You can always tell I like a book...

...when I draw my own versions of the characters.

Here's a quick sketch of Katniss from Hunger Games. Just her face. Maybe I'll do the rest of her some other time. Maybe.

Who am I kidding. I'll definitely draw the rest of her sometime.



Leaving Oxford - Redone

Remember THIS piece that I did just over a year ago?

I decided to redo it. I ended up doing a whole new one without Mrs. Coulter and her monkey. I like it better. I have certainly come a long way.

Here it is. I wish I had had the time to use pen and ink for the linework, but that's okay. Still lots of work to be done on it.


Jessica Hische

A couple weeks ago Designer Jessica Hische came to the Universtiy in neighboring town to lecture. It was awesome. SHE was awesome. I really loved everything she said, and it was nice to be able to laugh about art jokes.

I really admire her career. She is doing something so new and different, and she's doing it well. It was inspiring for me to see a woman make such a name for herself in a such male-heavy profession. I'm going into Illustration, and right now it seems like my competition is mainly women. But when you look at the business it's mostly men.

Anyway. Everyone should go and look at her site. It's fantastic. My favorite things are the Daily Drop Caps.

Here are Sean and I with Jessica. Photo credit: Kristin Gulledge.

PS. I have an internship next summer in NYC. :D
