multiple shots of me working on my frog character sculpture in second year. I forgot how much fun sculpting is.

"The obscurist," "the town crier," "the sympathy-seeker,"and "the lurker." These spots were drawn for my editorial class for an article on facebook personality types. I thought my facebook-blue ink would be an appropriate colour choice for this assignment:)

Hugh Jackman

Portrait of Hugh Jackman. Strangely enough, there's always a picture of him floating around my class.

Ink Drawing of Girl

Yesterday I decided to try out some new brushes and have a little fun drawing for myself. I did a few drawings but I think this one turned out best:)

Business Cards

Here is my almost-final business card designs. Please let me know what you think... I have so much trouble designing things for myself since I never know what I want!

Kagan's portrait of me

Today I had my portrait drawn by the talented illustrator Kagan McLeod. This was drawn during his editorial illustration class at Sheridan as an in-class demo. I think he captured a good likeness.

More Thesis Posters!

So here is the final version of "The Importance of Being Ernest" and my new "Faust" poster. These will be my last posters for my thesis since I've decided to switch it up a bit and illustrate book covers for this class (there's only so much room for posters on my display board for my graduation exhibit in April.) I had a lot of fun with these and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out considering I was lost the first few weeks of the semester figuring out how I was going to approach them. Again, I'm always open to comments and constructive criticism:)

Lady Gaga Portait

For my editorial class we had a portrait assignment where we each had to draw names out of a hat and illustrate that person. Fortunately, I drew Lady Gaga and decided to use a minimalist approach since her style is so recognizable.

Thesis poster number 2!

Here's the second of five play posters I'm illustrating for my thesis. This play is the Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde... One of my favorites!

First poster for thesis!

For my thesis this semester, i chose to illustrate a series of play posters, the first being My Fair Lady. I think it turned out pretty well but I'd love some feedback (as always!)

Illustration for Tennis Article

In my editorial class we each had to chose an article to illustrate (without full knowledge of what the article was about) for our first project. I thought it would be fun to chose one about tennis titled "Risque Business." So here's the final...definitely risque and a lot of fun to illustrate I might add.

Rethink Process: Part 3-the final illustration

Final illustration for grad show. Incase you guys didn't see the other parts of my process (where I explained what this illustration is all about), I had to illustrate a stat about my illustration class for a grad book Sheridan is putting out. My stat was that 93% of our graduating class likes drawing in 2D and 7% of us like drawing in 3D....but, I'm kind of enjoying both!

Rethink Process:Part 2

Illustrator time!

Rethink Process

So we have this grad project to illustrate a stat about our class. My stat was that 93% of us like drawing in 2D and 7% like drawing in 3D. I chose to do the 2D part in collage and pen and the 3D part using photoshop and illustrator. I thought a violin would be a good metaphor to use and the bow next to it to signify the percentages.

So here are a three new pieces from a character assignment for school. We had to illustrate a number of characters from a list so here's my avitar, nonna (italian grandmother), and hipster. The last is a a girl on the metro wasn't for any school assignment but I wanted to try using blue face tones....don't ask me why, I just woke up today wanting to play with colour :)

(From the top down) the first was from a small black and white photo of a man smoking. There was something about his look that was really intriguing so I thought I'd use it as inspiration for a piece. The second is a sketch of my mom. One great thing about holidays at my parent's place is that there are always people around to doodle. I also had some fun with the baboon image, i just had to draw him when I saw's the super intense eyes....a little creepy. The last image is more narrative depicting the tortoise and the hare in Aesop's fable. I like how the sketch turned out so a final piece is in the making.

And a belated happy holidays to everyone following!
