For my character development class, our final project was to make a three dimensional character to interact in a public space. I struggled pretty hard with this project, but then JME saved my life and gave me the idea to make birds (since I draw them all the time anyway). So, to interact in the environment, I took my creations to the Inner Harbor and brought scraps of bread. I set the birds up and the bread. The result was frightening. The pictures I took do not even represent just HOW many birds were surrounding me. They all were really fighting for those scraps of bread, and thus very aggressive. Pigeons and seagulls are very dirty creatures, so I didn't particularly want to be touched by them.

The hardest part of making a post on blogger is coming up with a title. I've never been good at naming things.

Anyways, here are some more images from the book I am working on. Winter break has given me the opportunity to reflect on my final thesis crit and take some of that advice and work it into the last few images of the book.

I finished all but 1 image, and I intend to finish that before I leave for LA on the 30th... which I couldn't be more happy about. Got tickets to see Justice to ring in the new years. Hopefully 2008 will be a little better than 2007!

Trees break the sidewalk, and the sidewalk skins my knees

A couple more images from the book project. These images are about saying hello to a friend, and saying you're welcome when you get a present. And about dancing dogs.

Let's go to a birthday party, shall we?

Here's some more images that I've worked on this semester, all from the children's book.

These two pages are about saying "excuse me" and "bless you" when someone burps or sneezes.

You're always worth the wait, I guess

Finals are upon me, sleep deprived nights are ahead. I have a lot of work to put up, but I'll save that for when I have more time. I got a new computer (!!!) last weekend, so I'm in the process of transferring over everything to it.

and I collaborated on some small works for the M|I|C/A Art Market. We both love those cutouts! This picture was taken with my phone, so it doesn't really do our collaborative efforts justice. They were fun to make!
