Twenty twenty twenty four hours to go...

HAYWARD, Wis. (Oct. 17) -- Shoppers in a Wisconsin grocery store got an unexpected surprise when a 125-pound black bear wandered inside and headed straight for the beer cooler.

Here is a piece that landed me a good crit. I wasn't the proudest I've ever been, but given the circumstances I was satisfied with the piece. The forties need some adjustment. JonReinfurt told me to go get reference, then quickly corrected himself by adding "on the internet!"

stuffy nose, scratchy throat, stomach from hell, and three drunk bears

Finishing all my assignments except my thesis sketch, which is due Tuesday. These are some bears I drew for Jon Reinfurt's class on Thursday.

Notice that the koala and Chewbacca are both pissed. Can you guess why? (Science class)

Too many cats in the kitchen.

DUDLEY, Mass. -A Massachusetts town has made it illegal to own more than three cats without getting a special license. Voters at a town meeting in Dudley added language to a town bylaw on Monday night that makes it illegal to own more than three cats without a $50 residential kennel license.
The article was in response to a neighborhood feud over the 15 cats owned by Mary Ellen Richards. The Telegram & Gazette of Worcester reports that one neighbor claimed the cats have ruined his yard. Richards has put her home up for sale and says she plans to move to a "more cat-friendly community."
Dudley is about 60 miles southwest of Boston.

Only in art school can your homework be about monkeys and beer.

I am so so happy with this, it's my favorite piece of the whole semester thusfar. After revising the first version, I thought "Damn it! Why didn't I pick beer bottles for my thesis?!" (Though I'm sure I'll have just as much fun with what I did pick... SECRETS TO BE REVEALED SPRING 2010)

Third time's the charm.

Well, that cliche isn't necessarily true. This is the third time I've redone this project. I'm still not entirely satisfied with it, but the progress I've made gives me some hope. I like the urine a lot more than the venue name/date/time.

Ooooh! Whoooo sent me mail?

I designed a Halloween greeting card, complete with stickers that I cut out with an xacto knife at 1 in the morning while people outside celebrated the Phillies making it to the World Series.

Hey look, I'm on the internet for something actually worthwhile!

So I won this contest and now I'm on Art in the Age's blog! My grilled cheeses are going to be worn by the official volunteers of FeelGood. Woo! Hooray for me and my resume!

And that's JonWeed. He used to sit next to me at my internship. His name is one word.

Zombies and shit.

I was the face model for all of them.
Oh I'm too sexy for my grave, too sexy for my grunts
...but not too sexy for your brains! Gruahnawuhh!

Cougar of the Month Calendar

Presenting Miss August, Ginger Pear.
This 38 year old blonde bombshell enjoys sushi bars, cocktails, tanning, day spas, and the company of her strapping young Asian American love boy Timmy.

My mom hates this.

You fail at type, you fail at Life.

And boy did I fail on this one.
No joke, the first tears of the semester came about after this class. I finished the first copy the day before it was due, and hated it. I spent the next twenty four hours making another piece. Ironically enough, when all was said and done, the second version was also a failure.
I have to redo this.

They said "Do whatever you want"...

So I just drew how I want life to be. That's me as Han Solo and Danny DeVito as Chewbacca. I said it was pinup art for my new tv series in which Danny DeVito and I are roommates and go on all kinds of craaaaazy adventures.

The day my caffeine addiction got the best of me.

This is a throw back. I have since learned to live with only two cups of coffee a day, and the occasional soda here and there.

The Tiny Traveler's Guide to International Expeditions

Just for fun on my last two days of summer.
Now all I want to do is make a complete guide.
Another thing on the "when I have time" list.

High fives. Deep Sea Jive.

I'm thinking this should be a congratulatory card in which the inside reads "Way to go man!"

Toast Book

I would have never thought that product design or stationary would be my cup of tea, but alas I have found a brand new love! This might be my future. Hmm...

It's about the economy.

A year ago everyone was saying "It's about the war." Nowadays, it's all about the economy.

Sexy teen twins, steamy bathroom scene!

Andrew says "Man, Kristin is REAL good at drawin' girls."
What can I say, I have a good model.

This is about why humans need space from society here and there.

I have a thing for portraits, can you tell?

Acrylic, my old friend.
That is not a zippo, that is a t-shirt design and poor compositional skills.
