4/7 Sins

I'm currently in the middle of a semester-long project--themed spots for the Seven Deadly Sins. I've done four, and have three more to go (yeah, I know math). I went for a circus/sideshow theme.

What the WHAT. It's a traditional painting. Oil and acrylic BABY.

For my portrait class, we had to do a portrait of a dead person (not like the person in the picture is dead, but just of someone who has died). I jumped at the opportunity to do a portrait of my favorite illustrator, Shel Silverstein.

Just how I like my men--
bald, pantless, and with hairy, skinny, pale legs. 

The idea here is to show his two sides. The kid-friendly and the inappropriate.

He's probably most famous for his children's books--The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends, Falling Up, and so on. He got his start, though, in more adult work---working as a world-travelling cartoonist for Playboy magazine (where some of my favorite work by him comes from) and writing gems like Uncle Shelby's ABZ Book.

So, from this a pantless Shel Silverstein emerges. Playing guitar in front some little kids. Super cute.

It's what I aspire to.

Painting leg hair is tricky.

Hey look.

For my Illustrator class (or Digital Graphic Illustration, but that's a bit of a mouthful, and I'm clearly too busy and important to be bothered to say it) we had to make a t-shirt design for Product(RED). 

So I put a bird on it. 

Original drawing.  I had too much fun working on it. Really!

Or a rooster, which still qualifies as a bird. We had to make it traditionally, then live trace and paint it. So I did just that.  

This shirt isn't a lame joke attempt for a serious cause. Cough, what?
