Spring 2012

I've been up to a bit this semester, too! Most of my illustration projects have been for Junior Illustration II with Alan Comport.

This piece was an editorial illustration for an article called "The Upside of Being an Introvert." (Also: it's for sale here through Society6, along with a few other illustrations!) Here are two spot illustrations from the same assignment:

This is another piece for Junior Illustration, based on the song "America" by Paul Simon, particularly these lines:

"Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping
"I'm empty and aching and I don't know why."

(some of my personal all-time favorite song lyrics!)

This was an in-class assignment. We put our names through a "Blues name generator" and then drew our blue personas! This is mine, Peg Leg Legs Davis.

Feral Sweater Boy on a Rooftop

Sorry for getting out of the habit of posting here! I'll make sure to be better about that in the future. Here's a piece from the end of last semester!

This was my final for Lifestyle Illustration. It was actually one piece of a pair, but the other one never did get finished to my satisfaction. Anyway, this piece explores my fascination with "Feral Sweater Boys," a term I coined based on the disheveled, layered looks that were all the rage in the fall.
