I didn't realize it'd been so long since my last post! sorry to the three of you who visit. So far I haven't really posted much "finished" work...mostly sketches and here are some illustrations I've done since my time at RMCAD.

This guy's my most recent illustration, finished just the other day on my laptop. For my Illustrating Literature class we were assigned the story The Ransom of Red Chief by O. Henry. Great story and a lot of fun to visualize. This is what I suppose the cover might look like. I would encourage you to read the story! It would be nice to hear some feedback on whether you feel it works for the story or not...and it's just a good read anyway. I'm finding I really, really like narrative illustration.

This next one was done for my conceptual illustration class. The article talked about how the cells that make up our bodies are outnumbered by the bacteria living inside us. So here is my human apartment building, my first illustration fully realized in Photoshop. Wheeeee!

And finally an ink drawing I did in my first semester for my Intro to Illustration class. We were simply asked to portray an animal of our choice doing a some human activity. For some reason I liked the idea of a croc as a detective of some sort. He kinda reminds me of Sam from the Spawn comics I read growing up.
