I forgot, I never put this up on my blog. Just a little fun thing I was working on.

Model was my cute and lovely girlfriend, Amanda Reyes, who sadly was not making eggs as I had her pose. She finds eggs disgusting.

Anyways, image was shown in senior studio, kind of an old "good house wife" idea behind it. I was mostly inspired due to her family constantly making sexist jokes, like "get back in the kitchen" kind of thing. It is pretty funny listening to them argue.

Print making

I don't do it enough. I love it though. While working in the printmaking room, I felt really awkward as I felt out of my element. But I definitely do enjoy it and feel that I should spend more time working on some more monoprint techniques.

This project is actually an assignment from our art education department. An 18"x24" size print featuring a theme on one of these words: Transformation, sequences, change, opposite, reflection, or movement. Personally I just kind of put opposite and reflection together and just went with it. I did a few of 8"x10" prints and put a couple of them together, and cleaned them up a little. I threw the dots on it for a little bit more variation.

Jessica Newberry show!

Here is my piece for the Jessica Newberry show! When I first heard about it, I remembered that I drew here about 3 years ago, but I don't remember what for or why. Regrettably, I could not find that drawing in my sketch books, so I just made a new piece. After a bit of procrastinating (I could have had it done on Wednesday), I have finally finished the piece.

Beverly Hills Cop

Here is my piece from Beverly Hills cop. Although, it more so is just Eddie Murphy.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I really love Star Wars, although most definitely not as much as Ben Cloutier, but quite a bit. I am not necessarily a big fan of Darth Vader as much as I am a fan of Obiwan Kenobi, but it is a lot of fun to draw that helmet.

I have plans for Ben Kenobi and Han Solo soon as well. That is, if I actually keep working at the pace I am now.

Balloon Boy

If you're in Gil's senior studio class with me, you most likely saw this a couple months ago. Either way, I feel like I need to throw this up here as I do love this piece still, and it is pretty new.

Kind of an attempt at editorial. If you can't tell, its about the balloon boy incident that happened last year.

Finished Back To The Future

Here is the finished version! At least I think so... I made a last minute decision and added the yellowish stripes behind them to break up the back ground a bit more. Dunno about it yet, but I feel it is an improvement in comparison to what it was before.

Also, although it was my goal to make movie scenes and shots into pop art illustrations, my senior studio teacher has informed me to be weary of copy right and that I should just try to totally come up with new shots from movies. Although this one IS edited to be different (I spliced 2 different moments from the movie together to make this image), it might not be different enough.

So, I am going to try to branch out on my next run, and try to mix up this process a bit more.

On another note, it is 11am, and I have to come up with a lesson plan for my art education class today, so I have about 4 hours. I am just so unmotivated after beating myself to death with homework this past weekend.

88 MILES PER HOUR?!!?!?!?!??!!!

Here is the sketch for my back to the future piece.

One of my favorite pieces I have done so far. I just previously posted the sketch, and here is the final draft of it. Unless I spontaneously decide to change something on it, which I might... I sometimes do that...

WHOS THAT POKEM.... movie star?

So, my current plan for art pieces is to take movies I feel are classics, or maybe even some I enjoy for no damn reason despite their terribleness (Water World anyone?), and just recreating them in the way Roy Lichtenstein recreated comic strips. By taking scenes and characters from a movie and actually recreating them in my style, and do large prints of them. Well, here is a sketch of my first run with this idea...

If you can't tell, that is from Pulp Fiction, with Mr. Jackson, and Mr. Travolta. I realized as I was drawing this, how annoyingly generic Travolta's face is. But oh well, the goal is to recreate off of something pre-existing. I feel I am successful. At least in that sense? Maybe?
