SOPA, Not Soup, Google

The one in the 3rd row on the far right is the cutest.
What? Again? Sorry. I just happened to finish a few things at the same time/remembered a few things I had forgotten to post.

This here is a mock-cover for Time magazine based on the whole SOPA business for my digital painting class. I definitely had the classic Soviet propaganda posters on the mind (Maybe it's the time of year. At this time last year I wrote a paper on it. Some people think about Valentine's Day. I just think about Eastern European/Asian politics of the 20th century?) and wanted to play around with pattern and repetition to convey some sort of overwhelming and uniform force.

Look at me trying to explain my thought process.

I'm still here! Clearly not updating for almost two weeks (gasp) means you should be concerned. Things have been getting busier and busier, and I'm in a flurry to finish a few things before spring break (more so because that's when they're due, rather than me having plans to accomodate---sorry to disappoint anyone who thought I was the glamorous jetsetting type).

In addition to homework, there have been some other cool things going on, for instance, I had a piece accepted into the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Competition Show! Myself and three other super awesome illustration students at CCS were accepted. Check it all out here and here!

Anyways, here's a little personal piece. I should have some other work ready to post soon.

Look Familiar?

I decided to revisit this.

Don't get too jealous about how I spend my Friday nights. I did this Thursday.

One of my classes this semester is an illustration head and portrait class. The in-class work is painting and drawing from a model, with more editorial-ish portrait assignments outside of class. I haven't had a figure drawing/painting class in TOO long. It's one of my favorite parts of illustration, so imagine how happy I am being in this class. I'm pretty much shitting rainbows (if girls pooped).

So here's some recent in-class business.

 I'm trying to push myself with media that I really like (ink) and media that I'm not so familiar with (oil paints). I've had a fear of oil paints since winter semester last year, so it's nice learning that it's not the blend-y demon of the painting world.
