Oh life and your colourful suprises

For my last semester of senior thesis (it seems weird to write that), my department decided to buy everyone a small Moleskin (the best sketchbook you can buy, IMO). They had each student choose one word, preferably a noun. We were then instructed to illustrate our word and bring the sketchbook in this coming Thursday. We're going to trade sketchbooks, and someone else will illustrate our words. The next week we will switch again. At the end of the semester, we get our books back and have 15 small sketches, all based around our original word. I chose the word "mechanism". I did a double page spread, but I HATE the other page of my illustration, so here's half of the illustration that I did actually like.

Laurie Rosenwald came and spoke to our class last week (which was a great surprise!), so consequently, I've been looking at her work quite a bit.

For Stephanie Jessica Leung!

I was walking down an alley the other day and noticed this beautiful graf:

Similar to this one that was around early in the fall:

Too bad the first one isn't better quality. Bad lighting and shaky hands. I was really excited to see another one of these, especially when I liked the first one so much.

My parents love animals and they especially love their dogs. Golden retrievers are their favorite breed, so for a Christmas gift this year, I did a couple of images of their dogs- the late Hannah and their new puppy, Maddie.
