On the last day of the semester, after my last final and before heading home, I spent a little while sketching this cow skull that I found. I was half asleep after 2 back to back all-nighters but it was awesome to just draw for the sake of drawing (and without the looming pressure of a grade). Grades are a good incentive but I don't have tons of work from this last semester that I am super proud of. I find that my work is best when it is not overworked. Right now I am overworking a lot of pieces.
I have a few professors that have really pushed me in some new directions over the last few months which is most appreciated. It is great to have a lot of insight and exposure to new techniques and ways of approaching art work.
This was a final project for professors Dave Kasparek and Dr. Gene Van Dyke, professors of Visual Literacy. The project was to interpret one of the Psalms and put it into a 24-page book. I chose Psalm 71 and used abstract images and pop-up characters. These are some of my favorites. Thanks again to Lisa for the photographs. (You can see her blog here.
This is the final project for Daniel Finch's Drawing II class. The assignment was to take the given title ("Me and My Shadow") and draw it somehow. I made a book cover and put in onto a blank book with my own sketches into it. Thanks Lisa for taking the photos.
