Reporter - Beginners Guide to Urban Exploring

Article for the Reporter. Came out pretty good though one person said that it could have been 'grittier' and I could see it going in that direction as well. I suppose what I was going for was some lighter/airier colors since these people are beginners and not veteran (gritty) explorers. Overall I like this one a lot. (The cropping is strange because the illustration ran in the upper left hand corner of the article.)

Spider Cook

Rejected concept for an editorial illustration about starting a new business. Turned out pretty interesting despite the disconnect. It could however definitely be about becoming a chef or spiders with interesting characteristics (ones that mate in mid air, how they catch their food, etc...).

Bell Jar

Project about creating the feeling associated with a secret society. The concept here is supposed to illustrate an inviting, warm environment that the outside viewer, in their cold and rainy world, desires to become part of. Took about 8 hours with concept and execution. Watercolors and Acrylic on Bristol board.

Nature Studies

Studies for Sketchbook class. I was particularly loving mushrooms this week. Sketches in graphite.

Gummy Bears

Gummy Bear article about mixing drinks. Haven't used Photoshop in while so I was pretty pleased about how this turned out.

Reporter: Game as a Product vs. Game as a Service

Article from the Reporter dealing with games that offer micro-transactions and downloadable content vs. quality games that endure the test of time.

All Night

Owl Boxer. I really like how this came out. 'All Night' because owls are out hunting at night...looking for prey.

Finicky B/W

Illustration for Sketchbook class. I actually prefer the way it looks in black and white to my colored version. The plan is to take it into Photoshop and add color.
